Bird Box by Josh Malerman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’m a bit conflicted about this book. There was a lot to like but some things about the author’s style kept hanging me up. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it was – besides the third person, present tense choice – that kept pulling me out of the story, but I was yanked out of it a lot. Oh, and the going back and forth in time. I didn’t like that much either. But the intensity was very good in places and, really, that made it worthwhile.
The book is quite a bit different from the Netflix movie but I enjoyed them both.
