Publisher's Summary

A journey through Dante's Inferno with a shambling twist.

In one day, the world succumbed to a pestilence that decimated the living. In its place rose a new species: vicious, gruesome, wandering zombies with an insatiable hunger for the living. There is no government. No shelter. No hope.

Still in her twenties, Cash has watched her friends die, only to walk again. An office worker with few survival skills, she joins up with Clutch, a grizzled Army veteran with PTSD. Together, they flee the city and struggle through the nine circles of hell, with nothing but Clutch's military experience and Cash's determination to live. As they fight to survive in the zombie inferno, they quickly discover that nowhere is safe from the undead...or the living.

This is the beginning after the end.

100 Days in Deadland is a journey through the first poem in Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, the classic tale on the horrors of hell...zombie apocalypse style!

    "pretty good zombie fix"
    Any additional comments?


    100 days in deadland has a quick start. in the first 5 minutes, the main character, mia, is in the thick of a zombie apocylapse. as she attempts to flee des moines, iowa, she encounters clutch, a truck driver, who just happens to be a survivalist. although this seems cliche, the story is pretty good. it reminded me of no easy hope: surviving the dead. for those who haven't read/listened to it, there's a good mentor-apprentice relationship and storyline.

    the zombies are the romero style shamblers, and there's a good amount of zombie action as mia(cash) and clutch scavenge for supplies. however, zombbies aren't their only concern. mia(cash) and clutch must also contend with a local militia and what's left of the military. so, the second half of the book is kind of predictable.

    100 days in deadland is told in the first person by mia(cash). the narrator's voice is easy to listen to. her inflection matches what's happening in the story.

    100 days in deadland has all the storylines you'd expect in a zombie apocylapse story. while this is good, it is also bad. well, at least for me. i've listened to a bunch of zombie stories, and i'm always on the lookout for a story to surprise me. nothing in this story surprised me or added to the zombie genre. i'm not saying it's a bad, but it's just a story i've heard before.

    as far as the dante's inferno connection is concerned, the author broke the story up so that each circle of hell matched what was happening in the story. i did not buy this story b/c of that, but i loosely paid attention to the connection between the two. after the end of the story, the author provides an exposition of how each section of the story represents a different circle of hell. i only listened to part of it before i moved on to the next book.

    so if you're pretty new to the zombie genre, then this is a pretty good story to start off with. it's a full story in one book and not a series, where the story sometimes comes to an abrupt end. if you're a gray hair like me and need a good, predictable zombie fix, then give it listen.

    Story
    "Well done. Very gritty and real."

    The first thing I will, say is that this book was very entertaining. Additionally, it presents a solid female lead which is always a refreshing and welcome addition to the zombie apocalypse genre. Cash grows throughout the story and changes due to her ongoing experiences. This book does have the sub-tag about being tied to Dante's "Inferno". While nods to the classic piece can be found, I do think it best to simply take this tale as a good zombie story with very good character development. Perhaps there would be less flak about the Dante tie in if it had been mentioned as an inspiration in the preface.

    I do take issue with some of the criticism saying this book had no characters worth rooting for, and that even the leads were horrible people. I saw this as a fantastic example of how real people might act in such extreme situations. If you disagree, then you have not paid attention to global situations where law and order have been supplanted. The author does a fabulous job of creating realism.

    As for the narrator of the audio version, I found her to be a perfect fit and enjoyed her work. The sound was clean and easy to understand. Nice pace and excellent diction. She added emotion without trying to go over the top.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series! I was sad when book 3 was done and at the end of the story. You feel like the characters are family! Very entertaining and believable - some different twists and turns with some anxiety causing reactions for sure!

    "Excellent story with non-stop action!"

    The story really drew me in. I felt like I had become a character, an observer, in the story along side Jase, Clutch, and Cash.

    Story
    "Standard Zombies with tons of action"

    A really enjoyable read that takes you through a modern day version of Dante’s Inferno (although I think it’s more of an homage than a parallel). The action comes non-stop with zombie and marauder attacks. Because of all the action the characters are pretty thin and we don’t get to see much of their back story or thoughts and feelings. Overall it’s well written and well thought out zombie story which thoroughly entertained me!

    Ms. Jackson does a fine job with the characters but is just a tad too slow for my liking. Not so slow I had to turn it up to 1.5X but close.

    "Disappointing narration"

    I feel like this could have been a much better listen, if the narration had been up to task. Not sure how this narrator made the cut. Narrating a story about an outbreak of a zombie virus and the fall of civilization should not be done in the same vein as narrating a story about a family road trip or a Sunday picnic, and I feel the narrator could have easily been discussing one of those topics. There was simply not enough emotion in the delivery and that took away from the story in a major way for me.

    "Excellent zombie adventure"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 100 Days in Deadland to be better than the print version?

    I read the print version a couple of years ago and bought the audio book because I enjoyed it. I was not disappointed, excellent audio production


    Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, but I will now

    Story
    "This is no Dante's Inferno"

    Just because you section up your book with the names of the rings of hell doesn't make your book anything like the classic.

    This is your everyday zombie book with the same old characters you would find in every other tired old zombie book. You have the tough chick, the grizzled army vet, a spunky kid...you even have the group of bad guys collecting women and going on about the world changing....blah, blah, blah.

    The first person writing style is a tired tool of the amateur writing which I've never liked. It means the author doesn't have to use any imagination and develop any other characters. The dialog of this book is just brutal which lead be to shutting the book off halfway through at the unrealistic scene at the militia compound.

    I know the pickings are slim in this genre, but if you're looking for a fun B-movie zombie book I would skip this one for sure.

    Try the Dead Series
