Book Overview


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.

Reviews


‘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’
SFX

‘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’
SciFiNow

‘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.’
– Kirkus (STARRED REVIEW)
