Worst book ever,
This review is from: The Bourne Ultimatum (JASON BOURNE) (Paperback)
Well thats 10 hours I'll never get back. the optimistic among u will perservere and hope it gets better, the sensible will put the book down, preferably in a burning pit to spare the unsuspecting charity shop book buyer, for whom will no doubt believe they have found a bargain, from the inevitable enduring pain that this story promises to deliver.
the concept of the book is excellent and what reels u in, the outcome is a muddled incomprehensible pile of steaming dung. there are constant contradictions that border on comical like when the elusive assassin bourne, invisible to his enemies and master of espionage is tracked down by his wife through an ad in a random paper. the brother in law bestowes almost worship status to the main protagonist and fires out cheesy sound bites one after the other which are enough to make you want to rip the book in two. why did i go on?
the cat and mouse game between the jackel and bourne is proposterous. not a word i use often, but the only one that fits here.
all in all, i doubt the actual author wrote this, my guess is this was written by a fifteen year old on work experience at the publishers.
i must just have a glutton for punishment or have thick skin, or maybe i am just as endurable as bourne, do yourself a favour... read somthing else.
