"In a world where you can’t open your eyes, isn’t a blindfold all you could ever hope for?" -⭐⭐⭐⭐- 🐦 Everything started in Russia, when some mad men saw something, and a little later attacked whoever was close and killed themselves afterwards. But Russian news can lack credibility sometimes.
🐦 Then the reports came from Canada and Michigan. So propably sth is going on, but nothing to worry, the authorities will handle it. Better stay inside though, as they advise on the TV.
🐦 Finally, you discover your sister dead in the bathroom and you can’t ignore it anymore. The Problem is real and the Creatures are out to get us.
#Birdbox by #joshmalerman is a post-apocalyptic novel (2014) revolving around a literally unseeable threat to humanity. It follows Malorie as she tries to find shelter from a threat no one can see, but everybody feels them creeping, stalking and waiting for you to open your eyes!
I don't usually pick up #scaryreads , but the premise of Birdbox was unique and intriguing. You dive into the story as blind to what is happening as the protagonist. I was almost too afraid to look up from the pages, fearing I'd encounter the Creatures.
QOTD: Have you read Birdbox? Do you think you'd be able to keep your eyes closed for the rest of your life?
