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