  1. Sarah Thomas

    VOX is a chilling dystopian novel in which the religious belt of America has taken over the country and elected into office a president and party who believes that the country will be better off by reverting back to 1950’s values (and then some) where women should only be allowed to look after House and home and become second class citizens to all men. In doing so all females have been fitted with devices that will send an electric shock through them if they speck for than 100 words in a day.
    I found it thought-provoking and alarming. It made me boil with anger when our main character, Jean, “discusses” things with her eldest son. How close are we to something like this happening?

    For me it is an interesting and intelligent novel. It touches on the effects of having no voice on a human being, on society and what growing up in that environment can have.

    The second part is a fast-paced, brilliant thriller with lots of action; is this character really who you think they are?

    I raced through this story and would highly recommend it goes straight to the top of your reading pile.
