    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. 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 complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

    Story

    I'm afraid that this book is the same as all books that I've read by Dan Brown. The book is written for the dumbed down masses, and assumes that the reader has hardly ever read anything before, has virtually no general knowledge, and won't see through the flimsiest of plots.

    This book is, to literature, what Ryan Seacrest is to music, or what Paris Hilton is to feminism.

    It's not a "bad" story per se, but it lacks imagination and is highly predictable. The performance however, is very good indeed.

    When Cheryl and her fiancé, a soldier who has just gotten back from Afghanistan, are on their way back to Denver after a reunion camping trip in the mountains, she hears that an epidemic has spread like wildfire. She has no idea that just a few hours later her life will be threatened by hoards of "Eaters", the infected whose lust for rotten food quickly turns to an insatiable desire for human flesh once their corpses are reanimated. Cheryl witnesses the best and worst of human nature as she and a group of refugees struggle to stay alive.

    Story

    It's not TERRIBLE, but neither is it engaging or exciting. The character development is weak, the story line lacks the urgency and terror of a good zombie novel. By the end of the book I felt disappointed by the formulaic plot, and the uninspired narration. I found my mind wandering to other things while listening to this book, which never happens in a truly well written, gripping book.
