Editorial Reviews



"Stephen King Meets Lost"

"I'm hooked!"

"It is hard to get a confession from a Viet Nam Marine Grunt, but I now confess; Sean and Dave, you have me hooked!"

"If you love the mile a minute action and adventure of Doctor Who, the suspense and shock of The Walking Dead, the 'oh Hell' and 'you've got to be kidding' of Lost, AND the 'What the Hell was that?!' of Fringe, then this is the book for you!!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Read This If You Like to Have Your Jaw on the Floor October 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
If you want all the answers, this is not the book for you. The endings of each episode (there are six in the book) will leave your jaw on the floor and the ending of the entire book will leave you slamming your fist on the table because you'll have to wait for the next season, just like on TV.

Yesterday's Gone is filled with some potentially challenging concepts, though it's still a bit too early to tell. So far, the mystery is great and the larger themes are dealt with in a way that keeps you interested and always turning the pages. It's a remarkable balance of breezy reading and deep development.

Like the show "Lost," I think it will be a while before we really know if Yesterday's Gone will live up to its potential. I have a feeling the authors are making it up as they go along, just like the writers did with that show. But for now, I've not really read anything else like this on Kindle, and for that it's definitely worth the five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun... February 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has a kind of "Lost" (the TV series) feel to it. I was a little skeptical at first but have truly come to enjoy this read. I actually read it last night while having a very large tattoo ink'd to my ribcage. If it could hold my attention through that, it's worth the buy. The author goes back and forth between different characters. I often find that this can take away from the author's ability to inspire character depth (there are more than just a couple main characters). Mr. Platt and Wright have managed to pull it off however.

The 1 star reviewer has determined that all of the five star reviews on here are phony accounts, it should be fairly easy to determine that mine is not and I have not a clue who, where or what these authors are about. I will continue to read this series (probably not 1 episode at a time, but when they come out as this one did 6 episodes in one). I reccommend checking out the sample if you have a kindle, it will give you just a taste of how this story is written. I did just that and then I purchased the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great New Voice in Post Apocalyptic Lit (x2) December 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't written an Amazon book review in over six years. So why now? Well, first and foremost, this book is awesome. But it's not really a book. But it is. But it's not. But it is! She's my sister! My daughter! My sister! My daughter! Wait what?

The characters here are always three dimensional (and sometimes they evolve into four). They may not all survive, but you will feel something pretty amazing for each one while you're with them. It won't always be pretty, but it will always be entertaining. Borichio, for one, is a supreme gasser. Watch out for that guy!

I know exactly where these guys (authors), are coming from. I've written as a duo myself and though it's not always easy, when you click with another writer, there's really no stopping your story. And that's what you have here with Yesterday's Gone. A symbiotic simpatico clicking <Click Click Click> BEWARE THAT SOUND!! But I digress... Platt & Wright are coming from a place of unapologetic, pop-candy literature of the 80s and contemporary, mind-blowing television. They prove that genre crossovers are not only possible, but necessary in today's multi-faceted, multitasking, neurotic, gimme gimme society.

I love the concept of episodes within a series as it translates to lit. Though it's certainly not an original idea (see Dickens, etc), these guys have filed it down to a precise science that will bring you to the edge of your seat and push you off. I'm actually kinda glad I found this series now, after it's been completed, so I don't have to wait for the next installments like a 2011 shlub.

Can Episodes 7-18 be just as good as 1-6? Ahhhhhh! I hope so!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday's Gone: The Tetris of Serialized Fiction October 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yesterday's Gone is perfect for today's attention-deficit but entertainment demanding reader. At first, I didn't think I would like the serialized format, so I bought the whole kit and kaboodle. As the adventure unrolled on my Kindle, I actually felt as if I were watching a well-scripted television drama. It was clear that Sean Platt and David Wright intended to remain true to the types of shows they love to watch. Indeed, my own reading style fit this format. I read a chapter or two at a time, always eager to get to the next piece of this fascinating puzzle.

And what a puzzle! Yesterday's Gone starts with a weird apocalyptic event, seemingly disparate characters and some disturbing signs that all was not right with the world. But there's no rushing the Apocalypse: the book treated me to a voyeuristic journey into unbridled lawlessness, both mundane and outrageous. Looting, house-breaking, car-stealing, plundering and pillaging. And that's just the first Episode.

The collaborative skill of the authors - part of the mystique of this series - is presented seamlessly. Yesterday's Gone reads like the work of a single, gifted weaver. The cliff-hangers all snap into place at just the right moments. Perfect for taking a reluctant break.

I can't wait for season two...

5.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent read, highly recommended May 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My only complaint about Yesterday's Gone, episodes 1-6 is that it pretty much took over my life for the last week. I can't say that I didn't put it down - I did after all manage to go to work, play with my kid, live my life...but I sure didn't want to put it down.

It's extremely well written, engaging, witty and terrifying in turn, and has a plot that will keep you guessing. Surprises are around every corner. Much is revealed in this first season, but the plot has thickened enough so that only season 2 (and presumably, season 3) will relieve the itch to know more. I'll be downloading season 2 almost immediately so I guess my spare time will continue to be dominated by Messrs. Platt and Wright.

I took a look at the lowest-ranked (2 stars) review for this book, and saw that the reviewer is suggesting that 5-star reviewers, such as myself, must be friends of the authors. I assure you I'm not. Haven't met them, wouldn't know them if I tripped over them. I'm just someone who enjoys good writing and imaginative speculative fiction. That's exactly what I found in Yesterday's Gone. I unashamedly tout it as one of the best things I've read this year, and unreseverdly recommend it to anyone.
