    Lacking a plot

    This was interesting enough to read and a thought provoking view into what the future could look like! Though, unfortunately, I struggled to really see where the story was going and it did vaguely come together quite rapidly at the end. With a slightly better plot this might have been more enjoyable: 'it was OK' sums this up well.

    Gripping

    One of the tragedy's of ebooks is that you no longer get to see what you fellow commuters are reading. I remember in 2010/11 when it seemed everyone was reading Steig Larson! I stumbled onto this book because a fellow commuter on London's District Line hadn't yet made the jump to online! I am grateful for that, as I doubt I would have otherwise come across such a wonderful yet disturbing book. Fast paced, with realistic characters, like social media you know them without knowing them. The Circle could be Facebook , Google or Microsoft, where the tech they develop becomes completely imbedded in our lives.....hasn't it already? It's a scary future that the Circle paints because everyone has secrets. Ironically, the biggest secret is just what Bailey and Stenton are planning. It makes you think, at what point do we become too connected?

    Good read!

    Page turner and a frightening look into a future that hopefully will never happen. I guess it is realistically possible from a technical point of view. I wonder if all key persons, like the protagonist in this book, will in reality never doubt the path they have chosen. In that sense a little over the top, but still a very good read!

    A good warning

    The story poses some good questions regarding what could really go wrong with the desruction of privacy and the total transparency that new technology could allow. It is scary. Lukily, the GAFAM are, I hope, much more respectful.

    Gripping and real

    This is a thrilling and suspenseful story which had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. S apocalytic but totally relatable and should be compulsory viewing for anyone that uses social media.
