Most people ignored the outrageous reports on the news. But they became too frequent, they became too real. And soon, they began happening down the street. Then the Internet died. The television and radio went silent. The phones stopped ringing. And we couldn't look outside anymore. Malorie raises the children the only way she can; indoors. The house is quiet. The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows. They are out there. She might let them in. The children sleep in the bedroom across the hall. Soon she will have to wake them. Soon she will have to blindfold them. Today they must leave the house. Today they will risk everything.

4.5 Bird Box: Or, the scariest book I've read in years.
Every fall I read all the scary books that have piled up over the year(s), many of which are recommendations from friends and co-workers.

5.0 Bird Box
Don’t look outside or let any light in, you never know who is out there and what they are capable of doing.

4.5 Bird Box - review
Malorie stands in the kitchen, thinking. - first sentence This book is soooo creepy and claustrophobic. I loved every minute of it. I can't imagine what it would be like to have to walk around outside blindfolded, let alone rowing down a river. The feeling of something unknown standing right next...

5.0 Great Use of Building Tension
There are a few flaws with "Bird Box". Some of the chapters drag here and there, and the going back and forth to the present, past, and recent past didn't always work. But the book as a whole really works. The book begins with a young woman being worried about what is outside the windows that she ...

4.0
This book unnerved the hell out of me! (How I wish there hadn't been this flaw thing...)One of the drawbacks of being I writer, is, I suspect, dissecting most books as I read, which interferes, at times, with the visceral impressions. But not so BIRD BOX. Malerman's structure is terrific, braiding t...
