Summary

Readers and listeners were first introduced to Jason Bourne's nemesis Leonid Arkadin, a brilliant Russian assassin and fearless international mercenary, in The Bourne Sanction. His girlfriend was killed during a fight for which an enraged Arkadin blames Bourne. In The Bourne Deception, Arkadin hunted Bourne to take revenge and kill him. Bourne, in a fight for his life, learned that Arkadin's skills mirror Jason's because he received the same original CIA Treadstone training.

Now, in The Bourne Objective, Jason will turn the tables and target Arkadin. Hunter will become hunted.

But revenge can cause great psychological devastation. Has this become too personal for Bourne? Will this hunt be Bourne's downfall?

Dissapointing and I didn't like the narration

Having listened to The Bourne Legacy by the same author I was disaapointed by this book. I'm not 100% sure if it was the narration that put me off but I could never get into this book because of it. This book is trying to be more like a Dan brown Davinci code but it just doesn't work. I would whole heartedly recommend his other book though and give suggest you give this one a miss.

oh dear...

Big fan of both the Greengrass movies and Ludlum novels (different as they are). Unfortunately, this tripe falls far short of either. Won't be wasting time or money on further continuation novels.

Actors voice is distracting

Unlike other reviewers i thought the story was as good as the others, but the actors gravelly voice was distracting. The voices of the different characters were hard to distinguish. Also the music in the last few stories have been annoying and unnecessary
