About the Author

Sean Platt and David Wright are Kings of the Serial, with their ambitious schedule of releasing a book per week in 2012.

With more than 200 five star reviews, their post-apocalyptic serial, "Yesterday's Gone," has drawn comparisons to Stephen King's "The Stand," ABC's "Lost," and AMC's "The Walking Dead." The indie writing duo are aiming to be known as the HBO or AMC of Kindle, with a new, character-driven serialized thriller every week.

Their books, between 14,000-24,000 words depending on the title, are called episodes, with six episodes making up each season of their titles. They're currently writing four series, including "Yesterday's Gone," "WhiteSpace," "Available Darkness," and "ForNevermore."

This first episode hooks you in within minutes and leaves you wanting more. Right now!
You can't help but become invested immediately in the characters that have been created so vividly. Each one is so unique, I will be contemplating about them and what is next for them until the next installment.

First off I want to say - the format the authors have chosen is perfect for those of us who walk around with a Kindle stuck in our hand. I tend to have a line up of 10 - 20 books waiting for me to read at any one time on my Kindle - but sometimes you want something short and interesting. This is exactly what I was looking for - the episode format is well done and it feels like a tv-show.

As for the show itself - I loved it. The premise is similar to some shows I have seen, it sort of reminded me a bit of the 4400 and 'The Event' to start with. It definately has it's own voice though. The storyline and characters immediately hooked me - and I can't wait to read the rest of series one, then two, then three. I really want to know what is going on with this 'show'.

The only reason I have given this 4 stars is because of one character 'Luca'. He is 8 in the series - but honestly I struggled to read him. I have a 3 year old and a 5 year old - and they don't even talk the way he does. His voice just seemed 'off' to me, the way he thinks and describes things. I am not sure if I missed something - perhaps he has special needs? It just seemed either the authors didn't quite know what an 8 year old thought like - or I totally missed something?

Either way - I am sure it will make sense later, and it certainly has not put me off reading the rest of the series - it really is 5 stars in truth.

Keep up the good work - and I will check out your others series next.

In closing - I just want to say that Boricio Wolfe is one of the coolest characters ever. He cracks me up. I am not really certain what kind of a person that makes me - but I would love to hang out with him.. well till he killed me of course.

I purchased this first episode to get a taste of what these "indie" serial novels inspired by the "Green Mile" and earlier "Flash Gordon" and "Batman" serials of long ago days were like. I figured they'd be like most independent kindle works - some would be horrible but, with some patient digging, there would be true diamonds to be found. I've since learned this to in fact be very true, but please read this entire review before chalking the entire series up as "junk."

About a week after I bought this opening episode, the first season omnibus became available at a price that made the idea of purchasing the individual episodes cost prohibitive. I do support indie authors whenever I can and, being familiar with the royalty structuring at Amazon, knew they authors would get more than double the commission rate from my purchase of the omnibus than they would from the individual episode purchases. I went ahead and bought the complete 6-episode set. You will see my review for the omnibus edition of the first season if you head over and take a look.

To put it bluntly, episode 1 sucked so bad I had 3 hickies before I reached the last page. It is told in a very non-linear fashion. Each chapter is named after an individual person and by the time you read your way through far enough to actually learn more about a particular character you have been introduced to so many other people that the varied plot threads become almost impossible to keep track of. I'd almost recommend chapter-jumping and reading each person's section of the episode in its entirety. It will make it much easier to keep track. The episode is almost entirely devoted to exposition and introduction. When you complete the episode you will have 25 questions and points of confusion for every 1 answer or clear explanation.

Most of the people in the world have vanished overnight and the few people that remain are left wondering what's happened.

It's not an original idea, but the characters and events kept me interested enough to continue reading. The writing style isn't anything remarkable, but it works for this type of tale.

My only complaint about the book is the character of Luca Harding, a child with leukemia or something. I don't think I've ever encountered a more horrible viewpoint character. His segment of the story is told in very irritating child talk, laced with references to ouchies, itchy-burnies, the terrible scary, and a whole slew of similar disgustingly cute phrases. Every time the character showed up, I almost put the book down, never to be picked up again. I find the character that repellant. The writing style for his segments are way too dumbed down, and seem like they belong in a book for toddlers rather than adults. Just because a child character comes into a scene doesn't mean the book needs to devolve into virtual baby talk.

But I managed to get past the Luca character, and found the book interesting and entertaining enough that I'm now reading Episode 2. If you're looking for a fast-paced, entertaining read, I recommend this book.
