He is a man with an unknown past and an uncertain future. A man dragged from the sea riddled with bullets, his face altered by plastic surgery - a man bearing the dubious identity of Jason Bourne. Now he is running for his life, the target of professional assassins, at the center of a maddening, deadly puzzle. Who is Jason Bourne? To answer that question, he must find the secret buried deep in his own past. And the only one who can help him is a beautiful stranger - the woman who once would do anything to escape him. Plus, hear a preview of Ludlum's riveting thriller The Bourne Ultimatum.

Awful

I loved the film and I'm sure the full book is great but this version is badly edited, scenes are cut short and the plot doesn't flow at all. Add to the mix the most irritating narrator known to man and you have a disaster. Don't buy this version you will be disapointed.

Then Bourne Identity

The actual book itself may be good, but this audio version is horrible! Between the music and the reader who sounds like he is reading with a mouth full of phlegm it was a nightmare to get through the first 30 minutes.

Disappointing to Ludlum fans

The abbridged version leaves many details out that makes Ludlum writing interesting. The reader's voice and inflections are extremely difficult to understand. I won't get another book by this reader.
