Narrator Cassandra Campbell exquisitely evokes the existential dread that permeates Josh Malerman's well-wrought follow-up to his popular sci-fi suspense novel, BIRD BOX. America remains rife with creatures that drive viewers insane. Blindfolded and hooded, Malorie has kept her now-teenage children safe for 16 frightening years. Then they learn that Malorie's parents may be alive, and so begins a journey of terror and hope. Campbell's vivid audio portraits of fierce Malorie, rebellious Tom, and conflicted Olympia heighten the drama and draw listeners into a story that takes place as much inside the protagonists' heads as in the action. Her distinctly drawn portraits of walk-on characters add verisimilitude. And her pacing, from considered to pell-mell, drives an addictive rhythm throughout the gripping story. A.C.S.
