?My God. (?) It's heaven? are the first thoughts of Mae when she discovers the Circle (p. 1). This heaven will progressively become hell as we follow her into The Circle, a science-fiction novel written by Dave Eggers and published in 2013. Mae Holland joins the Circle, the most powerful company in the world. The book follows her evolution in the company as new technologies are developed by the Circle in the near future. As Mae becomes more and more transparent and public, the company is heading towards ?completion?, provoking conflicts about the impacts of technology on our society, freedom, privacy, and human knowledge.
