BOOK TITLE: DIGITAL FORTRESS
AUTHOR: DAN BROWN
This was my second Dan Brown book after Deception point. I liked the concept. Few things the book was able to provide-
Vivid knowlwdge and details about the subject that’s a Dan Brown style.
A good grip and great thrill.
Another female protagonist that shows women are no less superior than men
Love and ambitions sometimes make you stupid and fool.
The story is set on America’s most intelligence Institute National Security Agency. The cryptographers of NSA has devised an instrument that can break any encrypted code within few minutes. When a code named Digital Fortress is given as input the code took unbelievably long time to crack. The code was made by an ex crypto of NSA who blackmailed NSA to reveal their secret of their code breaking machine. The head of Crypto fall for the trap and tried to break the digital fortress. Later they realised it was not an unbreakable code or virus but a simply dangerous program that can destroy NSA’s security capacity and make it vulnerable to outside hackers. At last the officials were successful in saving NSA from shame.
Well, the only confusion I have is whether Greg Hale was murdered or committed suicide. In the book it was described in such a way, at first one might think reading the scene that it was a suicide but as events passed the idea of murder came to spot. Anyway, it was a result of ingenious effort and research. I’m looking forward to read more of Dan Brown’s book in future.
