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, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat'blindfolded'with nothing to rely on but Malorie's 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 motley 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.… (més)

Bird Box by Josh Malerman is both a novel of supernatural and psychological terror and I couldn’t put it down. Now that I have finished the book I can see that there were a few giant plot holes, but during the reading I was totally able to ignore the flaws and concentrate on the fear.

This is an apocalyptic story about life as we know it ending on earth. Something is out there, something so alien that seeing it will cause total madness and drive the person to murder and suicide. Malorie, alone and pregnant, finds shelter with a group of other people, but because the book is written with a time line that jumps back and forth, we know that this sanctuary isn’t going to last. In the past time line we learn what happened to the group in the “safe house” and in the present time line we join a blindfolded Malorie and her children as they embark on a dangerous journey to find other people and a find a better life.

The author cleverly never allows the reader to see the creatures that cause such mayhem. They are out there, they come close at times, but the fact that they remain a total mystery adds to the horror. Much of the book rests squarely on the shoulders of the main character, Malorie. She was developed over the course of the book, starting out as rather timid and passive, but by the end of the book she was a tower of strength. Bird Box was an unsettling, horrific thriller that dished out plenty of thrills and chills which was exactly what I was looking for. ( )

Published 2014 but this book certainly fits the atmosphere of today's life with fear dictating everything we do. This was an interesting book and though rated horror, it was not too scary to read. The story of survival in a world that suddenly is dangerous if you go outside without your blindfold (Mask???). A young woman is pregnant and she must raise her two children in this dangerous and unhealthy environment. What does this do to people psychologically. What does it do to children raised in this world. While there are creatures, you never get to see them. The style is interweaving past and present. Debut novel. The story is set in Michigan. The author is also a singer, songwriter for the band High Strung. ( )

Bird Box was a really solid read but I think I slightly overhyped it in my head. First, I did something I rarely do and watched the movie first. I actually really enjoyed the movie and found it to be a fun reading experience comparing the differences between the two. But I expected this one to terrify me just from hearing from so many other horror readers that it is one of their favorites. Honestly, I did find the idea of not being able to see whatever was out there creepy but just not as terrifying as I hoped. Maybe it is because I watch the movie first or maybe I just had it overhyped in my head. That isn't to discount that I really enjoyed my reading experience. I was just left wanting it to be a bit more. More terrifying. I wanted to be truly creeped out in the best of ways and wasn't. I'm chalking it up to expectations. I definitely plan on reading more by this author and the premise of this book is so unique. I want to see what other twisted things he comes up with next. And I think I will read the sequel to this book at some point as well. But maybe I would just say to other readers to start here before you watch the movie. That's all.

Overall, I enjoyed this book even if it didn't quite terrify me like I had hoped that it would. Readers who want a horror based take on the end of the world should pick this book up for sure. I also want to say that if you aren't sure on if horror reads are for you, that this book wasn't too scary and is one that I think many readers could handle. Recommended!

Bottom Line: A book that I'm glad I finally pulled off of my own shelves after it sat on there for way too long!

Disclosure: I purchased this book myself. Honest thoughts are my own. ( )

I may have given this to the HAWL Library, as I currently cannot find it. I believe it was a CD audiobook.

This was strange and not something I enjoyed. Have also seen the film. Strange.

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, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: 20 miles downriver in a rowboat blindfolded with nothing to rely on but Malorie's 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 motley 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? ( )

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.
