The Circle

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dave Eggers

Narrated By: Dion Graham

Date: October 2013

Duration: 13 hours 43 minutes


A bestselling dystopian novel that tackles surveillance, privacy and the frightening intrusions of technology in our lives—a “compulsively readable parable for the 21st century” (Vanity Fair). 

When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. 

As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. 

Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. 

What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

    I did not like the characters, I certainly did not like the ending. The narrator was great but I think it should have been a woman reading since the main character was a female.

    Narrator was good. Should have been a woman reading it though. I hate the ending of the book. hate hate hate it.

    Definitely good perspective of how many Millennials way of thinking is, unfortunately. Scary concept but interested in watching the cinema version with Tom Hanks.

    The Circle is a not a book to read if you are looking for resolution. It will get you excited, hopeful, full of expectation and leave you with meh, all by design. I love how author Dave Eggers manipulates the main character, Mae like the evil genius he his. If you've seen the movie, keep in mind that the movie was only based on the book. I highly recommend the book.

    Enjoyed the book but I think the narrator should've been a woman reading it.

    Excellent narration, like an actor using different voices, accents etc. It kept the book interesting and enjoyable. The story-line is very contemporary and will probably be relevant for the next couple of decades even though many of the details will seem dated in a few years. If you are into tech and excited about what it will bring for the future you will enjoy this book, but if you don't have a Facebook account you will probably be mostly confused and bored. Contrary to some others, I liked the ending. It wasn't a 'happy' ending, per se, but I found it plausible and satisfying. The sexual encounters were a bit annoying, since they felt irrelevant to the general story, but I guess they serve a purpose as a depiction of the characters' humanity. My biggest complaint is that the sound quality was lacking and not up to the standard I am accustomed to.

  • Constance Q

    Did not enjoy the book. The characters were not likable, the story obvious, and the narrative droned on. Would not recommend. Narration was excellent however.

  • Elaine Dellinger

    I enjoyed reading this book. The topic is timely. However, the ending was a real letdown. Couldn't believe after all the hours listening there was literally no resolution in the storyline. Is there a sequel in the works? Way too many loose ends for me!
