    In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own best-selling novels, his best-selling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy.

    Linda says: "It sure reads like a Ludlum book!"

    Overall

    First off, compellingly great narration by Scott Brick made this book a must buy!

    Story wise, at first I wasnt sure what to think. I have listened to this audio several times and I find I enjoy it more each time. However, like a few of the other reviewers, I must agree that the Bourne character is not quite on par with what Robert Ludlum created, though it is close.

    I distinctly remember wondering as Bourne was repeatedly getting seriously injured(just like in other books), one how is this guy still standing much less fighting. And two just how OLD is Jason Bourne getting now? considering the time period and technology in place when the original books were written and noticing some of the far more advanced technology present in Van Lustbader's books, Bourne should be about 60 years old! Aside from that though, this book is still highly recommended to fans of the Bourne Character.
