Great idea...in particular as it forebodes what Facebook is doing as I write. Too many gaps in the story. Still I would recommend it if you have a Facebook account.
I did not like the characters, I certainly did not like the ending. The narrator was great but I think it should have been a woman reading since the main character was a female.
Great book! Great Narrator
Narrator was good. Should have been a woman reading it though. I hate the ending of the book. hate hate hate it.
Definitely good perspective of how many Millennials way of thinking is, unfortunately. Scary concept but interested in watching the cinema version with Tom Hanks.
The Circle is a not a book to read if you are looking for resolution. It will get you excited, hopeful, full of expectation and leave you with meh, all by design. I love how author Dave Eggers manipulates the main character, Mae like the evil genius he his. If you've seen the movie, keep in mind that the movie was only based on the book. I highly recommend the book.
Enjoyed the book but I think the narrator should've been a woman reading it.
Excellent narration, like an actor using different voices, accents etc. It kept the book interesting and enjoyable. The story-line is very contemporary and will probably be relevant for the next couple of decades even though many of the details will seem dated in a few years.
If you are into tech and excited about what it will bring for the future you will enjoy this book, but if you don't have a Facebook account you will probably be mostly confused and bored.
Contrary to some others, I liked the ending. It wasn't a 'happy' ending, per se, but I found it plausible and satisfying.
The sexual encounters were a bit annoying, since they felt irrelevant to the general story, but I guess they serve a purpose as a depiction of the characters' humanity.
My biggest complaint is that the sound quality was lacking and not up to the standard I am accustomed to.
Did not enjoy the book. The characters were not likable, the story obvious, and the narrative droned on. Would not recommend. Narration was excellent however.
I enjoyed reading this book. The topic is timely. However, the ending was a real letdown. Couldn't believe after all the hours listening there was literally no resolution in the storyline. Is there a sequel in the works? Way too many loose ends for me!
While I too enjoyed the narration and the story sounds like something I will read about in next weeks papers. I really was disappointed in the ending. Probably won't see the movie for that very fact.
I found the characters unlikeable, the story predictable and boring. Read more like a young adult novel. While I think the narrator did a good job, a female should have read the book seeing how the protagonist is a woman. Overall I was disappointed - sorry!
Okay the very ending I hated! Gah! But I understood. I could not put this down and the story has lingered with me as I took breaks from listening. The narrator is excellent, I agree, and the book is very current and really scary! I'm convinced it's already happening :-/ Why does the narrator's rating not show? It should be more transparent :^) JUST KIDDING.
Very interesting book, and the Narrator was excellent, I recommend this for every one.
I was intrigued by the storey....but did not enjoy the end. I dont know if I could recommend to pay for this book...lib
rary if you must! but it did make you think....
This book, which chronicles the rise of a young entry-level customer service agent at a Google-type company was a little too close to reality for comfort. A compelling look at how we are all getting sucked into the 'transparent' life in which everyone seems to feel an obligation to share everything, all the time.
