VoxVox by Christina Dalcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to PenguinRandom House Canada for this free book for review. This book has an interesting concept. In the USA all the women have been silenced. They are allowed to speak 100 words a day and this is monitored by a counter on their wrist that provides electrical shocks if they go over the limit. Woman are not allowed to work or read and are expected to focus on maintaining the house and looking after their families. This is a very interesting premise in today’s political climate. The writing keeps you on edge with the fear for any woman who dares to fight back against the government. The story moves along at a good pace and covers many issues such as womens’s equality and rights, voter apathy, etc. I did feel the ending was a bit too simplistic and rushed although I really enjoyed the book overall.
