4.5/5

I’ve wanted to read this book ever since I saw the movie way back in 2008. From what I can remember of the movie, the book to movie adaptation of this story is crappy. They got the teleportation aspect and then the character names and relations, but that’s about it. The movie was enjoyable – I mean, it did cause me to want to read the book – but the book and movie do not compare.

I actually liked everything about this book and could not find fault in much of anything. The only fault I can come up with was that the action side of this story is a little lack luster. Our main character, Davy, struggles with moral dilemmas more than anything else in this story. Which I actually like and appreciate; it seems to me that someone with a moral compass, who could just “jump” anywhere, anytime should logically be faced with many moral dilemmas when it comes to when and how to use the power to teleport. I am glad that Gould wrote those factors into the story. (I’m not sure a more modern writer would have done so.) All that being said, the conflict, or action, of the story was just not something that had me glued to my earbuds. However, this particular book is a great start to the whole series. I trust that once the moral dilemmas have been evaluated by Davy, and his opinions determined, that he will center his compass and drive the action into a more action-y place that will have me singing the praises of the whole series.

The plot was good. It had nice progression and nothing felt forced. Conflict and resolution were both good. I like the direction this series seems to be going.

I wasn't impressed with this. It is a jumper story but it repeats the same thing over and over without really giving resolution. This is not a continuation of the previous Jumper stories - it is apart and indicates there are other jumpers and an agency that hunts them for reasons unknown. I think this would have been a more solid story if there had been some resolution or reveal of the antagonists and something for the main character, as it is the reader (and main character) are just left with a lot of why and questions after a serious amount of grief and carnage. Did I mention this begins when the main character is none? I'm surprised he survived at all.… (mais)

Part spy thriller, part science fiction and a good page turner.
