“Jean McClellan spends her time in almost complete silence, limited to just one hundred words a day. Any more, and a thousand volts of electricity will course through her veins.

Now the new government is in power, everything has changed. But only if you’re a woman.

Almost overnight, bank accounts are frozen, passports are taken away and seventy million women lose their jobs. Even more terrifyingly, young girls are no longer taught to read or write.”

Vox is the debut novel by Christina Dalcher and a great book to read if you enjoyed Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

If you’d prefer a book with an Australian flavour The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood is a compelling read.
