Digital Fortress by Dan Brown



I finished this slightly battered copy of Dan Brown's Digital Fortress within 2 days. The bulk of it in the first. It's that good. 

I got this book from a colleague earlier this year as she was clearing out her bookshelves. Thought I'd take it since I really enjoyed 'The Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels and Demons' and I was not to be disappointed. 

What a thriller it was! I was hooked from the beginning. The many twists and turns in the novel came at the precise moments when the reader's attention might be faltering and really worked to keep one reading. 

The book is about the National Security Agency (NSA) in the USA that serves as the databank for all things classified and confidential. A possible leak would be disastrous and that is what it faces as an ex-employee threatens to bring the house down. Our protagonists, David Becker and Susan Fletcher are lovers who are at opposite ends of the globe working hard to solve the mystery.

That's about as much as I can give away without spoiling the plot. If you're bored, this is a book you'd not want to miss. It's really exciting. If not for the fact that I had to report to work at 8.30am this morning, I'd have stayed up to complete the book. 

Well then, can't wait to get my hands on Dan Brown's latest!

Till then, enjoy!
