Griffin has a secret. It's a secret that he's sworn to his parents to keep and never tell. Griffin is a Jumper: a person who can teleport to any place he has ever been. The first time was when he was four, and his parents crossed an ocean to protect the secret. The most important time was when he was nine. That was the day that the men came to his house and murdered his parents. Griffin knows that the men were looking for him, and he must never let them find him.

Griffin grows up with only two goals: to survive, and to kill the people who want him dead. And a jumper bent on revenge is not going to let anything stand in his way.

Jumper is a major motion picture released by 20th Century Fox in February 2008. Download and start listening now!

    " I really enjoyed Steven Gould's first two Jumper books, Jumper and Reflex, but this one was a let down. It seemed that just when the story really got going it just stopped. It wouldn't suprise me if Steven ran out of time to meet the publishers deadline and just sent off what he had completed. Too many issues were not developed well or even addressed, hopefully there will be another book that will tie everything up. Until then, I would just skip this book unless you have a lot of time on your hands and don't mind a story that goes nowhere. "

    " Wasn't as good as the first two books, I don't think. Although the beginnings and middle parts were riveting and edge-of-your-seat exciting, the ending was a letdown. (And truth be told, I had no idea what happened. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 2/14/2014

    " I accidently read this book and then found out that this is the third book. Good thing it is independent of the other two. I thought the book was good, really disapointed by the movie. If you have seen the movie stay away, if you haven't its a must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 1/20/2014

    " Very interesting to read the story of the Griffin we first meet in the Jumper movie...who, I do not believe is in the Jumper book..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/18/2014

    " Love it! and just as great the second time around! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 1/15/2014

    " This was NOT a good book. At all. I loved the first 2 but this was just bad. I did finish it just to know how it would end, but it really wasn't worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddie | 1/8/2014

    " Decent book, horrible movie. I mean horrible. The movie had so much potential too. Too bad they didn't capitalize on it though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/7/2014

    " Not as good as the original two books, Jumper and Reflex, but it was nice to go into seeing the movie with this background on Griffin's character. Still, though, if you're going to get into this series, I would read the first two (originals). They're much better than the movie. "

    " i have read this book several times and still love it :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marc Jerry | 11/20/2013

    " good but i wanted a better ending...where there's actually an ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee Corry | 11/18/2013

    " Story does not develop as well as the first two books but it's still worthy of you time. Nice relaxing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 9/9/2013

    " Fantastic story and well told using imagery and LOTS of character emotion. It's awesome to follow Griffin from early childhood as he finds out he can "Jump" through an early life of revenge... a Drama with Sci/Fi over tones, but very rooted in the "real" world "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 4/18/2013

    " Not great literature, but still a decent and entertaining read. The author's sci-fi "rules" are a bit different than the other books in the "Jumper" series (in order to match the movie), but it wasn't too jarring. It does help to watch the movie first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 12/18/2012

    " This is great book. I like how it ended. I'm ready for the next book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ronya | 10/3/2012

    " while I liked Jaimie Bell as Griffen in the movie, and although I like Griffen's story, the original Jumper is best. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jamie | 9/3/2012

    " Jumper was excellent and this book was terrible. Such a disappointment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry | 8/29/2012

    " I don't think Gould was fully able to reconcile the incredibly dark places that the logic of this plot dictated his hero go with his creation of him as a plucky positive Young Adult Hero. So, for me, okay but not great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 7/14/2012

    " Even when he's re-writing a story he's already written before, Steven Gould is still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 5/31/2012

    " I enjoyed the book - love the transcontinental journey and the soul searching. Steven Gould is great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric Compean | 2/20/2012

    " this is good book to have followed the movie, i liked Griffen as a character and i hope they make more Jumper movies, that would be awesome. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan | 2/9/2011

    " I haven't seen the movie, but as a stand-alone book this leaves too much unsaid, unresolved and the motivations are unclear. The pacing and writing style I enjoy but the actual story was weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 1/9/2011

    " This was a good back story for the character Griffin that was created for the movie. It was an entertaining read with an open ending, I am waiting for the sequel. "
