Editor reviews

With multiple awards under his belt, including an AudioFile Magazine Golden Voice and Booklist's "Voice of Choice", narrator Dion Graham does not disappoint with his effortless performance of this story from the New York Times Magazine, adapted from Dave Eggers' novel The Circle. Mae has an enviable job at a social networking company, and slowly, she becomes seduced by a culture of constant updates and a seemingly unlimited chain of social connections. Graham fully engages listeners' attention with his attention to realism, and he works in subtle nuances of menace as Mae discovers the dark side of always being connected.

Summary

A million people, a billion, wanted to be where Mae was at this moment, entering this atrium, 30 feet high and shot through with California light, on her first day working for the only company that really mattered at all.

My kind of horror story

Half way through this chilling story my skin began to crawl. Vampires, zombies and Cthulu have never really done it for me, but this modern tale of true believers in a technologically unlimited world will keep me awake tonight. Eggers engineers a flawlessly incremental slide into smiling, wide-eyed hell, and Dion Graham rings the perfect notes of mindless sincerity to turn your stomach and whiten your knuckles during the ride.

I was taken aback

What did you love best about We Like You So Much and Want to Know You Better?

The summary of the story was accurate, but did not give justice to this short story; filled with mental and voyeuristic action. Loved it!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mae. I identified with how she was comfortable keeping her thoughts and actions to herself, but was challenged later on in the story.

What about Dion Graham’s performance did you like?

I was taken aback by how fast he was talking, at first.. But, as I kept listening, his delivery made perfect sense. I wasn't ready, but he kept my attention with every word he spoke.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely!

Any additional comments?

More, please!
