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.
