Review: Vox by Christina Dalcher

August 21, 2018

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.

**** 4 Star Review ****


This is one of those books where I loved it, but didn't love it at the same time. It is definitely a very unique book that kept me on my toes from start to finish.


The good... The overall story was so intriguing. I think because it's almost possible, whether it be our country or another country, it made it that more interesting to read. 


The characters were so well developed. I felt connected to them whether it was in a positive or negative way. I felt vested in each character. Good versus evil. Who will prevail? These characters were absolutely outstanding.


The plot moved at such a wonderful pace. I couldn't put it down. I was anticipating the end in a way that had me on edge to see what was going to come of these characters and the country as a whole.


The bad... I never like to be able to feel a writer's political bias in their writing. If I wanted political bias, I would pick up a political non-fictional sensational book, not a fictional book. I could pick out this authors biases left and right, and I will admit, it left me feeling unsettled. I had a hard time with wanting to finish the book because of it at times, even though I was totally vested in the book. So caution to authors, while you are human, know that your audience may not like your personal political bias trickling into your work, whether they share your bias or not.


Overall, this is definitely a book I would recommend to many. Not all. There are those who are absolutely not going to like it. Usually, those that wouldn't like it are those that are close minded and easily ruffled. Those of us with open minds and thick skin are going to enjoy this book.
