Publisher Description

Josh Malerman’s debut novel BIRD BOX is a terrifying, psychological thriller that is sure to stay with you long after reading.

Most people dismissed the reports on the news. But they became too frequent; they became too real. And soon it was happening to people we knew.

Then the Internet died. The televisions and radios went silent. The phones stopped ringing

And we couldn’t look outside anymore.


‘BIRD BOX turns the old Hollywood cliché 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’

‘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’

'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.’

Eyes closed..

Good read, but a little disappointing after reading such good reviews.

Birdbox is the best book I have read since Harry Potter!!

This book is truly an amazing read!! After reading the first few pages I couldn't put it down I'm not really one for reading horror but this book is so well written with such a captivating story it's so hard not to read, I really hope there is another book to follow on the story or even just another book from the writer. An absolute must read!! You won't be disappointed!

A read in one sitting page turner

Well paced, the horror builds slowly. Reconvened even if horror is not your normal thing.
