Astrid Lim and 28 other people liked Elaine's review of Vox:
Vox by Christina Dalcher
"Don't you just HAATTEE it when a book's hook is great but the story is so lame?

Vox by Christina Dalcher
"Essentially The Handmaid's Tale with a scientific twist and much less contemplation. The prose is engaging but unremarkable; the events are far too stretched-out, most of them being just plain unbelievable. Not much to compliment in Vox, really, b..." Read more of this review »
