Publisher's Summary

Jason Bourne is one of the most popular and compelling characters in contemporary fiction. Originally created by best-selling author Robert Ludlum, the Jason Bourne series was later adapted into films that have become modern classics. Now, New York Times best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader carries on Jason Bourne's story with a new novel about the rogue secret agent who has lost his memory...The Bourne Ascendancy.
In this thrilling and absorbing new novel Jason Bourne is faced with an impossible mission. He has been hired to impersonate a high-level government minister at a political summit meeting in Qatar, shielding the minister from any assassination attempts. Suddenly, armed gunmen storm the room, killing everyone but Bourne. Their target, however, isn't the minister Bourne is Bourne himself.
Kidnapped and transported to an underground bunker, Bourne finds himself face-to-face with an infamous terrorist named El Ghadan ("Tomorrow"). El Ghadan holds as his captive Soraya Moore, former co-director of Treadstone, and a close friend to Bourne, along with her two-year-old daughter.
Meanwhile, the President of the United States is in the midst of brokering a historic peace treaty between the Israelis and the Palestinians - an event that El Ghadan is desperate to prevent. He demands that Bourne carry out a special mission: Kill the President. If Bourne refuses, Soraya and her daughter will die.
Bourne must make a monstrous choice: Save Soraya and her daughter, or save the President.

I can't believe how lame this book comes off.

What disappointed you about Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Ascendancy?

The narrator is terrible. A narrator can really ruin a good story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holter Graham?

Almost anyone. This narration is choppy, hard to follow and irritating to listen to.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

This book made me angry and disappointed. The story is not the best, but listening was painful. Can't you find a narrator with a sense of style and who appears to have understood the story, or at least have previewed it before attempting to perform?

Maybe the worst Bourne story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Those who think anything conservative is wrong.

What was most disappointing about Eric Van Lustbader’s story?

He has turned the Bourne series into a political tool

What three words best describe Holter Graham’s voice?

mixed up characters

What character would you cut from Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Ascendancy?


Any additional comments?

Jason Bourne is about action and intrigue, His role in this book is minimal. The action is gone and the politics are strong. The conservative presidential team are the bad guys, war mongers, adulterers and manipulators. Gay and lesbian agenda takes too much time and the characters are all about 1/4" deep. Is he trying to kill the Bourne series?
