Moderate effort 11 Oct. 2000
By mellion108 - Published on Amazon.com
I kept checking the cover of JUMP ROPE all throughout the read. It seems like a young adult novel until near the end when more adult themes are brought out. It is an interesting premise. Little girl is compelled to come home early, enters home and makes a gruesome discovery. Throw in a ghost (or is it?) and more grisly murders, add characters who don't really speak to each other, and people with mysterious pasts, and you have a formula for a decent reading experience.
Jensen's writing kept me reading till the end here. However, the story itself drags on for far too long while the end is rather obvious about halfway into the book. I did not feel that the child characters acted like normal children; they were all either too stilted or too sappy. I truly liked Jensen's THE HAUNTING, and that compelled me to go on to some of her earlier works. JUMP ROPE never really grabbed my attention although it's far from the worst novel I've ever read. It certainly hasn't swayed me from reading other novels by Jensen, but it is a book that is already in the to-be-donated box.

steven who????????? 3 Aug. 2002
By Scott Ainsley - Published on Amazon.com
jump rope,well what else can be said?
At the tender age of 15 I bought this book from the libary and just looked at it for years and then one night out of sheer bordom i picked it up and started reading it. the opening was so graphic and intense i could not put the book down, not knowing if i was scared to goto sleep or scared i'll miss something if i closed it, many of night i just got up after reading it i went straight to work bog eyed and wondering what might happen next!!! Jump Rope is well worth a read 'cause once you have read it again and again and then invest in some more of Ruby Jean Jensens' books. Belive me

Ruby Jean Jensen equals SCARY! 2 Nov. 2008
By The Mountaineer - Published on Amazon.com
Jump Rope by Ruby Jean Jensen is a truly chilling novel,most of her books feature evil-dolls or evil -children which is a interesting preference for this author.Find her books if you can..they're out of print!
