    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, it was. The comparisson is obvious, but it felt like reading the new 1984. With a new language and modernized.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dave Eggers? Why or why not?

    Sure, he sure knows how to tell a story.


    Which character – as performed by Dion Graham – was your favorite?

    Mae's father. He cracked me up.


    Did The Circle inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, stay away from facebook


    Any additional comments?

    The book loses itself a little towards the end. It seems like the author was in a rush to finish the last pages. And I know I'm new at the audiobooks world but it was hard to get used to a man imitating a woman's voice at the beginning.

    Story
    (13463)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    As crazy as it seems, it reminds me of Bukowski's autobiographical books like Ham and Rye. They just make me feel good!


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    As I said, Fey delivers on everything she does. Including this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep. Couldn't, though, since I only listen while driving.


    Any additional comments?

    A must buy!
