Probably not from Robert Ludlum, but I've always liked Scott Brick's reading.
He did a great job on all of the French in the book and there was way too much of it.
Less French, more action. If you loved the movie, you'll hate the book. The only thing in common was a few character names.
I usually stay up too late listening to audio books because they are so good. With this book, I kept falling asleep. Then, the next night, I'd have to go back and see where I fell asleep. The main character keeps thinking the same phrase over and over and over and over again. It was very annoying.
I love to listen to many novels in the star wars series,Stephen king novels, history, and biographies as well.
I loved the middle of the book when Bourne starts to put his identity together, and then the action of the book really begins.
I loved the ending of the book. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't listened yet.
I really couldn't give you just one character, but Brick really makes you think you are in France with his french accent.
Yes, the very end of the book when Bourne realizes who he is and tells Marie :My name is David."
Even though this book is a little slow to start as far as action is concerned, I would recommend all of the books in the series.
I couldn't take the cheesy plot and even more so, the narrator's HORRIBLE fake French female accent. the thought of hearing that voice for the entire trilogy made me give up 3 hours into the first book. it's a shame that the movies are soooooo good, but the books arent
I was really hoping for a gripping book that was more exciting than the movie. Its easy to get lost in the narration and its not that exciting. I know the general premise of the book because I have seen the movie 1000 times. That is what is getting me through it. I am half way through...hope I make it the rest of the way.
The ubiquitous pay phone does not diminish the story in the least; highly effective story telling that has not aged a bit.
Good but different. I'm a huge fan of the movie and the subsequent sequels. The book moves at an entirely different pace, much slower. There are a couple of plot elements which are in line with the movie, but the story, the entire story is very different than the movie.
this is one of the rare cases where a screenplay manages to overtake the book. the film is a man vs his own government. this is more spy vs spy. I enjoyed it overall.
