  • Bourne’s Lack of Identity

    2011 - 02.15

    Karin has a copy of The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum, and I read it last week.  Good book, I’ve seen all the movies, but this was my first encounter with the books.  After finishing the book, I wanted to watch the movie again, which I did a couple of days ago.  Turns out my impressions while reading the book were correct, the movie and the book are far from identical.

    I can’t speak for other fans, but I enjoyed both despite the fact they only bare a passing resemblance to each other.  Clearly they needed to be quite different, unless one were to do the movie as a period piece, given that the book takes place 30 years before the movie.  Much of what happens in the book wouldn’t exist in a world with cell phones and the internet.

    I’m curious if the other books in the series align more closely with the plot of the movie or not… but that’s a task for another day.
