  1. 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 guerr [...]

  2. 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 rathe [...]

  3. 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 [...]

  4. 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 Jacqu [...]

  5. 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, someon [...]

  6. 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 [...]

  7. Once again, utterly forget all of the movies While book 1 of this series is superior, this is still a top notch book Ludlum knows how to keep the tension brewing Once again, the protagonist s psychology inner conflict is a great element of the tale I highly recommend this book it s nothing like a dumb action movie book SPOILER ISH ISSUE BELOW One peeve A thing I really never got The Ambassador who manipulated David never convinced me that David was truly necessary for this mission Sure, David s [...]

  8. That difficult middle book in a trilogy This time, Bourne is tricked into heading to Hong Kong to track down his kidnapped wife Except it s all a government plot to get him to assassinate a rogue Chinese leader who is threatening the stability of the region.A frantic chase across the US, China and Hong Kong Involving the Chinese, American and British secret services This book was pretty un put down able including several late nights where my arms were unable to support the book any Sadly the en [...]

  9. The first 100 and the last 100 pages were great The 400 pages in the middle were kind of slow The book is totally different from the movie The book takes place in China in the late 70s and is premised on how the world will pretty much end if China tries to take over Hong Kong before 1998 Nothing like an out dated international crisis to get the blood pumping I m just glad to have finished this book I read it over the course of 2 years.

  10. Far fetched but entertaining Towards the end, it felt like the story had dragged on for too long One glaring error the citizens of Hong Kong speak Cantonese, not Mandarin Mr Ludlum s transliteration of the Chinese made them all sound like they were speak Mandarin This is an important political distinction during this sensitive time for Hong Kong.

  11. Anyone looking for a book that mirrors the adaptation that made Matt Damon the new spy fatale can move along and not read the rest of this review Hollywood chose to keep the name of Ludlum s second book in the series, but make it much thrill centred and nothing like what I remember of the movie Alas, it goes to show that bombs and sex sells, while honest to goodness thriller books, set in a time before GPS technology and the like, seem to wither on the vine I must say that while the book was a [...]

  12. And the legend is back In this Bourne instalment the chameleon Jason returns to the spy assassin game when his wife, Canadian economist, Marie, is kidnapped by a Chinese taipan who means serious business Jason moves heaven and earth to get her back, which means leaving his gentle alter ego, David, behind and embracing the killer he tried so hard to forget, Delta, in the hunt for his successor The new Jason Bourne is out there and only the original can catch him.Behind the scenes Havilland and th [...]

  13. overall enjoyable many pages but what with the action they quite flew by weird though that there was a second mini climax like an afterthought not necessary in my opinion, the baddie could have been dealt with before the main climax would have saved 50 100 pages again my never ending gripe with thrillers i don t need a love story in it no need for oh david i love you so much, i hope i can have you back, i must have you back oh marie, i love you so much, i can t bear the thought that something mi [...]

  14. Patient, brilliant and breath stopping is this book Robert Ludlum always hooks me so easily in his well researched books that I curse myself for ever aspiring of writing one myself Sometimes, the simplest of the sentences that he frames loop me in them for minutes, while I try to understand the various other meanings he might have intended for the said.Jason Bourne is finally shown as the man with than 2 parts well at the end of the book, until when it was only hinted, and never explicitly disp [...]

  15. God, if this book could have been harder to get through, I m not sure how I read an older version, but they shouldn t even put Matt Damon s face on this thing There is basically nothing in common with this book and the movie except the name of the main character and the title Unbelievably, all the negatives of the first book were further exacerbated in this one by making the ranting 20 pages long instead of 10 and making the story into such a convoluted conspiracy that it s amazing the United St [...]

  16. When I read the first book in the series, I was a bit disappointed I had just seen the movie adaptation and my expectations for the book were rather high But a strange thing happened with the second and third books in the series while the movie adaptations got worse, the books in the series got better I consider this the midpoint in the upswing of the Jason Bourne story arc Ludlum has succeeded in introducing an interesting character, and he continually raises the bar in terms of action and exci [...]

  17. So this time instead of Europe Bourne had to run through oriental environs of Hong Kong and China to grab a killer who is killing in his name in the name of Jason Bourne And David Webb has to be Jason Bourne again in order to stop the fake assassin and to stop a terrible plan from succeeding I don t remember the movie much and intend to watch them again but I don t think that the movie went on the similar storyline Once I finish The Bourne Ultimatum I would finish the trilogy again I really like [...]

  18. As before, please read the book and forget the movie if you ve seen the movies and think you got the story you haven t Ludlum plotted and charactized a complex and well thought out storyd this may be the waekest of the series it s still far better than the recent movie.

  19. I went into this book, once again, having long since seen the movie This fortunately was an almost completely different story that in many ways would have made a compelling movie Jason Bourne is a strong character with layer after layer, and his complex existence makes these very easy to read and difficult to put down By this point, I was going out and buying all of the Bourne books out there, shocked to find out how many there were.

  21. The second installment of the Bourne series is again full of action However, the old proverb about sequels never being as good as the original is true.Wordy This book just has too many words It could be a quick two or three hundred page fast movin action packed paperback, instead of the 600 page mammoth it turned into Now, there were many scenes that put you on the edge of your seat and kept you turning those 600 pages There were the expected car chases, the identity changes, the occasional expl [...]

  22. I liked this better than the first one, even thought I had seen the movie before reading it I engaged with the characters and felt that it was faster moving and with lots of thrills, The fascination I had in the first volume with the international dimensions of this thriller were continued here and it was nice to travel to exotic faraway places in the company of such a hero Nice writing, I thought.

  23. 8 18 04 6 10The Bourne Supremacy was similar to Bourne Identity The storytelling was not all that great, making it hard to follow who knows what and where all the plot tangles are going There were also quite a few repetitive and annoying focuses like the Bourne vs Webb conflicts The premise is pretty implausible and makes a pretty flimsy backbone for the plot The plot does move along nicely though It makes for a nice roller coaster ride, albeit a shallow one The overal plot was a little too stra [...]

  24. While I have to admit to finding the book a little too long I did enjoy it than the recent film of the same name The film takes what had happened to David Webb s first wife as the starting point to remove Marie from the film so he can go rogue and go back to Europe to replay the best of scenes for the first film That is not what happens in this book thank goodness The Bourne Supremacy was published in 1986 and so the story centers around the cold war politics of the pre return of Honk Kong to t [...]

  25. This book is packed with political masterminds, psychotic killers, zealots, and other creatures that populate the dark recesses of the human mind It took me a long time to read this book, but it was well worth the time and effort to be introduced to the world of Jason Bourne once again, as well as the world of Hong Kong and the tension that existed surrounding the treaty of 1997, when the British gave control of Hong Kong to China The movies are fun, but the Jason Bourne of the books is far int [...]

  26. These books are so different from the movies The storyline isn t the same Also, the timeline is like 60 s 70 s instead of current ish It kind of makes me think of how superhero comics have alternate reality universes for the same characters Regardless of the small details, the overall is the same, lots of government and unknowns He has to figure out who is doing what to him He starts from nothing, not knowing who is against him or if anyone is on his side Everyone is shady and a possible threat [...]

  27. The Bourne Supremacy I didn t enjoy this book nearly as much as I enjoyed the previous A large part of what ruined my enjoyment was the premise, I didn t buy it Apparently Jason Bourne was the only one able to replace the other Jason Bourne and kill Sheng Why Do they not have other agents available Why would you send an agent into the field with amnesia, who is known to have debilitating flashbacks He didn t do anything that another competent agent couldn t have done I will say despite the flims [...]
