The Every: A novel

We rated this book:


Delaney is interviewing for a position with The Every. The Every is a global conglomerate that has eaten the world, in many respects. The pandemics of the past have destroyed small businesses, while also altering human behavior. The Every insists on the most sterile of environments for any employees, which means limited physical contact. Delaney answers any & all questions from her prospective employers while holding back her motive: She plans to destroy the company from within. The Every stresses its benefits for humanity, yet Delaney is appalled by its greed, paranoia, and unlimited power. As she moves further and further into the company, she roots for her ideas to take hold, but also clings to her dissipating hold on her sanity and humanity. Will she be the destroyer or the unlikely savior of The Every?

The Every is the latest Fiction opus from acclaimed author Dave Eggers (“The Circle”). Eggers’ vision of Brave New World on steroids is disheartening and grim, yet the satire is brilliant and biting for the reader to appreciate. The comparisons between the unregulated colossus of The Every and the current Too Big to Fail” behemoths are prescient. A must-read for 2022.
