Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman
Language: English
Publisher: Harper Voyager
Pages: 291
My overall rating for this book: 5

The story and triggers warnings
We follow Malorie who in the middle of a catastrophe tries to raise her children and keep her and them safe. The outside world has become a unsafe place. And the only way to go outside is to blindfold yourself.
Something is roaming out there, and if you catch a glimpse of it you will go crazy. To keep safe, people have huddled together in houses with windows covered with blankets. How do you preform the most basic things, like fetching water from the well if you can’t see it?

What did I like/dislike about the book?
I actually enjoyed most parts of this book. It was a brilliant work of fiction that makes you think “How would I survive this?”. It’s a story about a catastrophe and about how people come together to survive. It’s a story about true friendships and surviving against all odds.
