My Rating: 5/5

My Summary:  Something is out there… What it is, no one knows.  All anyone knows is whenever it is seen the person goes mad and ends their life.  Malorie has been living in an abandoned house with a group of strangers for the past five years, since the horror began.  At last she finds she has no choice but to leave her safe haven.  With two 5-year old children in tow, Malorie makes her way down the river, blindfolded to avoid seeing whatever it is that lurks outside.

My Thoughts:  Bird Box, told from alternating perspectives of the past and present through Malorie’s eyes, was instantly engrossing.  The mystery of what lies outside was intriguing and extremely unique.  I found myself feeling the pain, fear, and suspense that engulfed these well-crafted characters.  This was a difficult book to put down; I devoured it in one sitting.  I would certainly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction lore.
