Description

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



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 might 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.

Review quote

'BIRD BOX turns the old Hollywood cliche of facing down the demon inside out - then tears it into little pieces'
Daily Mail


'A book that demands to be read in a single sitting, and through the cracks between one's fingers'
Hugh Howey


'A lean, spellbinding thriller that Stephen King fans will relish.'
Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)


'You wonder whether that brush against your shoulder was some unspeakable horror or merely a falling leaf'
SFX


'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


'Nailbiting ... will keep you gripped till the last chapter'
SciFiNow


'Unflagging suspense and ever-present dread'
Adam Nevill


'Uniquely disturbing, exceptionally compelling and beautifully written, I defy anyone not to read it in one sitting'
Sarah Pinborough


'An unsettling thriller, earns comparisons to Hitchcock's The Birds, as well as the finer efforts of Stephen King and cult sci-fi fantasist Jonathan Carroll.'
- Kirkus (STARRED REVIEW)
