內容簡介

愛瑪‧華生、湯姆‧漢克主演新片《揭密風暴》電影書封小說

2013年10月亞馬遜本月選書;本書很難不讓人想起《1984》或是《美麗新世界》──老大哥還在,老大哥無所不在,只是這次老大哥就是我們自己。

距今不久的未來,世界上最有影響力的網路公司叫做the Circle,每個人只要開一個帳戶,利用公司無所不包的作業系統,就能夠統整電子郵件、社群媒體、銀行、購物等各種服務。所有人在網路上只有一個身分,所有人的真實身分都公開,公司還推出了輕巧的高畫質網路攝影機,讓人能夠隨時隨地分享周遭事物,也能無時無刻看遍全世界。人們趨之若鶩。沒有什麼不可告人的事,一切都攤在太陽下,就連政治人物也紛紛戴上攝影機,證明自己行得正、坐得端──這正是the Circle高喊的口號:「秘密即是謊言」、「分享才是關懷」、「隱私就是偷竊」。

小說的主角Mae是個平凡的大學畢業生,機緣巧合進了the Circle工作,她替公司想出了增加用戶及影響力的辦法,因而爬得越來越高,也越來越接近公司的權力核心。儘管她身邊不乏不認同the Circle作法的人,也有人向她提出警告,但她卻越陷越深……。

本書作者Dave Eggers是作家、編輯,經營出版社,也成立了非營利的青少年寫作教學中心。Eggers著作甚豐,橫跨小說、非小說、戲劇等文類,作品獲獎無數,並曾獲普立茲獎提名。


The Circle is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, best-selling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award.
 
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. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.
