eBook edition of the New York Times Best selling novel and source of the 2008 feature film starring Samuel Jackson, Hayden Christensen, and Rachel Bilson.  

An ALA Best Book for Young Adults


“Gould’s very solid first novel has a long pedigree that reaches back to the first sf classic about a misunderstood adolescent with paranormal powers, A.E. Van Vogt’s Slan. In Gould’s entry into this lineage, Davy Rice flees an abusive alcoholic father by using his ability to transport himself physically by sheer force of will....[Gould] is good enough to make this familiar territory agreeable reading, and his debut a desirable acquisition.”--Booklist on Jumper
 

“Gould makes an auspicious debut with this playful and moving look at a hallowed science fiction concept: teleportation. ...Short fiction has earned this author a reputation in “hard” science fiction, and he applies similar logic to teleportation. ...His warm, delightful and compulsively readable novel displays assured storytelling skill --Publishers Weekly on Jumper
 

“An extraordinary first novel combining the engaging appeal of early Heinlein with a biting psychological depth worthy of the most mature author.  Writing with the intense edge of today’s darker reality, Mr. Gould follows the fate of a young teenage boy, whose life take a turn into the unknown when he unexpectedly teleports himself.....What more could any reader want?” --Romantic Times BOOKreviews on Jumper
 

“I’m tempted to call this an old-fashioned book, in the best sense, a story which takes a likable, believable character and explores his interaction with a single scientific speculation. It’s that, but it’s also a sophisticated novel — unusual in a first book.”  --Science Fiction Chronicle on Jumper

Brilliantly told concept sci-fi tale. Flows with a natural stream-of-consciousness. The sequel, REFLEX, is also a must-read. Too bad the movie fell flat on its face; it bares no resemblance to this fine story.

Best sci-fi in years

Of all the sic-fi I've tried to slog through over the years, this has to be the best; quick and to the point, I was hooked immediately by the constant action and fascinating concept. The lack of side-story B.S. was refreshing and welcomed. I look forward to more of this series.

Soul bendingly incredible
