Summary

On October 15, everyone in the world vanished. Well, almost everyone. Some were left behind, attempting to piece together what happened, find their loved ones, and survive. But they are not alone.

Season Two picks up where Season One left off. One man finds himself on a mysterious island that holds secrets, and perhaps even answers, to what happened on October 15. A group finds itself taking refuge at The Sanctuary, a religious compound with an enigmatic leader called The Prophet. A serial killer finds himself leading an unlikely group of survivors. A young man searches to prove himself to his group, and avoid being bullied ever again. A young child is called to perform another miracle at great personal cost. Every decision. Every action. Every dream. Every alliance. Every secret. Every betrayal.

It all comes down to this - the stunning season two finale that will have you on the edge of your seat - and then knock you to the floor with the most insane, most WTF?!-unforgettable season finale yet!

Why ever did I buy this?

When I read part one of this series, I thought it was terrible. An unconvincing post-apocalyptic tale told in tired, cliche-ridden writing. And yet... something about it drew me in and, when I'd finished the first part, I did find myself wanting to read the second. I really don't know why -- I guess it's a bit like ordering a pizza that's too big, and feeling that you have to eat the whole thing.

This volume is no better. The characters are no more compelling, the story no more original, and the writing still full of worn-out cliches. Still, I read (listened) right up to the last word; again, for no reasons I am able to explain. There's really nothing about this book I would make me recommend it -- as a literary endeavour it fails in just about every conceivable way. But, for some reason, it still got me hooked.

I've just discovered that there are a gazillion further parts to the series, so I think it's time to break whatever hold it has over me, and move on to something else. After all, you might be able to squeeze in that huge pizza but, when you've finished, you're going to wish you hadn't. So I'm quitting while I'm ahead.

Brilliant Continuation of a Good Story

Where does Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Great character development and a strong story, performed by excellent actors makes this a great continuation of the "Yesterday;'s Gone saga.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I am only familiar with a few of the narrators but each one did an excellent job making the characters both believable and accessible.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Finding out it was even better than series one, which I didn't think could be possible!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mary because she reminds me of me.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

Luka, I just love the way the narrator manages to bring out the 8 year old boy in an adults body!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Trust no-one.

Any additional comments?

Disappointing

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and couldn't wait for what i thought was the concluding second book, well i finished the second book and was disappointed, the fresh writing had gone there's no fluency and my fear is Yesterday's Gone will continue much the same as the tv series Lost did, lost and incoherent.
I shall not listen to the rest.

Stop at season 3 !!!!!

Spoilers !!!
Writing this to save you the effort of realising the series seriously jumps the shark after season 3.
Season 1 was really good.
Season 2 was a worthy sequel.
Season 3 explained enough to satisfy and to my mind was a good end point story wise.
Season 4...hmmmm, starting to drag and contradict several elements of the first 3 seasons.
Season 5... this is getting silly and when did Desmond become Agent Smith from the Matrix ?
Season 6... what the hell am i listening too ?.....it practically rewrites all of the plot points of the previous seasons, the characters drop several I.Q points almost over night.
It set up plot points only to totally ignore them only paragraphs later and never return to them.
example: They discover that the aliens can shape shift and adopt the appearence of anyone (OK its The Thing's storyline) ....but at no point do the charaters feel it worth mentioning to the rest of the resistance ??????
also i never really worked out if this was an alien story or a spiritual story. seemed to flit between the two concepts.

I'm writting this review becasue i think the sense of disapointment i got. As mentioned, the first books are really very good but its almost like the authors got bored and started writting a different story.

I would say that the performances were brilliant and i must admit that although i didnt like how the series went it did have probably one of the best characters of any story i've ever read/heard. Borecio Wolfe is just brilliant and his language was absolutely amazing, had me laughing out loud several times.

in summary, stop at season 3....maybe season 4 but seriously dont waste your time with the last two seasons....they will just make you angry.

Different narrators sometimes throw me

Having different narrators for chapters is good until they do each others voices. Really throws you in the story.
That aside a fantastically unilabs take on the usual zombie genre. More sci-fi-esque.

Very good, except for one narrator.

Where does Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The lower end. But that's not terrible as I feel like i have listened to a lot of truly excellent books.

Would you recommend Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 to your friends? Why or why not?

Maybe. But only because the character Boricio.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

This question strikes at the heart of why I will not continue the series. Whichever narrator is reading the "Luca" chapters (the story is broken down into POV chapters) is just awful. Luca is an 8 year old boy and I guess the narrator is trying to sound 8. He does not do a good job of it. I'd have no problem if he gave the character of Luca a baby-ish voice and persona when he speaks, but to carry it over for an entire chapter is a bad choice, in my opinion.Ray Chase crushes it as Boricio, though. That almost makes up for it.

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

Not really.

Any additional comments?

Quitting the series here.

Season One of Yesterday's Gone was so/so. I was curious enough about the story line and characters to give Season Two a try, but 12 hours and 17 minutes into it, I quit.

First, I don't want to knock the narrators -- they do the best they can. R.C. Bray and Ray Chase are two of my all time favorites. In both Season One the producers seem to have made a couple of mistakes paring voices to characters, and in Season Two the continuity of characterizations seems to fall apart to a large extent. But that isn't enough of a reason for me to quit a series mid-stride like this.

The reason I'm giving up is that after 28 hours of listening I've grown to really dislike many of the characters and find the scenes to be overtly gross and depraved. I don't usually stand on any kind of moral high ground with my ingestion of sci-fi...I'm fine with reprehensible characters doing horrible things. I just need it to be worth letting into my head, you know? When likable characters begin to turn bad and dislikeable characters do foul things for no reason but shock value, I begin to wear out. When that becomes the standard, episode after episode, I quit.

The series is massive -- six seasons? More? And so many of the reviews are really positive. I'm willing to chalk this up to me just not getting something that's there for everyone else. But based on my own experiences thus far, I can't and won't recommend the Yesterday's Gone series to anyone.

Please sort out the narration!

What did you love best about Yesterday's Gone: Season 2?

The story is great and engaging. Ray Chase (doing Boricio) is AMAZING and I'm definitely going to search for more books read by him. R.C Bray delivers an excellent performance as well. My favorite narrators.

What did you like best about this story?

I can't guess what's going to happen.

Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I can't blame the narrators. Some are amazing while the others are OK. What I did really HATE was the fact that (in order to save money?) some characters are played by different narrators. You get used to Boricio being narrated by Ray Chase when all of a sudden, when he meets Luca, Maxwell Glick who's doing Loca is also doing Boricio. He even pronounces the name Boricio differently. The two narrators are so different (Chase sounds like a hardass pervert criminal, while Maxwell sounds like a kid) that it totally ruined the experience for me. Can't you have both narrators together for such scenes?, common! I'd pay double to get the book read right.

Any additional comments?

Sort out the narration. Chase should do Boricio - ALWAYS. Bray should do Brent - ALWAYS. Maxwell should do Luca - ALWAYS. You messed up the book!

What the....? Where did I miss half the story?

It's as if the author forgot what he had written before and started this season in the middle. No link to past events just jump straight in to totally different situations. No resolution of previous cliffhangers.

After 20 chapters the story has some of the same characters and some of the same environment but some massive jump occurred between the end of season 1 and the start of season 2.
This could've been a different story set in the same "universe" but it definitely isn't a continuation.
I don't want to have to read a third of the way through the second season before coming to some thread leading back to the first season.

I tried several times but I've given up on this series now.

An awesome story with incredible narration

If you could sum up Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 in three words, what would they be?

Bizarre, Exciting, Roller-Coaster

What was one of the most memorable moments of Yesterday's Gone: Season 2?

Multiple moments- Luca's struggle/experience with growing "older"

Which scene was your favorite?

Boricio's introduction to The Sanctuary

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both- multiple times. Or grinning ear-to-ear during one of Boricio's creative "rants"- quite imaginative! :)

Any additional comments?

LOVE IT! A Twist to your typical apocalypse

I picked up season 1 on a whim because it has some of my favorite narrators. I was HOOKED by the halfway point of the first chapter. I listed non stop & then....... BAM the ever dreaded "end of the book music". my heart dropped. But alas, there was MORE! immediately got season 2 and sunk back into my escape. now, that dreaded music hit my again & I'm onto season 3. I'm almost afraid to start because I know that soon this adventure will be over! WHAT will I do then?!

Two word. Bericio Wolf.

This is the only character that held my interest through the entire book. The narrator of this character did an awesome job.

Riveting and captivating!

Would you listen to Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 again? Why?

This book is worth reading again and again in case that you might have missed details, As for me, I cannot wait for Season 3 as Season 2 left off in a most horrific way!

What other book might you compare Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 to and why?

There are many books written about apocalyptic, end-of-days but until the series ends I can't say how they might compare since the authors have taken the series to new places that make the ending hard to predict.

Which scene was your favorite?

For some strange reason, I'm fascinated by the scenes where "Boricio" has his side of the story told. The person who reads his scenes brings him to life by providing the listener with an enrichment of emotions to Boricio's thoughts and language.

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

Near the end of Season 2 as the revolt takes place, I found myself unable to believe the outcome! It had me in tears.
