  3. This review also appears on FingerFlow.com, a site for review and discussion of creative works Having read the first two Jumper books by Steven Gould, I was interested in seeing if this book would fit into the continuity of the books or the movie adaptation which departed from the books significantly Apparently, it s the latter, much to the detriment of the book It s quite unfortunate actually, that this book and the movie seem to overwrite the events of the first two books with a complete This review also appears on FingerFlow.com, a site for review and discussion of creative works Having read the first two Jumper books by Steven Gould, I was interested in seeing if this book would fit into the continuity of the books or the movie adaptation which departed from the books significantly Apparently, it s the latter, much to the detriment of the book It s quite unfortunate actually, that this book and the movie seem to overwrite the events of the first two books with a completely different story.Personally, I preferred the world of the first two books, where jumpers were extremely rare, jumping didn t damage the environment around the jumper and bring debris from one location to the next, and most ...

  7. I didn t read the first Jumper book, because I saw the Jumper movie with that talentless hack Hayden Christensen A friend of mine recommended this book, and I decided it was worth a try And it was, indeed.This is the story of Griffin, of course He s a Jumper Someone who can teleport anywhere, by just thinking about it No technological gadget required Just some natural ability he has.For some reason, this Jumping ability is seen as a threat to National Security So, there s this secret orga I didn t read the first Jumper book, because I saw the Jumper movie with that talentless hack Hayden Christensen A friend of mine recommended this book, and I decided it was worth a try And it was, indeed.This is the story of Griffin, of course He s a Jumper ...
