Vox – Christina Dalcher

Published: 21st August 2018
Jean McClellan spends her time in almost complete silence, limited to just one hundred words a day. Any more, and a thousand volts of electricity will course through her veins.

The United States has a new president. Women no longer read, write or work. They stay at home, tend to their children and husband - keep house. They also don’t speak. Women have been limited to 100 words a day. Exceed this and they receive an electric shock which increases for every additional word they speak.
I read this book on recommendation from Emma-R. Joined library just to get book quickly. Brilliant debut from Dalcher. All women should read this book - believe the hype. Utterly terrifying - could this actually happen?
Completely brilliant 5 stars.
