The Every
The Every: A Novel | Dave Eggers
14 posts | 11 read | 10 to read
When the world's largest search engine/social media company, The Circle, merges with the planet's dominant e-commerce site, it creates the richest and most dangerous--and, oddly enough, most beloved--monopoly ever known: The Every. Delaney Wells is an unlikely new hire. A former forest ranger and unwavering tech skeptic, she charms her way into an entry-level job with one goal in mind: to take down the company from within. With her compatriot, the not-at-all-ambitious Wes Kavakian, they look for the company's weaknesses, hoping to free humanity from all-encompassing surveillance and the emoji-driven infantilization of the species. But does anyone want what Delaney is fighting to save? Does humanity truly want to be free? Studded with unforgettable characters and lacerating set-pieces, The Every blends satire and terror, while keeping the reader in breathless suspense about the fate of the company--and the human animal.

Dave Eggers‘s writing is so realistic that it took me 6 months to digest and finish this book of how technology is running our lives. This is the second in The Circle series.

The most scary thing is, that lots of the discussed apps or functions, seem actually quite nice. Obviously should all that stay a choice, and not the only way of living. But this shows how easy it is for people to give in to easy things, instead of us thinking for ourselves.
Anyway, this book made me think, which is a sign of a good book. I liked how Mae played the silent part troughout the story. And Hurricane was just sad...

Imagine Amazon and Facebook combining into one omnipotent and unstopabble force....not too difficult to picture... The sequel to The Circle.

Leaving unrated.... for now

The Circle was scary, next day futuristic scary. This follow up was just as intense. While it's written full of satire, the humor is dark and truly speaks into the fall of human existence thanks to the spiral that is technology and the effects that come from it. It's terrifying and mind boggling. I just can't. I don't want to raise my children to live in the world that this book foreshadows.

Feels less futuristic and more next week...
Not a direct quote from the book but very similar to the storyline for sure.

A follow-up to The Circle finally comes in the form of The Every. I was giddy to pick this up and first in line at the library. In the beginning, I was excited to get sucked back into this world and humorous but creepy satire, but it was a bit long-winded and drawn out for me.

With the release of this sequel, it reminded me that I needed to go back and read the Circle. Well worth it and a little bit disconcerting.

Follow-up to The Circle, the target of Eggers' satire here is less the Facebook/Google/Apple monstrosity but the wider question of what we as a species are doing to ourselves in the name of "safety" and our determination to avoid being offended or disturbed at all cost. Funny and chilling in equal measure.

plemmdog Did you enjoy it more than The Circle? I just finished Circle and was kind of underwhelmed…on the fence about this one 12mo
Minervasbutler @plemmdog I read The Circle when it came out and enjoyed it. This one is basically more of the same so maybe not for you. I totally get the criticism that it's a bit unsubtle. 12mo
