I finished reading The Circle by Dave Eggers. There is a movie based on the book which I am planning on watching Monday. It’s a great book, but it does have a sorta cliffhanger ending. It’s also scary.
The Circle is about a girl named Mae. She gets a dream job at a technology company called The Circle. The Circle has tools where you can combine all your passwords, bank accounts into one system. Mae’s best friend, Annie, gets her the job. She ends up loving the job which is answering customers questions. The company has a point system which she ends up getting obsessed with. Mae meets a mystery man who she falls for. Annie tells her he could be a spy. The Circle grows bigger as a company with putting cameras in the world and getting politicians go transparent. Mae’s ex-boyfriend, her parents, and the mystery man tells her that the company needs to stopping growing, but she doesn’t listen to them. The mystery man turns out to be the founder of the company. Mae even pitches an idea to make everyone vote through The Circle’s tools. Annie ends up in a coma at the end, and Mae thinks up another pitch of getting inside everyone’s thoughts.
I can’t wait to see the movie. Now I’m listening to Apollyon by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins which I’m going to finish listening to on Saturday.
