I loved the movie and heard that I the book was comparatively awesome And it wasThe thing is I haven't the faintest idea how the movie came out of the book Beyond the premise of a man fished from the sea with no memory but incredible ingrained abilities and talents that make it look like he's really probably and assassin with no amnesia and the fact that the first act after the prologue occurs in Zürich and deals with a Swiss bank nothing is the sameSure there's a girl named Marie but she's an entirely different character Sure there are people trying to kill the man named Jason Bourne but they're entirely different men Sure there's an American government run company called Treadstone Seventy One that is looking for Bourne but for entirely different reasons But are all these differences a bad thingNo They are notI really think the first Bourne movie is among the best action films ever created That said for most of its running time Ludlum's 1980 novel is better than the movie The premise is so much intriguing and Bourne's turmoil better perceived Instead of an enemy as doughy and effeminate as cloak and dagger US senators and secret servicemen the novel pits Bourne against the unbeatable assassin Carlos the Jackal though Ludlum refrains from the colourful animamorphism and his vast array of human resources The book is action packed one of those thrillaminnut rides that refuses for the most part to let up I don't read cheap thrillers often but The Bourne Identity was worth my timeAnd I like to think that my time is valuableThis is not to say that Ludlum's thriller is not without fault The book's reuisite romance is rushed and artificial We know that Bourne and his interest are in love solely because Ludlum tells us that this is the case not because we see any evidence that this should be the case And actually there is a far greater problem The climax is poorly wrought and much difficult to follow than anything previous encountered in the book The ending is not satisfying in that by the time it comes emotional resonance has long since evaporatedBut still I was in love with the book until the last forty pages or so

review The Bourne Identity

The Bourne IdentityN dollars in a Swiss bank account Why has someone tried to murder himJason Bourne does not know the answer to any of these uestions. This book caused me pain Intense boredom odd moments of indignation and pain It's poorly paced The prose is a clunky redundant pointlessly vague affront to all that is good in the English language The dialogue is stilted and horrid The characters are so robotic I begin to uestion whether Ludlum ever met a human being and the romance is not only horribly oversold BUT PREDICATED ON BOURNE USING HIS LOVE INTEREST AS A HUMAN SHIELD I don't care how many rapists a man rescues you from; if he introduces himself by slapping shaking and threatening to shoot you HE IS NOT BOYFRIEND MATERIAL and that relationship SHOULD NOT BE SHOWN AS LOVING AND WONDERFULAnd seriously the prose is awful Get Carlos Trap Carlos False Cain is for Charlie and Delta is for Cain Find a man Some nonsense about traps Maybe if I repeat the same meaningless statements over and over and italicize everything and sprinkle liberally with exclamation marks people will people will what I can't even begin to think of a rationale for thatAnd I want my afternoon back

The scenario is absolutely excellent and probably one of the best I ever read in terms of complexity and continuous action andor new discoveries What an imagination The story and the characters are slightly different from the movie; I should say the storyline is way much complex in the book; the characters could do with a bit substance The major drawback which explains my rather poor uotation of this book is indeed the writing uality or lack thereof Some sentences simply do not make any sense even when read 3 or 4 times on their own and within the paragraph; some images are not relevant;wording is usually poor and uite inadeuate; there are mistakes in grammar and conjugation So much actually of all of this that I really had trouble to open the book again even though I knew the story was so compelling I would not put it down so easily Ludlum to my opinion is the worst writer I've ever read but with one of the best story lining and imagination Indeed I believe Ludlum should not have worked on his own but teamed with a skilled writer who would have put that into right words and made this book into the 5 star winner it really should beThis has been my first and probably my last book from this author
