Overview

Exo (Jumper Series #4) by Steven Gould


Award-winning author, Steven Gould, returns to the world of his classic novel Jumper in Exo, the sequel to Impulse, blending the drama of high school with world shattering consequences.

Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be—sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it’s hard to keep a secret like that. And there are people, dangerous people, who work for governments and have guns, who want to make you do just this one thing for them. And when you’re a teenage girl things get even more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.

But Cent isn’t easily daunted, and neither are Davy and Millie, her parents. She’s going to make some changes in the world.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Fell in love with jumper and this is on par with the rest of the series

I really like the other jumper books by Gould. This is just horrible unfortunately. It's all technical...you can go for pages and pages of technical facts about spacesuits and this and that and NEVER miss a moment of the thin plot. It's as if Gould wanted to show off his ability to do tech research. Well he's excellent at it but WHO CARES? It makes for completely boring writing. A huge disappointment.

Fast and light read. Good character development. And just a little bit predictable.

I really do love this series! Jumper was the first book that I read entirely in one sitting.

A beautiful and inventive book with a wonderful female lead. We need more books of this caliber.

So what would you do, if YOU could jump? This is a great coming-of-age story for Cent, 1st seen in the book Impulse, and the daughter of Davy & Millie. Raised and mostly home-schooled by her teleporting parents, Cent dreams big and then pursues her dreams with a mix of determination & sass. Lots of girl power in this book, along with emotional confusion that I can completely relate to. Far from being bogged down in describing pressure/space suits, I found the tech details interesting and relevent. Every time I read this book I want to take on the world!

This is the first book in the series that took me more than three days to get through. The rest I can tear through in a weekend - even on multiple read throughs. This one took me three weeks. It read like "The Two Towers" in that stuff happened at the beginning, and stuff happened at the end. But the middle? The middle felt like a test of commitment. Like the research just got away from Mr. Gould. And if you have a truly deep passion for the mechanics of space travel, this was probably one of a handful of novels that stepped up to the plate for you. But if you're interest is anything less than grad school level, bad news. It's gonna be slog. That said. Good story. Enjoyed the continuing adventures of the Rice family. Would like to spend a little more time with Davy next time.

5 stars. I enjoyed the continuing adventures of Cent. I read it in 2- 2 hour blocks and cannot wait to reread it. Steven Gould is one of my automatic go to authors, he doesn't let you down.
