A stunning work of terrifying plausability ... a worthy and entertaining read (Publisher's Weekly)

Eggers has set his style and pace to technothriller: the writing is brisk, spare and efficient ... it works (Time)

Prescient, important and enjoyable ... a deft modern synthesis of Swiftian wit with Orwellian prognostication' (Guardian)

The Circle is 'Brave New World' for our brave new world ... fast, witty and troubling (Washington Post)

An elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st Century (Vanity Fair)

A gripping and highly unsettling read (Sunday Times)

Unputdownable (Times)

Eggers's writing is so fluent, his ventriloquism of tech-world dialect so light, his denouement so enjoyably inevitable (Observer)

From the Back Cover:

'The Circle is 'Brave New World' for our brave new world. Fast, witty and troubling' Washington Post

'No question what should be the book of the year' Simon Jenkins, Evening Standard, Books of the Year

'A must-read' Blake Morrison, Guardian, Books of the Year

The Circle runs everything - all your internet activity in one handy, safe and visible place. No wonder it is now the world's most powerful and influential company. So when Mae Holland lands a job at its glittering California campus, she knows she's made it. But the more her ideals and ambitions become aligned with those of the Circle, the closer she comes to discovering a sinister truth at the heart of an organisation seeking to remake the world in its image . . .

'The most-on-the-money satirical commentary on the early internet age. Full of clever, plausible, unnerving ideas' Guardian

'One of our fiercest and most compelling writers. A gripping and highly unsettling read. It paints a horrifying picture, in minute detail, of a future we'll be lucky to avoid' Sunday Times

'An ingenious thriller' Observer, Books of the Year

'Inventive, big-hearted and very funny. Prepare to be addicted' Daily Mail
