Bird box av Josh Malerman

Bird Box (häftad)

Soon to be a film starring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar, and John Malkovich.
Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world--a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.
Something is out there . . .
Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.
Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, 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 is 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. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?
Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey--a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside - and confront the ultimate question: in world gone mad, who can really be trusted?
Interviewing past and present, Josh Malerman breathtaking debut is a horric and gripping snapshot of a word unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.
Bokomslag och beskrivning hämtad från Bokus.

Detta är en bok, en dystopisk bok som jag har hört mycket gott om och jag har velat läsa länge, sen såg jag även att den blivit en film som visas på Netflix, som jag nu snart kan se då jag har läst boken nu.
Nu valde jag att läsa den för en examen i mina OWLs, divination.

Spännande och gripande bok, den blev nästan sträckläsning, fast lyssning då jag lyssnade på den. Gillade upplägget med att vi både får följa Malorie i början av det som händer men även parallellet med hur hon berättar om efter hon med två barn måste sätta sig i en roddbåt för att ta sig till "säkerheten", och då utan att egentligen veta vad hotet består av.
