August 8, We can find a correct series here that, without being any wonder, it's watchable. Catalina Combs Black Girl Nerds.

June 26, The Good Doctor is a pleasant experience with some flaws. June 19, The Good Doctor has shown us what it means to push the boundaries.

Full Review Original Score: 3. November 14, The writers get credit for attempting a sensitive portrayal of a person who is not neurotypical - flashbacks to Shaun's sad childhood are touching, if simplistic.

Yet, even with this, he feels two-dimensional. Full Review Original Score: 2. Emily VanDerWerff Vox. Murphy's more rigid way of understanding the world drives much of what makes The Good Doctor stand out.

Corey Chichizola CinemaBlend. By including the business side of running a hospital, The Good Doctor can include moments of law and business drama, giving audiences a breather from the medical hoo-hah that comes with the genre.

Sensitively portrayed by Bates Motel star Freddie Highmore, the character is extraordinarily gifted but often underestimated by those around him.

Allison Keene Collider. Skip it; Freddie Highmore is too pure for this. Alan Sepinwall Uproxx. This is one of several new shows this fall that might have been better served foregoing a premise pilot altogether and just starting out with Shaun's second or third day at work, rather than his first.

James Poniewozik New York Times. November 13, While there may be different ways to be good and to express caring, The Good Doctor suggests, it is something worth aspiring to -- an idea that may especially appeal to viewers who have experienced health care as scary, impersonal and alienating.

Verne Gay Newsday. TGD is a sensitive, intelligent exploration of someone on the spectrum. Kristi Turnquist Oregonian.

November 9, Pilots aren't series. And after that overwrought beginning, The Good Doctor has gotten better. And it's not hard to see why so many viewers are responding.

November 8, The characters on The Good Doctor are actually just really good people. Why wouldn't you invite them into your home?

Stephen L. Carter Bloomberg News. I hold her no ill will and I think doing so would be un-Christian of me. View all comments. Ohh, this was bad. Terribly, terribly disappointing.

I expected a good dystopian set up that deals with sexism.. At least it pretended to. First of all, the "showdown" was way too fast and there was little to no build up at all.

It was unrealistic and everything was solved way too easily. I didn't even really understand what was going on most Ohh, this was bad.

I didn't even really understand what was going on most of the time because it was so quick and all over the place.

The characters were boring and completely flat. This definitely should've been a book that goes into depth with the feelings and thoughts of its characters, but it failed big time.

But what annoyed me the most was the more or less subtle sexism towards men. Hey, I totally understand that one would start to despise the other gender if it was the reason for why you're being oppressed and not allowed to talk or work.

But that wasn't the case here. It were more things like "he's not a real man because he wouldn't beat up someone for spitting on his car" or "All boys like to blow things up" Wtf?

Which is something they should do, because it's bullshit!! Double standards are really stupid. Please stop. How weird is that in a book with this topic?

You're getting hysterical about it. My heart and soul are just dangling by a thread. Honestly, I have not been this angered and wonderfully angered in a long, long time.

Think about what you need to do to stay free. Denial, deliberation and the decisive moment: three response stages to any impending disaster.

Rush through the first two and "Honestly, Jacko. Rush through the first two and act as soon as you can. That's how you hold out.

That's how you live. Jean McClellan, an American linguistic scientist and mother of four, saw all the signs - women representation decreasing in the government, the resurgence of the "pure" religion, the slow chipping away at female freedoms - yet she did nothing.

No goddamned idea. We're on a slippery slide to prehistory girls. Think about it Think about words like 'spousal permission' and 'paternal consent.

Then, she found herself without a voice at all. Courtesy of the "Pure" religious movement - all women were fitted with a little "bracelet" which functioned as a word counter.

Every day they received words and severe consequences followed every infraction. Jean, as linguistic specialist, knows better than anyone what will happen if a child is denied language or an adult is forced to stifle all forms of communication.

But without a voice for herself, how can she even begin? I read every last word in a single sitting.

If you thought the The Handmaid's Tale was great - you need to check out this modern upheaval. This is the kind of book where you literally feel the tension - my heart was pounding, my eyes blurred, I turned the pages so fast that I felt a slight breeze.

Oh the many shivers. With many, many thanks to Berkley Publishing and the Christina Dalcher for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Easily, I think, and push out of my chair. Words matter. If your ideal of womanhood tends toward the Stepford-ish , Vox will present an image of paradise.

For the rest of us, it offers a dark vision of a possible future in which the lines between religion of the extremist, fundamentalist sort, and government are not just blurred, but erased.

See Taliban, ISIS, or any of many Christian sects that insist that civil law should be based on the Bible God knows there are plenty of places in the USA where a large number of folks would be just fine with that, as long as it is the proper religion.

Well, probably not the majority of the women. A deranged leader had let power go to his head and decided to shake things up. From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish.

In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half-hour. Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check.

There are different lunatics in charge in Vox , but the restrictions are just as insane, if much less amusing. Females are allowed only one hundred words per day.

The official language of American women is silence? And they will have to wear wrist-band counters that keep track. Exceeding the daily quota results in a painful electrical shock.

Run off at the mouth and the punishment becomes deadly. Girls at school are given rewards for speaking the fewest words in a day.

She is as shocked as most are by the imposition of outrageous strictures on her, and on all females. Her husband, Patrick, is the science advisor to the president, surely a jokey position in a country where science is silenced and faith of a certain sort is given all the bullhorns.

But then Jean is approached by representatives of El Presidente. Her professional services are required. Jean negotiates a deal, and goes to work.

Complications ensue, not least is the presence on the research team of the incompetent rectum who stepped up to leadership when the women were kicked out, and someone from her past.

Will they be able to use their scientific super powers for the forces of good, or be bested by the forces of evil?

Image from MissMuslim. If millions of women marched in response to the election of Swamp Thing, I seriously doubt that a program like the one presented here would have been instituted as quickly as this one was, or at all.

Despite the excesses of our current administration, there are limits beyond which people actually would respond, and actively resist.

But the point of the novel is not, clearly, to present a real potential future, but to highlight the importance of speech, of language in personal and political freedom, particularly for women.

Image from Betanews. Schools in Vox are made to offer AP Religious Studies classes that not only crowd out class time for Biology and History, but omit the comparative element of the study of religions in favor of promoting the religious track favored by those in charge.

So, propaganda. This is hardly a huge leap from school systems that insist on teaching that lovely oxymoron, creation science, alongside actual, reality-based, testable science, and pretending equivalence.

Similar to the approach of some news providers who seem to think that balance consists of offering equal time to truth-tellers and liars. Call bullshit a rose often enough and weak-minded people will begin to enjoy the scent.

Fake news? We live in a NewSpeakian world, so looking at the power of language, or words and how they are used and controlled offers considerable insight into the non-science-fiction reality we currently inhabit.

It is also of note how those words and notions are so often internalized. It seems the norm, sadly, for those in power to want to silence those who object, whatever their gender.

Colin Kaepernick knows, and I remember well the cries of Vietnam war supporters who regarded opposition as treason.

America, love it or leave it! Image from Yomyomf. The religious nuts running this show incorporate anti-gay bias into their new world order as well, making what they consider aberrant behavior a criminal act.

The chastity movement in the book is based on real-world insanity as well. She adds that there is a modern version of the Cult of Domesticity active in the US right now; the True Woman movement, part of a larger religious campaign called Revive Our Hearts.

There are plenty more, but these are the ones I have read. She is a theoretical linguist, with a strong concern with how language affects development.

What would women become after a few generations of bearing the yoke of silence? Is it ok to train your daughters to become, essentially, pets that double as sexual vessels?

The story moves along at a nice pace, making this a pretty fast read. It is engaging and stress-inducing, in a good way. But I found the resolution even more unlikely than the underlying notion.

If tight plotting is your thing, you will probably be disappointed. But then this is not, IMHO, about the action-adventure element, as entertaining as that is.

It is a warning about the cost of silence, and how not speaking up now can shut you up later, to the detriment, not only of yourself, but of generations to come.

View all 65 comments. Jun 10, Tammy rated it it was amazing. 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.

The severe subjugation of women by the angry, white, extremist Christian patriarchy is portrayed at its most monstrous.

A counter worn by women allows them to speak when spoken to and then only minimally. Once the allotted one hundred words per day ar These days my country consists of states united in hate.

Once the allotted one hundred words per day are spent, negative reinforcement is administered to the offending female in the form of a painful shock.

Other than these few words, women are not allowed any other form of communication: no email, snail mail, books, pens, or internet access.

And, nonverbal communication is not permitted which is monitored by surveillance cameras. This dystopian novel deftly handles politics of all stripes; gender, sexual, domestic and, to a lesser degree, racial and international.

Gone are the days of inclusion, tolerance and attempts at harmony. Oh wait! View all 99 comments. Apr 13, karen rated it liked it Shelves: from-publisher-or-author.

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. View all 14 comments. An anti-women future you say? A future where the white man can have all the power he wants and the rest must, but must , comply or else?

Oh my God yes, sign me up for this shi 3. Even though Vox is a well-written and smart book, it was too outrageous and at times, it made me roll my eyes while reading it in public transport so hard that I thought they were going to roll back in my head and stay there forever.

I hated this sexist shit so much, but I still read the book. I was somehow waiting for something bomb to happen and everything to come back to at least a minimum of normal.

This is kind of a controversial book with a controversial topic and I will try to stay away from that as much as I can because I am not here to do politics or to play God.

I am here to pour on electronic paper my thoughts and feelings about the books I read and annoy the hell out of you with my long rant hehe.

Christina Dalcher created a not-so-hard-to-believe future, where the United States goes cuckoo and starts oppressing women as well as everyone who had a different point of view when it came to religion or sexuality.

Women in all the country wore some sort of torturing devices like bracelets on their wrists as well as young girls, no matter the age that only allowed them to speak one hundred words per day.

To be listened to. To be feared. I have nothing against men. I have nothing against church and religion. But I do have something against chronically sick maniacs who feel the need to share their twisted fantasies and fetishes with the world.

You cannot force people into submission endlessly. Fight against the system, fight against the purists and brain-washers, fight against her new status, fight against her own husband.

He complies. To stand for her. Someone who, like her, is not afraid to speak his mind. To fight for normalcy. Not approving of the whole having an affair kind of thing though.

I love the creepy medical path this whole book drives towards. I find medical stuff quite paralysing so this tickled my fascination. This book was terrifying.

And disturbing. And outrageous. But I truly appreciate its idea. Its very core. It was kind of a fascinating read for me. Gripping sometimes.

So, of course, I disliked it because of its very essence. But of course, I liked it because of that very same essence.

View all 11 comments. Aug 21, The Captain rated it did not like it Shelves: walk-the-plank. Ahoy there me mateys!

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 government and women have become second class citizens.

Restrictions include, but are not limited to- no jobs, no financial control, no access to books, no passports, and no real use of language.

It's the last limitation th Ahoy there me mateys! It's the last limitation that made me want to read this book.

The statistic in the blurb claims that the is that the average person currently speaks 16, words a day. In this book the woman can only speak words a day.

To enforce this quota, all women are equipped with sensors around their wrists. Go over the limit and ye get an electric shock.

And it isn't mild. With every misbehavior, the force and duration of the punishments only increase. The concepts behind limited women's speech were fascinating.

In particular the relationship between the main character, Jean, and her youngest child, a girl, was the most poignant part of the novel. The consequences for a generation of girls brought up without the skills of reading and the outlet of speaking were harrowing.

But unfortunately the expression of the novel's concepts and the impact of its message were completely filtered down by the awkward execution of this novel.

Some of the problems: - unlikable protagonist - Jean is supposed to be smart and intelligent. She holds a PhD and was about to make a major achievement in treating the problems of language malfunction in stroke patients.

And yet throughout the book she was whiny, unfocused, clueless, and meek. It made sense for the beginning of the novel but she never really became a strong force.

Subplots about animal testing that were unnecessary. Brand-new drugs working the first and only time on a human subject. Multiple characters important to Jean that happen to be conveniently in a cell and rescued at a critical moment.

No cameras or recording devices in any place that seems rational. I am extremely liberal and yet this book seemed to be a political soapbox for hatred of the current regime.

I feel it would have had more force if set in slightly more distant future. And yet it lambastes any woman who doesn't follow a certain type of political activism.

It doesn't even seem to want women to have individuality of their own. Fie on any woman who wants to be a stay-at-home mom.

Fie on any woman who doesn't attend political rallies and march the streets. Fie on any woman that is a Christian. I do believe that all people should vote.

But this seems to suggest if ye aren't a rabid fanatic about yer politics then ye are useless. I get that a passive approach to horrible behavior can allow that behavior to flourish.

Think the Nazis. But there are many different types of activism and legitimate lifestyles. For a book to be about women power, a man is needed to bring down the regime.

Then the main character runs to another country and doesn't even stay to help mitigate and direct the consequences of her actions.

She is basically a coward through and through. She is always being selfish and really never cared about the greater good.

It's been compared to the Handmaid's Tale. Skip this one and read that one instead. The Handmaid's Tale is a modern classic for a reason.

So lastly. Thank you Berkley Publishing Group! View all 25 comments. View all 13 comments. Oct 16, Felicia rated it it was ok. 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 potential and turned it into a Christian and male bashing rant of epic proportions full disclosure: I am not a Christian nor am I a man.

The plot revolves around a dystopian future where U. Jean McClellan is among these women. Jean is a perpetually indecisive victim of her own circumstances.

She hates her husband. She hates her son. There's really nothing relatable or sympathetic about her character.

I could go on and on about the lack of character development but more importantly is the utter lack of development of the plot itself. There is no lead up to, and even less explanation for, how women found themselves living this nightmare.

Other than a few references to a president that sounds strangely familiar, we're left with virtually no backstory. Overall this book is devoid of the tension and emotion that is mandatory for a dystopian book.

View all 44 comments. So much for the infallibility of Patrick. Well, I guess there are worse things than a wish for justice and an allergy to its counterpart, right?

At least to me it does. Other women. The ones who just wanna get out of the house and have some kind of identity. Does that make sense?

Sure, you might say that people did and still do a lot of wrong things in the name of religion and to use it as a tool in order to create a dystopian world is nothing new.

I heard voices that said Dalcher is dragging Christianity in the mud and I heard voices that said it was a well-developed plot device… As for me?

Honest answer? I read 3 dystopian books this year and all of them had a religious motive. Of course they were, imagine how lovely your life could be if your mother had no way to reprimand you.

Poor Jean. To me it feels like there went a lot of energy into explaining the circumstances and the way life felt like for the MC and the other women in the book, but there was hardly any effort put into explaining how the men lived.

What they did, if they were okay with their women being silenced. If they struggled with this change too.

Throughout the entire book we just get one side of the coin and I still ask myself the question: Why did they even decide that the words of women should be counted?

To make them docile and obedient? Is that really the only motive? I have no clue where Dalcher wanted to go with this book, what the government actually planned to do or where the plot was supposed to head and this left me even more confused.

What for?! Only women or men as well? Why take such drastic measures? Anders zu sein, macht manchmal den Unterschied. Mehr Themen und Infos.

The severe subjugation of women by the angry, white, extremist Christian patriarchy is portrayed at its most monstrous. A counter worn by women allows them to speak when spoken to and then only minimally.

Once the allotted one hundred words per day ar These days my country consists of states united in hate. Once the allotted one hundred words per day are spent, negative reinforcement is administered to the offending female in the form of a painful shock.

Other than these few words, women are not allowed any other form of communication: no email, snail mail, books, pens, or internet access. And, nonverbal communication is not permitted which is monitored by surveillance cameras.

This dystopian novel deftly handles politics of all stripes; gender, sexual, domestic and, to a lesser degree, racial and international.

Oh my God yes, sign me up for this shi 3. Even though Vox is a well-written and smart book, it was too outrageous and at times, it made me roll my eyes while reading it in public transport so hard that I thought they were going to roll back in my head and stay there forever.

I hated this sexist shit so much, but I still read the book. I was somehow waiting for something bomb to happen and everything to come back to at least a minimum of normal.

This is kind of a controversial book with a controversial topic and I will try to stay away from that as much as I can because I am not here to do politics or to play God.

I am here to pour on electronic paper my thoughts and feelings about the books I read and annoy the hell out of you with my long rant hehe. Christina Dalcher created a not-so-hard-to-believe future, where the United States goes cuckoo and starts oppressing women as well as everyone who had a different point of view when it came to religion or sexuality.

Women in all the country wore some sort of torturing devices like bracelets on their wrists as well as young girls, no matter the age that only allowed them to speak one hundred words per day.

To be listened to. To be feared. I have nothing against men. I have nothing against church and religion. But I do have something against chronically sick maniacs who feel the need to share their twisted fantasies and fetishes with the world.

You cannot force people into submission endlessly. Fight against the system, fight against the purists and brain-washers, fight against her new status, fight against her own husband.

He complies. To stand for her. Someone who, like her, is not afraid to speak his mind. To fight for normalcy. Not approving of the whole having an affair kind of thing though.

I love the creepy medical path this whole book drives towards. I find medical stuff quite paralysing so this tickled my fascination.

This book was terrifying. And disturbing. And outrageous. But I truly appreciate its idea. Its very core. It was kind of a fascinating read for me.

Gripping sometimes. So, of course, I disliked it because of its very essence. But of course, I liked it because of that very same essence.

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 government and women have become second class citizens.

Restrictions include, but are not limited to- no jobs, no financial control, no access to books, no passports, and no real use of language.

It's the last limitation th Ahoy there me mateys! It's the last limitation that made me want to read this book. The statistic in the blurb claims that the is that the average person currently speaks 16, words a day.

In this book the woman can only speak words a day. To enforce this quota, all women are equipped with sensors around their wrists.

Go over the limit and ye get an electric shock. And it isn't mild. With every misbehavior, the force and duration of the punishments only increase.

The concepts behind limited women's speech were fascinating. In particular the relationship between the main character, Jean, and her youngest child, a girl, was the most poignant part of the novel.

The consequences for a generation of girls brought up without the skills of reading and the outlet of speaking were harrowing.

But unfortunately the expression of the novel's concepts and the impact of its message were completely filtered down by the awkward execution of this novel.

Some of the problems: - unlikable protagonist - Jean is supposed to be smart and intelligent. She holds a PhD and was about to make a major achievement in treating the problems of language malfunction in stroke patients.

And yet throughout the book she was whiny, unfocused, clueless, and meek. It made sense for the beginning of the novel but she never really became a strong force.

Subplots about animal testing that were unnecessary. Brand-new drugs working the first and only time on a human subject.

Multiple characters important to Jean that happen to be conveniently in a cell and rescued at a critical moment.

No cameras or recording devices in any place that seems rational. I am extremely liberal and yet this book seemed to be a political soapbox for hatred of the current regime.

I feel it would have had more force if set in slightly more distant future. And yet it lambastes any woman who doesn't follow a certain type of political activism.

It doesn't even seem to want women to have individuality of their own. Fie on any woman who wants to be a stay-at-home mom. Fie on any woman who doesn't attend political rallies and march the streets.

Fie on any woman that is a Christian. I do believe that all people should vote. But this seems to suggest if ye aren't a rabid fanatic about yer politics then ye are useless.

I get that a passive approach to horrible behavior can allow that behavior to flourish. Think the Nazis. But there are many different types of activism and legitimate lifestyles.

For a book to be about women power, a man is needed to bring down the regime. Then the main character runs to another country and doesn't even stay to help mitigate and direct the consequences of her actions.

She is basically a coward through and through. She is always being selfish and really never cared about the greater good. It's been compared to the Handmaid's Tale.

Skip this one and read that one instead. The Handmaid's Tale is a modern classic for a reason. So lastly. Thank you Berkley Publishing Group!

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 potential and turned it into a Christian and male bashing rant of epic proportions full disclosure: I am not a Christian nor am I a man.

The plot revolves around a dystopian future where U. Jean McClellan is among these women. Jean is a perpetually indecisive victim of her own circumstances.

She hates her husband. She hates her son. There's really nothing relatable or sympathetic about her character. I could go on and on about the lack of character development but more importantly is the utter lack of development of the plot itself.

There is no lead up to, and even less explanation for, how women found themselves living this nightmare. Other than a few references to a president that sounds strangely familiar, we're left with virtually no backstory.

Overall this book is devoid of the tension and emotion that is mandatory for a dystopian book. View all 44 comments.

So much for the infallibility of Patrick. Well, I guess there are worse things than a wish for justice and an allergy to its counterpart, right? At least to me it does.

Other women. The ones who just wanna get out of the house and have some kind of identity. Does that make sense? Sure, you might say that people did and still do a lot of wrong things in the name of religion and to use it as a tool in order to create a dystopian world is nothing new.

I heard voices that said Dalcher is dragging Christianity in the mud and I heard voices that said it was a well-developed plot device… As for me?

Honest answer? I read 3 dystopian books this year and all of them had a religious motive. Of course they were, imagine how lovely your life could be if your mother had no way to reprimand you.

Poor Jean. To me it feels like there went a lot of energy into explaining the circumstances and the way life felt like for the MC and the other women in the book, but there was hardly any effort put into explaining how the men lived.

What they did, if they were okay with their women being silenced. If they struggled with this change too. Throughout the entire book we just get one side of the coin and I still ask myself the question: Why did they even decide that the words of women should be counted?

To make them docile and obedient? Is that really the only motive? I have no clue where Dalcher wanted to go with this book, what the government actually planned to do or where the plot was supposed to head and this left me even more confused.

What for?! Only women or men as well? Why take such drastic measures? Anyway, prepare for salty comments and venomous curses in my updates!

After the initial se This novel depicts a chilling dystopia, or as Mike Pence might call it: a visionary blue print for America.

After the initial setup, the story transitions more into a typical race against time thriller. The premise is fantastic, but the espionage was cheesy and not particularly well written.

Overall: what probably started as a symbolic anti-Trump rant turned into surprisingly effective allegorical fiction. I wish the author had spent more time on the final third of the book, though, because it left a lot to be desired.

In this frightening precautionary tale, women are restricted to speaking less than words a day. Painful electrical shocks will be dealt from the Fitbit style wrist counter you're wearing.

The premise is strong and all too real in this alternative reality where women's rights are slowly chipped away by a strong tide of religious fundamentalism until finally, we quite literally lose the language needed to speak up for ourselves.

After the Pure Movement takes hold in political offices nationwide, women lose their rights to hold jobs or bank accounts.

Girls are not allowed to study science in school. Females are effectively shut out of society by taking away our words.

What happens when the country's leading linguist happens to be a woman and is called out of her forced retirement by the President himself?

What does he want from Dr. Jean McClellan, a mother of four and our fearless narrator? Well, that my friends is the story. I desperately wanted to love this book.

I had almost too much hope that it would be more powerful or meaningful than it ultimately is. The execution of the story gets so bogged down with technical, boring details that the whole plot feels, ironically, mansplained.

Artemis left that same taste in my mouth. I really can't offer much explanation for it either. The good news: I seem to be in the minority and if you are intrigued by VOX , I would not dissuade you from going for it.

VOX is initially eye-opening, but for me, it just doesn't sustain the suspense or believability factor. VOX is scheduled to hit the shelves on August 21, Thanks to NetGalley for my early copy.

Books are locked up, only able to be accessed by men. No jobs, home in their new responsibility, duties of a wife and mother. The LGBT community fares even worse.

Can she take advantage, make a difference? Well, that is the story, a quick moving one I was fascinated with. History has proven that with the wrong people in charge, anything and everything can happen.

If you have not heard already, Vox is set in the United States at a time when a new president has been elected, and a mandate has been declared by the government: females may only speak words a day.

If they go over their allotment, they will receive an electric shock from a band installed on the arm. In a place founded on freedom, women and girls no longer have theirs.

Since women can no longer talk, they can no longer work. Girls are only taught math in school, and reading and writing is for boys only.

The ramifications of this are overarching, and the author does an impeccable job delineating it all.

The main character, Dr. Jean McClellan, is a married mother of four children; however, only one of her children is a girl.

How far will Jean go to demand a voice for her and her daughter? Vox has a strong start. The writing is flawless, and the set-up of the premise feels completely authentic.

I was anxious at times wondering if something like could actually happen. The pacing was stronger in the first two-thirds, but I was invested in what was happening, terrifying as it was, so that did not keep me from reading on.

The ending was completely satisfying. I could see this as a movie, and I think it is a wonderful choice for book club discussions.

Now that I know more about what comprises a dystopian novel, Vox checks all the boxes. Thank you to Berkley for the physical ARC.

This is what has happened to America after an all-right christian fundamentalist group has taken over. Under the influence of a "pure" movement, women are fitted with "bracelets" that count how many words they speak in a day.

Women are allowed a maximum of words a day and are given severe consequences if they speak over this. They are not allowed to read, or to write or to sign.

This is a society where women are completely stripped of their rights to work, to speak out, and to their own autonomy.

In addition, women who 'fornicate' with men outside of marriage and engage in pre-marital relations are first punished publicly These poor women are then sent to convents for hard labour and have their "bracelets" at zero words a day Dr Jean McClellan is a witness to all of this and experiences the harsh changes to society.

She herself, as an expert in neuro-linguistics, knows the importance of language in the development of children's brains.

She witnesses how the "pure" movement was slowly introduced into schools, changing the way young people think and behave; she witnesses how her daughter barely speaks anymore in fear of the consequences.

She realises this needs to change, but without a voice, where can she begin? This book teaches the importance of using your voice, women's representation in government and society needing to be noticed, the need for equality across the board, otherwise, if voices aren't used, change can hardly happen.

This book offers a stark reality of what might happen without women's voices, without protest or discussion, or without those protesting on women's behalf The frightening part is how a society is easily brain washed into thinking the "pure" movement is the only truth and there can be no resistance or critique, something Dr Jean McClellan faces when she's afraid her own son might report her.

This novel was a completely compelling and unputdownable novel! It is disturbing and an uncomfortable read and will leave you thinking: What if?

It also questions the reader to evaluate themselves as to how they use their own voice I'm giving this 3. Also, while I really enjoyed the very scientific parts of the novel I've done modules on neuroscience, language and cognitive psychology so it was easy for me to follow and relish in this re-learning experience I can understand why this aspect may not be appealing to others as some parts were very science heavy.

If we must learn, let us ask our husbands in the closeness of the home, for it is shameful that a woman question God-ordained male leadership.

The plot of Vox is simple. Who are trapped in America stripped of their jobs, their personal finances and their words.

Once at the forefront of her field and on the verge of finding a cure for disease of the brain, she is now reduced to being confined within the four walls of her home, counting her words for the day and making dinner.

You need to be taught a lesson. It was as if Dalcher started out with a lofty idea but could not sustain it and, instead, resorted the love affairs and gorillas yes, gorillas to tell the story instead.

Lackluster is a more accurate one. The premise was enticing, the title is arresting, and the cover art is just enough — minimalist in a way that highlights the words snatched from these women.

There was an unexpected plot twist surrounding one of Dr. What I appreciated most about this novel were those few moments where Dalcher snuck in the truly disturbing and uncomfortable, mostly through moments between Jean and her six-year-old daughter, Sonia.

And our little Sonia lived up to that duty in several satisfying moments in Vox. The ending is a jumbled hot mess, a series of unlikely though convenient events.

I hate quickly summed-up bow-tie endings that feel rushed, like a six-year-old hurrying to tell mommy all about their day.

To me, they are the ultimate cop-out and proof pudding of lack of true skill and finesse as a writer. The Goodreads description of this book made me think Vox would take more time to explore and lay out the events around the breakdown of American society to the point that women become voxes.

For the most part, all of the deterioration of American society has already happened at the start of the book though we do get snippy interior commentary on it from Jean , and we follow her around watching her days as she copes with it.
