    Thanks for your feedback!

    I find the story to be a little weak, however it was still interesting to read because the topic is relevant to current times. So I am actually a little on the fence trying to decide if I like it or not.

    The Circle

    I almost put this book down a couple of times but decided to persist. I felt the messages about society overtook the fiction and that's not what I was looking for.

    Modern-day 1984

    The Circle was a thoughtful and enjoyable extrapolation of what might happen if Orwell's 1984 were set slightly in the future, to a time when a web-based Google-esque superconglomorate was trying to demolish privacy for the people's own good (slogans akin to "War is Peace" abound, such as "Privacy is Theft"). Mae is likeable, if a little flat, and I had a growing sense of dread as I realized how far Mae and the Circle would go to complete their goals. A great book to make you think about how you portray yourself on the internet, and instill a little paranoia.

    Big Brother is (always) watching

    This was a great thriller for our times, especially if you've ever felt overwhelmed by the breakneck speed of technology or had concerns about how your privacy is used in the online world. Admittedly, it's a bit hard to suspend your disbelief for some of the story beats (Mae repeatedly completes a seemingly impossible amount of surveys, for example) but the suspense and excitement kept me hooked. You might never look at Google the same way.
