Carries the potential to change how the world views its addicted, compliant thrall to all things digital. If you work in Silicon Valley, or just care about what goes on there, you need to pay attention. Eggers appears to run on pure adrenaline, and has as many ideas pouring out of him as the entrepreneurs pitching their inventions in The Circle. Eggers treats his material with admirable inventiveness and gusto. Using his fluent prose and instinctive storytelling gifts, Mr. As the artist and computer scientist Jaron Lanier has done in several groundbreaking nonfiction books, Mr. The adventures of Mr.
Compare that to A Hologram for the King , in which a middle-aged man thoughtfully but powerlessly observes America's economic decline, realizing that his efforts to participate in globalization led to his own obsolescence. The two books together are saying something foreboding about America's place in the world: We have traded making physical things for a glossy, meaningless online culture that leaves us vulnerable to those who see that information — in the form of data, video feeds, or our own consumer desires — is power.
We have met Big Brother, and he is us. And by the last pages, you may think twice before logging on again. Set in the not-so-distant future, the novel is part satire, part corporate thriller. The social message of the novel is clear, but Eggers expertly weaves it into an elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st century.
Eggers has a keen eye for context, and the great strength of The Circle lies in its observations about the way instant, asynchronous communication has damaged our personal relationships. A speculative morality tale in the vein of George Orwell. We go on using the social media platforms that have been used against us; we post geo-tagged photos that could lead potential criminals straight to our private homes and our children's preschools, and we do all of this with full knowledge of the possible consequences.
We have closed our eyes and given our consent. Everyone else is doing it. Stop liking and sharing and tweeting and texting! Stop it all! The world that the Circle is delivering to the online masses is very much our world.
We need a legion of Dave Eggers in the world today, calling out the dangers. The Circle pushes his art even further. It feels like the next horrific—but very plausible—small step for mankind. The novel, set in the near future, is an engaging mix of social satire and cautionary tale. A sense of horror finally arrives near the end of the book, coming. The final scene is chilling. Set in the not-too-distant future, Eggers' story takes us inside a shiny-happy California-based media corporation called the Circle.
Eggers creates for us a surprisingly contemporary world that seems strangely familiar to regular social media users — a world into which all of us excitedly join without much prompting. This is a novel about the silence inside your head. Always keeping the focus on Mae, Eggers brings up all the Big Brother issues of our time: In , the members of the Party are watched by Big Brother; in The Circle, it is the people who watch the government.
Perhaps our need for privacy will erode as technology continues to develop and the world continues to change. The pages are full of clever, plausible, unnerving ideas that I suspect are being developed right now. The book is also very funny. The novel is a pro-privacy, antitech manifesto masquerading as a Dan Brown thriller. There may come a day when we can look back at this novel with incredulity, but for now, the mirror it holds up is too chilling to LOL.
One hopes that it will enjoy pride of place with those books in classrooms, as a reminder that surveillance and transparency were not always judged merely by what they might do for us. John Grisham.

Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. I'm not sure if the message this story is trying to convey even translates to anyone under Cell phones were non existent and it was easy to be unreachable.
There had to be a certain amount of trust between people since there was no way to ever know what anyone was doing once they were no longer with you. The thought of being searchable and discoverable to my generation is terrifying-as much as people like me crave connection, we also want boundaries and the ability to opt out and reclaim our privacy and individuality-our free will as we choose.
The Circle is terrifying but not because it question how far we could go but because the young people of today think the same way the book's characters do: Well written and worth the time but the target audiance won't get it. Disturbing, fascinating, and a necessary challenge to everyone in the digital age.
I really enjoyed this book. I have recommended it to all of my friends. I thought the story was compelling and I couldn't put it down.
Hm... Are You a Human?
Story on April 21, Awesome story with incredible similarity to what is happening right now. The concept is very real and very scary. The execution of the book was unnecessarily long and drawn out and then ended abruptly like someone told the author to wrap it up already. I struggled to finish and then was disappointed.
