Bird Box by Josh Malerman was a really interesting and gripping study of fear and its manifestations.
I was firstly drawn to this book by a couple of good reads friend's reviews of it and secondly by the Novel's cover which gives the reader a glimpse of fear that quickly unfolds as you read this post apocalyptic novel.
" The house is quiet. The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows. They are out there..................
Every now and then I love a novel like this that gives me something different to fuel my imagination and believe me my imagination was working overtime while reading Bird box.
I think an important fact readers need to beware of is that Bird box wont give you all the answers and is not an action packed novel, this is one of those books that you the reader takes part in the atmosphere of the story and I suggest you reading this in one or two sittings to get the full impact.
An interesting and atmospheric novel, well worth reading if you have an interest in Post Apocalyptic type books.
