The Circle

“A stunning work of terrifying plausibility, a cautionary tale of subversive power in the digital age suavely packaged as a Silicon Valley social satire.  Set in the near future, it examines the inner workings of the Circle, an internet company that is both spiritual and literal successor to Facebook, Google, Twitter and more, as seen through the eyes of Mae Holland, a new hire who starts in customer service…Eggers presents a Swiftian scenario so absurd in its logic and compelling in its motives…sneaking up on the reader before delivering its warnings of the future, a worthy and entertaining read.”-—Publishers Weekly, starred review
