Review and Summary of the Dystopian Novel The Circle

***Warning Spoilers Below This Point***

Mae Holland is the main lead of this story who graduates as a tech specialist and gets an opportunity to work in the famous internet company “The Circle” which is owned by three masterminds named Stenton, Eamon Bailey and Ty Gospodinov who are a ruthless businessman. Also, a likeable public figurehead and a reclusive genius inventor.

She is overwhelmed to be a part of this company and subsequently, she gradually gains experience. She also grasps more about this organisation and its buildings. Her visit to the California Campus opens up her eyes about how beautiful and out of the ordinary the place is. This makes it almost an unreal world environment.

But as she progresses in her career, she faces hatred and conspiracies against her. Later she catches sight of the bitter reality which is how the privacy and security of a common person get breached.

Final Say on the Dystopian Novel The Circle

I personally decided to give this story by Dave Eggers an 8 out of 10  because it raised questions regarding privacy, security and ethical behaviour. In this novel, he displayed the determination of one new graduate who experiences difficulties to face challenges in her professional career. This novel offers some great examples of some serious concerns in the workplace. Will, I read this novel again? Yes, because of the interesting but informative writing style it presents.
