These Bourne novels are really something else. For one thing, they're completely different from the movies. For another thing, they're so long, have so much information, and switch scenes so many times that I sometimes have trouble keeping track of what's going on.

I like the plots and I like Ludlum's writing style. In this book, Marie is kidnapped to bring Jason Bourne back in the game and stop China from taking over Hong Kong. Exciting (though a bit dated) stuff. There were a number of twists in the plot, and I loved how quickly the action moved at times. What I didn't love is how parts of it felt like it dragged on and the action was described in such detail and jostled around so much that I lost sight of what, overall, was going on. Sometimes it'd get to a scene and I'd think, "Where did this come from?" In every instance, I simply accepted it as something I'd missed - even when I tried to flip back and see why the characters were doing something. So, that was disappointing. I'll probably keep reading the series, but I need some time to pass before I pick up the next one...
