Bookshelf: The Circle by Dave Eggers

The Circle is one of the biggest and world’s most powerful internet companies. It links users’ social media accounts, personal emails, banking, etc. to their universal system. The aim is to create one digital identity and a more transparent world. So when Mae Holland gets hired by Circle, she is ecstatic. The company has top-class amenities, fabulous employee schemes and wonderful colleagues. However, the more and more Mae gets accustomed to her life at Circle, the more distant her outside world becomes. And, when the company makes her a part of their new product, she soon realises the place is not what it seems. Also, at times, it’s good to be off the grid and then online all the time. Full of drama, suspense and twists, this one is a slow yet intriguing read. The plot is too relatable for millennials and Gen Z.
