It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that I literally could not put down. Bird Box has been that book for me, it gripped me from the get go and one Sunday and it all concluded, in fact I’m kinda sad it’s over, someone please tell me there will be a follow up?!
Well if you haven’t heard about it on the grape vine heres a little about the book,
With the sinister domestic setting of GONE GIRL, the creeping chill of Hitchcock and the visceral horror and assured narrative Stephen King, BIRD BOX is an intense, terrifying debut that will change the face of genre fiction.
“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 and her children are trapped indoors, hiding from an unnamed awful presence outside, wearing blindfolds in order to stay alive. If they remove them, a violent suicide will follow. Malorie has two choices – to stay in hiding, isolated, with her children, or to make the terrifying journey down river in a desperate, almost hopeless search for fellow survivors.
A claustrophobic and psychological tour-de-force set in contemporary America from debut author Josh Malerman. Michigan based Josh Malerman is frontman for the Detroit foursome The High Strung. His debut novel BIRD BOX will be published in the UK and US in April 2014.
It’s high up on my list of must reads for all you book worms out there, it isn’t a huge bulky book so at 232 pages it’s perfect for trips or holiday reads or like me, submerge yourself into the apocalyptic world and loose the day to the dark, you won’t regret it.
