I was a little hesitant to like Bird Box at first. I didn't understand why Malorie doesn't have names for her kids. Calling them "Boy" and "girl" got to me. But, as the story progressed, I found myself getting suck in more and more. This book is definitely creepy and big on tension. I liked how the story unfolded by waffling back and forth between the past and the present. One thing about the book is that it really makes you think about eyesight and what it would be like to have to survive in the dark. I'm not sure I would be that brave. This is a great debut and one I highly recommend. I think this author has a bright future and I look forward to seeing what he has in store for us next!
