Publisher's Summary

Jason Bourne needs to regain his life as David Webb, so he accepts an invitation from his beloved mentor, Dominic Specter, to join the Linguistics department at Georgetown. It's a relief to leave the Bourne identity behind, but Jason soon finds himself in a life-or-death confrontation in which every move might be his last.

Specter tells him that a former student and son of his old friend was killed by Muslim extremists known as the Eastern Brotherhood. Their leader is a man named Semian Icoupov, and he must be stopped because his next terrorist target is believed to be right here in America.

While Jason is busy pursuing Icoupov in Russia, he's become a target himself.

Inside CI, a battle is brewing for control over the agency. In order to show the incompetence of its current director, two Pentagon operatives plan to accomplish what CI never could: hunt Bourne down and destroy him.

    "Dissapointing"

    About my least favorite audiobook to date. There are too many sound effects that detract from the story. They actually take your attention away from the reading of the story. The narrators foreign accents also are not very convincing and they all seem to sound the same. The story in itself isnt bad, but it can be a hard listen.

    "What was the plot again?"

    OMG - are you kidding me? The first of the new trilogy - Amazing. The 2nd - so so. Does this guy write screen plays because the 3rd book in the series - BLOWS! I had no idea what the real plot of the book was. All in all I think the story was too big for the author.

    "THEY CHANGED THE CHARACTER??"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one who enjoyed the first four boooks


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nelson Demille Plumb Island


    What didn’t you like about Jeremy Davidson’s performance?

    Not my Favorite


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a good book, It just wasn't Jason Bourne


    Any additional comments?

    They butchered this Character and his backstory.In the first four books Jason couldn't speak Russian... Now he is fluent. After the Bourne Legacy, do you think he would EVER send his kids away to Maries Mom and Dad especially after loosing their mom. IF he send them to stay for a while, it would be with Maries Brother Jon.At the end of the Bourne Legacy Jason was ???54 ish??? and feeling his age. How did he get younger?The first four books used "CIA"... why the change to "CI" ?JUMPED THE SHARK

    I'm a pilot who loves to fly! I've found Audible very useful while I work out and do other activities where I can not hold a book but can listen.

    "Get rid of the sound effects and music!"
    Any additional comments?

    The good job the narrator does is completely undone by the cheesy sound effects and added ambient “mood” music which is slipped in throughout the book during selected parts. I found this very annoying and distracting. Some of the vocal distortions they add also make it hard to hear, forcing me to rewind a bit. If I wanted sound effects and music I would simply watch a movie!

    "A disapointment"

    A waist of time. I used to admire the Bourne books, but this one is not matching their standards. Also, the audio special effects are idiotic.

    "below average for this series"

    ... the whole book is much more confusing to hear than the other ones. I do not recommend it.

    "Not too bad"

    I don't understand why all the people seem to think this was such a horrible book. I thought it was very interesting, face paced and entertaining. I knew when I bought the book that it wasn't Robert Ludlum, so I wasn't expecting the same caliber of book that Ludlum would have written. Taken for what it is, it was a very entertaining book, well written, and engaging.

    "Not Ludlum"

    My mouth was almost watering at the prospect of a new "Bourne" adventure. Lustbader has a story that could have stood on it's own, yet he chose to ride on a successful storyline. I'm afraid for me this was a case of "Stolen" Identity.

    "A let down from the spirit of the legacy"

    Bourne is positioned to become a legacy. This book does not however keep to the level of intensity, intimacy and depth of character that Bourne has become known for.

    I'd hang on for the next book.
