The Circle by Dave Eggers
The Circle

Susan Bradley, December 10, 2013

Orwell got some things wrong big government is not big brother it is your employer. Mae(the protagonist and the victim)could be your daughter in today's competitive world where to get ahead you need a connection to get the job you want. Where in order to keep the perfect job what is required of you no matter what the consequences. Where with cult-like precision the employer becomes the driving force dictating every thought through social media. Dave Eggers has changed my views on social media through this book.
