Bird Box

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Now a Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar and John Malkovich!

Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.

Something is out there . . .

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?

Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman’s breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 10, 2014 – The sight of something unknown drives people to savagely attack others before taking their own lives in Malerman's terrific debut, a sophisticated update of John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids. First reported in Russia, the mysterious plague spreads to the U.S., where it takes a devastating toll on humanity. The only defense against the madness is to avoid looking at the outside world. Four years after the initial outbreak, Malorie lives with her four-year-old twins, known as Boy and Girl, in a suburban Detroit house with sealed windows that has been prepared for long-term survival, stocked with food and other necessary supplies. When Malorie and her children go outside for brief periods, they do so blindfolded. Now Malorie has decided that the time is right for them to flee their refuge. The author uses understatement and allusion to create a lean, spellbinding thriller that Stephen King fans will relish.

Absolute page turner. I was on the edge of my bed reading this. Amazing story with a thrill that kept a knot in my stomach and makes me want to cover all of my windows. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Excited for the Netflix movie.

I have only written one other book review in my life and it did not hold a candle to this book. I read this in one day because I could not put it down it is 333 in the morning and I am writing this review right after finishing this book. My stomach has been in knots and my body has been tense for hours. I would have to rate this book in my top 10 books of all times, and I’m 74 tomorrow so I’ve read a few books in my life. Dean Koontz is my favorite author although I do like Stephen King and a few others which all happen to be authors of horror books. Now I have another favorite author Josh Malerman! I will be Reading all of your books from now on so get busy I love to read. And thank you for having such a wonderful talent it is greatly appreciated
