When Gran and his family move to Carousel, he has no idea that the town is built atop a secret. Little does he suspect, as he walks his sister to school or casually eats a banana, that mysterious forces lurk mere inches beneath his feet, tearing up the earth like mini-hurricanes and causing the town to slowly but surely sink. When Gran's friend, the difficult-to-impress Catalina Catalan, presses a silver handle into a hillside and opens a doorway to underground, he knows that she is extraordinary and brave, and that he will have no choice but to follow wherever she leads. With luck on their side, and some discarded hockey sticks for good measure, Gran and Catalina might just find a way to lift their town--and the known world--out of danger. In The Lifters, critically acclaimed author Dave Eggers establishes himself as a storyteller who can entertain and inspire readers of any age. Eggers skillfully handles the trope of the kids who save the town, with plenty of humorous adult cluelessness but an equal measure of compassion.
The social message of the novel is clear, but Eggers expertly weaves it into an elegantly told, compulsively readable parable for the 21st century.
Eggers has a keen eye for context, and the great strength of The Circle lies in its observations about the way instant, asynchronous communication has damaged our personal relationships. A speculative morality tale in the vein of George Orwell. We go on using the social media platforms that have been used against us; we post geo-tagged photos that could lead potential criminals straight to our private homes and our children's preschools, and we do all of this with full knowledge of the possible consequences.
We have closed our eyes and given our consent. Everyone else is doing it. Stop liking and sharing and tweeting and texting! Stop it all! The world that the Circle is delivering to the online masses is very much our world.
We need a legion of Dave Eggers in the world today, calling out the dangers. The Circle pushes his art even further. It feels like the next horrific—but very plausible—small step for mankind.
The novel, set in the near future, is an engaging mix of social satire and cautionary tale. A sense of horror finally arrives near the end of the book, coming. The final scene is chilling. Set in the not-too-distant future, Eggers' story takes us inside a shiny-happy California-based media corporation called the Circle. Eggers creates for us a surprisingly contemporary world that seems strangely familiar to regular social media users — a world into which all of us excitedly join without much prompting.
This is a novel about the silence inside your head. Always keeping the focus on Mae, Eggers brings up all the Big Brother issues of our time: In , the members of the Party are watched by Big Brother; in The Circle, it is the people who watch the government.
