I read Angels and Demons after DaVinci Code, and I don't think it really makes any difference which one you read first. Even though his books do have similar plot lines, and some huge overarching conspiracy against the entire world, I am still glued to them. I like how he writes.

Digital Fortress has to do with an unbreakable computer algorithm. It's a little old fashioned to read now, but still gripping. (Not done with it yet! Don't tell me the ending!!!)

Deception Point is set in the frozen (arctic? antarctic? I am SO bad with memory these days) and 'something' that is found in the ice. That's actually my second favorite book of Dan Brown's so far.



I read DaVinci Code first, then Deception Point followed by Digital Fortress. (All three were gifted to be by my dad, he bought them all but didn't feel like keeping them.) Unfortunately I saw one preview for the movie before I read the book, so I already has Tom Hanks's face on the Langdon character. I'd really have preferred to come up with one on my own.

I'm looking to read Angels & Demons next, but I'll probably grab it from the library. I saw it in paperback and was this >< close to buying it, but I stopped myself. I don't have room to store tons of books.

If you like the codes in Digital Fortress, you might like PopCo. It's a completely different story, but has lots of coding.
