    Inhaltsangabe

    The Circle is the exhilarating new audiobook from Dave Eggers, bestselling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award.

    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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “Eggers's novel begins with an almost giddy tone, re-created perfectly by narrator Dion Graham. Pulling every tool from his kit, Graham describes the inner workings of the world's largest Internet company as it develops a new identity operating system that will allow even easier access by users across different platforms…But--as the listener hears in Graham's increasingly horrified tone--this Google-like utopia quickly becomes a dystopia when Mae realizes what the Circle really has in mind. Listeners will be reminded of Orwell's 1984." ( AudioFile)
    “A vivid, roaring dissent to the companies that have coaxed us to disgorge every thought and action onto the Web . . . Carries the potential to change how the world views its addicted, compliant thrall to all things digital. If you work in Silicon Valley, or just care about what goes on there, you need to pay attention.” ( The Wall Street Journal)
    “Page-turning. . . . The social message of the novel is clear, but Eggers expertly weaves it into an elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st century. . . . What may be the most haunting discovery about The Circle, however, is readers’ recognition that they share the same technology-driven mentality that brings the novel’s characters to the brink of dysfunction. We too want to know everything by watching, monitoring, commenting, and interacting, and the force of Eggers’s richly allusive prose lies in his ability to expose the potential hazards of that impulse.” ( Vanity Fair)

    Gute Geschichte, miserabler Sprecher

    Sie mochten dieses Buch nicht ... Haben Sie vielleicht irgendwelche rettenden Maßnahmen dafür?

    Leider ist es mir nicht möglich, dieses Hörbuch weiter zu hören. Der interessante und aktuelle Inhalt macht das Anhören durch einen ganz und gar unpassenden Sprecher nicht möglich. Ich höre Hörbücher lieber im Original, aber in diesem Fall wünschte ich, ich hätte auf die Übersetzung gewartet.

    Scary Story

    This book really stressed me and gave me the shivers - a modern horror story! Nevertheless , I could not stop listening to it.

    a very very simple book

    the story is extremely obvious from the start and there is really nothing in there you could call story. it's like a bunch of critical blog posts about the work culture in US start ups and the dark side of the internet are thrown together.
    the style end especially the ending is a bad copy of 1984.

    I adore hating this book.

    If i had to compare this book to popular dystopian fiction I'd call it "1984: What if it was the twentyfirst century and Big Brother is being made by a company?"

    Schaffung von 1984 in der Gegenwart

    Interessante Idee, fällt aber in vielen Belangen flach aus insbesondere die Charaktere sind eindimensional und die Hauptperson enttäuscht. Regt aber zum Nachdenken an
