The story was totally unbelievable. I have listened to and loved the other Dan Brown books from Audible (i.e. Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, and Deception Point). In Digital Fortress, however, I found Brown’s ignorance of computer science, cryptography and mathematics to be distracting. Since these items were intrinsic to the story line, the story did no make any sense. I am talking about more than just a few mistakes. The plot was a joke.
The narration by Paul Michael was excellent. Dan Brown writes with a great flow. The book may be worth reading if you can forget anything you know about math and physics while you read it or can embrace ignorance.
This is one of the most memorable books that I have downloaded from Audible (and I have downloaded over 250 books). The Narrator was outstanding. I recommend this to anyone.
I can see why this book won the Hugo Award. After reading it, I bought the next two in the triology.
The writer's depiction of the Neanderthal culture was most interesting. The book was well read.
This was the best court room drama that I have ever read, seen or listened to. The characters were well drawn. The reader was excellent.
Some have criticized the book for being somewhat beyond belief - so what! I couldn't put the book down.
