Fiction. Horror. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:

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 f… (mais)

Author Josh Malerman seizes on the natural human fears of the unknown and the dark to create a page-turner that will leave you looking over your shoulder and a wee bit jumpy.

*Something* is out there -- and it's everywhere. And when people see it, they go batsh*t (birdsh*t?) crazy. Not just regular crazy, but suicidal, homicidal Florida crazy. The only defense is stay inside with windows covered and boarded up -- and to navigate the world blindfolded when you must wander outside.

In this new world all regular activity soon ceases -- no radio or TV broadcasts, no running water, no essential services, etc.

Malerman takes us into the minds of his characters as they try to live this new existence. We see them try to form alliances and decide who they can trust -- and who is working against them. We also see them try to survive against the *thing* that's out there. Some of these scenes had me completely on edge.

The book was certainly creepy, but even a scaredy cat like me was able to read it without nightmares, so it isn't too terrifying. While some readers have liked the ending, this is one of the areas where the book lost points with me as I found it to be a bit anti-climactic. ( )

Bird Box is a post apocalyptic novel about people becoming violent to themselves and others after seeing something. The book follows Malorie as she and others try to survive. It has a dual timeline showing the start of the crisis and almost five years later.

It took me a while to get into the story, but I ended up really liking it. It has some moments that were pretty creepy, enough so that I quit reading this at night and only read it during the day. I'm a coward at night though, so your mileage may vary. ( )

At its best, creepy, disturbing, and makes you tense up like a snake's about to bite you. It makes you speculate and gives you enough information to be interesting but not enough to make it stop being interesting. Some of it I found unnecessarily heavy-handed (I find body horror to be gross, but not frightening). Still, better than 99% of the horror out there. ( )

So so creepy.

This isn’t my typical kind of book and because I read mostly before bed it took me forever to get through it because I didn’t want to read this particular book right before sleeping. ( )

I guess I found it compelling enough to read but really I'm still not sure what all the fuss is about.

Edit: I watched the movie. The movie was so much better honestly wondering why I read this at all. ( )

Malerman overreaches a bit in his debut, which could use as much attention to the cast as to the mood, but the mood is chillingly effective.

Sometimes I wish I were an architect, so that I could dedicate a building to a person; a superstructure that broke the clouds and continued up into the abyss. And if Bird Box were made of bricks instead of letters, I'd host a ceremony, invite every shadowy memory I have, and cut the ribbon with an axe, letting everyone see for the first time that building's name. It'd be called the Debbie. Mom, Bird Box is for you.
