Jason Bourne. He has no past. And he may have no future. His memory is blank. He only knows that he was flushed out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues. A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium -- maybe code words. Initial: "J.B." And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and, at last, a name: Jason Bourne. But now he is marked for death, caught in a maddening puzzle, racing for survival through the deep layers of his buried past into a bizarre world of murderous conspirators -- led by Carlos, the world's most dangerous assassin. And no one can help Jason Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him.

Two stars because it was just okay. I really wanted to love this book. I began this book thinking that it would be a no-brainer win for me. I am completely obsessed with the movies, so I believed that I would feel the same about the books. Even though I knew that the books would be different, I ...
Wow, by the end of chapter one I was already thinking this was one of the most ludicrous novels I've ever read. And given that I've been reading through a suspense novel recommendation list, with such doozies as Vince Flynn's Term Limits, Brad Thor's The Lions of Lucerne and Matthew Reilly's Ice Sta...
Und nun ist einer der seltenen Fälle eingetreten: Ich finde eine Buchverfilmung besser als das dazugehörige Buch. Dabei kann man bei den Bourne-Verfilmungen nicht von einer richtigen Buchverfilmung sprechen, da die Unterschiede zwischen Buch und Film zu groß sind. Gemeinsam haben beide, dass Jason B...
