Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Josh Malerman’s debut novel Bird Box is a terrifying, Hitchcockesque psychological horror that is sure to stay with you long after reading.

Most people ignored the outrageous reports on the news.  But they became too frequent, they became too real.  And soon, they began happening down the street.  Then the Internet died.  The television and radio went silent.  The phones stopped ringing.  And we couldn’t look outside anymore.

Malorie raises the children the only way she can: indoors.

The house is quiet.  The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows.

They are out there.  She can’t let them in.

The children sleep in the bedroom across the hall.

Soon she will have to wake them.  Soon she will have to blindfold them.

Today they must leave the house.  Today they will risk everything.

Peer & Press Reviews

This completely compelling novel contains a thousand subtle touches but no mere flourishes – it is so well, so efficiently, so directly written I read it with real admiration

Peter Straub

Josh Malerman’s Bird Box will take its place amongst the best and most original tales of survival.  Uniquely disturbing, exceptionally compelling and beautifully written, I defy anyone not to read it in one sitting.

Sarah Pinborough, author of The Dog-Faced Gods trilogy

A book that demands to be read in a single sitting, and through the cracks between one’s fingers.  There has never been a horror story quite like this.  Josh Malerman truly delivers.

Hugh Howey, author of the bestselling Wool trilogy
