I finished reading Malorie by Josh Malerman. It is the sequel to the book BirdBox. Yes, I have read BirdBox and seen the movie.
Warning: there is some violence.
Note: I didn’t want this book to end. Now I’m sad that has ended. I do hope the movie will be as good as the book.
In this book, Malorie and the two kids are at the school of the blind. About a year into their stay there, a woman who seemly blind goes mad and kills almost everyone. Malorie thinks the creatures touched the blind woman, but it was later revealed that blind woman wasn’t really blind. Malorie and the two kids make their way to an abandon camp. They make their home there. The two kids become teenagers. Then one day a man appears at the camp. He says he is taking a census. Malorie tells him to leave and he does. The teenagers discover he had left the census papers behind. They read the papers and discover that Malorie’s parents are on a list of survivors. Malorie decides to try to find her parents. So they go get on a train which leads them to a town where her parents are at.
I loved this book. Now I’m reading The Darwin Affair by Tim Mason.
