Jumper by Steven Gould

I enjoyed the movie Jumper when it came out in 2008, but man did it have some HUGE plot holes. So when I ran out fiction books in my Audible wish list I decided to check the Jumper books out.

Jumper is the first book in a series of 3 by Steven Gould. The story in the movie is similar to the story in the series of books, but is not the same story.

I enjoyed this book, the character Davy is likeable and believable, the narration by Macleod Andrews is good, and the story is good science fiction.

When I was in my teens I spent a lot of time thinking about what it would be like to have superpowers. Most of the time the ability to be invisible was at the top of my list, but now I think that being able to teleport or jump may be an even better power.

I bought this audiobook from Audible and listened to it using the Audible app on my iPhone.

From the publisher:

What if you could go anywhere in the world, in the blink of an eye? Where would you go? What would you do?

Davy can teleport. To survive, Davy must learn to use and control his power in a world that is more violent and complex than he ever imagined. But mere survival is not enough for him. Davy wants to find others like himself, others who can Jump.

I rate this book an 8 out of 10 and recommend it to anyone who likes science fiction/superpower books.
