Publisher's Summary

He has no past. And he may have no future. His memory is blank. He only knows that he was flushed out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues.

A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium - maybe code words. Initials: "J.B." And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and, at last, a name: Jason Bourne.

But now he is marked for death, caught in a maddening puzzle, racing for survival through the deep layers of his buried past into a bizarre world of murderous conspirators - led by Carlos, the world's most dangerous assassin. And no one can help Jason Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him.

    "Compelling and highly entertaining"

    The ubiquitous pay phone does not diminish the story in the least; highly effective story telling that has not aged a bit.

    "Very little in common with the movie"

    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.

    "honestly, the film was better"

    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.

    "Wow"

    incredible. A winding path of intrigue which does not skimp on the details. It is not a book, but a world one may enter.

    "Not as good as the movie"

    It was rather boring long and drawn out. Certainly not on par with the works of Ian Fleming.

    Story
    "Where did the movie come from?"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bourne Identity?

    I found the moments in the book where things were revealed that made all assumptions about what had happened come into question made the book more interesting.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Performance was good. There wasnt anything distracting or overdone with it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They made the film, or at least on based on the character and general plot line. I would tag it as if you read the book, you are in for a surprise.

    "I listened to the story using different speeds."

    Narrator is excellent. Story is really, really long. It's a great thriller, just long. I'm still debating on whether to listen to the next one in the Bourne series.
