In the Bourne Supremacy there is a constant battle between one Bourne and another. One good, the other evil. One the origanal, the other, the imposter. Because his wife has been kidnapped, David Webb, alias: Jason Bourne, must seek out a man who is posing as the real Jason bourne to get his wife back. This man could push Hong Kong and eventeually, the world, to war by his endless assassinations and killings. The hunt begins as one man seeks his other self. In this exciting novel, the skills of a man trained by the best saves his wife, himself, and, the world. I thought that The Bourne Supremacy was a great book.

These books are so different from the movies. The storyline isn't the same. Also, the timeline is like 60's & 70's instead of current-ish. It kind of makes me think of how superhero comics have alternate reality universes for the same characters. Regardless of the small details, the overall is the same, lots of government and unknowns. He has to figure out who is doing what to him. He starts from nothing, not knowing who is against him or if anyone is on his side. Everyone is shady and a possible threat. Also, because of so much undercover, he has his own mind to compete with when trying to discern what's real. In this story he gets pulled into a battle between two opposing forces in China that could destroy other governments. Also, there is another Bourne, again. All of the scenarios would be dangerous of the best agent without having to sort out their own identity during the process.

Fun to re-read this novel for the first time in 27 years (I first read it back in 1988 at the tender age of 12). Exciting action scenes, intriguing and fast-paced plot line, engaging characters, and a fascinating historical snapshot of (1) mainland China in the decade after Deng Xiaoping's market reforms, and (2) Hong Kong in the decade before the handover from the HK to the PRC. I pictured Mitchell Ryan in the role of Undersecretary McAllister, and William F. Buckley Jr. playing Ambassador Havilland. Some random notes and observations: --with all due respect to the dead (RIP Mr. Ludlum), I gotta nitpick the author on p. 92 for referring to the magazine well of a semiautomatic pistol as a "receiving chamber;" as the ESPN NFL crew says, "C'mon, Man!"" --p. 119 (in reference to Hong Kong): "the only commonly acknowledged god of believers and nonbelievers alike was money." Shades of James Clavell's words about Hong Kong in "Noble House!" --p. 310: "Bourne snapped the trigger housing out of its recess." Is Ludlum referring to the disassembly procedure of a Walther PPK or Russian Makarov? --p. 352: a USC (Univ. of Southern California) reference, hell to the yeah, FIGHT ON, TROJANS!!

Those who recommend the movies rather than the books either must never have read the books or seen the movies- there is little in common between each book and the movie of the same title. I loved the movies (Except for the Bourne Legacy with Jeremy Renner- mediocre at best), and had not read the books prior to seeing all of the movies. The Ludlum Bourne Trilogy is an almost entirely new adventure, with only the main premise and a few key characters being the same. That being said, Ludlum's dialogue can seem contrived, forced and downright goofy at times, his attempts to convey the anguish and torture of the amnesiac Bourne can be clumsy, ineffectual and repetitive. However, Ludlum displays a deftness in ratcheting up the international intrigue and this alone manages to outweigh such stylistic weaknesses. It's a good read, and good story, and a new adventure for Bourne movie fans who were let down by the non-Bourne last Bourne movie.
