I can't help admitting that I don't find this book as classic as
"The Da Vinci Code", for I totally forgot having read this volume before
when I picked it up last week!! I guess that happens when one doesn't
think the book good enough for remembering?
"Digital Fortress" is up to a degree similar to the famous "The Da
Vinci Code", with a plot far simpler and a code far easier to decipher.
The complicated relationships interweaving the story aren't stressed
enough and therefore I can't feel the weight of it on the heart of all
the characters. In fact, it seems to me that the arrangement of someone
being other's father/ lover/ admirer is totally unecessary, or seems artificial.
In short, this novel is sure to be interesting, but in all it lacks
depth. But still, one can take a look at "Digital Fortress" to discern
how lots of progress Dan Brown has made.
