Publisher's Summary

Following the death of her bullying husband, Etta Bancroft's selfish children move her to a village in the Cotswolds. One night, she discovers a filly, left to die in the snow. With help, Etta rescues the horse, and she and her friends form a syndicate to pay for her upkeep. As the horse recovers, she begins to show racing pedigree, so the syndicate enters her into a maiden hurdle - and are shocked at the result.

    "Jumping over the top!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A book for animal lovers.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jump!?

    Some terribly over the top bedroom scenes.


    Which character – as performed by Gerri Halligan – was your favorite?

    Dora Belvedon is performed as a great combination of jolly hockey sticks enthusiasm and gutter journalist.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The book goes for 27 hours!


    Any additional comments?

    Jilly Cooper is low-brow fiction, but she has a huge heart. Nothing is more important to her than human kindness.

    "I stand corrected"

    After years of refusing to read Jilly Cooper after having friends reccomend it to me, I was suprised at how much I enjoyed this. Well narrated, and what a bunch of characters. But I particularly liked how the animals were bought to life in this novel.

    "Filly Fun"

    This was quite a long audio book but it was never dull. There were lots of characters some sweat, some sexy, some obnoxious. Gerri Halligan did a good job with the voices making it a very easy book to listen to.

    "If you enjoyed "Riders" buy this !"

    Having greatly enjoyed the unabridged version of one of my old favourites Jilly Cooper's 'Riders' I was delighted to see her latest novel available by the same excellent narrator just before my holiday. It didn't disappoint - some great new characters and plenty of old ones and a brilliant story line - an ideal holiday companion. If you enjoyed 'Riders' I would highly recommend you buy this. Now we just need the rest of the unabridged Jilly back catalogue to come to Audible - 'Rivals' for starters please !

    "Do not buy this"

    I believe i have read every Jilly Cooper novel. I have been disappointed over the years as they deteriorated, but there was still an element of fun in them. This one has nothing. Absolutely nothing. The characters are more unbelievable than ever, they have no charm, and there is no delight to be had in meeting them. There is not one redeeming feature in this book. I'm not sure that i even managed to get to the end, as i fell asleep for a while, it became so monotonous and boring. There seemed to be nothing but ill will throughout the book. If i can find a way to wipe it out of my Audible library, i will do so, as it is an embarrassment to keep seeing it there. Please do not waste your money on this book when there are so many others to choose from.

    "Jump!"

    This was an absolutely brilliant book - and although it was very long it kept me riveted as I needed to find out what happened to each of the characters who became very real during the storytelling. Gerri Halligan is an excellent narrator who made each of the characters come alive - am looking forward to listening to more narrations by her.



    As usual Jilly Cooper knows how to thrill and excite the reader/listener

    "Absolutely fantastic!"
    Where does Jump! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Jump was a joy to listen to, I felt completely captivated by all the characters and relished how long it was. The moment finished it I listened to it another 2 times back to back!


    What other book might you compare Jump! to, and why?

    Jilly Cooper novels have there own particular style so I'm not sure what other novel I'd compare it to. It provides a great insight into high and rural society which is extremely captivating.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the scenes at the races and the scenes with Valent and Eta chatting together.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending is amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    perfecto!

    The perfect balance of romance, woe, passion and intrigue!
    A true Jilly Cooper classic!
    I love how the characters have progressed from previous stories and are so easy to fall in love with.
    I hoped the story would never end!

    "An amusing read!"

    jump is a fun book to read and had me laughing throughout. Admittedly I don't think it is as good as her earlier works such as Riders and Polo, I did still enjoy it. At times I wanted to cringe at Jilly for trying to be current, her depiction of a Muslim linked with terrorism made for uncomfortable reading. However, overall it is a fun book and has made me want to revisit her earlier books.
