Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remains, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now that the boy and girl are four, it's time to go, but the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat--blindfolded--with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. Something is following them all the while, but is it man, animal, or monster?
Interweaving past and present, Bird Box is a snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page. @goodreads
Holy crap on a cracker, y'all! This book!
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?
Malorie was with her sister when these events started happening and she also found out she was pregnant. Oh happy day!
Malorie ends up with some people in a house and they only go outside when they need to look for more food. They make sure they are blindfolded and stuff. Sometimes when you're out there you feel something touch you. Or is that your imagination.
Then of course you freak out some more. People, I would never exist for more than a second in this world!
I liked some of the people Malorie was living with and they were doing okay, until . . . that one day they let the wrong person in. . . sigh. . . . . .
I mean you have a nice little set up with your dogs and birds and food and then, BAM! Anyhoo, none of that happens until later on during a very crazy night. That's all I'm saying.
Malorie lives in a house for 4 years. She raises children. Then what happens? Read the book and find out =)
