Scenario...you are on holiday to California, from London Heathrow, and your literary resources are exhausted! What do you do?
Buy this of course! It's awesome!!! I'd never heard of Robert Ludlum before this, so I wrote it off as another boring novel produced by some obscure author, as soonas my dad handed over the money.
I think that two thankyous are in order - one to my dad for buying me the book in the first place, and two, to Robert Ludlum for writing this engrossing masterpeice!
If you're a fan of Tom Clancy, you won't be dissapointed! Being a teenager, who plays lots of PC games, you could probably imagine it. I'm one of those that loves stories to do with assassination, complicated political plots, and plenty of action! Robert Ludlum is so descriptive about what goes on when David Webb's wife, Marie, is kidnapped in Hong Kong. Being an assassin, he must fight to find out where his wife is, and who brutally murdered the Chinese Vice-Premier in a Kowloon restaurant!
The book is well written, and I wished that I had read its prequel, The Bourne Identity, which is now a very good film.
If action, politics and conspiracies are your thing, then this is a definite addition to your christmas wish list. I, for one, am adding the other two books, before and after, to mine, and the chances are, that i'll end up getiing a whole lot more of Robert Ludlum's books.
For all of the Tom Clancy fans out there, this is guaranteed to impress you, as well as many others.

If you saw the movie(s), don't let that stop you from reading the book(s). Apart from the title, this has as little to do with the film as it's possible for a film to be. It is much more complex and far less shallow. The film was lots of fun and delivered hugely in terms of fast moving action and thrills galore. The book follows different lines, different places, with a fairly different cast. This book would have been very difficult indeed to shoot unmodified - only they took the modification process so far that you could read this and if the title had been different you'd be unaware that the book you'd just read was the source of the movie (which it wasn't, not really)

This is a good deep read but you better pay attention, all the time - or the plot's curlicues and twists could easily lose you. Been a long while since I read this, am just about to do it again on my Kindle this time.

And the above applies to all three of the books - perhaps less so with the first one, but the second and third are very "out-there" indeed - and desperately complex at times. So - apply the above advice to pay heed, or it might just lose you. Indeed its complexity makes it hard enough work that despite being a class act I've deducted one of the five stars it might otherwise have had.

Format: Paperback
Robert Ludlum's classic trilogy of novels about the legendary spy Jason Bourne and the Matt Damon films adapted from them stand slightly independent of each other. Ludlum started writing them in 1980 with Vietnam still fresh in the memory and the cold war still frostily raging. The films wisely updated the details to the twenty-first century, but retained Bourne's lethal nature and fractured memory, as well as the breathless intensity of the novels. The Bourne Identity novel and film still have relatively similar plot lines; by comparison, the novel and film of The Bourne Supremacy are totally different stories. This adds to the pleasure if you're a fan of the films trying out the books - you are in for no end of surprises, and a hell of a lot of thrills and entertainment.

It is the mid 1980s and after the events of The Bourne Identity, the man who was Jason Bourne is living under his real name of David Webb, in quiet anonymity with a job at a university. He is gradually healing from the mental and physical trauma of the past and married to Marie, the woman he met in the course of the first novel. We know that he was a highly dangerous covert operative during Vietnam, and later adopted the role of Jason Bourne to counter the lethal enemy assassin Carlos The Jackal (the real version of whom was still at large when this book was released). In the background, The People's Republic of China is making its first moves to secure control of the capitalist markets of Hong Kong, under the camouflage of its Communist regime. And a man posing as Jason Bourne is carrying out daring assassinations in Asia, where Bourne was first seen and is still feared.

The Bourne series was first seen as a film version but having now read the first two novels in the series I find that there is so much more to enjoy in reading the full story and using my own imagination.

If you was expecting to be reading the film, then your in for a surprise, a nice one I hope. The first book was completely different to the movie and this is exactly the same. The story is really good. Enjoy.

This is the second book in the Bourne series. If you've watched the films, then forget them. The films are good in their own right but they are nothing like the books, and this second book is a well crafted story that swirls you along on an impossibly possible adventure. Scary and violent in places but the violence is never overblown or dwelt on. The basic storyline keeps you on tenterhooks to the very end. I'm not normally a spy/secret agent fan (I've read two Bond books) but this is well written and deeply realistic.
