I read this in one sitting (a fairly long sitting, but I really couldn't put it down!). It's such a good book. It follows Malorie, a young woman who discovers she is pregnant just as there are growing numbers of reports of strange incidents of violence around the world. These incidents start in Russia, but are gradually getting closer and closer to Malorie's American home town. As the violence increases, people are advised not to go outside, or even to look outside, for fear of seeing whatever it is that causes people to kill others and then themselves. Gradually, things get worse and worse, and Malorie finds herself answering a newspaper advertisement to join other survivors living in a house together. The story flits back and forth in time, from her time in the house with the others, during her pregnancy, to the present where she is with two children, attempting escape from the confines of the house. I got totally engrossed in the story, and can understand why the story has been purchased and will be made into a film. The only thing that annoyed me was the way Malorie calls the children 'boy' and 'girl' all the way through - it's really irritating. But that is one teeny tiny moan in what is otherwise a really original, scary story.
