REFLEX (Jumper)
Format: Mass Market Paperback|Change


on 7 July 2015
Reflex is what I would consider an ideal sequel thanks to being able to stand on its own without its predecessor and by progressing the story of characters we know in a new and unexpected direction. Continuing on from 1992's Jumper, Reflex sets itself 10 years after Davy's pursuit of revenge. Now married to Millie and working for the CIA alongside Brian Cox, Davy now lives a happy life free from his alcoholic father. That is until he is kidnapped by an organisation that wants to utilise his power and turn him into a weapon.
Millie must now search for her missing husband as he plans his escape from his ruthless captors.

Reflex is at times a difficult read, its a dark and unrelenting view of torture and human experimentation. But acting as an undercurrent through all of this is an adult and non-cliché portrayal of love and marriage keeping the main characters determined to find each other. Filled with spectacular characters (including one of my personal favourite villains in fiction in the form of Hyacinth Pope) and extremely well written. Reflex is everything a sequel should be, its a brilliant and gripping adult thriller that any fan of sci-fi, crime thrillers or the original novel should read.

A lot better than the first book (if you didn't like the first book), Such a goooood plot, I couldn't stop reading, I didn't want it to end, nicely thought out. :3 In the favourite books material. So refreshing to read a good book after so many disappointing books i'd read lately. New narrative style and better action (than the first) :3

Jumper was a far better book then the film that was made from it, and here we finally have a follow up. Set 10 years after Jumper, Davy and Millie are an established couple and very much grown up. As payback for being left alone, Davy undertakes occasional Government missions using his teleporting skills but is captured by someone with an agenda to brainwash and use him and his skills. In the meantime Millie searches for him and makes an important discovery that may change everything.
This is thoughtful well written stuff. Good plotting and characterisation with an intriguing premise. Very enjoyable and recommended.

I read Jumper like 7 years ago and I was looking forward to find the sequels, now that I had the chance to purchase the books it's not disappointing; It's well threaded plot, excellent characters and a good development of the story. The only thing it could have been improved is the Spanish of the Spanish speaking characters, it doesn't sound so natural. But it's an excelente book.

Intelligence development of the jumping idea. Wrapped up in a thrilling storyline this is best described as a Sci-Fi thriller. Compelling storyline and once I started I couldn't put it down thank you Steven Gould

Interesting plot line. Curious development where Millie became a jumper too. Would recommend as a good read. Look forward to number 3!

A good read, builds the characters into fuller more mature figures. Has a great emotional development and feels a more complete book.
