Review

Publisher's description. Fast, thrilling and compulsively addictive, The Circle is Dave Eggers' bestselling novel about our obsession with the internet and where it may lead. When Mae Holland lands her dream job at the world's most powerful internet company, she has no idea what awaits behind the doors of The Circle... (Penguin)

A stunning work of terrifying plausability ... a worthy and entertaining read (Publisher's Weekly)

Eggers has set his style and pace to technothriller: the writing is brisk, spare and efficient ... it works (Time)

Prescient, important and enjoyable ... a deft modern synthesis of Swiftian wit with Orwellian prognostication' (Guardian)

The Circle is 'Brave New World' for our brave new world ... fast, witty and troubling (Washington Post)

An elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st Century (Vanity Fair)

Immensley readable and very timely (Metro)

A gripping and highly unsettling read (Sunday Times)

Unputdownable (Times)

Eggers's writing is so fluent, his ventriloquism of tech-world dialect so light, his denouement so enjoyably inevitable (Observer)

Tremendous novel ... inventive, big hearted and very funny. Prepare to be addicted (Daily Mail)

Compelling and deeply contemporary (L.A Times)

Eggers brilliantly depicts the Internet binges, torrents of information and endless loops of feedback that increasingly characterize modern life (Booklist)

From the Inside Flap

Fast, thrilling, compulsively addictive - The Circle is Dave Eggers' timely novel about our obsession with the internet. When Mae is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Run out of a sprawling California campus, the Circle links users' personal emails, social media, and finances with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of transparency. Mae can't believe her great fortune to work for them - even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public..."Tremendous. Inventive, big hearted and very funny. Prepare to be addicted". (Daily Mail). "Prescient, important and enjoyable ...a deft modern synthesis of Swiftian wit with Orwellian prognostication". (Guardian). "A gripping and highly unsettling read". (Sunday Times). Dave Eggers is the founder and editor of McSweeney's, an independent publishing house based in San Francisco. He is the author of seven previous books, including A Hologram for the King (finalist for the National Book Award 2012), Zeitoun (winner of the American Book Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize) and What is the What, which was a finalist for the 2006 National Book Critics Circle Award and won France's Prix Medicis.
