9780062259660: Bird Box

Josh Malerman’s debut novel BIRD BOX is a terrifying, Hitchcockesque psychological horror that is sure to stay with you long after reading.

‘In its world of collapsing resources, endless terror and eye masks, Bird Box turns the old Hollywood cliché of facing down the demon inside out – then tears it into little pieces’ Daily Mail

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.

Review:

‘BIRD BOX turns the old Hollywood cliché of facing down the demon inside out – then tears it into little pieces’ Daily Mail

‘A book that demands to be read in a single sitting, and through the cracks between one's fingers'
Hugh Howey

‘A lean, spellbinding thriller that Stephen King fans will relish.’ Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)

‘You wonder whether that brush against your shoulder was some unspeakable horror or merely a falling leaf’ SFX

‘This completely compelling novel contains a thousand subtle touches but no mere flourishes – it is so well, so efficiently, so directly written I read it with real admiration’ Peter Straub

‘Nailbiting … will keep you gripped till the last chapter’ SciFiNow

'Unflagging suspense and ever-present dread’ Adam Nevill

'Uniquely disturbing, exceptionally compelling and beautifully written, I defy anyone not to read it in one sitting' Sarah Pinborough

‘An unsettling thriller, earns comparisons to Hitchcock's The Birds, as well as the finer efforts of Stephen King and cult sci-fi fantasist Jonathan Carroll.’
– Kirkus (STARRED REVIEW)

Book Description Ecco Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
