Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

272 pages
Publishing date: May 13, 2014
Publisher: Ecco
Author: Josh Malerman

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.

Brilliant, terrifying, unique, original, freaky, disturbing, and REAL! This is one of the best things I've read in decades!

I hate that I have to compare this book to King, but he's truly the only writer I can compare it to.
Yes, King is the best in the genre, but Malerman gives him a run for his money with this book.
Dare I say, it might be even better than anything the master of horror himself has written in years!

I literally had to remind myself to breathe many times while reading Bird Box because the suspense would get to me!

If you enjoy horror, psychological thrillers, and being mind-f**ked, you'll LOVE this book.

In case you haven't gotten the point, READ THIS BOOK. It will stay with you forever.

And I'm sorry this review is so short, but saying anything more would spoil it, and TRUST ME, you DON'T want to be spoiled on this one. It's SO GOOD.

Now go! Read Bird Box!
