Was the Movie supposed to be based on this book?

I agree with some of what has been written but I still felt that this was a good purchase for me. There were so many story lines it sometimes got a little confusing I'm still not sure of what happened with one of them. (Will not spoil here) After the book I decided to rent the movie. Do not get the two confused, they have nothing in common except the man named Bourne. And the movie was REALLY bad! Talk about a waste of money.
I digress, as for the Narrator, Scott Brick is my favorite and I feel he did a fine job considering how many story lines he was trying to cover. As for his slow speech I feel like that is his style and I had no problem with it.
This is a long book, it was not a one afternoon listen but if you have a long drive, or can spread it out over several days I feel it was a good listen for a while then take a break.
You may need to take notes while you listen to keep up with all of the branches on the story but overall I felt like this was a decent book. Much better then some I have listened to.

Great Ending to a Great Trilogy

What did you love best about The Bourne Ultimatum?

I really like Alex and Morrise. They seem like the most real characters and they play important roles in assisting Jason Bourne Hunt down the Jackel.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, overall it was a very fast-paced but it does have slow moments (usually with Marie).


What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

He did amazing with all the languages and different characters.


Any additional comments?

It is confusing and a second listen will make it more clear but a very good story. I think it beats the movie hands down.
