Beschreibung von Audible

With multiple awards under his belt, including an AudioFile Magazine Golden Voice and Booklist's "Voice of Choice", narrator Dion Graham does not disappoint with his effortless performance of this story from the New York Times Magazine, adapted from Dave Eggers' novel The Circle. Mae has an enviable job at a social networking company, and slowly, she becomes seduced by a culture of constant updates and a seemingly unlimited chain of social connections. Graham fully engages listeners' attention with his attention to realism, and he works in subtle nuances of menace as Mae discovers the dark side of always being connected.

The future is already here

Where does work end and private life begin? It is really hard to tell. From the background of vastly expanding social networks plus the recent debates about data security and its violation worldwide, this is very topical. The story is probably meant as science fiction, but it could already have happened like that - well, almost.

Could be better.

The story was OK but I didn't enjoy the way the speaker read it. His intonation going higher at the end of lots of words didn't alway suit in there, which unabled me to enjoy the plot.
