Probably not. The story had promise, but fell short as it was overly simplistic. Also the reader was really poor.
The book ends abruptly. There is a bit of a twist at the end, but then the book tries to wrap up a few loose ends too quickly. It's clear this book was written in hopes that a sequel could be made.
Yes, but hopefully it would be made more interesting.
This story has a lot of promise. The basic idea is solid, but the book never deals with some of the key factors that may make practices of "the circle" essentially impossible in the real world. I kept thinking that real people wouldn't just blindly go along with all of the things that happen in the book. The book reads like a rough draft. About 30 percent should have been removed or rewritten to make it more interesting and more believable.
Good information. Great to get some insight into some of the specifics that are happening.
Reader was good. I've heard him to other books, and he's got a perfect voice for statistical based non fiction.
You're ruining your kids lives.
Overall I liked the book. However, I wish there was more statistical analysis on what happens to kids who's parent actually spend all the money on sports. I also wish there was more info on how valuable (or lack of value) there is in spending money on kids before a certain age - meaning how much does it actually help to spend 1k on training for an 8 year old.
The author provides a lot of good information, but makes very few statements like - based on this information you should do (or at least consider) XXXXXX.
If you like twisted, dark books, with characters who are unlikable, you'll like this book.
It's an interesting story, but the characters are just so unlikable.
