The Bourne Identity | [Robert Ludlum]

The Bourne Identity

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.

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.

    "Huge dissapointment!"

    WOW! How rare is it that Hollywood does the story better than the book?
    Brooding by Bourne that drones on and on, unbelievable decisions by characters and nearly zero literary technique equals a big waste of 2 credits! I know you are curious but don't say I didn't warn you...

    "worst narrator ever!!"

    I have downloaded other books read by Brick and could never finish them. I will make sure never to download another book with him as the narrator.!!

    "The movie was much better"

    I was very happy to find the Bourne Identity at Audible. I saw the movie years ago and had always wanted to listen to the book. Unfortunately this is one of the rare cases where the screenplay (written by Tony Gilroy and William Blake Herron) is actually much better than the original book.

    The narration is very good, but the story is very complicated (much more than the movie) and Bourne is not at all the same character we saw in the movie. The book's Bourne is a much darker and less skilled character. My advice would be to skip the book and rent the movie again.
