This book is a technological thriller about a mega internet company and the powers they truly have. It tells the story of Mae, who gets a job at The Circle, an internet company with over 10,000 employees. She quickly gets pulled into the social and work aspects of the company which has the feel of its own world. I was a little wary of this book to start,but needless to say, I flew through this book. The Circle had scary similarities to some mega companies right now and predicted where life may go if they continue to grow.
One of my friends explained the book by saying that she was flipping the pages so fast she thought she was going to rip them out (and I am glad she didn't because she was borrowing my book!).
