A million people, a billion, wanted to be where Mae was at this moment, entering this atrium, 30 feet high and shot through with California light, on her first day working for the only company that really mattered at all.
A story from The New York Times Magazine, adapted from The Circle, a new novel by Dave Eggers.
With multiple awards under his belt, including an AudioFile Magazine Golden Voice and Booklist's "Voice of Choice", narrator Dion Graham does not disappoint with his effortless performance of this story from the New York Times Magazine, adapted from Dave Eggers' novel The Circle. Mae has an enviable job at a social networking company, and slowly, she becomes seduced by a culture of constant updates and a seemingly unlimited chain of social connections. Graham fully engages listeners' attention with his attention to realism, and he works in subtle nuances of menace as Mae discovers the dark side of always being connected.

My kind of horror story
- David "Actor/director/teacher. Split my time between Beijing and Seattle now. Listen to Audible on the subway and while driving or riding my bike."
I was taken aback
The summary of the story was accurate, but did not give justice to this short story; filled with mental and voyeuristic action. Loved it!
Mae. I identified with how she was comfortable keeping her thoughts and actions to herself, but was challenged later on in the story.
I was taken aback by how fast he was talking, at first.. But, as I kept listening, his delivery made perfect sense. I wasn't ready, but he kept my attention with every word he spoke.
