  One of his best.

I really liked this book, think he is a very talented writer. I've now read this with along with his other books and really like the idea. Definitely worth a read.

Firstly, Digital Fortress kept me absolutely riveted, I could rarely put the damn thing down! Secondly, although I would put it on a slightly lower par than the other Dan Brown books, I still believe you should DEFINITELY read this book - its worth spending a fiver on.

Set in the top secret NSA Government agency, Susan and her fiance David are both called in seperately to help Susan's boss with an emergency. While David jets off to Spain to recover an item which in theory should be relatively easy to gain, Susan helps her employer with the more technical side of things. A former worker at the NSA has managed to come up with a code that the NSA super-computer is unable to break. Fearing that this may go to publication and subsequently lock the NSA out of communication, both Susan and David (who is slightly less aware of the implications of his task) race desperately to find the pass-key to destroy the code altogether and consequently save the NSA.

Buy it, enjoyed it immensely.

  Astonishing

Having read The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons prior to Digital Fortress, I didn't have great expectations. How wrong I was! Absolutely brilliant - even for those who are clueless to cryptography, it's amazing.
Definitely on parr with his other works.

Being a fan of Dan Brown's unique storytelling style and also some experience in the field of cryptology, this book has been as entertaining as can be expected from Brown. Difficult to put down and highly recommended. Dan Brown delivers with the same unexpected shocks as with his other books.

  Good Dan Brown thriller

This is a typical good Dan Brown thriller, as with all his novels this follows his typical pattern and syle. This one however is not based on history as some of his others, but has a much more modern computer based theme, although cryptography based of course! Not as good as Angels and Demons, but still a good read.

  Not his best.

The book is good and worth reading however it isn't his best! I found it a little boring at times and it didn't make me want to read it as much as his other works have. I'd recommend it nonetheless but don't expect another Angels and Demons.

  Brilliant

This is the second book of Dan Browns i have read after the Da Vinci Code.

I bought Digital Fortress to read on holiday and could not put it down until the end, like The Da Vinci Code this had the twists, turns and senses of mystery throughout but i found Digital Fortress to be a much more involving and engrossing book.

In my opinion the best book i have read, a must buy for the Dan Brown book lover...

I absolutely agree this book is one that you will never be able to put down until you have read it cover to cover. As it switches from scene to scene between chapter you only want to read on in order to reveal the conclusion to each cliff hanger. Despite its slight predictability you will on no account become bored with the storyline. Dan Brown - you have yet another big fan.......I'm off to the shops to purchase his other best sellers.
