Descrição do produto
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. 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. 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.

Bird Box is a dystopian novel set in an apocalyptical setting where people see creatures and go mad, ultimately dying and sometimes taking others with them. The story of the protagonist is set in two time points - when everything goes wrong and she needs to seek refuge, and the current time, where she is having to find a new place with two children.
It is spooky and creepy. At one point I was reading it in the dark and something fell off my bed, and I have to confess to absolutely jumping out of my skin. I found the book hard to put down because I felt like it was all building up to something.
And then - nothing. A total cliche of an ending. You never get to find out what was out there. It's just some creature. Everyone has to live without looking outside and that's that, end of story. They find a new refuge and carry on.
It did grip me but totally fell flat. I'll not be rushing to watch the movie adaptation unfortunately.
Come to this book with the right expectations. It's going to be a quick read. There are going to be moments that niggle with inconsistency. The writing won't set you alight with poetic brilliance. But I can almost guarantee you this: you will be creeped out. You might even be scared. Like me, you might have nightmares, and you might jump at tiny out-of-place sounds. Bask in these rare qualities and enjoy them.
People scared, people hearing sounds, people scared, people hearing sounds, nothing happening. About half way though I got so bored reading the same thing over and over again that I skipped to the last chapter. I can tell you that it really wasn’t worth reading - still nothing happened. I’ve given it two stars for the first part of the book which was interesting, before it become boring and repetitive. I’m sure this book could have been condensed to a quarter of what it is.
From the blurb alone I may not have ever picked this up, but the reviews from some of my favourite reviewers convinced me to give this a go. And I adored it.
This had me completely gripped throughout. When I wasn’t reading it, I kept thinking about it. This completely got in my head, as a horror/thriller should. It even made me rather paranoid at night.
Josh Malerman’s writing was fantastic and I can’t wait to read more from him.
