    oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best science fiction 2018! what will happen? What do they study now, our girls? A bit of addition and subtraction, telling time, making change. Counting, of course. They would learn counting first. All the way up to one hundred. ...

    This one didn't really work for me, but I am giving it one more star than I feel to compensate for my current state of mind - I'm not really feeling into dystopia at the moment, and that isn't this book's fault. I also haven't been able to stomach the second season of The Handmaid's Ta...

    Christina Dalcher?s ?Vox? is the latest novel to give us a fully inflated misogynist nightmare. The story melds one of Western culture?s oldest prejudices with the future?s slickest technology: In the America she imagines, every woman can say only 100 words a day. As a pre...

    Ah damn. I had such high hopes for this one. The premise/hook is fantastic, and with the second season of The Handmaid's Tale starting at the end of this month it's going to be so easy for marketers to draw parallels to Atwood's classic feminist masterpiece. But Vox *is not* that book....

    Maybe this is how it happened in Germany with the Nazis, in Bosnia, with the Serbs, in Rwanda with the Hutus. I?ve often wondered about that, how kids can turn into monsters, how they can learn that killing is right and oppression is just, how in one single generation the world can ...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest I'm very upset about all the people who read this book and walked away thinking, "Not all Christians! Not all men!" If that was the only thing you took from this admittedly flawed novel, then you are part of the reason tha...

    Soooo, women of the USA... imagine that the government has decided that you are only allowed 100 words a day. That all the men around you can speak/read/sign ALL THE WORDS they want, but you get 100 in each 24 hour span. Just think about that for awhile. This book felt all too real...

    3.5 The Scarlet letter for the near future, but instead of s Puritan society and the red letter A, we have a society where the Christian right has prevailed. Women, even babies are fitted with a leather wristband that limits the words spoken in a day to a hundred. The first time you go...

    a quick google search will show that women speak an average of 20,000 words per day. so imagine if you were limited to only 100. pretty unfathomable thought, right? that is exactly why i love dystopian novels. they are the most effective at taking me outside of my bubble, placing me...

    This is one of those books that's just blah for me. The very definition of mediocre, from the storyline to the characters and beyond. There's really nothing that stands out, at least not in a positive way. The author has somehow managed to take a unique plot line with limitless pote...

    ?The average person speaks 16,000 words per day. But what if women were limited to just 100??and it's not in Iran, or Arab countries, but in the US itself. That's the 5 Stars premise of ?Vox? But now I wish to limit some authors to just 100 pages per novel.. May be it's ...

    I?m not usually a fan of science fiction but the premise for this novel intrigued me. I looked at it as an escape from heavy historical fiction and thrillers. I was looking for a quick read that kept me interested and this book did just that. There are many, many reviewers who are...

    This novel depicts a chilling dystopia, or as Mike Pence might call it: a visionary blue print for America. Women are limited to speaking only 100 words per day and ?immoral? behavior results in hard labor concentration camps. The author does a great job of setting up the world wit...

    4 thought-provoking and brave stars to Vox! I don?t usually read dystopian books, and to be honest, I?m not that familiar with the genre. Upon reading the premise of Vox, I knew it would have a place on my reading list because of its timeliness and the bravery of the author in t...

    With Vox by Christina Dalcher being compared heavily to Margaret Atwood?s The Handmaid?s Tale I decided that in order to do an accurate review I needed to push myself to actually read The Handmaid?s Tale all the way through before picking up this title. I know many have loved Atw...

    A copycat of The Handmaid's Tale in many ways - and in what sort of modern society exactly would this type of scenario actually unfold? Not to distract too much from the book itself, but decades ago women and men alike were fighting for the rights of women. The right to vote, the ri...

    Somewhere along the line, what was known as the Bible Belt, that swath of Southern states where religion ruled, started expanding. It morphed from belt to corset, covering all but the country?s limbs?the democratic utopias of California, New England, the Pacific Northwest, DC, the ...

    These days my country consists of states united in hate. At its helm is a man-child. A bully consumed by power, lacking intellect, as well as being morally and ethically deficient. So while the premise of Vox is extreme it doesn?t seem far-fetched. The severe subjugation of women by ...

    It?s about time to read another book that made it on my "Book List 2019" and even though I already know that this one is going to upset me I still want to read it. The mere idea of women not being allowed to speak is gruesome and I don?t even want to imagine that a world like t...

    Ohh, this was bad. Terribly, terribly disappointing. The premise is really intriguing and I would love to read about it in a BETTER book. I expected a good dystopian set up that deals with sexism.. What I got is a weird thriller that KIND OF addressed that topic. At least it pre...
