Synopsis: Speth has been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt, and can’t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she’s unable to afford. But when Speth’s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family’s crippling debt, she can’t express her shock and dismay. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again in protest at the unjust rules of the land. Speth’s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family and the entire city around them.Review:
What if you had to pay for every word you spoke? What if silence was your biggest weapon?
This book is just brilliant. I absolutely love the synopsis right from the start – the world these days is definitely run by money, so why not go one step further and pay for people to talk. It’s a simple idea that is executed perfectly.
I loved Speth, and her method of protest and the anger she harbors inside. After the events near the start of the book I felt so in touch and empathetic with her and everything she is going through. I also really loved how we saw her develop throughout the entire book.
The writing style itself was done so well, and I loved how it included the prices of some words being used within the chapters. It added a depth I never imagined, and really captivated me. It left me happy, sad, emotional and just completely in awe.
This is the book of the future. It is written with such talent, and has such a unique yet realistic story that could easily come true. It is brilliant from the first page until the last, and I am extremely glad I managed to read it!
