Publisher's Summary

A killer with no face, no identity, and a name the world wanted to forget: Jason Bourne....

Reenter the shadowy world of Jason Bourne, an expert assassin still plagued by the splintered nightmares of his former life. This time the stakes are higher than ever. For someone else has taken on the Bourne identity, a ruthless killer who must be stopped or the world will pay a devastating price.

To succeed, the real Jason Bourne must maneuver through the dangerous labyrinth of international espionage, an exotic world filled with CIA plots, turncoat agents, and ever-shifting alliances, all the while hoping to find the truth behind his haunted memories and the answers to his own fragmented past. This time there are two Bournes...and one must die.

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.

The movie and the book r so so different

Loved it definitely worth the credit. Don't think that just because you've watched the movie you know how the book goes cause there nothing alike

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.

Last chapter and half missing

I never saw the movies and thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook until I reached the climax. It stopped playing, and everything Audible told me to do did not work. I can sorta figure out that the good guy wins, but what a bummer.

Good book.

The movie ruined it for me. Jason Bourne is way more bada$$ on screen. Still a good book though.

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!

Did not live up to its predecessor.

Caution; spoilers for first and some of the second book here. I found a lot of elements that felt fine and natural in the story of the first book, but here in the second felt forced and awkward, turning into its own cliche. Many of the intuitive decisions Bourne makes are based on his amnesia and identity crisis, but once he figures out who he is and why he believed those things about himself, it doesn't make sense why he would "snap back" into this part of "him" that never actually was him. False remeberences of actions and instincts that he never had turn him into the almost superhero James Bond like assassin, but wasn't the whole point that he wasn't the assassin he thought he was? Why is he all the sudden one now? First book was awesome, but I should have left it at that.

This does not detract from the excellent performance of the narrator. For what story I did get into, it was due only to his narration, not the plot elements.

Really long listen

Scott Brick was fantastic as usual. The second book in the Bourne series is really, really long. It was like Robert Ludlum's brain shorted out and went into overdrive. It's a great story but overly complicated, and for as long as it is, the ending is rather anti-climactic.
