The Circle

The Circle - Dave Eggers 3.5 stars

Scary book because it seems so close to potential reality. It's social media taking over tracking everyone and turning us into a totalitarian government. There's no privacy, and everyone must participate. After reading this book, I'm more in favor of unplugging frequently. I felt like going somewhere without technology for a few hours to decompress, with all the notifications the characters were getting, I couldn't handle seeing any for awhile. It also made me realize how worrying about likes and smiles and seeing everything on a feed can take your time.
