First, the book toggles back and forth between Bourne and "the rest of the world". "Events" happen in one of these modes and to create suspense, the author switches to the other mode to create an event and then switches back to resolve the first event then switch back to resolve the other. This happens so regularly that one imagines Van Lustbader writing two stories then shuffling them together like a deck of cards. The events themselves are unimaginatively CONTRIVED with descriptions as if they were directions to actors for a (bad) movie script.
Secondly, and MOST EGREGIOUSLY, Van Lustbader writes characters who go from venomously DRIVEN to cute and cuddly with the turn of a page. Their behavior begins with one "mode of being" and Bourne is their "magic talisman" to convert them.
Thirdly, just in case he's lost the reader as to the motivations of the characters, at around the 3/4 mark of the book, he has 3 of them engage in a conversation describing "how did this mess start?" At that point I knew that the answer was "Someone told Van Lustbader he was a writer" One expects to "suspend disbelief" but for THIS particular book, only a lobotomy would suffice.
Finally, Van Lustbader gives us a Deus ex machina ending that instead of creating joy (as intended by the author) produces another groan at his amateurish attempt at manipulating the reader.
If, like me, you want a "Bourne fix"...this book will not do it.
In my original review, I forgot to mention the author's GRATUITOUS use of Mexican and Chinese cultural references that are just "dropped" into the work as if, to pad the number of pages, Van Lustbader figured that plagiarizing a Fodor's Guide would help him convince his readers that he knew what he was talking about.
In later years, Mr. Ludlum has had other writers contribute to many of his books, such as Mr. Lustbader. I also have enjoyed these books including the Covert One series.
However, in the case of Jason Bourne, the books lately have been somewhat lacking in action. Maybe this is as it should be, as in the beginning, there was so much more action, one would think it impossible for any human being to accomplish what Mr Bourne did in the original three novels.
Regarding The Bourne Retribution, I greatly enjoyed this one, mainly because of the ending. Jason really needed an ending that would fulfill him. It also leads the way for a new book to follow this one.
Thank You...Ken Peschell

Typical Bourne Novei. Good read. No other comments. On to the next book until the series is complete.
