Malorie raises the children the only way she can; indoors. The house is quiet. The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows. They are out there. She might let them in. The children sleep in the bedroom across the hall. Soon she will have to wake them. Soon she will have to blindfold them. Today they must leave the house. Today they will risk everything.

Disappointing in so many ways
Didn't enjoy this at all. The narration was fine but the story was full of holes. The premise was promising enough - some sort of "phenomenon" that seems to devastate the whole world - but the author never really gets into what or why. I got the feeling that he just didn't have the answer so just avoided it. Plenty of speculation from the various characters, but I would have liked more depth on what actually happened and how the human race could prevail. I didn't feel any sense of dread and didn't care what happened to any of the characters. I mostly left waiting for ANYTHING to happen to move the story along. It wasn't horror, it wasn't scary, it wasn't creepy and the ending was just frustrating.

I am totally gripped!
What a great horror/psychological suspense novel.
It is a chilling story! As the world as we know it falls prey to an apocalyptic plague of suicidal, murderous behaviour triggered by glimpsing an unknown creature, Malorie must do all she can to survive. DO NOT OPEN YOUR EYES!
I have half an hour left until the end of the book and I don't want it to end! It is so gripping and will have you on the edge of your seat with anxiety for the characters involved.
