    Review quote
    A stunning work of terrifying plausability ... a worthy and entertaining read Publisher's Weekly Eggers has set his style and pace to technothriller: the writing is brisk, spare and efficient ... it works Time Prescient, important and enjoyable ... a deft modern synthesis of Swiftian wit with Orwellian prognostication' Guardian The Circle is 'Brave New World' for our brave new world ... fast, witty and troubling Washington Post An elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st Century Vanity Fair Immensley readable and very timely Metro A gripping and highly unsettling read Sunday Times Unputdownable Times Eggers's writing is so fluent, his ventriloquism of tech-world dialect so light, his denouement so enjoyably inevitable Observer Tremendous novel ... inventive, big hearted and very funny. Prepare to be addicted Daily Mail Compelling and deeply contemporary L.A Times Eggers brilliantly depicts the Internet binges, torrents of information and endless loops of feedback that increasingly characterize modern life Booklist
