Definitely NOT for kids
This title is apparently part of the "Audible Childrens Library." Whoever decided to put it there made a huge mistake. This book is full of explicit language, sex, and violence. If books were rated like movies, it would definitely get an "R."
It also is not the same story as the movie. I understand (from reading at Wikipedia) that the movie was very loosely based on an earlier book.
Those things being said, this was a very enjoyable story to listen to. It is one of the better books I've heard in a while. Just don't share it with your kids.

Does not follow the jumper universe.
Where does Jumper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Griffin's story is great as a stand-alone book. I first read Jumper in paperback about 20 years ago, but listened to it on Audible after it came out. I picked up Griffin's Story when the movie came out and was surprised by the abandonment of the Jumper Universe. If there's a flaw in Griffin Story, it's in Steven's adapting his Jumper universe to match the movie (Jumper). This novel is not consistant in many details with the universe that appeared in Jumper and Reflex, both excellent books.
Would you recommend Jumper to your friends? Why or why not?
I recommend this book as a stand-alone novel to anyone who hasn't read Jumper.
What about Ted Barker’s performance did you like?
Good delivery, good voice, no complaints.
Any additional comments?
Definitely worth a credit.
