The Bourne Legacy, Eric Von Lustbader

I just finished listening to the unabridged recording of the Bourne Legacy, starring Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne but written by Eric Von Lustbader. It was as gripping a tale as the three that precede it, and equally as forgettable. Just a ripping good and highly enjoyable yarn that will be forgotten as soon as it’s back on the “shelf”.

I listened to the first in the series, The Bourne Identity, after watching the film of the same name. The film and novel are the same in name only; I thought for a few minutes that I had the wrong book – it’s that different! Since then, I’ve listened to all four and enjoyed them all. Great for long car journeys, short car journeys and any kitchen work (dishes, cooking, etc.)

I went for a Hogmanay walk with the last chapter, listening to it as I wandered along a country path with my iPod. No distractions; just a chilly winter’s day.

I’ll probably get tore into the second in the series of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Fire and Ice series, A Clash of Kings next. If it’s as good as the first in the series, I’m in for a treat!
