    Definitely a fast-paced book that was breathtaking at times which took me into the world of of cyberism and national intelligence. What I love about this book was that the heroine, Susan, was a female. Not only that, but she was one of the important asset to breaking the code. As we...

    I don't even remember what this one is about. There's a CIA computer technician, and all I can remember about her is the scene where a security guard is ogling her sweet, sweet ass and wondering in bafflement how a woman with a 192 IQ could be so damn fuckable. Also, I'm pretty sure sh...

    There's a reason why everyone talks about The DaVinci Code and not about this book. I have no idea what that reason would be, because I thought Angels & Demons was mediocre so I never bothered to read the The DaVinci Code. Anyway, I was bored and a copy of this was sitting at the l...

    Here?s the problem: Digital Fortress has a good plot, but it?s filled with weak characters. I really liked the plot. A disgruntled NSA employee develops an unbreakable encryption program (the Digital Fortress) and threatens to give both the encryption program and the key (which is ...

    Oh Dan Brown, how I love to hate you. It seems a universal truth that when you have run out of all of the books to read that you?ve brought with you, it is impossible to find decent reading material wherever you are. Shamefully, I?ve actually read most of his books. I read Ange...

    Reading Dan Brown books is a bit like watching porn. Mildly enjoyable at the time, but not really something you'd like your friends or family to know about. Digital Fortress starts as it means to go on, with two-dimensional characters in a whirlwind of mystery and action. The cast n...

    The topic is quite interesting & having an author perfectly fit the shoes of one so revered (talking, of course about the late great Michael Crichton) is truly magnificent, in my book. This thriller is fast (hooray!) & riveting. It is relevant to modern times & some reviewe...

    My book group chose this book and I will never forgive them. I?ve never read anything by Dan Brown. He doesn?t write my type of fiction, so while I was aware that he?s a huge success, I never bothered to pick any of his books up because I knew I wouldn?t be interested. Wh...

    I learned that Dan Brown is a bad writer and I will never read any of his other books. I also am upset at my friend for recommending me this book. In short, the book is a bad novel, and a very bad novel if you know anything about math / cryptography. Not only the technical errors w...

    What would happen if every nation and person in the would, with a computer, could access every top secret file of the government? This is what Susan Fletcher and David Becker have to prevent in Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. With a lot of action and suspense Digital Fortress is a book ...

    I work in the Information Technology field so relating to this book was easy for me. I don?t know anything about NSA (National Security Agency) and how they operate but I know stuff like encryption, algorithm, anagram, computer virus, code-breaking, etc. So, this book glued me from s...

    I'm not sure what to believe after reading this book. I've always liked Dan Brown's books because he writes so realistically, using big words to belittle readers about how little they know. Or so I thought. After reading this book, I did a little snooping of my own (OK, those were bi...

    No matter what people want to say about Dan Brown or his books or hatred towards him you got to admire the fact that what he brings to the table no one else does. This was the book which brought me to the beautiful world of books. Before reading this book I though reading was a bit ...

    Based upon how very little I'd heard about Dan Brown's two non-Robert Langdon books, I went into this one with very low expectations. However, Digital Fortress is a fairly well-written and entertaining novel. The main storyline is based upon a hush-hush operation within the NSA to obta...

    Dan Brown is not just Da Vinci Code! This is a pretty good cyber-thriller. It resonates well in a world where data security and hacking are a part of the daily news. Check it out if you are a fan of fast paced thrillers with lots of suspense. (It has short chapters, too, which I like a...

    Review also at https://edwardsghostengine.wordpress.... What a ride! All I can say is Dan Brown is one hell of a thriller writer! I will admit that this type of book is not really my cup of tea (I picked it up on a whim) because I?m more of a fantasy/ paranormal fan and this was ...

    A good little thriller whose pages turn all alone and at full speed ... Not great literature with a little simple style and especially the characters too clichs and little searched to be credible and endearing, but the plot is catchy! Nevertheless, I regret the fact that Dan Brown s...

    I think this was possibly my least favorite book by Brown. It lacked a certain something. Maybe it's just because I'm not that savvy in the things he wrote about, but I choose to think otherwise. He should stick to what he does best, historical mystery. ...

    Not a bad debut. Inaccurate and slanderous portrayal of Spain aside, this was pretty good, a fun ride, a little immature but really enjoyable. Considering Brown set out to best Sidney Sheldon, one of SS's books impelled him to start writing his own, to pen a "better" thriller. I'd ...

    I picked up this Dan Brown?s debut novel after enjoying he?s Robert Langdon series, it?s exactly what you?d expect with quick fast paced chapters and an intriguing mystery - this time digital codes and computers. It?s a fun thriller than keeps you interested, I did enjoy i...

    This is one of the two stand alone novels authored by Dan Brown; other being the Deception Point. Both are of the science fiction genre. But no matter on what genre Dan Brown writes, one thing you can be certain to find; and that is the use of codes and puzzles. With his unique use o...

    "Who will guard the guards?" This is my first Dan Brown book and as cliche goes this would surely not be my last! Originally, I started reading this last May but never got around to finishing it after I stopped at Chapter 20, and I must say that despite of the 5-month hiatus, I coul...
