Digital Fortress

She kept her phone down, took a deep breath and got up to order their usual coffee.
He immediately picked up her phone to check his best friend’s depressed behaviour.
But the phone was password protected. Empty password box stared at him, as expected. She would have been foolish to have kept it without one. For this wasn’t just her phone but her digital diary. The deepest emotions were shared here, raw and real.
After four tries he typed in last hope: “lifeisneverfair” and saw her digital fortress melt.
What he read next shook his world, she had been fired.

My theme is READER’S IMAGINATION: you hear a book’s name and your imagination takes you the world of your own. The world your imagination creates which is totally different than the world which author has created in the book.


Digital Fortress –Β Dan Brown

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 and 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 ingeniously complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence. Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but also for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves. Β Digital Fortress

  1. Oh poor girl πŸ™
    After reading this, I am changing my digital diary’s password to a more complex one πŸ˜› Yes, I do maintain one πŸ˜‰

  2. I am not the one to password protect my phone but if I ever do it, my passwords would be easiest to crack. I just cant create good complex passwords πŸ˜€

  3. oh wow- well told story, felt sorry for her.. But maybe he should have waited for her to tell him, and not peep on her phone..?

  4. I think there are pros and cons to having a password on a cellphone and obviously this is one. However, I am amazed he could crack her code, that code, such a code! πŸ˜‰ I have yet to read Digital Fortress though I have read his other books and enjoyed them thoroughly. πŸ™‚ <3
