Publisher's Summary

Thirteen years have passed since David Webb was last forced to assume the alias of the assassin Jason Bourne. Thirteen blissfully peaceful years: time enough to raise a family with his wife Marie, time enough to begin to put the violence and betrayal of the past behind him. Now with one phone call Webb is thrust back into the madness. His greatest enemy, Carlos, the Jackal, is hunting again - determined to stalk and eliminate the one man whose reputation as an international assassin approaches his own, a determination that promises pain and death for David Webb and those who mean the world to him.

Ultra Abridged

Usually, I like Ludlums work, but I've found that you need to hang on to the story to catch all the twists and curves. Unfortunatly, Mr McGavin's speedreading exersize paves over all those elements. Add the cheesy background music and the only ultimatum this work warrents is "bypass this book". The work is less than 3 CD's long, but you'll find yourself wondering if it will ever end.

Dreadful

Darren McGavin is difficult to understand at best in this rendition of "The Bourne Ultimatim" which makes for a long and difficult listening experience. His ability to switch voices is limited and thus leads to considerable confusion for the listener. Combine this with a very poor recording and music mixing and it is just not worth the listeners time or investment. The abridgement is extreme and the story line suffered. I was not going to finish but held on hoping it would improve toward the end, it didn't. I will read the book to see just how much I missed.

If this had been done as well as the Bourne Legacy it would have been great.

Keep your money or buy the book

Hard to describe just how shockingly bad this is. Perhaps the book's fantastic, but I'll never know because everything - the 1980s production values, the dull monotone of the (American) reader (I wouldn't dare describe them as a narrator) the schmaltzy and continuous background music - sets my teeth on edge and makes it impossible to listen to; horrible!

This is my first real disappointment from Audible.co.uk - I'll definitely be using the 'listen before you buy' feature in future, and suggest you do too!

Impossible listen

Quite simply the least well narrated book I have ever had the misfortune to listen to.
I could manage only four minutes before moving on to \"my next listen\".
