Overview

Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Imperative (Bourne Series #10) by Eric Van Lustbader

The man Jason Bourne fishes out of the freezing sea is near death, half-drowned and bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound. He awakens with no memory of who he is or why he was shot-and Bourne is eerily reminded of his own amnesia. Then Bourne discovers that the Mossad agent named Rebeka is so determined to find this injured man that she has gone off the grid, cut her ties to her agency, and is now being stalked by Mossad's most feared killer. Do the answers to these mysteries lie back in southeast Lebanon, in a secret encampment to which Bourne and Rebeka escaped following a firefight weeks ago?
The complex trail links to the mission given to Treadstone directors Peter Marks and Soraya Moore: find the semi-mythic terrorist assassin known as Nicodemo.
In the course of Bourne's desperate, deadly search for a secret that will alter the future of the entire world, he will experience both triumph and loss, and his life will never be the same.
Now everything turns on the amnesiac. Bourne must learn his identity and purpose before both he and Rebeka are killed. From Stockholm to Washington, D.C., from Mexico City to Beijing, the web of lies and betrayals extends into a worldwide conspiracy of monumental proportions.

Robert Ludlum's The Borne Imperative is another compelling story with intuitively observed characters that he successful brought to life with alacrity and permanence in the mind of the reader. The dialogue is very engaging, and i also found the setting colorful.Bourne brings to mind Gavin in Triple Agent Double Cross. Overall, this is a well written work with a gripping plot, awesome characterization, beautiful dialogue and absorbing setting. In short it is an accomplished writing and a compelling read.

There are so many characters in this novel, you should like at least one of them, right? But instead a tiresome series of fights occurs, multiple plot lines must be learned, and nothing that resonates in reality is there for the reader to be concerned about. We know that Bourne will win all of his fights, so reading the details of the battles seems a waste of time. Plenty of people die, but not one you care about. Well, maybe Rebeka. But the plot as it is is so wispy that the reader doesn't know what the stakes are. And the book is badly edited. "Her said" when "he said" is appropriate. Take a look at Chapter 28. Bourne is uncomfortable in the cockpit of the military plane: "Bourne shifted his satphone from one ear to another...he was riding up in the cockpit. The Mirage fighter jet...wasn't comfortable..." (Page 398)Problem is, Bourne isn't to the fighter jet yet! He has just been picked up in a car the page before, and a turn of the page has him in that car, not the cockpit, riding to a boutique hotel. He doesn't go to the jet until page 405. But does it matter? It only emphasizes what a mess this novel is. Give me a plot with a sense of purpose and some characters to care for, throw in a good writer and I will have a good read. This one wasn't.

I have read all of Ludlum's books and Eric Van Lustbader's books. I must say this is a fast read and one of Van Lustbader's better books.

Robert Ludlum (and Eric Van Lustbader's continuing efforts) has been a wonderful series of the character Jason Bourne.

There was good action, but I was a bit unclear on the motivation of the characters. It seemed a little off the wall that they would take such an interest.

I have enjoyed reading all the Bourne novels. I gave this four stars because of the characters. It is kind of hard keeping up with them all. Still a great read.

A great read

Too many characters to keep track of and a confusing potpouri of agendas and plots.that test the readers concentration. Fate of two of the central characters is left unresolved . Skipping from venue to venue as the author does throughout the book, makes for some confusion and there is too much history given about troo many of the characters in the authors quest to develop those characters. Otherwise, the action is fast and furious.
