Reflex: A Jumper Novel Reviews
While not as good as Jumper, Reflex is a solid good read. The only complaint I had was that Davy spent the majority of the story a prisoner (although the torture scenes were fantastically vivid), while his wife searched the world to find him. Had I taken the time to read the reviews (as I did for JUMPER), it would have given me a clearer picture of what to expect. This story is not like the first one.
I read Reflex almost immediately after finishing Jumper and I loved it! Mr. Gould does a great job of continuing the story and expanding the world he has created. Unlike Jumper, Reflex has a central villain, which is something I thought Jumper was lacking. The villains in this story are awesome, mostly because of how complex they are; some are even victims in their own right. I highly recommend this one for fans of the first book - you will not be disappointed.
How does one stop a jumper? Well, we get to find out. I really liked this follow-up book to Jumper. That being said, I'd love to see some explanation about how a non-jumper might become a jumper. Can anyone do it if conditions are right? The explanation would have to cover how Davy became one, as well as how someone else might be able to gain the ability.
Audible book review:
So amazing. I never could have seen this story coming after the ending of Jumper. David is all grown up. He's married and he has a pretty sweet job with the government. all of that changes when he is kidnapped by an unknown enemy. Why do they want him, how do they plan to keep him, and most importantly what will it take to control him?
If you enjoyed the first book, you'll love this one. This fleshes out Millie's character a lot more than in the first book and serves as a sort of origin story for her, just as the first book did for Davy. Though the copy on the back of the book does not reveal what Millie learns she can do, it is stated more than once on the Amazon page for the book. It would have been a more satisfying twist if I hadn't known that prior to reading the book.
Like many, I read the original Jumper because I felt the movie just couldn't be the whole story, and I was pleased when I found a very strong story without the mention of Paladins in the original book. The book felt like it was told through the eyes of a teenager, which felt good, worked well and lifted the first book up a bit out of a few errors here and there that slipped passed the editor and typesetter.
I love the "Jumper" books. Every one of the Novel length books is a page turner and I would recommend this series to any Sci Fi fan. Reflex is the sequel to "Jumper" and continues the adventures of Davy and Millie, who is now his wife. This book makes you want to root for Davy, to first survive and then overcome his trials and tribulations. A great series and a good read.
