Reviews

This post-apocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark passage is a thrill ride through a nightmare America. THE DEAD LANDS is gorgeous and haunting and full of heart, like some wonderful offspring of The Hobbit, The Road, and Stephen King's Dark Tower series.-- "James Frey, author of Bright Shiny Morning and Endgame"
THE DEAD LANDS is a bomb-blast of a novel, casting its tremors in every direction. Benjamin Percy's range grows broader with every book he writes. Here he takes a journey across a cataclysmic future American West, sending his band of seekers, scholars, assassins, and explorers through a landscape as dangerous and surreal as it must have seemed to the original Lewis and Clark. Their adventure, like the novel itself, travels far past the frontier, into the deepest and most thrilling of wildernesses.-- "Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Brief History of the Dead"
[A] visionary thriller ...With its fluid integration of reflections on American values and freedoms into a near-future scenario whose dramas resonate with the contemporary zeitgeist, this novel is a reminder that the best speculative fiction speaks to the concerns and issues of its time.-- "Publisher's Weekly, starred review"
Percy offers a tip of the hat to American explorers Lewis and Clark in this harrowing post apocalyptic thriller. . . . Percy uses his gift for literary horror, as seen in Red Moon, to create a compelling and at times disturbing story that will leave readers wanting more.-- "Booklist (starred review)"
A compelling post apocalyptic adventure populated by fascinating characters [and] a clever riff on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Fans of Cormac McCarthy's The Road, Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker, and Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven will embrace the literary vision of humanity's first steps back up the ladder of civilization after near-extinction disasters.-- "Library Journal (starred review)"
THE DEAD LANDS is an ingenious thriller, relentlessly driven by Benjamin Percy's powerful writing.-- "Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins"
The Dead Lands is a gripping and inventive adventure about the resilience of the human species. Benjamin Percy may conjure a future that's brutal and dark, but it's not without bravery, compassion, and love. He is a truly gifted storyteller.-- "Edan Lepucki, author of California "

The Dead Lands is an ingenious thriller, relentlessly driven by Benjamin Percy's powerful writing.

-- "Jess Walter, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins"
Benjamin Percy's THE DEAD LANDS is a case of wonderful writing and compulsive reading. You will not come across a finer work of sustained imagination this year. Good God, what a tale. Don't miss it.-- " Stephen King "

This postapocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark passage is a thrill ride through a nightmare America. The Dead Lands is gorgeous and haunting and full of heart, like some wonderful offspring of The Hobbit, The Road, and Stephen King's Dark Tower series.

-- "James Frey, New York Times bestselling author of Bright Shiny Morning"

The Dead Lands is a bomb-blast of a novel...Benjamin Percy's range grows broader with every book he writes.

-- "Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Brief History of the Dead"

A postapocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark expedition. And it is brilliant, rich in character and theme, wonderfully written. It's so good, in fact, that it must have been a daunting challenge for narrator Graham to bring this epic-sized story to life. Thankfully, he's up to the job...A thoughtful, textured performance.
