March Selection: Dave Eggers' The Circle

PBR Book Club is getting dystopian in 2014 with a couple of our selections:  Dave Eggers' The Circle in March and Chang-Rae Lee's On Such a Full Sea in May.

The last time we read one of the heralded young literary hotshots (Chabon's Telegraph Avenue), most of PBR Book Club was not impressed, and some were downright hostile.  So how will a Twitter-loving book club react to Eggers' vision of social media dystopia?  Come join us at the end of March.  In the meantime, keep tweeting!

Margaret Atwood likes the book pretty well:

"Eggers treats his material with admirable inventiveness and gusto. The plot capers along, the trap doors open underfoot, the language ripples and morphs."
