Descripción del producto

Críticas

Gould makes an auspicious debut with this playful and moving look at a hallowed science fiction concept: teleportation. Gould gives us no teleportation chambers, no shimmery beaming a la Star Trek , no worries about mingling one's own molecules with a fly's--here only one person can teleport, and he has no idea how he does it. David Rice, age 17, first "jumps" spontaneously in order to escape his abusive father. Having run away, he learns to control his strange talent, using it first to survive on the street and then to set himself up comfortably via bank robbery. Gould does not focus on moral implications so much as keep the plot moving quickly. David searches for his long-lost mother, meets and woos a girl, enjoys the pleasures of a leisurely life in New York and (despite his best efforts) eventually runs afoul of the authorities, who of course want to understand his powers and then put him to work for them. Short fiction has earned this author a reputation in "hard" science fiction, and he applies similar logic to teleportation (though he glosses over some points to make the story work). His warm, delightful and compulsively readable novel displays assured storytelling skill.

Praise for Steven Gould

"Jumper was one of the great sf novels of the 1990s--one of those rare books that can be read either as a young adult novel or a book for adults, like "Ender's Game" or vintage Heinlein. [...] Now there's a sequel to "Jumper", called "Reflex", and last night I ended up burning about two hours' worth of jealously hoarded sleep-time to finish this thing. [...] This kind of book doesn't come along all that often, and when it does, it's cause for celebration--run, don't walk."--Cory Doctorow

"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, exploring what the ability to 'jump' means in the life of this particular young man.... 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

""Jumper" is very good indeed... in its concept and execution it harks back to a time in SF which could probably teach any of the new writers a thing or two about simplicity--of concept and execution.... All in all a very satisfying novel that answers for you the age old question, 'What if I could...?'"--"Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine"
