Digital Fortress by Dan Brown Book Summary

Before the multi-million, runaway bestseller The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown set his razor-sharp research and storytelling skills on the most powerful intelligence organization on earth--the National Security Agency (NSA)--in this thrilling novel, Digital Fortress.

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 and beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage...not by guns or bombs, but by a code so ingeniously complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves.

From the underground hallways of power to the skyscrapers of Tokyo to the towering cathedrals of Spain, a desperate race unfolds. It is a battle for survival--a crucial bid to destroy a creation of inconceivable genius...an impregnable code-writing formula that threatens to obliterate the post-cold war balance of power. Forever.

Digital Fortress (Dan Brown) Book Reviews

Awesome book!!I loved this book!! It was always stopping the chapters in the middle of a killing or somthing like that!! For me it was a little confusing because you were trying to follow four different people and what they were doing and it got kind of annoying at parts. But i love this book and all of dan browns books are amaxing! Defineatly a good choice of reading.Score: 5/5

Digital FortressExcellent storyline! Riveting the whole entire read. If you like books that keep you thinking then this is the one. Just when you think you have it figured out, there is a twist. The only disappointing thing was the profanity, there was no need for it..Score: 4/5

Loved the bookThis book is just awesome. Every part of the book kept you on your nerves trying to guess what came next. Amazing storyline. Loved it ! Finished reading it in 2 days..Score: 5/5

Just OK...While the plot that drove the book was fairly well developed, I fund most of the dialogue banal and predictable. If you're looking for good near future thrillers, I would highly suggest anything by Daniel Suarez..Score: 3/5

Digital FortressWell written. Brown has a way of making fiction follow fact so closely that the work almost becomes a political statement. His statement, "Who is guarding the guards?" Is probably close to today's truth. Suspenseful read..Score: 4/5

AMAZING MAGICAL BOOKI am thrilled with the book from pg1 to pg467 I couldn't put it down, and I don't know how Mr. Brown did it, but he did it again. Read "The Dan Vinci Code" etc has been the same experience. In short loved this to the end. Read it everywhere from the bed, bathroom, even during dinners.

Digital Fortress ReviewAs usual with Dan Browns books it will keep you glued to your seat for the most part. Meaning the story slows down a lot and your edge of the seat Interest slows with it. I found myself putting the book or in my case IPad aside more than once to focus on other things. As a speed reader I normally zip through a book that holds my interest. This storyline slowed in more than one area until the last 100 pages. As with most of Dans books as the story reaches its peak it again becomes alive and unable to shut out. That again happened in Digital Fortress and the climax was all I had hoped for. So to sum up, the beginning third was spell bounding, the middle third was somewhat slow and easy to predict and the final third had you at the edge of your seat. Now that I think about it it appears Dan set it up this way and achieved his goal. In the future I would be a bit more careful as a lesser fan of his work might have strayed as the story slowed!

Digital FortressThis book really stayed with me. I read it in about 2-3 days and i loved it. It had a lot of emotion and thrill in it. The ending was spectacular and very well done. I can easily say that I loved this book from start to finish and I'm sure that anyone who is a fan of Dan Brown's will love this book..Score: 5/5

So bad I couldn't finish itDigital Fortress is clearly one of Dan Brown's early efforts. It reads like a collection of soundbites, and the plot is telegraphed so clearly that you pretty much know what's going to happen before it does. I rarely give up on a book, but I did on this one. Dan Brown's later efforts are much better than this amateurish book..Score: 1/5

LUVS IT!!😍😍This was my absolute favorite book! The plot had amazing twists and turns that made me turn pages so quickly☺️! The characters were developed perfectly! It was beautifully written. Brown did such an amazing job describing all of the events. He made you ask why the heck anyone would do that and then showed why later in the book. Couldn't put it down!!!!!!!💋💋💋.Score: 5/5

Digital Fortress by BaldacciExcellent novel. But it was pub in 1998 and I'd forgotten I'd read it back then, so I regret buying it now. Can't return it so... Still, a very good read..Score: 4/5

Good story dated by technologyThe story still rings fresh in our ears as current events unfold surrounding the NSA and their purported data gathering programs. It is always fascinating to watch the debate and the interplay of ethics between security and freedom. This book is a still-relevant story even if we've seen some of the tech within move on, and other elements are becoming reality- Google Glass among them. It's a fun read. If you've got nothing to hide, there's little to fear. When you have much to lose, the stakes rise..Score: 4/5

Great ReadDigital Fortress is one of the best reads I've had in 10 years. Written in 1998 by Dan Brown, the NSA headlines in 2013 sound so, similar. It's eerie; well worth the money..Score: 5/5

FantasticI'm not a heavy reader, I've only read like 5 books in my whole life, so, when I decided to start a reading habit I first thought of Dan Brown because I loved the 2 motion pictures based on his novels. I admit I only purchased Digital Fortress because I only had a few bucks in my apple account and was on sale, what a pleasant investment. It starts so strong and with such a detailed, and not boring at all, development of characters that its almost impossible to put it down. I was expecting his famous twists and turns and when I started reading I promised to myself I wouldn't be tricked or taken by surprise by the narrative, boy I was wrong, he managed to involve you in the story you'd keep numb and then, boom!, a twist. I even bought his recent Inferno and started reading it right up finishing Digital fortress cause I'm still hooked with his writing. Long story short, if u like suspense and puzzling this one you should read. Hope u enjoy it as much as I did..Score: 5/5
