I read the Da Vinci Code years ago - I remember it because I had one day study leave for my key stage 3s (back in 3rd year, 4 years ago now) and I spent it reading the Da Vinci Code. I really enjoyed it, and planning to read Angels and Demons.

Victoria - is Digital Fortress about digital things? Is there science in it that's hard to understand? I prefer books that someone with no science background can understand and I think the title has always put me off. :P

I've read all 4 of the books. I liked Deception Point, but most people I know didn't like that as much as others. I thought Angels and Demons was quite a bit better than Da Vinci Code too. Digital Fortress is a computer-focused thing and my memory is that it is pretty understandable, but it's been a while and I know some computer/science stuff from other reading, so I don't know for sure how you'd find it.

As you go through the novel Dan/the characters explain things for you. Much like in The DaVinci Code where Robert explains how certaint hings work and so on and so forth

^ Thanks for the info - maybe I will give it a go, but I must admit all that art/history/language/religion stuff held more excitement for me than omputers and science. :P
