Exo By Steven Gould

Complicated High school Boys Global climate change refugees and genocide Orbital mechanicsBut Cent isn’t easily daunted and neither are Davy and Millie her parents She’s going to make some changes in the wor Loved it Review in progressI have now read 4 Jumper books 1 AU novel and 1 short story I can honestly tell you this has become my favorite since we re solidly in the geeking out with science and dreaming the impossible I don t want to spoil a thing but by the title it should tell you where the story is going It s so worth it Cent is again the main protagonist but we get as usual get a few chapters from other POVs even one or two that come completely by surprise but totally make sense I adore the Rice family they are truly extraordinary Hmm somehow extraordinary just seems so pedestrian after this bookWhat I really appreciate the most is how Gould s obsession with details always leads to and interesting tech and scientific knowledge I am no engineer but I d imagine a lot of this book would pass mustard without uestion and any bits that stretch laws only stretch in the realm of possibility and theory It s not like it s some new fad either Even in Reflex there is possible my favorite moment of any book I ve ever read where Millie considers hacking into a computer and decides to pass on the the whole endeavour knowing there just wasn t enough timeHonestly I can t keep talking about this book without ruining too much but suffice to say The Rice family takes things to a new level when Cent tries out her hand with contributing to the world It s a good time all around Honest If you re a fan you will feel very at home Suffice to say this isn t the first time nor I suspect the last where you ll really be sad you don t possess their ability yourselfview spoilerPS The Womaned Space Program is totally badass Feminism FTW hide spoiler

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’ 35 stars Too much science info dumping nearly made this novel impossible to get through I had to skim certain sections If you re into the characters and can already suspend disbelief why does it matter I am sure it does to certain readers but not me On the Flash TV show they spout out a fact like you need to reach 600 mph to run up walls but make sure to keep that velocity on the way down that s all I need It probably isn t true but I don t care Now this book there is a lot of info dumping about building a pressure suit to withstand outer space building a space station out of dirigibles the hulls protected by ice well a lot of scientific facts and theories but in the end it s probably not as easy as the writer thinks and I get too tired to care For another novel that did this better see Red Thunder by John VarleyAside from these barriers it is a fairly enjoyable continuation of the story of Cent Millicent and her Mom Millie and Dad Davy Cent develops her Jumper powers in ways her parents never imagined and deals with her friends made in the last novel There are some great girl power scenes as 17 year old Cent starts a business in outer space and has funny interactions with the military and NASAAnother problem I had there was a threat to Cent s family an evil organization out to get them which was the main subject of the 2nd book Reflex They are still out to get the family but like the third book they really only appear in the last 10% of the book It feels like a cheap way to get a climax and I could see how they were going to be dealt with early on

Steven Gould º 9 SUMMARY

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 Of all the Jumper novels I enjoyed this one the least by far To say it needs editing is to say the Titanic had a little trouble on its maiden voyage A little research and technical detail can be a wonderful thing Too much and the flow becomes bogged down and unreadable Even a little tension and resistance to Cent s space program by bureaucrats or male chauvinists would have given the story the conflict it needed Instead we have the occasional and poorly structured afterthoughts of a conspiracy and an otherwise strong female lead character at the mercy of a dishonest boyfriend with a rather unconvincing sob story

    This was the most joyous book that I've read in a long timeThis is the first of the Jumper series to change it's focus from how would society react the a select few people that can teleport to what could a few teleporters accomplish that would otherwise be impractical This transition makes a lot of sense Davy grew up in fairly poo

    My favorites of this series are the first Jumper before the awful movie and eually awful novelization and the latest before this Impulse featuring the teenage daughter of Davy and MillieThis one takes place not long after Impulse ends I appreciate how Gould is trying to do different things with these books This one is an earnest attempt to evoke all the gosh wow about space that excited my peers back in the fifties and sixties I d

    In a nutshell the author is trying too hardOther reviewers have expressed the same frustration Namely that Gould obsesses over the technical and scientific elements of his tale that a teenage girl can teleport into low earth orbit at the expense of a compelling narrative or believable charactersThe premise is ludicrous enough that anyone willing to buy into the story is clearly willing to suspend their reaso
