The Circle by Dave Eggers

Dave Eggers

Dave Eggers

A wonderful read, pacy as a thriller and one to make any reader pause and reconsider the digital world.

Reading as a satire on the nature of the ‘free’ online services so many of us use every day, this had me totally hooked. It pivots on the concepts of privacy, public versus private provision of state functions, opt-in social media and how hard it is to resist once a critical mass forms.

Essentially, if you’ve ever looked at Facebook and wondered ‘Is this a good idea?’ or typed a search into Google and worried about how much Google know about you and what they do with that data – this is the book for you. An ultimately light-hearted view of a capitalist data apocalypse!
