A Book a Week – The Circle

The Circle was for book club. I remember when this book first came out and I read about it, and thought I had no interest in reading it. I am not a huge social network fan but I still couldn’t muster up enough excitement or paranoia to read this one. Even if Dave Eggers wrote it.

As it turned out, it was a quick and easy read. And it was so over-the-board unrealistic, in my opinion, that I didn’t find it dystopian or scary enough. Some parts rang true and sad, of course, but overall I just thought it was a semi-interesting story that fell flat by the end. It was too overdone.

Alas, if techie stories are your thing or you’re deeply scared of what social media means for our future, this is an interesting read.
