Loved these books
on 21 June 2014
I've been reading these books for years, so whilst I haven't bought this particular set I have read all of the books included in it.
The first thing I would say is that they are very different from the films. The films have taken the basic premise of a spy with amnesia and set it in the modern world with modern issues, whereas the original book was written in 1980 when the world was a different place. I'm a fan of both the films and the books, but they are very different.
Secondly, I think the books that were written by Robert Ludlum are classics. However, after Ludlum's death Lustbader took over the characters the standard dropped, albeit slightly. Whilst Ludlum's stories all seemed more or less plausible, some of the Lustbader books just didn't. That said, they are still very good books although towards the end it is clear that the series is getting a bit tired and has probably been stretched far enough (although I know another one has ust been released, which I will of course read!). That said, they are all entertaining books and I enjoyed reading every one of them.
£10 is extremely good value too! You can't really go wrong!
