    "Wish I could give it 10 Stars!!!"

    Fantastic listen: Entertaining, Exciting and Captivating. Better than 'Bourne Identity' (didn't think that was possible}. Can't say enough. Don't expect to hear what you saw on the screen (two different stories - both unbelievable). If I sound like a Bourne enthusiast, you're right. Wish that Ludlum were still alive and writing.

    "Great Read! Better than the Movie!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, I would love to see the actual Ludlum storyline used in a remake of these movies! Completely shocked me to see the extreme difference between the movie and this story!


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

    Have listened to all of the first three bourne books and he does a great job!


    Any additional comments?

    If you are on the edge of listening or reading, listen! Nothing compares!

    "still no CIA coverup"

    Robert Ludlum has done a great job showing of the dangers of the CIA doing something so dangerous that miss information and manipulations of David Webb will lead to a mess.

    when someone is pretending to be Jason bourne the real jason is tricked into hunting the old jason down. bring him in and find things out. but when the CIA is to scared to ask David for his help they kidnap his wife. bad move. so now David has to go to China and hunt down a man trained to kill just like bourne would pretend to kill.

    but the CIA have things go wrong very fast and so disaster strikes all over.

    Story
    "Far Too Complicated"
    What would have made The Bourne Supremacy better?

    Not sure what could make this story better except maybe cutting it in half. I really enjoy long stories and do not read books with simplistic plots. However, this book was beyond difficult to follow - too many characters and too many subplots. Nothing was as it seemed, so it felt as though it should have been in the fantasy category. Disappointing.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Ludlum’s story?

    It was entirely too long becasue the author created too many characters and subplots.


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

    There have been an occasion or two when I've selected a book because Scott has been the narrator! Scott could read a phone book and make it sound great. He always turns in a terrific performance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Major disappointment. So much so that I'm returning this book. No sense in keeping it since I will NEVER listen to it again!


    Any additional comments?

    Unless your mind resides in the rabbit hole, don't bother with this tome.

    "Needs work"

    Had to keep rewinding in order to understand what was going on in the story. End was anti-climatic.

    I can't wait to round out the trilogy. Not always the best book, but always intriguing and enjoyable

    It's a bit longer than it needed to be, but was still very good. Do it.

    "Bourne's Superman is better than most"

    I really don't like the portrayal of Marie but it didn't keep me from finishing the book -- I just had to take a few breaks.

    "Where did the Movie come from????"
    If you could sum up The Bourne Supremacy in three words, what would they be?

    Different but Astounding


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book but Marie drove me up the wall. I know why the movies killed her.
