Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal

Jason Bourne takes on a mission to rescue his only friend in the CIA, Martin Lindros, who disappeared in Africa while tracking shipments of yellowcake uranium. Once safely back in America, Lindros persuades Bourne to help track the money trail of terrorists buying the nuclear material in Odessa. But once there, Bourne is hampered by confusing flashbacks, and he wonders: is someone brainwashing him in order to throw him off the trail? Worse, is the man he saved in Africa really Martin Lindros?

    "Excellent action adventure"

    The plot and narration were excellent. Since I had seen the Bourne trilogy in theater, I pictured Bourne as Matt Damon. Definitely a great read for Bourne fans.

    "Addictive!"

    This book gets off to a little bit of a slow start, but about 2 runs into it (I listen to audio books while I am running) you can't stop. I started out only listening to the book on my long runs, but only a few runs in, I was listening every day! Great book! Kept me running, had me at half marathon distance in no time!

    "Freaking fantastic (Again)"

    If you like the other Bourne books or Ludlum, get this book! It is every bit as good as any of the others! The plot and action are great. Just great!

    "The Bourne Betrayal"

    A book that keeps you on your toes guessing. It was a true betrayal, even bourne for once was deceived against his better judgement.

    "Dissapointed"

    I was really dissapointed with this book. The character that purports to be Jason Bourne/David Webb is not the same character I have enjoyed in the original Bourne trilogy books. The Bourne in this book is not nearly as resourceful or intelligent as the Bourne I am accustomed to in the original books. I also found this book to be very predictable and not nearly as intriguing as I had hoped. The characters were not well developed and I really didn't care all that much about any of them. Consequently, when the characters died, I really didn't care. Lastly, I felt like the author's use of profanity was excessive and gratuitous.

    "Should be a movie"

    This was probley one of the best books I have read in a while. It was very well written and read and fast action as I have seen in the Bourne movies. So if you what a fast action good reading book then this is for you.

    "I tried not to give up on it, but it is awful!"
    What disappointed you about Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal?

    I read the previous release by Eric Van Lustaber, and it was enjoyable, so I thought that this one would be similar. This was easily the worst pick in my Audible experience. I typically enjoy Baldacci, Connelly, Grisham, and Clancy, and my next purchase will be back in this group. The Bourne books/movies have been very enjoyable, but The Bourne Betrayal is just too far out there to enjoy. I kept going, "C'mon, really, now he has ice skates built into his shoes!", and other similar exasperations, based on the ridiculousness of the escapades. He can never die or get hurt, which makes this more like a Roadrunner/Coyote cartoon, rather than a suspense novel.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Baldacci or Grisham.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeremy Davidson?

    It would not be my preference.


    What character would you cut from Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal?

    The CIA director

    "A passable book that could be put down"
    Would you try another book from Eric Van Lustbader and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    I am just feeding the "Jason Bourne"obsession, but this is not that engaging.


    If you’ve listened to books by Eric Van Lustbader before, how does this one compare?

    This is slightly better than the previous Bourne Legacy.


    Did Jeremy Davidson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Mr Davidson did a good job with the text he had.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would watch it on a wet Saturday from home, but this wouldn't draw me to the theaters.

    "Great BOURNE makes you listen to the next one!"
    Where does Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best one so far of course not counting the ones introducing Jason Bourne.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot keeps you on edge because you didn't know which way it would go and if Jason was on the right course with the right person.


    Have you listened to any of Jeremy Davidson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first Jeremy Davidson's I have listened to. He was good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but once I listen to a 1/4 of it, I wanted to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to listen to the next one. I hope the author keeps them coming.

    "Hard to follow."

    I loved the Bourne movies, but this audible was hard to follow. I had to keep going back over some of the recording to stay focused. It was like having three or four books in one. That style is not bad,but I had a very hard time following them. After a few weeks I gave it up.
