Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Circle (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Being a big fan of most of his books, the Circle was really disappointing. If it were declared as a youth novel, it might work, but to me it felt superficial, repetitive, and the characters were just very bland. At the beginning I thought it's like one of the easier Douglas Coupland reads, but the more it 'developed' the worse it went. Yes, i finished it, being on holiday with plenty of time and skipping the pages as I went.
I do understand his intentions of a 21st century Orwell, but the execution is just too obvious and lacks his subtlety and feeling for character development. After 'You shall know our velocity' this is already the second book in a row that I disliked for more a less the same reasons, but I keep hoping.
