Book Review: Vox – Christina Dalcher (in 100 words)

9780008300630

Imagine a modern world where women and girls are only allowed to speak 100 words per day and suffer dire consequences if they disobey. No work, no rights – and people disappear overnight. Vox issues a stark warning to those who do not use their voices to stand up for their beliefs.

The book is intense, terrifying, and anger-inducing. My only criticism is that the intensity waned in the last third and lost its golden thread of being a social commentary.

I thoroughly enjoyed it but would’ve liked to have seen the thread maintained throughout. Highly recommended for book clubs.

(Word count – 100. Phew.)

Many thanks to NetGalley and HQ Stories for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

Four stars


Vox by Christina Dalcher is out in the UK on 23rd August 2018.
