    The Janson Directive By Robert Ludlum


    K.D. Absolutely
    Robert Ludlum, while living or now that he is dead, never fails to astonish me His works are just different from most of the suspense thriller novels around Ludlum books are like a certain kind of apparel brand whose owners and tailors seem to have me in mind whenever they design and produce their clothes The Janson Directive was first published in 2002, a year after Robert Ludlum s death The question of whether he or some hired writers wrote this does not really matter This book has the quality [...]

    i finished this catastrophe of a book too tired Review to come laterMy thought at the end of this book was simply this My only defense is this book actually started out really well, i read chapters 1 8 and i was thinking oh shit this is going to be gooood Alas this book turned out to be absolutely underwhelming, chock full of middle east stereotypes starring your favorite recurring themes such as, westerners are evil e caliph was a leader in the struggle against the corruption of the West, the b [...]

    I randomly purchased this book in and when I started reading it , I just couldn t stop A well Narrated Spy novel by Robert Ludlum Fast pacedtwistyand heck of a suspense

    Just like Robert Ludlum s Bourne series and Lee Child s Reacher books, you WANT to believe there is someone that kickass out there We all know there isn t So, as long as you take it as seriously as the Die Hard movies they are excellent books In this story, the worlds greatest philanthropist, billionaire and all round good guy is kidnapped by terrorists No ransom is demanded they just want to execute him Novak s people call in the one man killing machine Paul Janson Janson puts together a rescue [...]

    America secretly tries to influence the course of world history whilst appearing to stay at arms length but it all goes horrible wrong and eventually they have to rely on an ex super spy to save the day when their puppet decides he wants to control the strings himself So utterly predictable I only kept on reading to see how dreadful it could get In that respect it didn t disappoint it just kept on getting worse and worse Also I kept really irritated by glaring errors that a minimum of research c [...]

    Good action paced novel just what you would expect from Ludlum many plot changes that I didn t see coming so was enjoyable If I was directing the movie abut the book would cast Bruce Willis as the aging hero and Kate Blanchett as the love interest.

    This was my first Robert Ludlum book, although I had heard the name over the years, and read a few reviews of his books As I had a whole English pound coin burning a hole in my pocket I tried this one Some familiar ground to start off with, a terrorist preparing to do something horrid and killing one or two sentries and border guards in preparation The horrid thing was the abduction of a man who, along with being rich beyond our wildest dreams uses his money and influence for the good of his fel [...]

    I have no words to express my disappointment or explain how truly horrible this book is Having said that, the phrase, what a load of rubbish sums it up rather nicely It starts off with so much promise, but quickly dissolves into the type of anti American rhetoric frequently promulgated by those on the left side of the political spectrum at home and abroad Don t get me wrong of course America is not perfect and of course it can and should be criticized Just not this way It is an insult to my inte [...]

    Oh my It has seemed to take me forever to read this novel I always thought of Robert Ludlum as a writer of suspense and thrillers In the midst of reading this book, I did something I have never done before I came back to the web site to read the reviews of others As I learned that this novel was an unfinished work at the time of Ludlum s death on 12 Mar 2001, my suspicions were confirmed I know that an adult should rarely use the word never in their vocabulary so I do not state this lightly, I w [...]

    This is the first book in the series and the second Robert Ludlum book I have read Robert Ludlum was a great writer with great attention to detail This book is full of many twists and turns and fortunately for Janson he is able to navigate through it all Of course, there was not enough sex, but Janson is getting up there in years.

    Another great Ludlum book of intrigueI like intrigue, and the twists and turns kept me glued This story will not fail you If you have read his other books, read this one too,

    Jason Sta. Maria
    It was a bit common story But anyway I can still say it was good enough atleast.

    It was very good many twists turns The main theme of it all eventually is revealed, being something completely hard to grasp but something only a select few will truly know

    Robert Ludlum, c est une vieille histoire d amour que j avais envie d exhumer pour remettre ce fabuleux auteur au go t du jour et relire ses romans avec un il diff rent, peut tre plus mature que lors des lectures originelles.La Directive Janson est un ouvrage posthume et le premier d une s rie autour du personnage de Paul Janson Paul Garrison, alias de Justin Scott, ayant repris le flambeau pour les deux suivants et Douglas Corleone pour le quatri me tome.Paul Janson s est retir des affaires, a [...]

    By Robert Ludlum Grade AThe author of 37 novels, Robert Ludlum has been one of the busiest authors in literary circles The Janson Directive is one of those 5 novels which were credited to Robert Ludlum and published posthumously.The spy game cost Paul Janson everything that was most important to him, so it would take a lot to lure him back into it But there is one person to whom Janson owes a huge debt and he s calling in his marker Peter Novak has been kidnapped and faces execution at the hands [...]

    enjoyed this fast thrillerWhen billionaire philanthropist Peter Novak is kidnapped by a terrorist known as The Caliph, it s up to Paul Janson a legend in the notorious U.S covert agency Consular Operations to save him But Janson s rescue operation goes horribly wrongd soon Janson is marked for death, the target of a beyond salvage order issued from the highest level of the government Now Janson is running for his life, pursued by Jessica Kincaid, a young agent of astonishing ability who can anti [...]

    This one was long winded The opening mission, especially, went on for far too long and, as with much of the rest of the book, it felt like the plot could ve been rounded up much quicker It also reads like a novel that was incomplete it was only half written when Ludlum died and it didn t have the same level of cheese that was in the Chancellor Manuscript, which, oddly, I missed Still, the plot itself was interesting enough and a last act twist genuinely surprised me.

    Raymond F. Klett
    Not Ludlum materialOnly two stars because it does not measure up to the level of a Ludlum book The story idea was good but the Jansen character was weak at key points Further, there were useless flashbacks that did nothing to develop the charater And at least one glaring error in timeline, where Novak refered to yesterday and the storyline established the yesterday event was at least two days earlier.

    Fast paced, often terrifying, with an evil man at the center and a twist to it all, this might have been up on my top shelf with the Bourne books, but it isn t because of the long winded, turn back and go over stuff, make things as confusing for as long as possible Paul Janson is superficial compared to Jason Bourne, though he means what he says, has a strong moral core, and is loyal But

    Audible version Great story, good narration, but the production was just ok The little musical interludes seemed odd and out of place every time they were used Enjoyed the character of Paul Janson, and his eventual partner, among others.

    Book was good, but wasn t what I expected.

    Jerry King

    Interesting premise but insufferably drawn out.

    David Malloy
    I enjoyed it I think it s one of his better ones Not as good as the Bourne books but close.

    Don Preston
    Very good spy novel Looking forward to the next in the series.

    Mark Wesling
    Would give it 3 1 2 stars Slow at times and too long overall But there is a great story in there and lots of action At 450 pages would have been 5 star

    As usual Mr Ludlum wastes no time in getting down to action in this non stop thriller Our hero Paul Janson has reluctantly accepted a mission to rescue a world famous philanthropist from the clutches of a radical terrorist group who has kidnapped him and sentenced him to a beheading in , shall we say 48 hours Not much time to work but Ludlum is a master at packing everything into a microscope and blowing it up in the shortest order possible and so it is to be once again Stretching his almost sup [...]

    I have to admit despite the other Robert Ludlum series that I have already read, I haven t actually read one of Robert Ludlum s original novels written before he had passed and other authors had taken over the various series Now, I have finally taken the time to read this particular novel because it s his original before recently a second book with the same main character, Paul Janson, has been taken over by another author.I have read the Jason Bourne series, and the Covert One Lt Col Jon Smith [...]

    Reasons NOT to give this one four stars1 Paul Janson is an awesome protaganist So awesome in fact that he makes James Bond look like an amateur in CONVENIENTLY FINDING WAYS TO FINAGLE OUT OF EVERY SINGLE JAM HE IS IN He s damn near flawless He could make a spaceship out of a rotted jack o lantern and a few pieces of scrap metal Not to mention he knows everything about every single piece of technology that shows up in this story Tony Stark could learn things from this guy Yessir, Paul Janson is j [...]
