"The Bourne Ultimatum" is the third and final novel in the Bourne series, and while not as good as its predecessors, is still worth reading, particularly with the movie soon to be released. Ultimately, this book is a decent ending to the series. It wasn't as exciting as the first two, but it's still a good story, and a decent end to the trilogy...
As we all know... the book is better than the movie. Even if you have already seen it on video, the book is still worth the read. Many details and aspects of the plot not covered in the movie make the book well worth your precious reading time.
I can't claim to have been able to follow all the political understories in this trilogy, but all three were great stories with characters that made you want to know how they were going to make out in the end.
