Rate this book
Clear rating
I liked it...except for this one substantial part that I really, really, really hated. If you know me and know what I do for a living, you would know that one character in this story and I had the exact same job. This character, somewhat predictably, ...more

Faith, poetry, science, hermeneutics, pop culture, paradoxes, the unknowable, and difficult questions - this imminently readable little book contains multitudes. As an open-minded discourse on the nature of God, it succeeds wildly. If you are looking ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
I find myself endlessly disgusted and transfixed by the guile of Fox News. I feel a heavy sadness at the misinformation that it spews and the dissent that it sows so widely amongst certain disillusioned people groups in our country.

Now, this book.

I'm a longtime Eggers fan, but "The Circle" is unlike anything that I've read from him before. Fast-paced, thought-provoking paranoia fiction with a chewy moral center suits him well, it turns out.

Oh, politics. I love you so.

Following up "Game Change," their chronicle of the 2008 Obama/McCain election cycle, with "Double Down," this recount of the 2012 Obama/Romney slugfest, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann have my loyal readership forever.
