Narrator Dion Graham's heartbreaking delivery makes this follow-up to Eggers's novel about pervasive technology, THE CIRCLE, a must-listen. In an even yet expressive voice, Graham presents this satirical look at pervasive surveillance, social media, and e-commerce with just the right amount of menace and whimsy. Eggers even references the previous novel and the movie it spawned. What kind of world is e-commerce creating? How can an emoji truly capture the depth and despair of human emotion? This novel asks troubling questions but refuses to provide answers. Instead, Graham's narration takes on an ominous tone as the evolution of artificial intelligence makes free will and humanity bizarre concepts.
