APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Jason Bourne is prepared to confront any threat—except for the truth. Pulled out of the ocean by a passing fishing trawler, half-drowned and shot multiple times, he wakes up with almost no memory of who he is. Soon enough, he discovers that he’s fluent in several languages, proficient in martial arts, and an expert with almost any firearm. His mission to discover who he is and why he’s the target of a high-level global conspiracy is a heart-pounding, one-of-a-kind mystery laced with deadpan humor. Set against a backdrop of breakneck action and high-stakes international intrigue, Robert Ludlum’s hit novel asks the eternal philosophical question “Who am I?”

not the same as the movie
I love these movies. It's been awhile since I've watched them, but unless I'm confused, the book is very different. I wasn't crazy about the romance aspect for much of it. Actually a portion of the story lost me for awhile, but I was really into it by the end. I'm sure where the story is going from here into book 2, but I'm looking forward to finding out.
O’D on Books
Tremendous book. Intricate plot is not for someone in search of quick read. Ludlum doesn’t disappoint with deep plot. Highly recommend the first three Bourne books and all Ludlum novels written before he passed.
The Bourne Identity
Is much more complex than the movie and more engaging. The writing tends to ramble at times, but be not deceived! This is a very good story and he span of the plot and characters is impressive, not over produced, not cut short.
Very good read, stay with it if you like me almost pit it down, the writing is worthy of your perseverance.
