    Well, this was the worst book I ve read in a long time Where to start It s bloated, racist and dull The scenery is a bit interesting and the plot from the first hundred pages or so appeared just convoluted enough that I wanted to see what happened in the end, or I would have been done with this book by the end of half an hour But I soldiered onIn the end, the book was far less interesting than the Bourne Identity, perhaps because there was less for Bourne to do as the man being manipulate Well, this was the worst book I ve read in a long time Where to start It s bloated, racist and dull The scenery is a bit interesting and the plot from the first hundred pages or so appeared just convoluted enough that I wanted to see what happened in the end, or I would have been done with this book by the end of half an hour But I soldiered onIn the end, the book was far less interesting than the Bourne Identity, perhaps because there was less for Bourne to do as the man being manipulated rather than manipulating everyone else Characters also really suffered here Bourne s internal conflict was just a throwback to the previous novel, and we waste approximately 300 pages on his split personality ramblings Marie was far less formidable than in Identity Really, only one character emerged in this book who was genuinely interesting Echo, Philippe d Anjou, returns from the previous novel, seemingly a different character, this time aroundof a magnificent old commando bastard and mentor figure Alexander Conklin also gets some magnificent old CIA bastard screentime This was worthwhile.As for Ludlum s take on Asia, Asians and Asian politics the term facepalm seems most appropriate Nearly every Asian character is a stock stereotype Bribe the avaricious Chinese is basically the main way the plot moves forward Oriental is a frequent noun, there s racist language, and all the characters involved in political plotting on the Chinese side are fanatics inspired by the Cultural Revolution Oh, and there s a kung fu sidekick, who teams up with Bourne after he is defeated, obviously.Finally, as a Canadian I was annoyed by Ludlum s basic failure of continuity from the first book and massive factual errors Calgary is not in Ontario Calgary is really not in Ontario.If I owned this book as a physical object rather than a digital file, I could have chucked it against a wall But that would break my Kindle What a pity

    2 in the Bourne trilogy This book didn t have some of the elements that made the first one so great, but it had a few things that weren t there in the first book that I liked, namely the distinct seperation of David Webb, the mild mannered husband and Jason Bourne, the highly trained killing machine who cares for nothing but himself Ludlum actually creates three different characters in the same body David Webb, Jason Bourne and Delta , Webbs codename during his time as a heartless American 2 in the Bourne trilogy This book didn t have some of the elements that made the first one so great, but it had a few things that weren t there in the first book that I liked, namely the distinct seperation of David Webb, the mild mannered husband and Jason Bourne, the highly trained killing machine who cares for nothing but himself Ludlum actually creates three different characters in the same body David Webb, Jason Bourne and Delta , Webbs codename during his time as a heartless American guerrilla fighter in early 70 s Vietnam.The story sarts with , who has Webb had 5 years of peace and therapy and has mostly put his past as the psuedo assassin Jason Bourne and his chaotic years in Vietnam behind him Suddenly he is plunged back into the covert ops world that he has been trying to forget This time, allied with his once enemy and long time friend Alex Conklin no, he doesn t die in the first book like in the movies , he must fly to Asia and kill a new assassin who is using the name of Jason Bourne What I liked most about this book was the inner struggle between Webb and Bourne Webb is weak and slow, but he is capable of emotions like love and empathy Bourne on the other hand is a void of emotions, with the exception of hate and anger, and is highly effective for it As the story goes on you see less and less of Webb andof Bourne By the end, Webb is virtually gone, and Bournes anger and hate gives way to Delta , who was the origianl killer, a persona so filled with rage at losing his first family during Vietnam that he joined an American guerrilla force just to be able to kill This part of the story kept me enthralled through the entire book Also, in this book you see Bourne as a hunter, and not running for his life He appearsclever and deft in this book than in the first The cons in this book were about the same as the first The characters talked way too much and it felt like they kept going on tangents that weren t really important to the story And Webb and Marie reached whole new levels of romantic barf ness during this book But overall , I still loved this one It wasn t quite as complex as the first book, but there wasaction in it It wasof an in your face kinda action suspense book, but it came off great I recommend it to anyone

    I guess whoever likes reading, or even knows how to read, should or would surely already have read the Bourne series The first book that I d read many many years ago, changed my life for the better I have this habit of implementing the learnings of what I read in practical life.The second book, The Bourne Supremacy, though its learnings cannot be implemented in real life unless you are in danger, but I m sure I could use those when I do get in trouble some time Every paragraph of this book I guess whoever likes reading, or even knows how to read, should or would surely already have read the Bourne series The first book that I d read many many years ago, changed my life for the better I have this habit of implementing the learnings of what I read in practical life.The second book, The Bourne Supremacy, though its learnings cannot be implemented in real life unless you are in danger, but I m sure I could use those when I do get in trouble some time Every paragraph of this book hits you with a surprise learning or twist If you readers have a habit of putting yourself in the protagonist s shoes, I m sure, you wouldn t know what YOU would do if such life threatening situation count days or months or lifetime presents itself to you This book shows the extent of dirty politics and not just that of the politicians, but bureaucratic politics as well and how to read it I could related to the politics to my days as a working professional.Some details I couldn t understand because I m not a finance person,so, because I dont much understand international economics or international affairs But the book makes it easy to understand how any changes in one country could affect the international affairs especially after witnessing the tumbling of gold prices after one small European country sold its complete gold stock.The only reason it took me to read this book so many days was because I was reading 3 books at a time, which I dont usually do

    My first thought will give you an idea of how this book reads I am so happy to be done with it The plot is terribly complex and if you are clueless about the Far East China and try to follow it, good luck to you The book and the movie are not similar and this is one of the rare instances where I found the movie better than the book In the movie, his wife is killed right away Not so in the book The wife annoyed me to no end Here s what I thought of that As for the economic genius , Marie My first thought will give you an idea of how this book reads I am so happy to be done with it The plot is terribly complex and if you are clueless about the Far East China and try to follow it, good luck to you The book and the movie are not similar and this is one of the rare instances where I found the movie better than the book In the movie, his wife is killed right away Not so in the book The wife annoyed me to no end Here s what I thought of that As for the economic genius , Marie St Jacques, I find it astounding that to conceal her appearance, all she has to do is 1 push back her gorgeous red hair, 2 not wear makeup, 3 wear flats instead of heels, 4 not wear form fitting clothing Wow instantly unrecognizable So I guess she normally has a red Afro, wears clown makeup, 9 inch heels, and a body suit You know a man is writing this If Marie is so smart then why do her stupid clues not work with Bourne but alert McAllister And my God could she beobvious Maple tree She s Canadian for Pete s sake Finally, I liked Bourne and D Anjou working together It reminded me of Anakin and Obi Wan Kenobe

    First and foremost, this book has absolutely nothing to do with the movies that recently came out Sure, they share the same title, but let me reassure you, they have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the movie The only thing that is kept from the book and transferred into the movie is the fact that Bourne is killers killer if you don t believe me, just watch the movie He kills a man with a TOWEL All that being said, I found this to be a quite enjoyable book It takes place in China Apparently First and foremost, this book has absolutely nothing to do with the movies that recently came out Sure, they share the same title, but let me reassure you, they have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the movie The only thing that is kept from the book and transferred into the movie is the fact that Bourne is killers killer if you don t believe me, just watch the movie He kills a man with a TOWEL All that being said, I found this to be a quite enjoyable book It takes place in China Apparently, someone has taken up the Jason Bourne monniker and started assassinating Triad members The real Jason Bourne whose real name is David Webb is, to say the least, furious and this fury is further fueled by the kidnapping of his wife, Marie After that, David Webb goes back to being Bourne in order to find his wife and to kill the man who is impersonating him I really enjoyed this book because it keeps the sense of action that movies have It also is really suspenseful and keeps you glued to the page I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys espionage novels

    The second novel in the original Bourne Trilogy and Mr Ludlum is really getting the hang of this character It is almost as if the fictional Jason Bourne is now living a life of his own and the author is just along for the ride Mainly set in Hong Kong and China the almost supernatural spy is leaving a trail of destruction and we are never really sure who is actually in control of actions and consequences Ludlum truly was a master of the genre If you liked the Bourne Identity then pick this up The second novel in the original Bourne Trilogy and Mr Ludlum is really getting the hang of this character It is almost as if the fictional Jason Bourne is now living a life of his own and the author is just along for the ride Mainly set in Hong Kong and China the almost supernatural spy is leaving a trail of destruction and we are never really sure who is actually in control of actions and consequences Ludlum truly was a master of the genre If you liked the Bourne Identity then pick this up no doubt worth your reading time

    I didn t care all that much for the first one, and this one was worse What a heap of convoluted nonsense, replete with clich s and ridiculous dialogue And if I had a euro for every time a Chinese characters was referred to as the Oriental Ugh Suffice it to say, I did a lot of skimming to get through this.
