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!

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.

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!
