The book came before A Quiet Place, so even though A Quiet Place was a thousand times better, we can afford some respect for Bird Box.
Here's the thing, tho, it wasn't scary. There were some suspenseful moments, but if all you have to do to survive is close your eyes, a lot of the danger is eliminated.
And why can't the badness happen inside a house or building? Seems like a convenient save for book purposes.
