"The theme of Steven Gould's "Jumper" is, quite literally, escape. The first half of "Jumper "has a charm and bounce that carry the reader past the implausibilities inherent in the premise--imagine a Holden Caulfield with the power of life or death over the jerks and phonies." --"The New York Times Book Review" "Gould proves once again that in the hands of a wonderful, perceptive writer, there is no such thing as an old idea. What sets "Jumper "apart from other novels that dip back into the well of the masters is that Gould brings his own keen empathy and rigorous intelligence to the story.....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 twelve again to have a great time reading it." --Orson Scott Card
