Best book ever. Robert Ludlum is quite a genius to have created a character like Jason Bourne. The book is loaded with intense emotions - pain, hatred, jealousy, unstoppable madness. Just when you think that the end is close unforeseen complication arise and the events catapult out of control. Detailed, crisp writing keep the interest tight and in place throughout the 3 books. A must read for everyone. Bourne, i must say is the finest fictional creation ever. ( )

Wonderful action mystery intrigue! The books were so good that at first I refused to watch the movies and when I finally did I was upset disappointed and bitter hehe. Maybe the movies were ok but if they'd really been based on the books they could have been sooo much better! ( )

Great late night reads

The movies really have nothing on these books. The Bourne Identity is really so much more than what the movie shows and the ending is far more thrilling. The later books are not as intense but the endless action that Jason Bourne chases and runs from keeps these a great read overall. ( )

Wow - i think Robert Ludlum has a fantastic imagination and writes a brilliant thriller. I didn't think the book could match the films, but they did and were so very different. This book was not a quick read, and i couldnt help but read another chapter, and just one more. I have just finished this book and miss it already. Fabulous. ( )

THE BOURNE IDENTITY: He has no past. And he may have no future. His memory is blank. He only knows that he was fished out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues: evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face, a Swiss bank account containing four million dollars, and a name: Jason Bourne. But he is marked for death, racing for survival through the layers of his buried past into a world of murderous conspirators - led by the world's most dangerous assassin, Carlos. And no one can help Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him. THE BOURNE SUPREMACY: In a Kowloon Cabaret, scrawled in a pool of blood, is a name the world wanted to forget: Jason Bourne. The Chinese vice-premier has been slain by a legendary assassin. World leaders ask the same fearful questions: Why has Jason Bourne come back? Who is the next to die? But US officials know the truth: there is no Jason Bourne. The name was created as cover for David Webb on his search for the notorious killer Carlos. Someone else has taken the Bourne identity and unless he is stopped, the world will pay a devastating price. So Jason Bourne must live again. THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM: The world's two deadliest spies in the ultimate showdown.Two men, each mysteriously summoned by telegram, witness a bizarre killing. The telegrams are signed Jason Bourne. Only they know Bourne's true identity and understand the telegram is really a message from Bourne's mortal enemy, Carlos, the world's deadliest and most elusive terrorist. And they also know that he wants a final confrontation with Bourne. Now David Webb must do what he hoped he would never have to do again - assume the terrible identity of Jason Bourne.
