James Herbert Award for Horror Writing Best Book (nominee)
Josh Malerman’s debut novel Bird Box is a terrifying, Hitchcockesque psychological horror 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.

Praise for this book

"A book that demands to be read in a single sitting, and through the cracks between one's fingers." - Hugh Howey

"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

"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
