Summary

A Jason Bourne novel.

Jason Bourne is now working as a 'blacksmith' - someone who is hired by high-level government ministers fearful of assassination attempts. He is paid to impersonate these men at meetings in places of uncertain security around the globe. Bourne is at one such meeting when armed gunmen storm the room - but their target is not the minister he impersonates, it is Bourne himself.

Kidnapped and transported to an underground bunker, Bourne finds himself face-to-face with a well-known terrorist, a man who calls himself El Ghadan ('Tomorrow'). El Ghadan demands that Bourne carry out a special mission for him - one, that if completed, will have dire consequences for the entire world.

Much Better than the latest Jason Bourne movie

Holter Graham does an amazing job narrating this book, he is super talented. I enjoyed the story better than the last Jason Bourne movie.
I always smile when someone leaves a comment about a audio book, saying they don't like the different voices the narrator uses, my advice to people like that is to rather buy the hard cover and read it your self :)

Not convinced

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not as an audiobook. Hopefully paper version will be more entertaining

What did you like best about this story?

Jason Bourne and Sarah triple agent story.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Holter Graham?

No.
Hard to understand. Audio is really low and the accents were annoying. I listen to audiobooks constantly and this is the first one I couldn't listen when walking on the street.
Could be technical but the whole experience was a bit of torture. I was loosing focus easily.

Could you see Robert Ludlum's the Bourne Ascendancy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

I'd love to see that. Same actor as in Bourne trilogy would do

Bourne again!

Would you listen to Robert Ludlum's the Bourne Ascendancy again? Why?

I would listen The Bourne Ascendancy again because it is a good listen and the Bourne series is great except that Jason Bourne would be in his seventies by now and too Damon old to do what he does.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Camilla because she was sexy as hell and was able to humiliate the sleaze bag President.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen too it in one sitting.
