Bird box

Bird Box by Josh Malerman.  This is one creepy book. A certain something causes madness, homicidal and suicidal rages in those who see it. Starting with a few isolated cases in Russia before spreading across the globe this post-apocalyptic novel exudes almost unbearable tension.

The only way to survive is to effectively ‘blind’ oneself: board up windows inside, blindfold yourself if you go outside. To see it or them is to die a violent death.

This is a highly recommended story of a mother and her children and how she tries to escape a world gone mad.
