Description

He was dragged from the sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues: a frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the skin of his hip; evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face; strange things he says in his delirium, which could be code words. And a number on the film negative that leads to a bank account in Zurich, four million dollars, and a name for the amnesiac: Jason Bourne. Now he is running for his life.

A man with an unknown past and an uncertain future, the target of assassins and at the heart of a deadly puzzle. He's fighting for survival and no one can help him - except the one woman who once wanted to escape him....

©1980 Robert Ludlum (P)2008 Random House Audio

Histrionic performance ruined this book for me!

I've read The Bourne Identity many times. It's a great thriller - full of excitement, well-paced and well-constructed. It's a little old-fashioned nowadays, I guess, but I was really excited when I saw it was available from Audible and bought it straightaway.

What a disappointment!!! The reader, Scott Brick, who is billed as an outstanding performer, gave an over-the-top histrionic performance which completely ruined this talking book for me!

"And he LOOKED over the BOAT'S RAILING and he SAW ...". Enough of that - you get the picture. Every noun and every verb was declaimed in a tone of almost complete hysteria.

I was driving the car down a country lane while I listened to the start of the book and I had to pull off the road after about 20 minutes and stop the performance. I just couldn't stand any more!

I'll never listen to The Bourne Identity now, sadly -- what a total waste of an excellent book. And why on earth did the reader feel the need to do this?? I'll be watching out for books read by Scott Brick in future -- to make sure I avoid them ...

Such a pity - but mostly excellent

Huh? What did he say?
Unfortunately Mr Scott Bri has the tendency to use a soft voice with some parts so if you are listening in a noisy environment, like in a moving vehicle, you tend to lose the las par of some wo. (And possibly some sentences too?)

The book is exceptional. The story much better than the story in the movie but I see it as a bonus (similar stories in the same vein).
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and look forward to the next in the series (Supremacy) BUT I am going to opt for the abridged version narrated by Jeff Harding, even though it is 20 hours shorter. From the sample it sounds acceptable.

The performance of the narrator is mostly top notch but I hate it when people do not finish their words or sentences. If a word is worth saying then say it, dont sa i.

Scott Brick improvised by far too much!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes. The book is great; a page turner. But this audio book is a bit annoying. Why? See below.

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

Yep.

What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

Improvisation, Dissident, Character.

Any additional comments?

Scott's performance isn't bad, but it's more an interpretation than reading the book. Certain passages got completely altered by Scott, which makes it hard to follow when listening to the audio book and reading the book at the same time. His characterization is believable, though. The story comes to live. But as I said it's not what Robert Ludlum wrote.

Not the movie

Very enjoyable book. The movie is not based on the book in any meaningful way.

This book has not aged well

Any additional comments?

I have read this book many times, although not in recent years, and it has always been one of my favorites. It just didn't work for me in audio format - Jason Bourne's frantic and repetitive thoughts and mantras came off very strange, which is of course a failing of the author.. But the narrator did not do Marie well at all - she sounded very stilted.

In short, I was disappointed.

A gripping story read by an excellent narrator.

If you could sum up The Bourne Identity: Jason Bourne Series, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?

Intriguing, Extreme and a Masterpiece.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jason Bourne. The story presents him as broken and yet extremely capable. One can't help wanting him to succeed in his journey to discover who he is.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

Jason Bourne.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Bourne Identity: The assassin who was not!

Any additional comments?

Carlos should have been given a more active role in the story. Bourne's episodes of "blinding" recollections that appeared ti incapacitate in quite frequently seemed rather extreme at times.

Spoilt by the movie

Is there anything you would change about this book?

My interest in the BOURNE stories was created by viewing the movies. I have only hear this one book so far. I could not gain the interest in it that I have had in other Audible books. I will try again with another BOURNE story and try again.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Obtain a new reader. Don't watch the movie first.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The story is involved, this is the way it is meant to be but needs a person with the ability of the author to make the story real in your mind. I didn't find this with this reader.

Any additional comments?

The movie spoilt this plus the reader. I will leave it for a while till the movies forgotten then try another one.

anderer Bourne ?

Abgebrochen , viel zu langweilig . Diese ewige Gesülze von Marie "but I believe in you" tut auf Dauer weh in den Ohren. Den Sprecher mag ich auch nicht , es ist doch nicht alles den französischen Akzent nachmachen zu können
