This review is from: The Aquitaine Progression (Paperback)
Most the time with Robert Ludlum it is hit or miss with his books! He has never written a truly bad book, but its either a story that keeps you hooked and can not put the book down, or the book is a struggle to get through! This book falls somewhere in the middle!
Really slow to start with, but the story does pick up over time... it does have a kind of Bourne-ish feel to it, but it does not have the action you would expect from a Bourne book!
I found the book rather enjoyable, and would say that it is easily a top 10 of Ludlums books!
Only down side is the fact its a bit on the long side, with maybe just slightly to much filler material that did not need to be there, but in the end does add up to a really gripping story for you to enjoy!
