Abstract
Huxleys schöne neue Welt reloaded: Die 24-jährige Mae Holland ist überglücklich. Sie hat einen Job ergattert in der hippsten Firma der Welt, beim »Circle«, einem freundlichen Internetkonzern mit Sitz in Kalifornien, der die Geschäftsfelder von Google, Apple, Facebook und Twitter geschluckt hat, indem er alle Kunden mit einer einzigen Internetidentität ausstattet, über die einfach alles abgewickelt werden kann. Mit dem Wegfall der Anonymität im Netz - so ein Ziel der »weisen drei Männer«, die den Konzern leiten - wird die Welt eine bessere. Mae stürzt sich voller Begeisterung in diese schöne neue Welt mit ihren lichtdurchfluteten Büros und High-Class-Restaurants, wo Sterne-Köche kostenlose Mahlzeiten für die Mitarbeiter kreieren, wo internationale Popstars Gratis-Konzerte geben und fast jeden Abend coole Partys gefeiert werden. Sie wird zur Vorzeigemitarbeiterin und treibt den Wahn, alles müsse transparent sein, auf die Spitze. Doch eine Begegnung mit einem mysteriösen Kollegen ändert alles.
Content
"The Circle is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, best-selling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award. When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users' personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company's modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can't believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world--even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman's ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge".
