The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum

Found with bullet wounds when he was dragged from the sea, the man knows he has a sordid past but no memory of who he is. His only clue is a clue found beneath his skin and ramblings during his fever.

With these few leads, Jason Bourne begins his hunt to discover his identity and finds himself hunted, as well. Now he needs to figure out what is going on and escape those who chase him, or he may die without any answers.

I had tried to watch the movie adaption years ago and didn't enjoy it. I hoped the book may change my mind, but it hasn't. The plot is terribly paced. The third person limited point of view swaps between characters at some of the strangest places and most of those swaps up until the end don't seem to do much to advance the plot. The relationship between himself and the woman who falls in love with him doesn't even make sense. In the end the characters who know flat-out explain it all, almost like the author just gave up even trying to make any sense of what he wrote throughout the book. I definitely do not recommend this.
