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!
