And a jumper bent on revenge is not going to let anything stand in his way.Jumper is a major motion picture released by 20th Century Fox in February 2008.More
"This is a book that you won't want to miss. It reminded me of why I first came to love science fiction, and yet I didn't have to be 12 again to have a great time reading it." (Orson Scott Card)

Not for kids
Does not follow the jumper universe.
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.
I recommend this book as a stand-alone novel to anyone who hasn't read Jumper.
Good delivery, good voice, no complaints.
Definitely worth a credit.
