Synopsis: 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. For herself, her daughter, and for every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice. This is only the beginning…
[100 WORD LIMIT REACHED]Review:
They say your days are numbered…but what if your words were too? The thought provoking and thrilling debut of the year is here, and is definitely one you won’t want to miss out on.
This book completely blew me away. I didn’t really know much about it before I went into it, but that worked so well for me. I was honestly gripped from the first page, and it was all I could think about every time I put it down.
The story was not only so unique and well written, but also extremely terrifying. As I was reading I kept thinking about what it would be like to only have 100 words each day, and the thoughts were truly intimidating.
The world was built so thoroughly and each character developed in the best way to create such tense story. I loved Jean so much and the way she was determined to create a better world for her daughter was beautiful.
Her relationship with Patrick was written so well, and really kept me on my toes. I felt for Jean as she had to deal with Patrick and Stephen in particular, it was so hard to see how the women were being treated and hit me hard in places.
The pacing was brilliant, and every character worked perfectly together to help build this uniquely thought up concept.
The ending was done so well. There was so much that happened, and my emotions were just flying everywhere. I felt so satisfed when I finished it, and can’t wait to read another book by Christina.
This is a debut that you need to watch out for; with it’s wonderful writing style, it’s deadly concept and brilliant world building – this is truly the book of 2018.
