Inhaltsangabe

One of Entertainment Weekly's and SheReads' books to read after The Handmaid's Tale

One of Good Morning America's "Best Books to Bring to the Beach This Summer"

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 16,000 words a day, but now women have only 100 to make themselves heard.

But this is not the end.

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

The ending dissapoints

The general idea of the book is very interesting. In the current technological era, I find the basic assumption of the book actually more probable than that of "The Handmaid's Tale". However, the surprising huge underground movement and the rather sloppy and unconvincing ending do this book a lot of harm.
