When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not as good as Angels & Demons If you ask me, I am a sucker of all Dan Brown books. Anything he writes, no matter a single blog, I will read it. So how can I NOT like this book. It was very interesting, gripping and hooked me for hours. If you have a little bit of IT background, I'm sure you'd be taken with this thriller. I have read all his books now. Wonder what he is writing these days :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riveting Written in 1998, lived out in 2013. Did this novel give Edward Snowden a reason to reveal NSA secrets, or is author Dan Brown a prophet? You will be burning the midnight oil with this page turner, and perhaps persuaded that Big Brother has taken evesdropping too far. A delightful, yet gripping thriller, Digital Fortress is typical of Dan Brown's story telling ability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reader A really good thriller with lots of twists, turns and unexpected surprises. Definitely ahead of its time in regard to the NSA but, it does reveal the importance of spying and the sensitive materials that need to be kept hidden.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Before anything else: I enjoyed Angels and demons, and the Da Vinci code, too, although I didn't believe they were literary masterpieces either. But this one... - The main characters are perfect and gorgeous and super intelligent, and fantastic and and and. Completely impossible to relate to them. Utterly 2-dimensional. Dan Brown always does this. - Other characters are stereotypical through and through (the tech-nerd is obese, unhygienic and socially awkward, for example) - Story is very predictable - If you read this one after other Dan Brown books, you'll immediately notice the same story structure and tricks as in every other book. He basically found one formula and changes some minor bits, like the setting here and there and claims to have written a new novel. - Repetitive. And repetitive. Also, quite repetitive. - If you know that computers have a power button, you know more about computers than Dan Brown. This is fine, unless Dan Brown writes a 'hacker thriller'. Which this is. So, yeah. - R-e-p-e-t-i-t-i-v-e! So many times I face-palmed and even yelled at the book for this and many other banalities and errors. I cannot believe I managed to finish this. I stopped three times. I keep my books after reading them and re-read plenty. This one went straight to the first garage sale I attended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPIC! By the author of the Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown brings us on a whole new adventure with mystery, tecnology, thrills, even romance. Digital Fortress has a little something for everyone. I'm reading this book for the second time now and it's still an amazing ride

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine Probably my least favourite of his books. From the beginning I could foreshaddow the end. An okay read but thats about it. I did however, like the fact that the hero is a heroine. nice change for once. Otherwise a fairly basic thriller. It looked to me like he got writting thrillers for dummies and just imputed information into an allready layed out series of events found in most books of thin genre

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantatic I read Angels & Demons and The DaVinci Code before reading this novel, so I was worried about being disappointed considering how great the previous two novel were. But there was no disappointment with this novel. Dan Brown maintained his great intrigue in this novel! If you are a Dan Brown fan, you will love this book, like you love the others!!!
