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.

©1987 Robert Ludlum; (P)2008 Random House

    "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.

    Story
    "Lost interest about half way through"

    The Bourne Identity held my interest pretty tightly throughout because of the personal urgency I felt about Bourne. I wanted him to succeed, and with each wave of adversity, I was rooting for him.

    In Supremacy, it started out the same way but then Ludlum tries to paint with a larger brush of international intrigue, and suddenly, or rather, bit by bit, I began to care less. It's as if Bourne steps a bit into the background, giving way to a host of less interesting characters.

    I still recommend the first one and I won't go for the third one. I'll watch the movies a fifth time instead.

    "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!

    "Ok, but the movies are better"

    I wanted to give this book 2.5 stars. I rounded up out of respect for the author.

    It is rare that I think a movie is better than the book, but it's true here. I listened to the first book, The Bourne Identity, and felt the same way. I was disappointed, but thought maybe Ludlum was just figuring out where he wanted to go with the character, so I bought the second book with the same result. I was looking for a series to fill the void until the next book in the Mitch Rapp series is released - I'll keep looking. I thought the characters were too over the top and that it was too much of a love story. It got old really fast listening to Bourne talk to himself saying things like "Oh, God, Marie. My dearest love, Marie" and saying it in a way that made him sound like a high school student who just got dumped. I don't think this was the narrator's fault.

    "Incredible espionage story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's gripping and realistic. I imagine that this is possibly what modern day espionage is.


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

    Yes - he grows on you.

    "Now this... is "art"!"

    Everything was perfect, from the captivating story to the professional narration.(I would recommend starting with the first book of the series " The Bourne Identity ")
