Then came the zombie apocalypse.

These aren't the droids you're looking for.

More specifically, they aren't the zombies I'm looking for. But they may very well work for you. In the interests of remembering and for other future readers, I'll elaborate.

It starts off with a farm couple hiding in their cornfield (such a good place to hide) as their house has been overrun by zombies. They were apparently doing reasonably well until they welcomed a pair of travelers into their house. The farmwife, Paula, is seething. Just as they're s

The Death Doll is a good start to a zombie series with a unique twist.

The author has chosen to make this book more about people and less about zombies. There are plenty of zombies, no worries there. It is just that the plot and the characters are what make this book tick along. And the zombies are like a backdrop to all that's happening; they are influential in the sense that their presence sets the context for the story and plot points. This is the sort of writing that makes a story based aroun

Unfortunately, this one is just not working for me. The characters have been driving me crazy since the beginning of the book. I thought that if I listened a bit longer they might grow on me a bit but that hasn't been the case. I do like the work of the narrator. I think that I am just not the right reader for this book.

A copy of this book was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I went through a fad where I read zombie book after zombie book until I found not one more book that I thought I would enjoy. I thought I wiped out all the books in the genre. Well, that is until Mr. White approached me to read and review The Death Doll.

I have to be honest and didn't think I was going to like this book at first but wow...was I wrong. I instantly was hooked and

The Death Doll takes place two years after the zombie apocalypse went down. Now, bands of survivors struggle to survive the desolation.

One band is lead by Didi. In her previous life she was a porn star and looks the part. Statuesque and voluptuous, don’t let her looks deceive you. She’s a force to be reckoned with. Her mission. Provide for the community and keep everyone alive, at all costs. And the costs are high. The zombies aren’t the only thing they have to worry about. Other survivors want

Not another zombie apocalypse book, right? This one is worth your time! I am always glad to find books that do things differently and this book does it for me. Didi was very different and I think that made to books more fun to read. If you like zombie apocalypse books, you have to check this one out! * I received this book from the author---this is my honest review*

My original The Death Doll audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

The Death Doll is an exquisite story that brings new heights the world of flesh-eating zombies and the apocalypse!  Didi was a beautiful Adult Movie Entertainer and she made quite an impression!  She was very well known!  Now she is known as Death Doll and is feared by many because of her ability to coldly dispatch humans and zombies alike.  But her career as an Adult Porn Entertainer is not her only s

I have to admit the premise captured my eye right off but I was skeptical that it would be a generic zombie story. A former adult film star named Didi trying to save others during the apocalypse? I knew right then that it would be a social commentary on expectations and classism and that's only a part of what makes this book worth 5 stars in my opinion.
Besides the humble, snarky and badass heroine, the other characters are solid and enjoyable with good character growth. White introduces you to

If you are tired of the cliche zombie books, this is the book you want to pick up! No seriously.

Didi is amazing. She is kick ass and I really enjoyed reading about her. This book is fast paced and kept moving right along. It's not your typical zombie book. The writing style, the character development it's all really good. I like how things were thought out, you can tell that White actually thought about things and didn't just regurgitate what so many other zombie apocalypse books have done - co

I’m not a fan of the ‘Walking Dead,’ nor am I a fan of what could be classified as, the ‘Horror’ Genre. Imagine my surprise, when I found myself enjoying, “The Death Doll.” In fact, I couldn’t wait until I was able to pick up the book and continue reading. I laughed, I cried, and at times, I had to remind myself to breathe. If you are looking for a book that isn’t your normal “zombie,” read, I highly recommend reading, “The Death Doll.” You won’t be disappointed; in fact, you’ll be anxiously wai ...more

A group of survivors get help from a mystery woman called Didi during the zombie apocalypse but they soon discover they have bigger things to worry about. There was a diverse cast and some memorable characters it did take me a while to get to grips with the large cast, but it was a worthwhile read. I would recommend it.

This was an awesome story, packed with action and a fresh twist on the zombie genre. A kick-ass heroine who's technically dead, but dedicated to protecting the living? Genius. I loved how she clung to her remaining humanity for dear life, yet was perfectly honest with herself about the struggle her unique position presented her with. She wasn't a martyr to her circumstance, she owned it. If the story had been solely focused on her, I think it would've been a total home run. To me, she was the on ...more

I just read The Death Doll. I love the zombie genre. If you watched The Walking Dead but grew tired of Rick's shenanigans or the pricks at Terminus and wondered, "Why aren't there any groups actually making it work?" then you'll enjoy White's take on TEOTWAWKI the Zombie Edition. This story follows a group of survivors, the rules they have for a community (which makes a lot more sense than how most of these come together courtesy of the Hollywood Trope-omatic), and how they cope with survival wh ...more

Imagine my surprise when I started reading Brian White’s The Death Doll and discovered a zombie with a soul. Beyond that, I found a very well-thought-out and executed piece of apocalypse fiction. I was completely drawn into the much larger story White was creating, about faith and humanity and integrity. D.D. and Cody and their band of survivors have carved out a small piece of the world where humanity still exists. His characters are well rounded and complex and White does a nice job of leading ...more
