The Circle

By Dave Eggers

Previously an employee in her small hometown’s gas and energy utility company, Mae Holland can hardly believe she’s been hired by the world’s most influential and powerful internet company – The Circle. 

The Circle’s extensive California campus – complete with a cafeteria, a picnic area, tennis and volleyball courts, a gym and studios galore – is a far cry from the utility company’s “tragic block of cement” building. (Not to mention the all-night parties and casual performances on the lawn by famous musicians…) 

Mae immerses herself in the Circle’s culture and becomes increasingly distant from her life at home. The story takes a dark turn as Mae ingratiates herself with the company’s leaders – and starts to see what the whole thing is really about.

Perfect for: 

  • Those looking for a book that features a Google-esque setting.
  • An entertaining yet unsettling satirical take on the digital age.
  • Lovers of dystopian, techie fiction.
