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.

    Story
    "Not too bad."

    Started slow and I was surprised by the sound effects. Once I got used to them it was fine. I wish they would have Bourne rest instead of continuing to fight even when half dead. I get that he is supposed to be a super agent but he is still human.

    Story
    "Just not the quality of the first 4"
    Would you try another book from Eric Van Lustbader and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    Yes, but only after reading reviews well after release


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Nothing. Not as good a Jason Bourne, Definitely not the performance quality of Scott Brick, and obviously an attempt to perpetuate a brand rather than continue develop characters.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was boring and just not the quality linguist that Scott Brick is. Jason Bourne lost man points because of the narrator.


    Could you see Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, but like the first 4 books, it will probably be a completely rewritten story and plot and not follow the book much at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure it's too late to save the brand from the cheap production course that it is on. Best now left up the screen writers and hope for the silver screen to make all of the money. Hope Ludlam got paid well, because his franchise is cheapened by the current format and production qualities of books 5 and on. Even book 4 was disappointing, but not as bad as 5.

    Story
    "A passable book that could be put down"
    Would you try another book from Eric Van Lustbader and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    I am just feeding the "Jason Bourne"obsession, but this is not that engaging.


    If you’ve listened to books by Eric Van Lustbader before, how does this one compare?

    This is slightly better than the previous Bourne Legacy.


    Did Jeremy Davidson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Mr Davidson did a good job with the text he had.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would watch it on a wet Saturday from home, but this wouldn't draw me to the theaters.

    Story
    "Great BOURNE makes you listen to the next one!"
    Where does Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Betrayal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best one so far of course not counting the ones introducing Jason Bourne.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot keeps you on edge because you didn't know which way it would go and if Jason was on the right course with the right person.


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

    This is the first Jeremy Davidson's I have listened to. He was good.


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

    No, but once I listen to a 1/4 of it, I wanted to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to listen to the next one. I hope the author keeps them coming.

    "Hard to follow."

    I loved the Bourne movies, but this audible was hard to follow. I had to keep going back over some of the recording to stay focused. It was like having three or four books in one. That style is not bad,but I had a very hard time following them. After a few weeks I gave it up.

    "Not like Ludlum"

    'I found this book difficult to get into. I finally finished it but I was disappointed in it. The plot seemed to have too many subplots and it was hard to keep track of them all.

    "Not quite there yet..."

    Here are the three things you have to deal with in this audio book:
    1) The narrator has a different delivery than some of the others. It needs some getting used to.
    2) The book is unnecessarily long and even though I don't like anyone deciding how to abridge my titles, this one could have benefited from a few cuts.
    3) Most of all however, this book needed an editor. The phrase "At length" is used innumerable times and there are gems such as "The evidence was evident"...

    As for the story, it's convoluted enough with quite a few surprises and bodies along the way.

    "Hated it!"

    Totally boring book. This is the first audiobook I simply ended up by deleting the whole thing. The bad people are simply too smart, too perfect, too omniscient. It was depressing, frustrating and just no fun whatsoever.

    "A movie piece"

    Why I rated this with 4 stars is because Mr. Eric Van Lustbader is the only writer who can emulate the style of Mr. Ludlum. We have Mr. Bourne as a resurrection of Rambo and Ethan Hunt (Mission Impossible)who is well versed in different languages, can disguise in the person of several main characters, crisscross the busy streets in a Ducati despite a hand grabbing his neck like a vise grip slowly depleting his supply of oxygen, submerged underwater for several minutes without gills (like in Harry Potter) and still survives, bleeding and bruised and still subdues his opponents. This book is very entertaining and is definitely made for the movies. The plot however is weak. One CIA officer disappears, rescued by Bourne, assumes his old position because Bourne tells the interrogators that without a doubt, this is Mr. Martin Lindros, his close friend. Then several high ranking officers die after Mr. Lindros assumes his old position in the CIA. Who would you think is the first suspect? Come on!. If this book has a sequel, please indulge in Mr. Bourne's intimate life. Poor guy, Marie died and he is having flashbacks and persecutions for not having saved her. He has been to shrinks and is losing his mind. Give him a break and a little spice in his life too. Soraya is one character who can change his rotten world.
