TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 12 March 2007
Dan Brown has had some bad press lately, much of it questioning his ability as a writer. As they say, there is no such thing as bad publicity. I have now read all Brown's books and found them both interesting and innovative. Digital Fortress is possibly the best story of the lot and to go too deeply into the plot would spoil it for the reader.

To give a very general synopsis is probably the best way to approach the plot of the book, so here goes: The US Presidential elections are coming up and the President's chances are not looking too good. The Senator who is vying with him for the Presidency is running a successful campaign against NASA, the American space agency. The Senator is virtually saying that the agency is now a white elephant drawing vast sums of money from the US taxpayer and give virtually nothing in return.

The President of the US then makes a television broadcast stating that NASA have made an earth shattering discovery. The announcement blows his opponents campaign right out of the water.

That is a very brief and broad resume of the book. Without giving too much away, I will just say that the discovery is made under 200ft. of ice in the Arctic and is mind blowing. To say anymore would spoil the story for the reader.
