In the process, Bourne begins to question who he really is and what he would become if he no longer carried the Bourne identity. Across the globe, an American passenger airliner is shot down over Egypt-appare After Bourne is ambushed and nearly killed while in Indonesia, he fakes his death to take on a new identity and mission- to find out who is trying to assassinate him.
Across the globe, an American passenger airliner is shot down over Egypt-apparently by an Iranian missile-leaving the world wondering if it was an accident or an act of aggression. A massive global team lead by Soraya Moore is assembled to investigate the attack before the situation escalates. When Bourne's search for his would-be assassin intersects with Soraya's search for the group behind the airplane bombing, Bourne is thrust into a race to prevent a new world war.

Sort order. Jun 19, Jerome rated it it was ok. Eric van Lustbader is not a writer. A writer would use words appropriately. In the first few pages of The Bourne Objective, van Lustbader uses logarithm when he means algorithm, twice at least , and he uses precipitously when he means either vertically or perpendicularly.

Suddenly, in Van Lustbader's second Bourne novel, Marie caught a cold, died and Jason decided to dump their kids with her parents in Canada in the first 25 pages of his 2nd novel and has not seen, mentioned or thought about them since. Van Lustbader killed off the remainder of those characters in his 2nd and early pages of his 3rd books. Now, he has introduced a much different supporting cast that dominate, rather than compliment Jason, in his books.
Thinking Khan would be a featured character going forward, he has not been heard from since. Within the first few chapters of Van Lustbader's second novel, Jason gives up being David Webb and little more is mentioned of his life as David Webb. Not to mention de-aging Jason. Then, he seemly started over from scratch for the next 3 books. Basically reinventing the character with an overhaul of his life and personality. In my opinion, this is where he went wrong.
He should have simply did his best to stay with Ludlum's character for Bourne books and write this character as his own character different name and background for these last three adventures. May 20, AH rated it really liked it Shelves: thrillers , own , first-reads , zzread-sept The Jason Bourne books were amongst my favourites. Sadly, Robert Ludlum passed away a few years ago, but someone is still writing the Jason Bourne series.
Eric Van Lustbader has taken over this franchise and seems to have succeeded in doing so. My expectations of a Robert Ludl 3. My expectations of a Robert Ludlum were met. If you have never read a Robert Ludlum book, it can be a little confusing. There are many exotic locations all over the world and a huge cast of characters. This ring is the key to a computer that has some information about a very spectacular treasure.
As mentioned above, the cast of characters is vast and you practically need a scorecard to keep up. There are all sorts of conspiracies and power struggles and the resurrection of the Treadstone program. Nothing is as it should be. I liked how Jason Bourne was portrayed in this book.
Jason still has not recovered all of his memory and the bits that come to him add to confuse him. In fact, Bourne reflected, it was probably fun to lie to an amnesiac and watch his reactions.
There is lots of violence and some particularly nasty torture. There was an incredibly nasty scene involving a shark and another with battery acid. The Bourne Objective is a fun book to read. There is a lot of action, suspense, and explosions. Suspend belief and enjoy! View all 5 comments. Aug 03, Mark Sequeira added it. The book starts, "Night descended like a curtain of scuttling insects, coming alive with the setting of the sun. The noise was atrocious, as was the stench of unwashed bodies, human excrement, rotting food, and decomposing bodies.

Yes, transmutation turning lead into gold. I am just glad I borrowed this new book in the Bourne series from the library. The writing is terrible, the plot arcane and ridiculous at the same time and the revelations about Treadstone unending.
I'm not sure what guilty pleasure keeps any of us reading about Bourne Yes, I confess to having read all of them but this book may be the innoculation that sticks. Yes, Ludlum could get predictable and he did recycle the same themes throughout his numerous books but there is no excuse for this, the latest in the series.
For a good portion of the book I couldn't decide if I or the characters were supposed to be taking the things said seriously or if it was all a bizarre plot twist with everyone at one particular moment jumping out at Jason and yelling 'Surprise! Do yourself a favor if you love the Bourne series, View 1 comment. I wouldn't say I'm a fan of the Bourne franchise.
I had only seen the second film, and it's still the only film where I was thinking about walking out of the cinema. But this book came my way and we all know books tend to be better than films so here I am.
I jumped in a book 8, which meant I didn't have a clue who was who. There were lots of characters, each who seemed to have very complicated relationships with each other and all who worked for secret agencies, with different agendas. It took I wouldn't say I'm a fan of the Bourne franchise.
It took me a little while to sort them all out and I'm still not sure I did this correctly. Bourne has amnesia, so he didn't know what was going on either, though he did know some of the other characters. This was an action packed book, with they mystery of Solomon's gold thrown it, it was enjoyable but didn't make me want to hunt out any of the others in the series.

Robert Ludlum's (Tm) the Bourne Objective
Lustbader's cookie-cutter fifth Jason Bourne novel in the Ludlum franchise after The Bourne Deception downgrades the title character to a mere co-star with villain Leonid Arkadin, a graduate of the same covert training program, who also possesses almost superhuman combat skills. Bourne and Arkadin's globe-trotting pursuit of each other drives the main plot, which includes yet another secret cabal bent on world domination, Severus Domna. The members of Severus Domna have their eye on a ring Bourne possesses that's a clue to the location of King Solomon's legendary gold. Arkadin's use of silly aliases e.
