Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Identity-Jason Bourne 1

Overview: Jason Bourne was born–no pun intended–around six months ago. That’s when he woke up in the doctor’s home. Too bad all he has is muscle-memory. If he had more, he might understand why t these people want him dead. Can he survive long enough to find out who he is, and what he is?

Story Telling: This is an international spy thriller. Please don’t confuse it for the movie. In this case, they are two different animals.

Dislikes: For the most part, it was the international aspects of the story that bugged me. Yes, I get that there’s this rush for authenticity in your writing. It just seems unwise to alienate those readers who might enjoy your books simply because they don’t have the working knowledge of the foreign language used. Remember, even Mr. Tolkien, with all of his fantastical languages, offered the leisure reader a translation–most of the time.

Likes: Jason has a great attitude. For the most part, as long as you were decent around him, he was decent to you.

Favorite Character: It would be Jason.

Favorite Scene: That would be when Jason went back for Marie.

Conclusion: This book has an intrinsic story, be ready for that, though you’ll at least need a French-English dictionary for translation purposes. And the time it takes for that translation.
