Book Recommendation: The Circle

The Circle is the single most prophetic book you will read all year.

In it, a woman is employed by a Google-style tech company and begins to discover how social media reshapes life and even human identity.

It sounds like it will be preachy or obvious. It is actually fresh and surprising. As you read it you may even discover that it is describing aspects of your own life.

Eggers is perhaps a bit overly-cynical towards social media. But sometimes exaggeration and hyperbole reveal more truth than pinpoint accuracy.

Read it and look to see if you find yourself described in its pages.
