I honestly can't believe the author was serious here. This book is an absolute train wreck.
My headline, above, says it all. The writing in the book gives the impression of a precocious seventh grader, with plotting to match.
If you're familiar with the annual Bulwer-Lytton contest (which "challenges entrants to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels"), imagine a whole book crafted in this style.
Note, by the way, that I'm a fan of the series. Enough of a fan that I have stuck with it to this, the ninth entry. For me, the last. Put a pin in it, Ludlum Estate. Bourne is done.
