it was ok

I'm half way through this and to be honest I'm forcing myself to continue. I want to like this but it just doesn't feel like the same Bourne as in Ludlum's trilogy. The characters seem to have less depth including Bourne and his inward struggle (that is almost non existent, but to me was a major theme in the originals - Webb/Bourne/Delta). The main characters that you grew to know and love are MIA or dead. I couldn't really care less about Khan. I feel sorry for Marie and David, the trilogy finished nicely, but now after all they went through more tragedy so we can read another book.

Maybe this book is better for people who are reading after watching the movies, I wouldn't recommend for fans of the first 3 books.
