The Bourne Supremacy
2 journalers for this copy...
I read The Bourne Identity about a month ago, and enjoyed it more than I expected to. (While I enjoy some thrillers, spy thrillers aren't usually near the top of that list.) I enjoyed Jason's challenge to learn who he was, despite the government's interference in his and Marie's lives.
This book, with its setting in Hong Kong and China was not as enjoyable to me, since I don't know much about the Orient. I do know that Hong Kong passed to Chinese control about 15 years ago, so when this book was written that issue was very much a concern (that it be a controlled event, rather than as a power play amongst the Chinese). Marie was kidnapped at the beginning of the story, to force David to give up his civilian life and once again become Jason, in order to help the government/military find a "Jason" impersonator (who interestingly, wasn't as dangerous as the "original"). It was interesting to see her become a chameleon, as Jason had earlier taught her, in order to hide herself from her captors. And I enjoyed the devices where Jason remembers what he'd been taught by his earlier instructors/handlers, as it came to him as he needed to resume these skills.
A good but not great read, to me. After all these years, thanks to Odin (not sure if you're still around any or not). This book will soon be in search of a new home, finally.
