Jean McClellan è diventata una donna di poche parole. Ma non per sua scelta. Può pronunciarne solo cento al giorno, non una di più. Anche sua figlia di sei anni porta il braccialetto conta parole, e le è proibito imparare a leggere e a scrivere.
Perché, con il nuovo governo al potere, in America è cambiato tutto.
Jean è solo una dei milioni di donne che, oltre alla voce, hanno dovuto rinunciare al passaporto, al conto in banca, al lavoro. Ma è l’unica che ora ha la possibilità di ribellarsi.
Per se stessa, per sua figlia, per tutte le donne.
[limite di 100 parole raggiunto]
OGNI GIORNO PRONUNCIAMO IN MEDIA 16.000 PAROLE
PAROLE CHE USIAMO PER LAVORARE
PER CHIACCHIERARE CON GLI AMICI
PER ESPRIMERE LA NOSTRA OPINIONE
MA, SE NON FACCIAMO SENTIRE LA NOSTRA VOCE,
CI RIMARRÀ SOLO IL SILENZIO…

Ohh, this was bad. Terribly, terribly disappointing. The premise is incredibly 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. At least it pretended to. First Leggi tutto
"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 wonderfully anger
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 change on its
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.

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 the angry, white Leggi tutto

3.45/5 ⭐ Full review on my Blog: The Dacian She-Wolf 🐺 “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” I have a developed sense or rightfulness so when there is something that steps on the basic laws of universal right I grow a pair of horns and some sharp claws an Leggi tutto
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 government and women have Leggi tutto
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 in an unfamiliar Leggi tutto
