Publisher's Summary

Washington, London and Peking - terror sweeps the globe. The Vice-Premier of the People's Republic has been brutally murdered by a legendary assassin and everyone is asking the same fearful questions: Why has Bourne come back? Who is paying him? Who is next on his death list? But US officials know the shocking truth: there is no Jason Bourne. There never was. But someone has resurrected the name, and if he is not stopped, the world will pay a devastating price. Jason Bourne must live again. He must utilise his murderous skills. But this time the will to survive is not enough. This time Bourne must reign supreme...

Much better than an already good movie

Any additional comments?

Firstly the book and movie are almost separate entities and seeing/reading one should not exclude doing the other. The book is nicely structured with a rare level of dramatic irony playing out believably. The narration is good, creating different personalities for each character allowing for conversations with multiple characters to be easily followed but not pulling you out of the story with some over dramatic tone or accent. The story tends to be quite intense though and a fair level of concentration is required to follow the diverse number of characters.

Best of the series

Action, politics, psychology, complexity. Great story, keeping it tense until the end. Solid story telling from the performer.

Another gripping story.

An excellent continuation from the Bourne Identity as Jason hunts down his imitator........the major from MI6 proved to be a fascinating addition to the overall plot.

Very good interpretation, the story is ok

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bourne Supremacy: Jason Bourne Series, Book 2 to be better than the print version?

Yes

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

It's a nice reading

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the asian characters are very well represented: the accent and the way of speaking is perfect

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

actually, the book didn't move me; personally I prefer the first book

Class and just as exciting as the read

What did you love best about The Bourne Supremacy: Jason Bourne Series, Book 2?

The story is told just as riveting as reading it when I did. really enjoyed this.

What did you like best about this story?

It is just a well told story with many twists and turns that make sense. If you like the political thriller with intrigue, you will love it.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

great again, only Marie's accent not quiet there but it is a women's voice so that is understandable.

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

I could feel my anticipation and 'edge of seat' tension many times through out.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend if you are a Bourne fan or fan of this genre

Enjoyed it

Book 2:- narrator cuts the mustard as usual.
Plot:- Bourne gets into many death defying situations, but they were not overcooked. The motivation behind his current situation is once again borne out of manipulation, but with his split personality he thrives on death and destruction as Jason but on humanness as Webb...must be dreadful to be so conflicted.
Rather more swearing in this one, but most of it did reflect the emotion of the moment.

The Second of the story so far.

I was ok untill the last 3 chapters a bit repetitive of the story.
Ok but will listen to the next book, and hope to not be to dissatisfied with the whole of the story.

Got better

This story got better as it went along. It took me a few days to listen to it but so different from the movie. This had more depth.
