Eggers triumphs again with this near-futuristic glance into a world obsessed with sharing digital information. This novel plainly exposes the trajectory that many believe may be the ultimate irony that we are experiencing in this heavy technological age: that the advances made to bring us together will lead to what separates us more than ever. With a cast of symbolic characters, Eggers once again succeeds in reminding readers how our core values are rapidly becoming secondary–this time by the new and widespread personal desire individuals have to be recognized through social media. This novel serves as a bold message of our potential downfall as a society to a generation who has only known an Internet-ruled world. With a modern Orwellian theme, Eggers emphasizes our fragility in a world that equates privacy with treason and shame.
