MY VERDICT? With a nod to The Handmaid’s Tale, Christina Dalcher creates a dystopian world of voiceless women which is all the more chilling for its complete plausibility. Loved it. 5*.
In a world where women are silenced, would you speak up?
Greetings, to all Pure Women.
You should all be fitted with your new wrist counters. A symbol of your purity and devotion to your family. Life is simpler now. Just 100 words a day.
Your role is in the house. Your husband takes care of everything else.
Instead, you should focus on values of modesty, submission, humility and purity. Love, honour and most importantly, obey. You know the rules. Just one word over 100 and your wrist counter will send 1,000 volts through your body. Choose your words carefully.
You have the right to remain silent.
