Vox

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 sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard.

But this is not the end.

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



My Review

I have mixed feelings about this book. Which in a way can be a good thing as it means that the book is unforgettable. This book holds promise, it just did not execute. Where it was lacking are the characters. They were not that interesting at all. In where the characters lacked the words, they should have been able to make up with their personalities. The family that is the main focus in this story could have been really endearing if I could have found that connection.

Thus in turn the story itself was not as interesting as it should have been. The story needed the characters to help it find its "voice". It goes to show however that sometimes you don't need a lot of words to make a point. Finally, the ending was alright. There was no "wow" power. Again, this book could have been so much more.
