EFCLibrary | 48 comments Post your thoughts on Vox by Christina Dalcher here.

Set in an America where half the population has been silenced, VOX is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter.

On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial—this can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her.

This is just the beginning.

Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard.

But this is not the end.

For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.


Courtney | 26 comments I finished this book yesterday, and was kind of disappointed. The book hooked me from the first page, and I really enjoyed it up until about the last 50 pages. (view spoiler)

I'm glad I read this one, but I don't know if I would read another by this author.
