activist Dave Eggers neither suffers fools gladly nor treads lightly With his signature mix of intelligence and highly literate snark, he dives headlong into contemporary crises Hurricane Katrina, the Sudanese civil war through the lens of a single character whose perspective we get to know intimately In his new novel, Eggers tackles a modern problem that doesn t always seem like one our near constant hunger for communication When Mae Holland takes a job at the Circle, a tech giant with a utopian culture and cultlike following Eggers didn t call it Schmoogle, but may as well have , she quickly loses sight of her friends, family, and sense of self in favor of professional success and social acceptance As her Circle star rises, Mae succumbs to the corporate code of full disclosure, eventually agreeing to go transparent and let the public watch and comment on her every move Privacy is theft, decrees the company motto Secrets are lies It s not subtle, but neither were Harrison Bergeron and 1984, and in its best moments The Circle is equally terrifying Let s just hope it s not prescient Mia LipmanStarred Review Most of us imagine totalitarianism as something imposed upon usbut what if were complicit in our own oppression Thats the scenario in Eggers ambitious, terrifying, and eerily plausible new novel When Mae gets a job at the Circle, a Bay Area tech company thats cornered the world market on social media and e commerce, shes elated, and not just because of the platinum health care package The gleaming campus is a wonder, and it seems as though there isnt anything the company cant do and wont try But she soon learns that participation in social media is mandatory, not voluntary, and that could soon apply to the general population as well For a monopoly, its a short step from sharing to surveillance, to a world without privacy This isnt a perfect bookthe good guys lecture true believer Mae, and a key metaphor is laboriously explainedbut its brave and important and will draw comparisons to Brave New World and 1984 Eggers brilliantly depicts the Internet binges, torrents of information, and endless loops of feedback that increasingly characterize modern life But perhaps most chilling of all is his notion that our ultimate undoing could be something so petty as our desperate desire for affirmation HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY Eggers
