The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum

The Bourne Identity: Jason Bourne Book #1


His memory is a blank. His bullet-ridden body was fished from the Mediterranean Sea. His face has been altered by plastic surgery. A frame of microfilm has been surgically implanted in his hip. Even his name is a mystery. Marked for death, he is racing for survival through a bizarre world of murderous conspirators—led by Carlos, the world’s most dangerous assassin. Who is Jason Bourne? The answer may kill him.


After watching the movie The Bourne Identity I thought I would give the book a go. I really enjoyed the movie and most times the book is way better. Unfortunately this is one of the very rare times when the movie is way better than the book. I actually did not finish this book, my library loan expired before I managed to make it to the end. I only read 70% so...I usually have a very hard time not finishing a book once I start, but I just don't care enough to wait for this  book to come in again at the library to finish it.

The issue I had with this book? The writing made everything incredibly tedious or boring. I struggled to read it even though it should have been fun and exciting. I like the overall storyline, but the execution put me to sleep. Big shoot outs, escaping from the villains, all of it was just boring. Then in between boring action there was Jason being all who am I??? I understand why that would be important to him, but I got tired of reading it. I didn't really care about any of the characters, I didn't really care what happened, it was just unfortunate since the story itself was interesting.

Rating: 1/5
