Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 338,576 views on Friday, 28 December 2018 our article of the day is Bird Box.
Bird Box is a 2014 post-apocalyptic novel and the debut work of Josh Malerman, the lead singer of the High Strung. The book was first published in the United Kingdom on March 27, 2014 through Harper Voyager and in the United States on May 13, 2014 through Ecco Press. The book follows a woman who must find a way to guide herself and her children to safety despite the potential threat from an unseen adversary. The story is partially told via flashbacks and takes place during three different time periods.
Malerman wrote the rough draft of Bird Box prior to the release of the 2008 M. Night Shyamalan film The Happening and the 2009 film The Road (although the novel The Road was written in 2006), which caused him to worry that the book "might get lost in the shuffle."
