Inhaltsangabe

The national best seller

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

"[An] electrifying debut.” (O, The Oprah Magazine

“The real-life parallels will make you shiver.” (Cosmopolitan

Set in a United States in which 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 per day, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial. This can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her.

Soon women are not permitted to hold jobs. Girls are not 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.

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

This is just the beginning...not the end. 

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

One of PopSugar, Refinery29, Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, Real Simple, i09, and Amazon's Best Books to Read in August 2018.

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.
