I couldn't put this book down, it is an entertaining read, well written and a good end to the series. Malerman concludes the main story and it is a satisfying wrap. He could later decide to make it a trilogy, but he doesn't have to. This one answers a few questions, leaves a few more, and tidies up the character story.,
Some people have written reviews about how it didn't measure up as a second Bird Box novel. If that's what you're expecting you'll likely have some misgivings. The title says it all, "Malorie". This is an excellent character story that addresses Malorie's development post-first book. It dives into her mind, her anxieties, discipline, and desire to play if safe and avoid any and all risk. It first and foremost about family, second about dealing with change, and thirdly about the possible fate of mankind in a creature-full world. The author himself pens an author's note about how he needed to explore and conclude Malorie's story, and this does it. It is both fast-paced and patient; it drives the plot line forward while taking the time to investigate Malorie's thoughts, trials, and state of mind. It almost asks, "is Malorie mad already by circumstance without having seen a creature?" It explores her sense of duty and her chains of responsibility of being a mother who has devoted the last decade to preserving the health and safety of her children, but at what cost?
At the time of purchase, the hardccover was $10 less than the paperback, and it's $20 well spent for great entertainment.
I. enjoy how he writes, very descriptive like you are there and experiencing everything that is happening. It is a nail bitter of a book, finished it very fast could not put it down. The only thing I did not like is he explains the original manuscript was to long so he had to cut some of it out and you can tell what parts he did, I wish he had of left them in, would of explained more. It is well worth the read if you liked the first one.
Terrible plot, feels like it was written by someone who has run out of ideas but was cashing in on the success of Birdbox. The story went nowhere and the characters had zero personality. Don’t waste your money.
Good book to end the Bird Box saga. This review has spoilers so if you want to know what happens in this book without reading, please continue. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. The book starts with chaos erupting at the School for the Blind. Malorie, Tom and Olympia (who are now both 6 years old) flee the school. It turns out that a woman at the school, who could see, was "pretending" to be blind and saw a creature inside of the school, went mad and started attacking people. Anyway, they flee and end up at an old summer camp. They stay here for the next 10 years. 10 years later, Tom and Olympia are both 16 years old. Tom is a curious, inventive rebellious kid and Olympia is a more subtle person. One day a guy from the census stops by but is told to leave. He leaves papers with information of a town called Indian River and a train that takes survivors there. Malorie finds out that her parent's names are on the census. She thought they were dead and decides to take the kids on a trek to the town. Once they make it on the train, it turns out that Gary ( bad guy from the first book) has been following Mal and the kids for some time now and is on the train too. Once Mal is separated from the kids, he catches her alone and throws her off the train. Olympia gets off the train to save her while Tom is on the train with Gary, who feeds him lies about how looking at the creatures is safe. As Olympia save Malorie, we find out that Olympia can SEE and has been able to SEE the whole time without going mad. She's kept this secret for over 10 years. Mal and Olympia make their way to the town just in time to see Tom using an idea he thought of (using two way mirror glass) to look at a creature. He looks and doesn't go mad. At the same time, Mal's father hears her voice and they are reunited. Tom has found a way to look at the creatures and all the survivors start going out to find more two way glass to use to make glasses so they can look at the creatures without going crazy. As the book ends, Malorie gets a crossbow and her kids help her to aim it at a sleeping Gary and she shoots him through the heart killing him instantly. As the book ends, Malorie is at the grave of her mother and she takes off her blindfold, puts on a pair of the special glasses, and looks at the world and a creature for the first time in 16 years. The end.
Bird Box is still one of my very favorite books of all time. I was literally on the edge of my seat and closing my eyes while reading it. I preordered Malorie the second that it was available knowing very well that I was bound to feel some disappointment. Unfortunately, this sequel had none of the atmospheric tension of the first. I was quite bored and stopped caring what happened.
Its like someone held a gun to the authors head and said,"wrap up this book in 5 hours or youll be sorry." The ending (no spoilers) was immensely dissapointing and made no sense to me. Everything was wrapped up neatly in a bow.
Eveeyone except oylmpia was immensly dislikable (which is legit in a book sometimes if that is the authors intent). There are a million stream of consciousness thoughts between any action, which was annoying. If you are fighting for your life and scared, do you think about your childhood ? Doubtful.
The book was the equivalent of GOT season 8. Bird box was a great premise and twist on traditional scary world ending monsters, but a great idea was destroyed by an author, who most likely didn't have a great way to continue to story, but did the best he could. I respect r.r Martin because he doesn't do crap like this eveb if people are clamoring for more.
Clearly with the sequel, this author lost steam. What had made “Birdbox” so good was the tension and suspense that ran throughout. This book tried to generate some, but it was never as good as the first book, never “can’t put this down” compelling. The end also felt rushed, tying up in a less than neat fashion (Spoiler alert)... really? Her reasonable parents were living in the town of crazies? With all the unburied dead dumped around it? And what about the leader who was supposed to be so reckless and crazy? That just fizzled out. And you want me to believe that in 16 years no one tried looking at the monsters through a one way mirror? And the whole existential explanation of why that worked was so lame, just the kind of silly explanation a teenager would come up with but that wouldn’t work in the real world. Considering he appears to have been the living ghost that haunted Malorie for over sixteen years, the death of Gary felt like an afterthought and was especially unsatisfying. If Netflix is going to make a sequel to “Bird box”, they won’t find much inspiration in this book.
