    I have decided to add a disclaimer to my review. The review in it's entirely is below in the spoiler tag. Here are my reasons for the disclaimer: - I knew that this would be controversial as it touches on a hot button topic. But, responses have become uncomfortable to the point I cr...

    "Honestly, Jacko. You're getting hysterical about it." Her words flew at me like poisoned arrows. "Well, someone needs to be hysterical around here." I am absolutely blown away. My heart and soul are just dangling by a thread. Honestly, I have not been this angered (and wonde...

    Maybe this is how it happened in Germany with the Nazis, in Bosnia, with the Serbs, in Rwanda with the Hutus. I?ve often wondered about that, how kids can turn into monsters, how they can learn that killing is right and oppression is just, how in one single generation the world can ...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... As soon as I read the description for this novel, I knew it was a book I HAD to read. I?m often running to Google for one thing or another when I?m reading a thought-provoking book. But this time...

    These days my country consists of states united in hate. At its helm is a man-child. A bully consumed by power, lacking intellect, as well as being morally and ethically deficient. So while the premise of Vox is extreme it doesn?t seem far-fetched. The severe subjugation of women by ...

    Okay sorry but this was just bad. The premise is really intriguing and I would love to read about it in a BETTER book. I expected a good dystopian set up that deals with sexism.. What I got is a weird thriller that KIND OF addressed that topic. I don't even really know how to e...

    NOW AVAILABLE!!! What do they study now, our girls? A bit of addition and subtraction, telling time, making change. Counting, of course. They would learn counting first. All the way up to one hundred. as a thought-piece, i would give this a high four stars, but as a novel, it...

    This novel depicts a chilling dystopia, or as Mike Pence might call it: a visionary blue print for America. Women are limited to speaking only 100 words per day and ?immoral? behavior results in hard labor concentration camps. The author does a great job of setting up the world wit...

    This one didn't really work for me, but I am giving it one more star than I feel to compensate for my current state of mind - I'm not really feeling into dystopia at the moment, and that isn't this book's fault. I also haven't been able to stomach the second season of The Handmaid's Ta...

    ?The average person speaks 16,000 words per day. But what if women were limited to just 100??and it's not in Iran, or Arab countries, but in the US itself. That's the 5 Stars premise of ?Vox? But now I wish to limit some authors to just 100 pages per novel.. May be it's ...

    I'll have to shelf this one under Abominations of Fiction. Here's the present situation in America: Liberals find Christian morality offensive and Christians find liberal immorality offensive. With the advent of Christianity and Civilization in pagan Europe, our barbarian ...

    Ah damn. I had such high hopes for this one. The premise/hook is fantastic, and with the second season of The Handmaid's Tale starting at the end of this month it's going to be so easy for marketers to draw parallels to Atwood's classic feminist masterpiece. But Vox *is not* that book....

    This is one of those books that's just blah for me. The very definition of mediocre, from the storyline to the characters and beyond. There's really nothing that stands out, at least not in a positive way. The author has somehow managed to take a unique plot line with limitless pote...

    Soooo, women of the USA... imagine that the government has decided that you are only allowed 100 words a day. That all the men around you can speak/read/sign ALL THE WORDS they want, but you get 100 in each 24 hour span. Just think about that for awhile. This book felt all too real...

    Christina Dalcher?s ?Vox? is the latest novel to give us a fully inflated misogynist nightmare. The story melds one of Western culture?s oldest prejudices with the future?s slickest technology: In the America she imagines, every woman can say only 100 words a day. As a pre...

    I?m not usually a fan of science fiction but the premise for this novel intrigued me. I looked at it as an escape from heavy historical fiction and thrillers. I was looking for a quick read that kept me interested and this book did just that. There are many, many reviewers who are...

    Wow. This is a hard review to write. I have to separate what I felt about the subject matter from how I feel about the writing/plot development/characters/etc., and that is not an easy thing to do when all I really want to do is stand on my soapbox for a few minutes! But I will say,...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi dystopian eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . So I seem to be in the minority again. This book irked me. The premise is that a misogynistic bunch of males has taken over the gov...

    I have mixed emotions after reading this book. This is probably one of the hardest reviews I've ever had to write. It took me a couple days of thinking it over before I could figure out what I needed to say....and then the right words to say it. I wanted so badly to enjoy and reall...

    Get ready to read this one, sure to be all over social media this fall! As we can imagine, contention in government could lead to citizens? rights being taken away, and in Vox, author Christina Dalcher goes to the extreme with this concept and shows us how easy it is to change people...

    A highly significant and timely book exploring the question: What if women could only speak 100 words per day? SUMMARY There?s a new President in the White House, Sam Myers was elected by the votes garnered by ultra conservative Southern Baptist Reverend Carl Corbin. A Presidenta...

    3 entertaining stars True to the form that science fiction takes, this book was entertaining and one that held my interest. I must confess that I am not much of a science fiction novel reader, but the premise of this book was intriguing. Women are silenced, limited to one hundred wo...

    ?The average person speaks 16,000 words per day. But what if women were limited to just 100??and it's not in Iran, or Arab countries, but in the US itself. That's the 5 Stars premise of ?Vox? But now I wish to limit some authors to just 100 pages per novel.. May be it's ...

    Ah damn. I had such high hopes for this one. The premise/hook is fantastic, and with the second season of The Handmaid's Tale starting at the end of this month it's going to be so easy for marketers to draw parallels to Atwood's classic feminist masterpiece. But Vox *is not* that book....

    Soooo, women of the USA... imagine that the government has decided that you are only allowed 100 words a day. That all the men around you can speak/read/sign ALL THE WORDS they want, but you get 100 in each 24 hour span. Just think about that for awhile. This book felt all too real...

    Maybe this is how it happened in Germany with the Nazis, in Bosnia, with the Serbs, in Rwanda with the Hutus. I?ve often wondered about that, how kids can turn into monsters, how they can learn that killing is right and oppression is just, how in one single generation the world can ...

    Okay sorry but this was just bad. The premise is really intriguing and I would love to read about it in a BETTER book. I expected a good dystopian set up that deals with sexism.. What I got is a weird thriller that KIND OF addressed that topic. I don't even really know how to e...

    Christina Dalcher?s ?Vox? is the latest novel to give us a fully inflated misogynist nightmare. The story melds one of Western culture?s oldest prejudices with the future?s slickest technology: In the America she imagines, every woman can say only 100 words a day. As a pre...

    Wow. This is a hard review to write. I have to separate what I felt about the subject matter from how I feel about the writing/plot development/characters/etc., and that is not an easy thing to do when all I really want to do is stand on my soapbox for a few minutes! But I will say,...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi dystopian eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . So I seem to be in the minority again. This book irked me. The premise is that a misogynistic bunch of males has taken over the gov...

    I have mixed emotions after reading this book. This is probably one of the hardest reviews I've ever had to write. It took me a couple days of thinking it over before I could figure out what I needed to say....and then the right words to say it. I wanted so badly to enjoy and reall...

    Get ready to read this one, sure to be all over social media this fall! As we can imagine, contention in government could lead to citizens? rights being taken away, and in Vox, author Christina Dalcher goes to the extreme with this concept and shows us how easy it is to change people...

    Wow. This is a hard review to write. I have to separate what I felt about the subject matter from how I feel about the writing/plot development/characters/etc., and that is not an easy thing to do when all I really want to do is stand on my soapbox for a few minutes! But I will say,...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi dystopian eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . So I seem to be in the minority again. This book irked me. The premise is that a misogynistic bunch of males has taken over the gov...

    I have mixed emotions after reading this book. This is probably one of the hardest reviews I've ever had to write. It took me a couple days of thinking it over before I could figure out what I needed to say....and then the right words to say it. I wanted so badly to enjoy and reall...

    Get ready to read this one, sure to be all over social media this fall! As we can imagine, contention in government could lead to citizens? rights being taken away, and in Vox, author Christina Dalcher goes to the extreme with this concept and shows us how easy it is to change people...

    These days my country consists of states united in hate. At its helm is a man-child. A bully consumed by power, lacking intellect, as well as being morally and ethically deficient. So while the premise of Vox is extreme it doesn?t seem far-fetched. The severe subjugation of women by ...

    Okay sorry but this was just bad. The premise is really intriguing and I would love to read about it in a BETTER book. I expected a good dystopian set up that deals with sexism.. What I got is a weird thriller that KIND OF addressed that topic. I don't even really know how to e...

    I have decided to add a disclaimer to my review. The review in it's entirely is below in the spoiler tag. Here are my reasons for the disclaimer: - I knew that this would be controversial as it touches on a hot button topic. But, responses have become uncomfortable to the point I cr...

    "Honestly, Jacko. You're getting hysterical about it." Her words flew at me like poisoned arrows. "Well, someone needs to be hysterical around here." I am absolutely blown away. My heart and soul are just dangling by a thread. Honestly, I have not been this angered (and wonde...

    NOW AVAILABLE!!! What do they study now, our girls? A bit of addition and subtraction, telling time, making change. Counting, of course. They would learn counting first. All the way up to one hundred. as a thought-piece, i would give this a high four stars, but as a novel, it...

    a quick google search will show that women speak an average of 20,000 words per day. so imagine if you were limited to only 100. pretty unfathomable thought, right? that is exactly why i love dystopian novels. they are the most effective at taking me outside of my bubble, placing me...

    4 thought-provoking and brave stars to Vox! I don?t usually read dystopian books, and to be honest, I?m not that familiar with the genre. Upon reading the premise of Vox, I knew it would have a place on my reading list because of its timeliness and the bravery of the author in t...

    THREE STARS According to my lazy Google search, the average woman speaks around 20,000 words/day. In this frightening precautionary tale, women are restricted to speaking less than 100 words a day. Overage? Painful electrical shocks will be dealt from the Fitbit style wrist counter ...

    3.5 The Scarlet letter for the near future, but instead of s Puritan society and the red letter A, we have a society where the Christian right has prevailed. Women, even babies are fitted with a leather wristband that limits the words spoken in a day to a hundred. The first time you go...

    This novel depicts a chilling dystopia, or as Mike Pence might call it: a visionary blue print for America. Women are limited to speaking only 100 words per day and ?immoral? behavior results in hard labor concentration camps. The author does a great job of setting up the world wit...

    With Vox by Christina Dalcher being compared heavily to Margaret Atwood?s The Handmaid?s Tale I decided that in order to do an accurate review I needed to push myself to actually read The Handmaid?s Tale all the way through before picking up this title. I know many have loved Atw...

    3.5** rounded up! "Be teachers of good things; teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands." "Woman has no call to the ballot-box, but she has a sphere of her own....
