About this book In this partly expository work, a framework is developed for building exotic circle actions of certain classical groups. The authors give general combination theorems for indiscrete isometry groups of hyperbolic space which apply to Fuchsian and limit groups. An abundance of integer-valued subadditive defect-one quasimorphisms on these groups follow as a corollary. The main classes of groups considered are limit and Fuchsian groups. Limit groups are shown to admit large collections of faithful actions on the circle with disjoint rotation spectra.

If you work in Silicon Valley, or just care about what goes on there, you need to pay attention. Eggers appears to run on pure adrenaline, and has as many ideas pouring out of him as the entrepreneurs pitching their inventions in The Circle.

The adventures of Mr.
Never less than entertaining. A fun and inventive read.
Simply a great story, with a fascinating protagonist, sharply drawn supporting characters and an exciting, unpredictable plot. The Circle is funny in its skewering of Internet culture.
Holland obsessively tallies the reach of her Twitter-like Zings and enthuses about a benefit for needy children that raises not money but 2. The Circle's buildings are named for epochs, so at her first party Holland gets her wine from the Industrial Revolution.
The ideas behind "The Circle" are compelling and deeply contemporary. Holland is an everywoman, a twentysomething believer in Internet culture untroubled by the massive centralization and monetization of information, ubiquitous video surveillance and corporate invasions of privacy. Compare that to A Hologram for the King , in which a middle-aged man thoughtfully but powerlessly observes America's economic decline, realizing that his efforts to participate in globalization led to his own obsolescence.
The two books together are saying something foreboding about America's place in the world: We have traded making physical things for a glossy, meaningless online culture that leaves us vulnerable to those who see that information — in the form of data, video feeds, or our own consumer desires — is power. We have met Big Brother, and he is us. And by the last pages, you may think twice before logging on again. Set in the not-so-distant future, the novel is part satire, part corporate thriller.
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.
