Yes, 'The Circle' sucks. You should still read 'The Circle'

They say the book is always better than the movie. In the case of The Circle , based on the book by Dave Eggers, I would venture to say that I enjoyed the Lionsgate movie more , which is rare for me. In full disclosure, I watched the movie first, then read the book directly after, so both were fresh in my mind during the comparison. The movie follows the book pretty faithfully, pulling exact sentences and scenarios and bringing them to life. Both mediums are centered around Mae Holland, a young woman who gets a job in Customer Experience at The Circle, an incredibly successful newer company on the cusp of innovation and cutting edge technology. It is The Circle's goal to make life easier, better, more fulfilling.

The Circle: Why the Movie Sucks! - Book VS Movie

It's now clear that Hollywood made a hot mess of The Circle.

Book VS Movie – The Circle

So pretty much any time a book gets made into a major motion picture, I read it. Then I watch the movie, where I proceed to pick apart what was done good and what unforgivable mistakes were made by screenwriters and casting directors. For one of my book clubs, we all agreed that reading The Circle by Dave Eggers would be a great choice. We based this decision solely on the fact that both Emma Watson and Tom Hanks were starring in the movie adaption of the book, and everyone knows those two are awesome! Needless to say, we approached the book with very high hopes. I read the book and something strange happened…. First, let me tell you a little about the book.

The Circle is a dystopian novel written by American author Dave Eggers. Her initially rewarding experience turns darker. Mae Holland, a recent college graduate, lands a job at The Circle, a powerful technology company run by the "Three Wise Men. Mae starts out in Customer Experience CE , the firm's customer service department, but quickly climbs the company ladder. From the beginning, Mae is impressed by amenities at The Circle, including access to top-notch technology, dorm-like housing, gyms, recreation activities and parties.

Given how much more open our world has become since Eggers' novel was first released, The Circle's film adaptation should have felt timelier than ever.

Do you have a rule like this? Let me know in the comments! It tells the story of what happens when we combine monopoly with our current frantic progression towards transparency, especially in social media circles. Our protagonist Mae gets hired as a Customer Experience employee, and as she strives to be successful at her job, gets sucked into the progression of the company. I did really enjoy the changes in Mae as she becomes increasingly entrenched in the world of The Circle.

A cautionary tale of the all-consuming technology and social media around us, the movie stars Emma Watson as Mae Holland, a idealistic twenty something who finally gets her dream job, working at the powerful tech company The Circle. Now having millions of viewers following her every move, Mae becomes a sensation at The Circle and has bigger ideas, ones that bring up questions about privacy and surveillance throughout the world. But fans of the book will find some major tweaks in the movie version. A big one taken out is the love triangle Mae has in the book with fellow Circle employees Francis and the mysterious Kalden. Though Ty and Mae seems to have a romantic chemistry, he has more of the Kalden character in him, as Ty is the off-the-grid former wunderkind at the company that reveals to Mae the dark secrets of The Circle. Ponsoldt said the Francis character was in early drafts of the script, but was lifted as he didn't feel central to Mae's evolution at The Circle. To do that, Ponsoldt also changed the tone of the ending.
