I have watched and thoroughly enjoyed all 3 Bourne movies. Because of this, someone kindly lent me their copy of The Bourne Identity novel. And do you know what? I'm struggling to get through it. First of all. I have no idea how after about 6 months recuperating, Bourne was so easily identified as a target. Second. Bourne slaps Marie around in the novel. For no reason at all. And she puts up with it. Nothing like that happens in any of the crappy paranormals that I've read. Personally. I'm not really interested in stories like that.
It's very hard to return a book to a friend and say "Actually. I didn't read it."
