Topic: Bird Box by:Josh Malerman
Usually, I read a book then watch the movie but for Bird box, I am doing it the other way around.
I want to compare them and see which one is better.
Already in the book, it starts off where Malorie, boy and girl are getting ready to leave their little house and getting their blindfolds on. In the book, it jumps from before it started and what's happening now, at the end of the movie it speeds up to where she is now so I’m guessing it will do the same in the book. Five years before, Malorie and her sister live together. Malorie founds out she’s pregnant, and her sister keeps going on about how the incidents that are happening in Russia are coming closer to America. Malorie doesn’t think it’s a big deal and keeps going on about her day. Shannon (Malorie’s sister) is worried and starts covering the windows with blankets. If there were this many reports I would be scared too, I wouldn’t know what to do.
Malorie calls her mom and tells her she’s pregnant. Malorie calls her mom almost every day just to check in with her. Malorie calls her mom and no answer, she keeps calling but still, there is no answer. If my mom didn’t answer the phone in a situation like this, I would be assuming the worst. For the next few chapters its still giving you a little insight into what happened. Malorie and Shannon start covering any view into the outside world. One day Malorie is watching the news channel and hears a thump upstairs. She calls out for Shannon, but no answer. She runs up the stairs and sees light, part of the blanket fell and a part of the window was uncovered. If I was Malorie right now I would be freaking out. Malorie goes to the bathroom and sees Shannon dead on the floor, she killed herself. Malorie knew that her sister would never do that, she then knew that it was the creatures outside who made her do this.
