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.

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

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.

Graphic violence

I very much enjoyed the Bourne movies so wanted to read the books. The Bourne Identity was good, this one had so much swearing in it it's disappointing. The story itself is good, though, with good narration.

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.

Not a fan

I thought the book was horrible. I’m sorry. I wanted the book to be awesome; really did. It dragged on. It was boring. I ALWAYS think the books are better than the movies. Not this time. The films are so much better than the books. The books don’t follow the movies at all....I dunno. My opinion only but not a fan. And I’m not a fan of the narrator either; so boring and he puts me to sleep. Terrible

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.

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.

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.
