Publisher's Summary

A brilliant high-concept thriller - a debut with all the intrigue of Gone Girl and the drama of Before I Go to Sleep. Just how do you solve a murder when you can remember only yesterday?

There are two types of people in the world. Those who can remember only yesterday and those who can also recall the day before. You have just one lifeline to the past: your diary. Each night you write down the things that matter. Each morning your diary tells you where you were, who you loved and what you did.

Today the police are at your door. They say that the body of your husband's mistress has been found in the River Cam. They think your husband killed her two days ago. Can you trust the police? Can you trust your husband? Can you trust yourself?

    Story
    "Unusual storyline and clever plot"
    What made the experience of listening to Yesterday the most enjoyable?

    Really it was the unusual story that made it enjoyable. I have not read anything quiet like it so it made a change from the usual psychological plots I have enjoyed. However I did feel that it could have gone a lot further with the whole concept of the loss of memory. I could not really understand the point of the Hans character and his own memory issues in relation to the plot as a whole and his relation to Sophia was never really resolved. So a good story but some how it fell short of it's potential.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sophia, I loved the ironic way she was portrayed by Indira Varma. She was clever and witty and I enjoyed her chapters the best.


    What three words best describe Indira Varma and Rory Kinnear ’s voice?

    Indira's voice was engaging, clever and addictive.Rory's voice was perhaps the most irritating I have ever heard in an audio book, specifically the voice he gave to Hans, truly dreadful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were not really any moments that moved me but a few that made me go Ahhh interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed this book apart from the sections that Hans narrated. Generally though I thought it could have been so much better and the characters developed far more. The twist at the end was clever and I had not anticipated this but the trigger behind it was weak. There were also large chunks of the plot backstory that were never explored or explained and at the end the reader was just left with loose ends.

    Story
    "Absolutely brilliant"

    Set in a surreal version of the world in 2015 divided into mono and duo human beings monos can only remember 1 day and duos two days and all heavily rely on iDiaries to remember their past. A duo writer and aspiring politician and his mono house wife are confronted with the sins of their past triggered by the discovery of a dead body. In the course of the story is becomes clear that everybody has their secrets and that nothing is black and white. While in hindsight many things become clear, nothing is really predictable.
    A brilliant story performed by two of the finest actors Indira Varma and Rory Kinnear. While a shared narration not always works, on this occasion it is a brilliant way of allowing the listener to dive into this surreal world.
    Best audiobook for a very long time!

    "Unbelievably good."

    I had been waiting for this to come out having read all the pre-pub hype.
    Was not disappointed, it is everything it claims to be. Fast-paced, unstoppable, very cleverly put together and above all, thrilling!
    For anyone who enjoyed Girl on a Train or Gone Girl. Highly recommend.

    "Interesting sci fi crime drama"

    The premise of the book is a world where people one remember certain things. It took me a little while to get my head round it but then I enjoyed it, though there were bits where I felt it didn’t fully work. Nevertheless, it was entertaining and had suspense and i enjoyed it.

    "Great concept!"

    This is a good book, I enjoyed it and it’s got a few twists and turns that are great! There are a few bits about the concept that are a little difficult to believe and you could pick holes in those but taken for what it is, a work of fiction, it’s an entertaining read.

    "fantastic how the story builds "
