Publisher's Summary

In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own best-selling novels, his best-selling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy. Jason Bourne, international assassin of deadly repute, was an identity assumed by covert agent David Webb. Retired from the CIA and now a professor at Georgetown University, Webb's life is finally his own, until he becomes the target of an assassin and is framed for the murder of his two closest associates. Fighting for his life against unseen assailants, the Bourne identity asserts itself, leaving Jason Bourne in control. Barely a half-step ahead of his nemesis and the CIA, who believes he has gone rogue, Bourne finds himself a pawn in a larger, far deadlier game.

Critic Reviews

"Scott Brick is one of the fastest-rising stars in the audiobook galaxy. His understated approach to each book serves him well, and whether he is handling a roomful of Russian generals or a series of dizzying scene changes, the listener stays with him for every word." (AudioFile)

It sure reads like a Ludlum book!

The book was wonderful! It was a perfect flow from the other Bourne books. Eric Van Lustbader has absorbed the Ludlum style so perfectly that Bourne himself wouldn't know it wasn't Ludlum. With so many different characters in the story it could easily have confused the listener if it weren't for the wonderful character development of the author, and the just as great character differentiation of the narrator. This is a MUST READ!

Listen carefully or you'll be lost in a heartbeat

Like the other reviews, I also enjoyed the story line and near immortality of Jason Bourne. The ONE major issue I have is with the reader. Scott Brick has a compelling voice and is masterful in his voice changes, tone, and pace. However, he continues between "segments" of chapters that change scenes with not even a microsecond of a pause.

He'll be reading about Jason eluding an assasin's bullet in one sentence and describing a CIA operative's exploits in Budapest in the next sentence. The book, of course, has a new sub-segment started as noted by a blank line. Brick, however, keeps on reading without taking a breath.

I found myself backing up thirty seconds or so on nearly every CD because I'd been caught daydreaming a few seconds and was catapaulted into a new scene of the book not knowing the seque to get there.

Other than this glitch, the book is well worth the effort and cost. Enjoy, but pay attention or you'll be left behind.

Excellent audiobook

The book is very well narrated, he has a nice American accent and is able to put feeling into the text where necessary. This comes across much better than it did in film. I haven't listened to many audio books but I would recommend this one, I didn't want to stop listening!
