    I loved the movie and heard that I the book was comparatively awesome. And it was.The thing is: I haven't the faintest idea how the movie came out of the book. Beyond the premise of a man fished from ...

    I watched this movie around nine years ago, I think. I just remember this guy walking around and kicking ass with dramatic music in the background. I didn’t get the plot. I still don’t understand...

    I decided to finally jump on the Robert Ludlum train and read this. I'd recently also jumped on the Mat Damon train and watched the film trilogy. Yes, where had I been the past few years? Well being a...

    The scenario is absolutely excellent and probably one of the best I ever read in terms of complexity and continuous action and/or new discoveries. What an imagination ! The story and the characters ar...
