A Waterstones employee recommended this. He said it put him off the internet for life. I have made it my vow  to be more internet savvy, which is contrary to the message of this disturbing novel; a 1984 or Brave New World for our social media times. Imagine a company so huge and powerful that it subsumes Google, Apple and the rest; thus creating a monstrosity called 'The Circle' which dictates our lives. While some may say the ideas are stretched to the absurd, the warning in this book is there: be careful where Facebook takes us... We will all be watching ourselves... Are we all Big Brother in the end?

Despite flopping, the film starring Tom Hanks is quite good. As always, however. the book is better.
