Something is out there . . . Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from. Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat'blindfolded'with nothing to rely on but Malorie's wits and the children's trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster' Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey'a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motley group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside'and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted' Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman's breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.… (mere)

I may have given this to the HAWL Library, as I currently cannot find it. I believe it was a CD audiobook.

This was strange and not something I enjoyed. Have also seen the film. Strange.

Something is out there....

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: 20 miles downriver in a rowboat blindfolded with nothing to rely on but Malorie's wits and the children's trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey - a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motley group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside and confront the ultimate question: In a world gone mad, who can really be trusted? ( )

A bit slow in the beginning but by the end I couldn't wait to finish. Not as scary as I thought but still a great concept for a horror novel. ( )

I enjoyed this one a lot. In fact, much more than I thought I would.

Initially, I got a bit of a sense of The Southern Reach Trilogy which, over the course of the three novels, I learned to despise. It never lost that sense of "what's happened here?" that it shared with The Southern Reach, but it handled it much better.

Then, it began to feel very much like The Road in its stark bleakness. The Road didn't do much for me, but I think a lot of that had to do with the irritating stylistic issues I have with McCarthy's written words (no quotation marks for dialogue, no apostrophes for contractions, so "won't" and "can't" become "wont" and "cant" which are, of course, two completely different words). But again, Malerman injected a humanity, a feeling of stark terror that I never got from The Road.

And the best part about this novel was how the terror crept up on you. Without spoiling anything, I'll say that Malerman created one of the most subversively nasty villains I've seen lately. And, the last few scenes in the book (you'll know when you get there) are absolutely harrowing. It's actually shocking how Malerman kept the terror, normally a short-lived thing, going and going and going.

The only issue, and, to be honest, it's minor, because in the grand scheme of things, it worked, was that the ending felt a little...I'm not sure "tacked on" is the right phrase. Perhaps it was different enough from the rest of the book that I found it a touch jarring? Not sure, but, at least in the 12 hours since I've finished the book, I'm still not sure it's sitting well with me.

But, as I said, it wasn't horrible, and in a few days, I may come back to it (like I did the end of the Dark Tower series and the end of the Harry Potter series) and say, yes, that's exactly how it should have ended, how it needed to end.

Very well done overall. I'll definitely read more of Malerman. ( )

this is just as good as the movie version, but this story is different than what is told on screen ( )

wow. That was a really good read. 2018

There were two timelines. The present and the not too distant past and somehow he weaved them wonderfully. Usually things were presented first in the "present". Example from the first chapter so it's not spoilery- The blood stains on the wall.... You know something major went down in the place she is living. Eventually in the "past" chapters you learn about the blood stains. Very well laid out story line.

I probably wouldn't read again and I was having a hard time suspending belief for some of it. For those reasons not a 5*. But I would recommend and will look for other books by this author to read.

The last quarter of the book was really unputdownable for me. It's been fun picturing my life like Malorie's. Could I do it?

The man on the river must of been like Gary. He could handle being with the "creatures" for a bit. I call BS to the creature tugging her blindfold. RIP Victor :(

Doesn't help it make any more sense to me be but the author said:
"fleeing from infinity because they can't look at it they can't comprehend it, they can't try to comprehend it or they will go mad" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJOt2XC-UnI ( )

Malerman overreaches a bit in his debut, which could use as much attention to the cast as to the mood, but the mood is chillingly effective.
