'The Circle' Movie Vs. Book Shows How Big Versions Delve Deep Into Tech & SurveillanceSkip navigation! Story from Movies. Warning : Spoilers for The Circle ahead. When I first read Dave Eggers' novel The Circle in , it felt like a glimpse into a scary but not so distant future. 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. Perhaps it would have — had the film not replaced Eggers' dark ending with a bizarrely hopeful one.
BWW Review: THE CIRCLE By Dave Eggers: Which Is Better, The Book Or The Movie?
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.
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.

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.
