I loved Ludlum's original Bourne series and while this is not quite there, Lustbader keeps the pace going. While you can guess what turns and twist are coming, it's an ideal book for a couple of days escapism following Bourne working with an old enemy trying to get the better of a brutal rogue FSB agent. While some of the action is a bit far fetched, I kept saying this is escapism, fiction, not reality. If you like your thrillers fast paced and full of action this will work for you. If you like your thrillers more authentic then pass on it.

Feels like a lazy repeat, the plotting is predictable, every turn is a betrayal, again & again & again. More twists don't make for an interesting read. Must have been written to a schedule, planned by analysts with "more is better" as their only criteria. Dull.

I feel there is the smell of tills ringing with the way these Bourne books are desigend and sold/marketed. The original Bourne books by Ludlum were crisp, fast paced, technically interesting and dragged you along for the ride. I saw this on the bookstall at the airport and bought it on the basis that it was another Ludlum Bourne novel and was looking forward to a good holiday read. What I got was a 'con-job' with the Bourne brand taken over by an Eric Lustbader, the story is flabby and unconvincing, the behaviour of the motely crew of spies and spooks is laughable with little authenticity of the original. I really felt like giving up after yet another laboured plot twist and betryal that was unexplained and seemingly little to do with the plot context. I would reccomend you stay clear of this and lets just hope that a better Ludlum ghost writer comes along who can do a better job than Mr Lustbader!

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Aug. 2011
Format: Hardcover
"Those also who seek my life lay snares for me;
Those who seek my hurt speak of destruction,
And plan deception all the day long." -- Psalm 38:12 (NKJV)

In The Bourne Dominion, Jason Bourne, the world's best-loved, amnesia-plagued assassin once again shows himself to be a rarity in the secret world, someone who can be trusted to do the right thing. If you miss having Jason Bourne in the middle of the killing fields, The Bourne Dominion provides some entertaining action and plot twists revolving around the themes of identity and trust. Be warned that the main story starts slowly and is deceptive in its apparent predictability. The pace and your interest will pick up quite a bit around the middle and will be well sustained by the end.

Author Eric Van Lustbader does a fine job of allowing Jason Bourne to notice what everyone else misses . . . and to take appropriate action at the right time. It's the book's most appealing feature to me. Almost as good are the ways that combatants are able to escape seemingly impossible situations in ways that don't stretch credibility too far.

The book has several story lines with changing narrators, which helps to keep the overall plot picture balanced. It's also a nice way to add some thrills by leaving key characters in cliffhanging situations.

Mr. Lustbader's weakness is that he doesn't get inside of Bourne's psyche in the ways that would make the book come alive and be more intriguing. Perhaps that aspect of his writing will improve in future books.

#9 in the Jason Bourne series. Bourne battles a secret cabal that controls many governments.

P.15 "California with the largest deposit of rare earths outside of China"
It now seems that Greenland can claim that distinction.

Error p.76 " the Southern Hemisphere sun..." Bourne is between Bogota and Cali which are north of the equator.

Error p.334 "Damascus..between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers" Actually hundreds of kilometres away.

The more books he writes on Bourne, the more complicated they become, the first 4 were brilliant reading, most of my friends feel the same, I have just the last one to read, as I will not give up, I just hope that there will be no more now

Like other readers I bought this book believing it would be comparable to the Ludlum Bourne books but ended up with a clumsy, twisting, inaccurate pile of junk. I found myself shouting at the book in places as it made no sense and had huge technical errors in it. I assume it was written to a deadline with little proofing. Not one to recommend to anyone. V POOR.

I bought this at Gatwick and started to read it on a longish flight, but gave up. Tried again on holiday, but failed. Tried at home on a weekend, without success. The plot swings everywhere, leaving the reader struggling. I found it nonsense. I never managed to finish this book - so the last part might be better.
