At the conclusion of Bird Box, which I read a few years ago, I was left wondering what happened next to Malorie and her children. Admittedly, I often finish stories feeling curious about what happened next to the characters. So, when Josh Malerman wrote Malorie, where he tells the story of what happened next, I was super excited. #MountTBR

It's been a long time since I've read Bird Box, but I thought this was an excellent follow up. I was very tense throughout this entire read. And I thought the ending was very satisfying.

I wasn‘t expecting to enjoy this one as much as Bird Box but I did!! Two things stood out: the relationship between Malorie and her 16-year-old son Tom reminded me of mine with my own son in a lot of ways, namely where Tom thinks Malorie‘s rules and ideas are old and outdated. And the divide/relationship between blindfold-wearers and those who do not reminds me of our life over the past year or two. Lots of layers to this one and so suspenseful.

So, so excited to be listening to Malorie after *loving* Bird Box a few weeks ago. I started holding my breath for Malorie, Olympia, and Tom immediately-as soon as the story started. I hope that level of suspense stays all the way thru the story. That‘s one thing I really enjoyed about Bird Box.

Cassandra Campbell narrates these characters so well.

I usually have a hard time with sequels after loving the first book but that was definitely not an issue with this one. The story flowed from where Bird Box ends. This was just as eerie and exciting as the first one. The ending was mind blowing to me and very satisfying. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Characters were realistic but there was still something missing. They didn't make me to read on edge, being afraid for their well-being.

I can't tell almost anything without spoiling but this was overall enjoyable. Ending was a bit disappointing; it was way too unbelievable clean.

3½⭐ Narrator 🎧 Cassandra Campbell
Book one left me unfulfilled with the ending and I had hoped that book two would have come through for me and give me the answers I craved…but, I don‘t think it did. It sort of did…but not enough. The story was also a little slow at times. I really believe this Audiobook would‘ve been so much better with separate narrators for Tom and Olympia…especially since their POVs made this story actually worthwhile.

Fantastic ending to Bird Box! 💫💫💫💫💫 Five stars! This novel wasn't as intense as the first one but I liked them both. This novel to me had a good mixture of slow build on the scary parts and character driven the rest. Loved it! Has anyone watched the Netflix series? Is it any good? #Horror

HeathHof This was a 5⭐ for me as well! 1y
sharread @Mynameisacolour ❤ I really liked that the stories location was Michigan. Cool. 😁 1y
WJCintron I read both books and agree with you. I LOVE them both! He is now one of my favorite authors. The movie... if you want my honest opinion, don't watch it. They changed a LOT of things. Even how things happen in the boat with the children. I LOVED Sandra B's acting, but all the rest was just bad and insulting in my opinion to the book. If you do watch it or if you watched already, let me know what you think. Maybe it's me, lol. 1y

Starts out with a bang then calms down. Time skips ahead and suddenly the kids are teenagers and they've been living the last decade in relative safety until something happens that spurs Malorie into action, luring her & the kids away from the protection of their home. The decision seems unlikely given the Malorie readers have come to know. Regardless, danger & mayhem & horror ensue, culminating in a satisfying ending. Can't compete with Bird Box.

BookDragonNotWorm This one focuses more on the character's emotions as they come of age in the 'new' world and the specific challenges that presents, which isn't a bad thing, but it does put a minor damper on the horror. Still, a good read.

A #sequel that does justice to Bird Box, Malorie is a fantastic novel. Well written and wonderfully executed. A #psychologicalthriller that explores the good and bad in people and what happens when it‘s clear that the creatures are not leaving. If you enjoyed #BirdBox , I suggest reading Malorie.

If you‘ve watched Netflix‘s Bird Box, would you be interested in a sequel? If you‘ve read Malorie, would you be interested in a screen adaption?

💖 @TheAromaofBooks (This has really motivated me to get through more books, gonna try and finish two more this month)
This was a nice addition to the story of Bird Box, it didn't quite have the same shock value, but I liked it. Malorie is a good title, because we really get to get in her head. She has to come to terms with who she has become and how she has raised her kids in this crazy world. 👇

Tera66 The ending is really touching and Malorie gets to take care of some business 🏹. 😵 (there is a lot less violence in this one tho). I do hope that Josh Malerman does write another story following Malorie to her next chapter. ⭐⭐⭐ 2y

🎧 Bird Box sequel. Thank you Libby!

The story was insanely tense. It takes place about ten years after their trip down the river. Tom & Olympia (Malorie‘s kids) are in their late teens & typical kids.

It was a quick read with multiple flashbacks. The author has painted a dark atmospheric world of paranoia, anxiety & fear as seen through the annoying MC. A quest. A twist.

If you loved Bird Box you will probably enjoy the sequel. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was the sequel none of us knew we needed! I am glad I didn‘t re-read bird box before diving in, a lot of the inner dialog highlights the influential parts from that story. It is a good journey with lots of suspense and thrill! I just want to know more about these dang ‘things‘ still! If you were invested in bird box, it is def. worth the read!

LOVED the book. I felt the ending was a bit rushed. I wasn't a fan of the teen & how his character development came to an end. The author is fantastic. He manages to create tension with simple and relatable writing. I think it has to do with him being a songwriter. You have to be able to do a lot and move people with your lyrics. That gives him an edge while writing fiction. I kept reading & devoured the book. I recommend it 100%.

This was such a great follow up to Bird Box! It starts off with a bang and doesn‘t let up on the tension and anxiety until very close to the end. We get to see Malorie‘s kids grow into teenagers and see how their view of this world they‘ve been born into - and their abilities because of that - differ so from Malorie‘s. Loved it! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I was excited to read this sequel after watching and enjoying Bird Box on Netflix. You find out what happens in the years after and watch Tom and Olympia grow in to their own as characters. The first 90% is great with some exciting twists, but the ending is so rushed. Maybe it will translate better in to a film? I feel like the end was written with this in mind and not as a stand alone novel.

I really enjoyed this sequel to Bird Box! Perfect read for this time of year. I started it late at night and stopped because it started off a bit too scary for me. 😅 It was intense immediately and I wasn't mentally prepared for it. Had to get through that part in the light of day.

This was just okay for me. I really enjoyed Bird Box and was excited for this. I found Malorie annoying in this book- her paranoia about the creatures was overdone. I liked Olympia- she balanced out the other characters. I enjoyed the last third of the book but overall, this was a bit of a letdown.

Really enjoyed the follow up to Bird Box! While I felt the ending wrapped up way too quickly, I think that's in part due to the fact that I didn't want the story to end! A fun, page-turning thriller perfect for the Halloween season!

Malorie and her children are safely living at the School for the Blind when a woman unexpectedly turns after an encounter with a creature. Malorie and the kids flee only to learn years later of a blind train that is running...

Definitely had a couple scary parts and loved the train aspect in this one!

I knew it had to wrap up eventually but was disappointed in the ending. *shrugs* After such an engaging 250 pages, I just wanted more.

TheRiehlDeal I agree. I was definitely disappointed in the ending. I felt it was a little rushed. 2y

I was very excited when I saw that there was going to be a sequel to Bird Box. I like how this book gave us a back story on Malorie so we were able to learn more about her. It also let you see her children and how they were dealing with the world they were living in. Also how the teens made their own choices and how it effected them!

In the thrilling sequel to Bird Box, the inspiration for the record-breaking Netflix film that starred Sandra Bullock and “absolutely riveted” Stephen King, New York Times best-selling author Josh Malerman brings unseen horrors to life.

“This sequel is as tense and harrowing as the original, with a new depth that raises the stakes.”
