wishful wednesday

What a cool number, 111😀 Welcome to Wishful Wednesday, everyone!

Minggu yang super aneh karena banyaknya hari libur yang berselang-seling. Entah kantormu menerapkan cuti bersama, atau meliburkan karyawannya, atau justru memaksa kamu untuk tetap kerja di sela-sela hari libur, well.. semoga semua tetap bisa menikmati minggu yang unik ini. Dan tentunya tetap berandai-andai donk.

Seorang teman yang tidak terlalu suka membaca buku fiksi merekomendasikan buku incaran saya minggu ini, The Circle (Dave Eggers). Bercerita tentang seorang perempuan yang bekerja di perusahaan internet raksasa, dan membahas tentang kehidupan di era internet yang penuh dengan intrik, konspirasi, suspense, lack of privacy dan banyak isu menarik lainnya.

the circle

The Circle is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, best-selling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award.

When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in America—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

Selalu suka dengan buku-buku model begini, karena terasa dekat sekali dengan keseharian kita yang hidup di era internet, sosmed dan teman-temannya sekarang ini.
