Gewinnspiel: Auf zum Eisernen Thron nach Kroatien

Simply a great story, with a fascinating protagonist, sharply drawn supporting characters and an exciting, unpredictable plot. The Circle is funny in its skewering of Internet culture.

Holland obsessively tallies the reach of her Twitter-like Zings and enthuses about a benefit for needy children that raises not money but 2. The Circle's buildings are named for epochs, so at her first party Holland gets her wine from the Industrial Revolution.

The ideas behind "The Circle" are compelling and deeply contemporary. Holland is an everywoman, a twentysomething believer in Internet culture untroubled by the massive centralization and monetization of information, ubiquitous video surveillance and corporate invasions of privacy.

Compare that to A Hologram for the King , in which a middle-aged man thoughtfully but powerlessly observes America's economic decline, realizing that his efforts to participate in globalization led to his own obsolescence. The two books together are saying something foreboding about America's place in the world: We have traded making physical things for a glossy, meaningless online culture that leaves us vulnerable to those who see that information — in the form of data, video feeds, or our own consumer desires — is power.

We have met Big Brother, and he is us. And by the last pages, you may think twice before logging on again. Set in the not-so-distant future, the novel is part satire, part corporate thriller.

The social message of the novel is clear, but Eggers expertly weaves it into an elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st century. Eggers has a keen eye for context, and the great strength of The Circle lies in its observations about the way instant, asynchronous communication has damaged our personal relationships.

A speculative morality tale in the vein of George Orwell.

The Circle

We go on using the social media platforms that have been used against us; we post geo-tagged photos that could lead potential criminals straight to our private homes and our children's preschools, and we do all of this with full knowledge of the possible consequences.

We have closed our eyes and given our consent. Everyone else is doing it.

Stop liking and sharing and tweeting and texting! Stop it all! The world that the Circle is delivering to the online masses is very much our world. We need a legion of Dave Eggers in the world today, calling out the dangers. The Circle pushes his art even further.

It feels like the next horrific—but very plausible—small step for mankind.

The novel, set in the near future, is an engaging mix of social satire and cautionary tale. A sense of horror finally arrives near the end of the book, coming. The final scene is chilling. Set in the not-too-distant future, Eggers' story takes us inside a shiny-happy California-based media corporation called the Circle. Eggers creates for us a surprisingly contemporary world that seems strangely familiar to regular social media users — a world into which all of us excitedly join without much prompting.

This is a novel about the silence inside your head.

Always keeping the focus on Mae, Eggers brings up all the Big Brother issues of our time: In , the members of the Party are watched by Big Brother; in The Circle, it is the people who watch the government. Everyone else is doing it.

This is a novel about the silence inside your head. In , the members of the Party are watched by Big Brother; in The Circle, it is the people who watch the government. Perhaps our need for privacy will erode as technology continues to develop and the world continues to change. The pages are full of clever, plausible, unnerving ideas that I suspect are being developed right now. The book is also very funny.

The novel is a pro-privacy, antitech manifesto masquerading as a Dan Brown thriller.

There may come a day when we can look back at this novel with incredulity, but for now, the mirror it holds up is too chilling to LOL. One hopes that it will enjoy pride of place with those books in classrooms, as a reminder that surveillance and transparency were not always judged merely by what they might do for us. Eggers has produced the fable for our wired times.

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

But perhaps most chilling of all is his notion that our ultimate undoing could be something so petty as our desperate desire for affirmation.

Set in the near future, it examines the inner workings of the Circle, an internet company that is both spiritual and literal successor to Facebook, Google, Twitter and more, as seen through the eyes of Mae Holland, a new hire who starts in customer service.

Eggers presents a Swiftian scenario so absurd in its logic and compelling in its motives.
