MALORIE A BIRD BOX NOVEL ReviewThe version I read was a pre ARC file that Josh received from his editor, but judging from the file, I believe this will be the final version of the novel And what a novel it is My objectives with this pseudo review are twofold a I want to avoid any and all spoilers The last thing I want to do is ruin this experience for any of you b I d like to share my feelings about the book as clearly as I can So with the above two objectives in mind, I ve created a QA featuring questions you might have about the book and the best answers I can provide Here we go 1 Why did Josh Malerman write this novel We ve all seen and read sequels and prequels of varying quality Is MALORIE a money grab or an essential story Let me answer this question with a question For those of you familiar with BIRD BOX, at the end of that story did you think Malorie s character was finished evolving Had she really come to terms with this new world Listen, I really loved the first book, but even though Malorie changed in BIRD BOX, I didn t feel like her journey was over There are so many issues she still needs to work out, so many questions that still haven t been answered And what about her children What would it be like growing up in this world Living by the blindfold How would a young person feel if constrained by these strictures These are important questions, and their urgency proves that this is absolutely a story that needs to be told.This novel, though riveting, suspenseful, and at times flat out scary, is all about the characters, and that s why it succeeds so thoroughly At the end of JAWS the film version , Chief Brody s story was complete Same for Andy Dufresne and Red in THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION novella or movie, take your pick But the story of Malorie and her kids is not done at the end of BIRD BOX There s so much for them to learn, to endure, to battle, and to maybe overcome For all these reasons, I can tell you that, yes, this novel is absolutely essential Josh doesn t write for the money or the prestige he writes because he loves storytelling, and his imagination is as vivid as anyone working today This world called to him and demanded to be explored, and now having experienced the journey, I m grateful he heeded the call 2 Does it live up to the original This is going to be a controversial statement, but while I consider the original novel a modern classic of suspense, I slightly prefer MALORIE My reason for feeling this way lies in the heartbreaking resonance of the book s central relationships There were sections of this novel that were difficult to read because they rang too true Rarely do I understand and relate to both sides of a conflict the way I did with Malorie and her son Tom I won t say than that because I don t want to spoil anything, but if I were Malorie, I d think exactly the way she thinks, and if I were Tom, I d undergo the same feelings he experiences These opposing scripts comprise one of the novel s most powerful elements And for me, relationships like these elevate MALORIE just a small notch above BIRD BOX 3 Is it scary Good gravy, is it ever There are scenes here that had me curling my toes in dread Josh knows how to ambush the reader, and he knows how to subvert a reader s expectations So many times I thought I knew what was coming, only to have my expectations confounded by an unforeseen development that was twice as compelling as what I d assumed would happen This is a rare and marvelous gift So yes It s scary Damned scary 4 Is it emotional This is why I love the book so much Frights only take a story so far There s gotta be heart And MALORIE has emotion by the trainload I genuinely rooted for most of the characters, and I detested a couple of them too Yet at no time did the story feel manipulative This novel choked me up, made heart hammer, and caused me to pump my fists in joy That s a wondrous combination 5 Any final thoughts I love the structure of MALORIE To talk too much about it would be to ruin it, so I ll simply say this Everything in this novel has a purpose Seemingly minor events take on gargantuan meaning in unexpected ways A line of dialogue or a fleeting moment that seems self contained ends up connecting to another development in a way that makes you smile, cringe, or utter a breathless laugh of admiration I loved MALORIE Now that I ve read the novel, I can t imagine it not existing It s as essential as a second book can be I have to imagine that Josh felt some pressure to make this book special, but it sure doesn t read that way It reads like a gloriously natural continuation of BIRD BOX written by a blazingly talented author in total command of his craft. How do you follow up the worldwide phenomenon that is BIRD BOX Exactly like this Eerie and deliciously dark, MALORIE offers an unsettling glimpse into a world gone black, one lit only by the spark of hope This is one of those books you ll devour in a single sitting Releases July 2020. This isunexpected Totally and completely wrecked in the best way possible This was the sequel we never knew we desperately needed More to come I am so conflicted on this Bird Box works so well as a standalone, I don t know where the story could continue from where it ended. So Atwood and Malerman are both preparing unlikely sequels and both are scheduled to be published this fall Uhm, yes please. |DOWNLOAD PDF ☺ Malorie (Bird Box, #2) ♸ 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 Bestselling Author Josh Malerman Brings Unseen Horrors To Life The Film Adaptation Of Malerman S First Novel, Bird Box, Was Watched By Over Forty Five Million Netflix Accounts In The First Week, The Best First Seven Days Ever For A Film On The Platform Countless Came To Know The Story Through Social Media The Image Of Sandra Bullock S Character, Malorie, Blindfolded As She S Led Through A Terrifying Near Future Apocalypse By The Trained Ears Of Her Children Has Become Synonymous With A New Generation Of Horror Now From The Mind Of A True Master Of Suspense Comes The Next Chapter In The Riveting Tale This Time, Malorie Is Front And Center, And She Will Confront The Dangers Of Her World Head On The sequel we didn t know we neededIn Bird Box Malerman created a world just like our own, but one where horrors were in abundance just beyond every closed eyelid These horrors were unknown and uncategorised but instantly infected those who witnessed them with an insanity that saw its only outlet in the destruction of the self or those around them.Malorie has lived in this world for twelve long years Her two children are now in their teens and this reality has been the only one they have ever known Their mother however can well remember the bustle of city life and the joy of sighting a loved one Will this past ever be a possible future Just as in the first instalment, I was consistently impressed with how Malerman constructed a world lacking the sense we usually use to define it A pervading dread emanated from the pages, as horrors lurked in the dark and the reader joined Malorie in her explorations of it It was never evident were a threat would stem from, which meant I felt consistently terrorised by the actions throughout this book.This also became than a merely horrifying read as it explored the mental repercussions of living a life dogged by fear As the world was opened up so too were various characters experiences within it Stories were shared and, with them, insights to the various methods of survival some had taken.The conclusion was less concrete than I originally expected it to be but matched the tone throughout and ultimately had me revelling in the cleverness of the opaque reveal This remained as suspenseful as it did thought provoking throughout and I dually adored both sides of this dystopian story.I received this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author, Josh Malerman, and the publisher, Del Ray, for this opportunity. I NEED this book I wished for it on NetGalley likeforever ago. Just like it s predecessor, I finished Malorie in one sitting When I read Bird Box prior to the Netflix film release, I was stunned at it s atmospheric, claustrophobic horror and couldn t put it down To say that Malorie is similar would be an understatement Taking place immediately following the end on the first book, we then flash forward a decade into the apocalypse and see the world in different light With Malorie, Tom, and Olympia working together as a family, they get peculiar, yet intriguing evidence about some findings that force the trio to investigate for themselves I will not spoil anything for you, so that s what you get from me Once I turned to first page, I could not put Malorie down Josh Malerman s level of psychological panic as I d like to describe it as is deeply unsettling and yet, so cinematic in the best way possible It s no wonder that Bird Box did so well, both as a book and as a movie I just know horror fans expectations will be fulfilled with Malorie I couldn t recommend it enough Let s hope they make a Netflix sequel, I m going to be holding out hope
