The Circle

The Circle is by Dave Eggers. OMG!! You must read this book!  This is Orwell, Huxley, Bradbury, and Rand brought into the 21st century. Mae Holland is thrilled when she is hired to work for The Circle, the world's largest internet company. The Circle links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and supposedly the boon of transparency. However, as The Circle and its new technological advances impinge on personal privacy and freedom, Mae is confronted with a choice. As a teacher, I look at several hundred Mae's every day. This could very well be our future, and we're well on the way. A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended Read.
