The Circle is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, perfect-selling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the national ebook Award.
When Mae Holland is employed to work for the Circle, the arena’s strongest internet company, she feels she’s been given the chance of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ private emails, social media, banking, and buying with their common working device, resulting in one on-line id and a brand new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan place of job spaces, the towering glass eating amenities, the comfy dorms for many who spend nights at work, she is extremely joyful with the corporate’s modernity and process. There are parties that closing throughout the night, there are well-known musicians taking part in on the garden, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of uncommon fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by means of the CEO. Mae can’t believe her success, her great fortune to work for the most influential firm on the earth—at the same time as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a extraordinary come across with a colleague leaves her shaken, at the same time as her position on the Circle turns into increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions on memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the bounds of human data.
