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.

©1984 Robert Ludlum; (P)2008 Random House Audio

    "Great, but…"

    This book was nothing like the movie. If you expected to be don't get it. But if you do get it it's a riveting story much better than the movie. I saw the movie and it was great, but this book is 100 times better.

    "A truly great book "

    A truly great book . I read this book for the first time during Dessert Storm in the Marine Corps. I still enjoy it very much and wish they would have followed the books for the movies.

    I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.

    Story
    "Bad book and plot by a well known author"

    I heard so much about the movie which I never saw I decided to listen to the book instead. The best way to sum it up is that Ludlum had had a good story in his mind but could not convey it into words 22 hours could and should have been cut to 12 hours The ending was a total mess

    For those of you that like counter terrorism and Ciara plots. Read Vince Flynns Mitch rap series.

    "Definitely not the movie"

    Believe it or not, in this instance, I liked the movie better. Very long. Not very likable.

    "Gripping tale"

    The story is remarkably thrilling and interesting. Could not let go of the earpiece. And the vocal variety of Scott Brick is an icing on the cake.

    Story
    "Good fun, but now I won't like the movie anymore."

    Well narrated, very deep, engaging story. It may take a re-read to absorb everything, but it was worth it. My only regret being that I cannot watch the movies anymore for how simple it is.

    Story
    "Same title, different story!"

    Scott brick doesn't excellent job narrating the book. All of his accents are spot on and he speaks very clearly. As for the title, the story told in the book is extremely different from the one portrayed in the movie. The only similarity between the story of the book and the movie is that they're both about it amnesiac named Jason who has a girlfriend named Marie. That's it. As for the book, it's filled with action from start to finish and all the same and wonderful intrigue but I loved from the movie. I would give this book 100 stars if it were allowed and I definitely recommend this book!
