    Amazing read, a post apocalyptic thriller

    Wow, just wow. Started reading and couldn't stop. It's the story of what happens when too many of the same people get into leadership roles and change it to suit themselves. It starts with half of the workforce who now have to stay at home and live up to strict limitations.. Who are these people that are treated this way ,you may ask? It's women and girls. Dr. Jean McClellan’s job before the life changing events was trying to help stroke victims with their expressive aphasia. Words come out but don't mean anything to the other person. The President 's brother had an accident with a head injury and wanted Dr McClellan's help to reverse his aphasia. She finally agreed on her terms. This book is great and I don't want to reveal too much, but it beyond rocks. So much in-depth research had to be done before writing this book. I'm extremely impressed by how the writing and the story all came together. I will be recommending it highly, especially to my medical friends, but anyone can read and enjoy it. I am honored to be able to review such a great book from Net Galley and Berkeley Publishing for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.

    Vox by Christina Dalcher

    A great book!!! A 5 out of 5 rating. One of those books that is impossible to put down. Women in the United States have been limited to 100 words per day and have been removed from the work force. You can feel the main character Jean's tension and frustration...as well as her fear for her children and their future. The characters were very believable...and, unfortunately...some were very relatable to people we know today!!!

    Scarey, but thought-provoking.

    Easy, quick read. Way too close to home. Worth the time.

    Vox (spoiler alert)

    The premise of the story is terrifying. The first half of the novel is wonderful dystopian fiction. Unfortunately the second half turns into an action thriller as the story races to a neat and tidy happy ending. I liked it but felt that the story's true potential was wasted.

    The Silent Majority

    Imagine waking up one morning, going to work and being told you're no longer eligible to work anymore simply because you're female. Then imagine being told that you're limited to only 100 spoken words a day, you're not allowed to use sign language of any kind, you can't write notes, and you're not allowed access to cell phones, computers, or your bank account. If you're unmarried, you must get married and if you're part of the LGBTQIA population, you will be sent away to special camps and you're children -- biological or adopted, will be taken away from you. No this isn't a world in the distant future, this is America in the near future and the Christian right has taken charge and nothing seems to be standing in their way. Now imagine that something tragic reportedly happens to a member of the President's extended family and the only people that can help are two female scientists and they're expected to come up with a vaccine to treat the problem in an incredibly short period of time. The good news is that their "counters" will be removed and they'll be allowed to freely speak to their families and fellow researchers. The bad news is that the vaccine and the research may well be used for nefarious purposes by the government. The question becomes will they or won't they help? Is there anything they can possibly do to stop the government from continuing to go off half-cocked? Dr. Jean McClellan is a neurolinguist and has been married for more than 18 years to Patrick, a medical doctor. Patrick is now a high ranking official in the current presidential regime, their eldest son, Steven, is a proud member of the Pure Boys movement that monitors and reports on others in area schools and within their community, and their daughter Sonia is only being taught what is deemed necessary to become a good wife and mother. All Jean wants is for things to go back to normal and she knows that although she hasn't been able to be outspoken in the past, she must do everything possible to force a change...no matter what. Vox by Christina Dalcher is a powerful and scary book. In some ways, it is reminiscent of both The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and When She Woke by Hillary Jordan and in others, it is very different. All three books feature dystopian societies where ultraconservative religious groups are in power and forcing their societal and moral visions on others. Adding to the drama within Vox is the notion that females should be seen and not heard and are penalized if they go over their 100 words per day with ever-increasing electric shocks via their "counters" attached to their wrists (yes, even infants and young girls). Obviously, there's a lot more going on in this story than just the societal injustices and the silencing of females, Jean and her husband Patrick are experiencing marital problems, there's an extramarital affair resulting in a pregnancy, and much more. I found Vox to be a fast-paced and highly engrossing read (I woke up very early one morning, began reading it, and simply couldn't stop until the very end). I enjoyed the characters, the dialogue, the settings, and the action. If you enjoy reading about family angst and drama coupled with societal injustice with touches of dystopian science-fiction and a pinch of horror, then Vox is the perfect read for you. (This book has a little bit of something for everyone.) I highly recommend this book to everyone as I feel it is a timely and worthwhile read, hopefully, you'll agree. For now, I'll be setting aside Vox and hope to reread it again in the near future (yes, I enjoy rereading books!). I also look forward to reading more from Ms. Dalcher.
