Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents' arms. She's teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she's never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger. Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.

Fun, exciting, fast paced
I thoroughly enjoyed the main character.
I would recommend this book, and in fact the whole series, to anyone. Way better than the JUMPER movie. All the books have been fun, fresh, interesting and compelling.
This is just the perfect next book in the JUMPER series. the first 2 were on the dark side and this one lets the light in and is simply a joy to read or listen to. Once again Emily Rankin is at the top of her game reading this story. Emily fully immerses you in the life of "Cent" making you feel all the emotions this young lady is having in the story. You laugh, you cry, you feel Cent's joy and fears as she learns the ins and outs and dangers of being a jumper. That is what this story is about and what Emily Rankin fully projects in her reading. Even though this is the story of David's and Milly's daughter, it isn't a story just for girls. There is plenty of action, intrigue, and witty dialogue to satisfy even male readers. So if you like the "Jumper" series, you will love this book. Get it now, you won't be disappointed!
There is no difference between the 2, but i prefer the on the go option. With the audio book i can multitask and get work done while listening to the great story.
Great continuation of the Jumper series. Steven Gould does a great job of making me like Cent and her story. Can't wait for the next book!!
I like the other reader more, but Emily did a great job reading as Cent, and it made more sense having a female voice, from the perpective of Cent.
Pretty much, finished the book within 2 days after i got it.
Impulse is a return to the universe of Jumper and Reflex. Jumper is a favorite book of mine and I really enjoyed impulse as well. It was fantastic to meet these characters again - and to meet a new one, Cent, who I think is the strongest of the bunch.
This book is funny, exciting, well written and well narrated. Emily Rankin does a stellar job bringing the characters to life, most especially Cent.
Reflex and Jumper
Much better than Jumper.
I first discovered Steven Gould’s Jumper Series from one of Audible's sales. I really liked the first two installments, but I found the second book "Reflex" a tough read since it took me to some really dark places. The third book "Impulse" is more like the first book and a very enjoyable listen. I would have preferred if they had kept Macleod Andrews for Davys voice and let Emily do Milly and Cent (she does an excellent job, but for me it was a bit distracting). Although the book is a coming-of-age story of many sorts, I still found it intriguing. It was with some dread I listened to the book since I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I am satisfied how things plays out.
Regarding my choice of headline... Come on, Mr. Gould. Three Jumper-books in more than two decades, I am sure you could cut the time between books in half. :)
I'd listen to it again so that I could pay attention to more details.
The other books in this series.
Haven't listened to any others.
No, because I wanted to have time to think about what I was hearing.
Listening to this book made me hope that Gould writes another in the series.
Not for me:. I have no interest in how a 15 year old girl adjusts to public school.
The first two books in this series vere excellent.
I first read Gould's Jumper when it came out in pb more than 20 years ago. It was a great story and well executed. I found out he had a sequel after the movie "Jumper" came out. The sequel was okay, not as good as Jumper, but well done except for the change in the "Jumper" universe to match that of Griffin and the movie. The change was not for the better.
I did not listen to the reviewer who complained that this was a child's (young adult) story, after all, I read the first Harry Potter and it was aimed at a similar age. However, this book comes across as a 14 year old girl's pov (I know Cent is 16). If I had really wanted to read a book on teenage angst and the perils of high school gym... well, I wouldn't want to read that story. Unfortunately, after four hours of listening, I don't know that I can go on with it. There's just nothing happening.
I may update this review if I manage to finish the book, but it isn't looking good. For someone who wrote Jumper, this is a total departure.
I don't know, a couple of teenie boppers?
In the future, pay more attention to the listener reviews.
If I had a teen of 16 - 18 years old I might suggest it to them - - after the homework was done. This is not a book for an older person.
Young self made business man with plenty of time on the road to enjoy the world of audiobooks.
some teleporting books can be hard to follow but this one is exceptional, followed it with easy, great narrator and great story,
just became a fan of Steven Gould.
I hope there is a second book as the ending was abrupt its still a good ending, but got so involved with the characters i want to keep going along with there journey.
