A bestselling dystopian novel that tackles surveillance, privacy and the frightening intrusions of technology in our lives. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Swimming Lessons. Claire Fuller.
A fun and inventive read. Simply a great story, with a fascinating protagonist, sharply drawn supporting characters and an exciting, unpredictable plot. The Circle is funny in its skewering of Internet culture.
Holland obsessively tallies the reach of her Twitter-like Zings and enthuses about a benefit for needy children that raises not money but 2. The Circle's buildings are named for epochs, so at her first party Holland gets her wine from the Industrial Revolution.
The ideas behind "The Circle" are compelling and deeply contemporary. Holland is an everywoman, a twentysomething believer in Internet culture untroubled by the massive centralization and monetization of information, ubiquitous video surveillance and corporate invasions of privacy. 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: Embed Size px.
