I received this book free as part of Goodreads First Reads.

I loved this book, it's an excellent addition to the zombie market. I thought the fact that his characters weren't overly likeable and were the oddballs and dregs of society gave the book a unique appeal (I didn't know who I wanted to die!)it added a small touch of realism, they really are who would survive the first day! The fascinating twist on the zombies kept me hooked all the way through as well as all the twists and turns in the p...more

Doll Parts is the sequel to Wayne Simmons novel 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' starting were the previous book left off. Filled with action, gore, horror and a brilliant story. This book starts off running and never slows down - giving the reader a thrill ride to remember.

I can honestly say that this is one of the most original horror novels I have read in many years. Simmons has created a monster that will stay in your head and gut for years after finishing the book. He has taken the 'zombie' and turned...more

I love zombies i really do. But for me, this book was just a meh. okay, i haven't read the one before, i don't think I'll bother. The style just wasnn't for me. It's too rushed, this happebns, then thism then that, there's no real characterisation. People say things, but they don't think anything, don't seem to really feel anything, so i don't care what happens to any of them. And seruously, zombies everywhere and she opens a tatoo parlour? and people want tattoos? just weird.

it was just too muc...more

Wayne Simmons, Doll Parts (Snowbooks, 2012)

Drop Dead Gorgeous remains, to date, my favorite Wayne Simmons novel, a fun, original take on the zombie that made honorable mention on my Best Reads of the Year list in 2010 and finished up pretty much crying out for a sequel. Well, that sequel is here, it's called Doll Parts, and damned if it isn't almost as good as the first one. It's a little more on the traditional-zombie-novel side of things than Drop Dead Gorgeous was—Simmons wasn't trying to pus...more

After reading Drop Dead Gorgeous by Wayne Simmons, I was keen to return to the bleak post-apocalyptic Belfast that the author had created and left wide-open for a return at the end of DDG in which, . And so, I eagerly set about reading its sequel, Doll Parts.

Doll Parts picks up almost immediately from where Drop Dead Gorgeous left off with our protagonists still fighting for survival against the savage onslaught of the undead. In keeping with the flow of the story from the end of DDG, Doll Parts...more

With this being sequel to the amazing Drop Dead Gorgeous DOLL PARTS had a lot to live up to how would Wayne Simmons continue the story of Star and her friends well the answer to that is simple. He continues it with talent. From the moment you open the first page until you close the last you are pulled along at break neck speed. One character that stood out about this book for me was Cole, this man is unusual and probably someone many of us would cross the street to avoid but he is presented with...more

Following on. from Drop Dead Gorgeous, the survivorsale their way to Belfast airport where others are gathering. But why does the nightly rain stop the 'dolls' and how do some survivors, who were apparently killed, seem to miraculously be healed? Great story telling and an interesting twist on a zombie tale.
Received a copy from the author to review through the First Reads giveaway. This book delivers punch after blood soaked punch to the gut. A fantastic sequel to Drop Dead Gorgeous. Jumps straight into the action, grabs you by the throat and never lets go! U love apocalypse novels especially zombie type ones and to have the end if the world occurring on our shores is brilliant! This book is definitely a keeper and a worthy shelfmate to my collection. If you enjoyed Survivors or any other classic 7...more

Each new book from Wayne is better than the last and when you consider his very first book was excellent, that's some achievement.
