Customer Review

on 24 March 2014
Gould's original timeline is continued here. Jumper was a meticulous voyage of discovery of a boy who found he could teleport and used it to escape very real perils only to find in himself the courage to face up to responsibilities. The second book, Reflex, took on in similar detail and logic what might happen if the wrong people found out. The third feels like a step backwards, with a rather staid family dynamic and school setting for a new generation. It's clearly written, easy to read, the detail is there again, but the excitement of discovery and tension of the secret are almost lost despite the freer use of locale. That said, I remain a fan of this plot thread for its refusal to over-dramatise, super-heroise or go for the cinematic. Keep it real, Mr Gould, and find a more gripping idea for your next one please!
