Publisher's Summary

Jason Bourne takes on a mission to rescue his only friend in the CIA, Martin Lindros, who disappeared in Africa while tracking shipments of yellowcake uranium. Once safely back in America, Lindros persuades Bourne to help track the money trail of terrorists buying the nuclear material in Odessa.

But once there, Bourne is hampered by confusing flashbacks of unfamiliar places and events, and he wonders: is someone brainwashing him in order to throw him off the trail? Worse, is the man he saved in Africa really Martin Lindros? Now, Bourne is alone, gathering evidence while trying to stay one step ahead of the terrorists who won't let anyone stand in the way of destroying the United States.

Hated the music and sound effects but good story

Simply listening to the story without the music and sound effects is more desirable. Sometimes the music and effects made it so I could not hear the narrator.

Best Bourne book so far

I began listening to the series and was surprised to hear how different that they were from the movie. The twists,turns and details of this book would make a great script

They finally killed Bourne, to me.

Ridiculous plot.
Ridiculous narration:
Badguys sound like Dark Helmet (Spaceballs)
Southern/Black accents were utterly offensive
Old Man voice sounds like Igor Stravinsky (Fletch)

Cheesy music

It was a decent story line but what is with the cheesy music? It was very distracting!

Clever Bourne

I'm a fan of this series. It is a good spy thriller with some good twists and turns. I'd highly recommend this to spy thriller fans. Some of the twists can be assumed prior to it happening, but still a great story.

Always a good story!

Great thriller! Must listen to before the movie is in theaters! Matt Damon is Bourne!
I hope the movie is as good as the book!!

Bourne sticks it to the feds.

Where does Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best I have listened to in my library so far.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is of course Bourne. Since he is always a target for death by the united states government, it is nice to see him stick it to them, When he saves central intelligence from being destroyed, he doesn't want the credit from the people he never trusted.

What about Jeremy Davidson’s performance did you like?

His reading gives you a new perspective on the novel. He does this by providing a middle eastern, and British accent when they are called for.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My only reaction was laughter at the central intelligence director when he has to depend on Bourne, treats him like an agent, and then puts a sanction on him.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend all of the books in the series.

An example of when 0 stars would be appropriate.

A brutal waste of time and money. Absolutely unbelievable at times and so far away from the original Bourne concept that it should be illegal to say it is part of the series.

Great story...goofy sound effects

I love the Bourne series and this is a great book. The narration was read well but the sound effects were incredibly cheesy.
