    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.

    "Dan Brown's worst"
    Overall

    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.

    Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a slave labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman, so she went underground.

    Catherine says: "An Amazing Story & Narration"
    "Compelling"
    Overall

    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.

    Neanderthals have developed a radically different civilization on a parallel Earth. A Neanderthal physicist, Ponter Boddit, accidentally passes from his universe into a Canadian underground research facility. Fortunately, a team of human scientists, including expert paleo-anthropologist Mary Vaughan, promptly identifies and warmly receives Ponter. Solving the language problem and much else is a mini-computer, called a Companion, implanted in the brain of every Neanderthal. But it can't help his fellow scientist back in his world, Adikor Huld, when the authorities charge Adikor with his murder.

    Scott says: "Scicen Fiction Can Be Literature"
    "Ear Candy"
    Overall

    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.

    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    Josh says: "Fun, Predictable Fluff"
    "Excellent Court Room Drama"
    Overall

    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.
