Full disclosure: I started this series because of how much my husband LOVES the Matt Damon movies. Luckily, this first in the Bourne series is just as fun as the films indicate, though they do differ in some major plot points. Jason Bourne is a man suffering from amnesia, though soon finds that he possesses a lethal set of survival skills. He is soon led down the garden path by former and current CIA, and discovers he is also the target of a skilled assasin named Carlos the Jackal. Good character development, and I do recommend the next in the series (The Bourne Supremacy).
