The Circle by Dave Eggers

Probably the most pointless and boring book I have ever read.  Would not recommend to a friend.

The Circle by Dave Eggers

Very thought provoking!  I loved it.  I admit it was quite repetitive in the middle but I felt compelled to find out where the author was going with his theme.   17 more words
