Digital Fortress


Digital Fortress by Dan Brown

I finished another book last night. It is written by Dan Brown, the author of The DiVinci Code. After reading it I feel like I could go interview for the CIA or create the world's most complicated computer program. It's a technological thriller that is written for those who know everything and nothing (ie: ME) about codes, virus's', and the world of computers. He took a subject that could potentially be very dull to the masses and created a fast paced addicting thriller.

BUT... all of that being said I personally wouldn't recommend this book or read it again, due to the fact that is was filled with profanity. I hate how authors do that. I read for three reasons. To be entertained, informed, and escape reality. Profanity is definitely not entertaining, informative and I hear it enough in the real world that...the last thing I want is to have it forced on me in my attempt to escape reality! Grrr... one day when I own my own publishing company things will be different! HaHa.

It sounds like a good book though.

i read it & felt the same way about it. it was a lot more exciting than i thought it would be & i really liked it but didn't appreciate all the swears. but other than that, after i read the book i was pretty sure i could take apart our computer and put it back together again. i'm a techie now!
