Not great literature and the characters are not very deep but a very contemporary topic that shows how easily people are sucked into the cult of a technology that makes everything easier and more transparent. How transparent do you want to be though? I was expecting more critisism of this path that we have already embarked on. But that happens only at the sidelines.

REVIEW:-"A very clever satirical look into a very scary vision of the future of the internet and the world as a whole. Mae gets quickly sucked into her new job at the Circle, sponsored by her close friend Annie. As she climbs through the hierarchy and gets more responsibility the Circle quickly takes over her life and family and takes away her privacy and free time. All this without her seemingly having time to realise it and the effect it's having on her. I really enjoyed the story which was compelling and made me think at lot. It even made me abandon my own phone for an hour or two here and there lest I follow suit inadvertently! The story got more alarming as it went along and I was quite surprised by the ending as I was expecting a different conclusion. It was a totally scary idea hinting at wanting to have access even to the thoughts of people in The Circle which would include if you became unconscious for any reason. I know from personal experience that this could be shockingly terrifying .
I would definitely look for more titles by this author."

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.
I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.
When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.
