    Griffin has a secret. It's a secret that he's sworn to his parents to keep, and never tell. Griffin is a Jumper: a person who can teleport to any place he has ever been. He knows that the men who killed his parents were looking for him, and he must never let them find him. Griffin has only two goals: to survive, and to kill the people who want him dead. And a jumper bent on revenge is not going to let anything stand in his way.

    "It's NOT the movie"
    Overall

    I thought this was a wonderful book. The story of a child forced to grow up too fast because of his special ability. Don't get this audiobook if you are looking for a re-telling of the story from the movie. It doesn't even parallel the movie. It is its own story, standing alone, but equally riveting.

    When the Imperial prison barge Purge - temporary home to 500 of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves - breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a star destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back - bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

    Morelos says: "Awesome atmospheric Star Wars horror"
    "Disappointing consider its a Star Wars novel"
    Overall

    This book is star wars meets zombies. Two very good storylines on their own, but horrible when combined. I found the reading to be melodramatic and the plot lacking significantly. The character development was decent, but the overall book suffered from the lack of a captivating storyline.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Arnold says: "A Terrific Book"
    "Aweful!"
    Overall

    This was a horrible book! The only thing more boring was the movie. While, I certainly didn't get the anti-theological theme that seems to be blazing around the movie from the book, I did get a long nap. The reading is dry and often unintelligible accents, the plot is slow to non-existent. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
