    One thought on “Bird Box”

    1. this is an incredibly original horror/psychological suspense novel that reminds us that with all great horror, the unseen is so much more terrifying than the seen. this is why japanese horror movies are so effective. they don't rely on graphic special effects to build the suspense, and the way they manipulate shadows, sounds, and background space creates an unparalleled atmosphere that leaves a more lasting, haunting impression than "crazy chainsaw-toting psychopath" splatter films. which, don't [...]

    2. ”Creatures…infinity…our minds have ceilings, Malorieese thingsey are beyond it…higher than it…out of reach…out of--BUT HERE”Whatever you do DON’T OPEN YOUR EYES!!Malorie has just confirmed she is pregnant the very day that people begin killing themselves. News travels so fast now. Something can happen in Cairo. Someone can film it, load it to the internet, and within minutes of the event occurring someone in Des Moines is watching what happened. News, mostly tragic news, from aro [...]

    3. (rating bumped from 4 up to 5 stars after thinking about it more)A few days ago when I finished this book, initially I was pissed off and disappointed at the ending. It leaves a lot of questions unanswered, but upon a few days' reflection I've realized that it was the only realistic way this could end. SO, if you are wary of reading this because you don't want an open ending, don't be! Malerman made the right choice in leaving some things unknown, because ultimately it works best for this type o [...]

    4. Holy crap on a cracker, y'all! This book! Creepsville!! Don't freaking go outside without your blindfold or you might open your eyes. I must say, if I had to choose what apocalypse I would be in, I would pick the zombies because at least you can go outside and see them and kill them. Unless you're blind and then your up sh•t creek. One day they start getting reports of people seeing things and then turning violent and killing people and themselves. And of course you start thinking, wth? Malori [...]

    5. Close your eyes and imagine the basso sound of voiceover icon Don LaFontaine intoning, “In a world gone mad…” and that is pretty much where Bird Box begins. Open your eyes and go mad. Kill others, yourself. Can you keep from peeking? For how long? In Josh Malerman’s post-apocalyptic, eye-opening scare-scape, something happened. An invasion? Some natural phenomenon? No one is really certain. But what has become clear is that anyone who steps outside with their eyes open goes insane, not j [...]

    7. Wow! Just wow! Bird Box was amazing! This definitely lived up to the hype that everyone spoke of. I highly recommend this book if you want your mind to be twisted and turned in ways you can't imagine. Creepy, terrifying, horrid, and downright scary! Loved it! Would make an interesting movie

    8. Hold on tightis trip is going to blow your mind!Horror is a genre that I normally avoid completely, but with the rave reviews from my GR friends for this book I felt I needed to step out and give it a try. And it was so incredibly good! Oh my God!Malorie and her sister Shannon move in together in Detroit. Life immediately throws her a curve ball. Malorie learns she's pregnant from a brief encounter with someone she didn't know well, and thinks this is as bad as it gets. Not even close! Something [...]

    9. 2.5 stars.I would not last in the apocalyptic world set out in this book. My dad used to say I had nose problems because let's face it. I have to know what's going on. Walking around for 4 years with a blindfold on every time I went outside? Yeah, dead in less than 60 seconds.Not this kind of blindfolded either.This book doesn't give the reader many answers. I do know what the author was going for. The whole scary in the mind of the reader thing. The thing is I need some answers. I get all antsy [...]

    10. Where the hell do I start with reviewing this book? Unlike nothing I've read in a long time this one is a stand out read like no other for me this year. I had wanted to read this for ages and so glad I finally did.Emotions stirred reading this book I think covered them all, I noted how on edge I was constantly reading this novel. From early pages to the last I was fixated, addicted and full of tension, bordering on fear at times.Something is out there, something terrifying that must not be seen. [...]

    11. 4.5 starsWhoah. This is some really good shit. Color me very impressed. I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked this one up, but it totally delivered on tension and suspense, a palpable dread, and a suffocating sense of doom. Just as a launching off point I'm going to throw two pop culture references at you that I couldn't stop thinking about while reading this book. The first is the music video "Just" by Radiohead. Remember that's the one where there's this guy who just lies down in the [...]

    12. fantastic book. there are a bunch of excellent 4-star reviews out there and I'm not sure I have a whole lot more to addnopsis: it's the end of the world as we know it. creatures from somewhere roam the streets. to gaze upon them means certain doom, or at least a murderous, suicidal insanity. the world soon realizes that something very wrong is happening everywhere. four years later, our heroine and two children must take a blindfolded river journey to an uncertain destination. sound is a key par [...]

    13. 1 DEC 2016: Only $1.99 on Kindle! Totally worth it (to me at least.)You can't ever look at it or you will go violently insane. That is basically the premise of this book. What is it? What are they? Why are they here? What is it that people see that makes them go crazy? You'll have to read it to find out.I LOVED THIS BOOK. I can't believe it was a first novel either. This guy knocked it out of the park, if you ask me. So creepy. A perfect blend of suspense and horror mixed in with an end-of-the-w [...]

    14. Bird Box offers a well-known premise - the world as we know it suddenly coming to an end, and the few who survived trying to cope with the new reality - but with an interesting twist (certainly a desirable addition to the formula which, much as I enjoy it, is now beginning to resemble a really dead horse). This is both a good, and a bad thing - and the book is also both these things, as it began well but ended up being disappointing.The hook of Bird Box is, like in much post-apocalyptic fiction, [...]

    15. After having this book so highly recommended to me by one of my friends on , I decided to delve in to see what Josh Malerman might have to say in this twisted novel. Early into the story, Malerman introduces readers to his protagonist, Malorie, a young and somewhat fearful woman. Scrubbing the walls and carpets of blood stains, Malorie appears highly agitated and yet focussed on her task at hand, which serves only to up the ante of what is yet to come. The reader soon learns that something sinis [...]

    16. Creepy, tense, scary! (The below lines are kind of spoilerish . . . but nothing the description on doesn't already mention)Unable to use your eyes for fear of madness . . .Unseen and unknown terrors roaming outside . . .Trapped inside with the windows covered . . .The sanity of your companions in question . . .Running out of supplies . . .Seeking salvation, but not sure where to find it or who to trust . . .Pregnant . . .This was intense and a must read for horror and thriller fans everywhere.

    17. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/3.5 StarsEDIT: 4.5 STARS AND ROUNDED UP BECAUSE IDGAFFor maybe the second time in the history of , I'm changing my initial rating of a book and floating my review. I don't really give a shit if you don't like this book - I liked it enough for everyone. I liked it so much that I constantly think about it whenever I hear a creepy noise in the dark or think how terrifying it would be if I had to face potential superbadawfuls blindfolded while walking to the [...]

    18. 4.5 starsA big thank you to my wonderful book buddy Jan for picking this book for me to read. I had initially marked it, but when I started seeing people place it on their “horror shelves” I backed off. I do not do horror, no way. When I was told this was more “creepy” than “horror(ible)”, I thought I would go ahead and give it a shot. Boy, was I surprised at how much I got into this novel!Josh Malerman is an author to watch for sure. I was immediately drawn into this strange tale an [...]

    19. Sister review with Norma! So freaking out creepy, GOOD! Those are not words I thought I would ever put together. What were those things?Our full sister review can be found on our sister blogtwogirlslostinacouleereadi

    20. 4.5 starsWow!This book is incredibly good and quite creepy.The story follows Malorie who is stuck in a post-apocalyptic world where people are killing themselves, in any manner possible and no one knows why.The premise of the book is completely enrapturing and leaves you anxious for the next chapter.I absolutely loved the post-apocalyptic element in this book as it was done so well and was unique.For the most part, the plot switches between the past and present to reveal the the direction of the [...]

    21. Amazing, Fantastic, Eerie, Atmospheric, chilling, engrossing.WOW!Eerie, Atmospheric, chilling, engrossing. These are the words I would use to describe this book. For those who enjoy derie and dark books, this book will be a perfect fit. This is a horror type book but without the gore. There are some plot holes but you forgive the first time Author that for his originality and heart he put into this book. It's getting a lot of buzz right now and it deserves it. It's not for everyone but most peop [...]

    22. Well, this had a different take after an apocalyptic event.The craziness starts in Russia, where people are going on a murderous rampage; then killing themselves. Malorie who lives in Michigan, with her sister Shannon - is in the bathroom examining herself in the mirror: as she believes she may be pregnant after having a one-night-stand. Shannon is watching the news reports of similar incidents to those in Russia and advises Malorie that there are people going insane in Alaska and Canada, as wel [...]

    23. WOooooOow. This book was thrilling. It was an addictive, (somewhat) scary, fascinating read. I feel like this would be a great book to recommend to people who don't read a lot because it's not too long, it's easy to read, and it is unputdownable. I don't want to say anything else about this book because it's so much more fun going into it with no previous knowledge. Also I imagine this would make a great audiobook too. So if you like creepy thrillers definitely check this one out!

    24. I should have read this book blindfolded. People are killing themselves and no one knows why. They know whatever is out there, if they should see it, it will cause them to go mad and end in their death. They are being hunted but without sight, they can survive. A quick and easy read but one that will leave you feeling tense and on edge. I don't typically run to these kind of reads and in this case, I was trying to run from it. Not a lot of depth but who needs it when you have a lot of fear. Go a [...]

    25. Holy Shit! Why did I wait so long to read this thriller?Wonderfully creepy from start to finish, Bird Box made me feel the eerie presence of the mysterious creatures behind my blindfold and hear the sounds of madness! It takes an awful lot to creep me out, but Bird Box succeeded with the suspenseful intenseness of the unknown all the way to the apropos ending.Be very careful who you trust, but do not miss out on this one! And, oh(view spoiler)[Where the hell is Gary? (hide spoiler)]

    26. “It's better to face madness with a plan than to sit still and let it take you in pieces.” Finally I read this - been hearing about it for years. One of those books I wanted to read but can't procrastinating on starting for some odd mystery that will never be solved - much like the creatures in this book. Tense and gripping with an isolated, claustrophobic atmosphere, Bird Box was hard to put down once the somber, surreal tone sucked me in. I didn't get into the beginning right away - it was [...]

    27. 5 big, bold, humongous stars!!!I loved every single thing about this book--every creepy, tense, suspenseful, action filled page!!!I'm not quite sure how to even label this book as there are so many dimensions to it. While it is definitely suspenseful, there is such a haunting quality to the writing that it's not like any thriller I've ever read. While there is death and madness, it's not at a level that I would consider a true horror either. The plot is definitely center stage here, along with t [...]

    28. A genuinely tense, terrifying read. When I wasn't whipping through pages I had to put the book down to take a break from the suspense. This is great, gripping story that emphasizes creepiness and primal fear over violence while still proving itself to fans of survival and psychological horror. I'd recommend it to anyone willing to tease their fear of the unknown.

    29. Before writing this review I had planned to give this book a 3.5 rating. See my actual rating? Oops.Where I'm from we don't celebrate Halloween. What can I say, we're weird like that. Well we do have some kind of celebration. Yes, we do. We put pots of depressing-looking chrysanthemum on tombstones. Yay! Think of it as Día de los Muertos without the cool stuff. So instead of getting this:We get something like this:Party on. I'm telling you, we know how to have a good time. Anyway, the point is [...]

    30. Wow, what a book! Seriously scary and creepy. You just have to keep reading to know how it ends. At least, I had to. Who can think of such a story Suspension and creepiness from start to end, intriguing story. What's going on? What happened leading up to this situation? Will she and kids survive? . Wew. one h*ll of a story. I say, this is also a seriously impressive case of woman power! Great, great, entertaining book. AB: Looking back at my books in 2015, upgraded this one to five stars. Seriou [...]
