Publisher's Summary

The gripping story of life on the inside and the outside of one of Britain's toughest prisons.
Donna Brunos worships her husband and is devastated when he is jailed for armed robbery. Georgio swears he's been set up and persuades Donna to help him escape. Implementing 'the jump' takes Donna into a twilight world she never believed existed - a world of brutal sex and casual violence. Finally, she is confronted by a series of shattering revelations that threaten not only everything she believes in but also, ultimately, her own life....

Annie Aldington is the BEST

Would you consider the audio edition of The Jump to be better than the print version?

I love Annie's range on accents. Though, her scottish was a bit of a let down. Anyhoo, she is by far the best narrator Audible has. The only bit I didn't like fully about this book is the unsavoury part of the plot which I will not spoil for others. It made it difficult to get through some parts and I probably won't listen to this book again. I mean I finished it because I needed to know how it all turned out. BUT i normally re listen to Martina/Annie books a few times in case I missed something and for entertainment value. But because of the aforementioned unsavoury element of the plot, I can't re-listen to this one. I really had hoped that Donna would have done something better with the money... you know?

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Donna should have used the money as a sanctuary or other sort of foundation for the victims.

What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Emotion

Interesting Jump

A typical Martina Cole novel. Repetitive in places, intriguing, but not a best seller.
Overall an average listen, good narration.

Brilliant Listen

Listened to half a dozen Martina Cole books and this is the best so far. Great story line and Annie Aldington brings the story to life. Best narrator by far

Usual high standard

For those who are fans of Martina's style you'll love this, it's also one of her earlier works and more focused on the view from inside prison which is great-also great twist.

The sadness of abuse so out of control.

Scary story,
But I fully realise it's happening all around the world .

Wonderful writer immensely deep full of detail but quite
horrific it's happening now! People are totally unaware
But even worse do they care!
Thank you for all your energy and hard work to create this book.

great story; enhanced by the fantastic narrator

If you could sum up The Jump in three words, what would they be?

London East End

What did you like best about this story?

gritty

Any additional comments?

the narrator definitely adds to the story by the fantastic accents of the London east end. I have listened to all Martina Cole's story's because of the narrator.
