Summary

The gripping story of life on the inside and the outside of one of Britain's toughest prisons.

Donna Brunos worships her husband and is devastated when he is jailed for armed robbery. Georgio swears he's been set up and persuades Donna to help him escape. Implementing 'the jump' takes Donna into a twilight world she never believed existed - a world of brutal sex and casual violence. Finally, she is confronted by a series of shattering revelations that threaten not only everything she believes in but also, ultimately, her own life....

Brilliant Listen

Listened to half a dozen Martina Cole books and this is the best so far. Great story line and Annie Aldington brings the story to life. Best narrator by far

Usual high standard

For those who are fans of Martina's style you'll love this, it's also one of her earlier works and more focused on the view from inside prison which is great-also great twist.

Great story

Another great twisting story from Martina. I would say the lead character 'Donna' irritated me but I'm guessing that was supposed to happen.

Twists all the way

A typical Martina Cole setting, amongst villains and the more pure in heart. Loyal, naive Donna is willing to support her husband, Georgio, in everything. Events and knowledge see her evolve into a strong, assertive woman, whose integrity helps her become a survivor in its truest sense. Annie Aldington does great credit to this long, involved story in my opinion. A great listen.

Good story - Great narrator

What did you like most about The Jump?

This was classic Martina Cole, and the narrator Annie Aldington is just perfect for the job.

What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Having heard several of Martina Cole books read by Annie I wouldn't want to read the books. She just is the characters, one can identify the various people purely by her range of voices, which makes her a super narrator for me.

Annie Aldington is the BEST

Would you consider the audio edition of The Jump to be better than the print version?

I love Annie's range on accents. Though, her scottish was a bit of a let down. Anyhoo, she is by far the best narrator Audible has. The only bit I didn't like fully about this book is the unsavoury part of the plot which I will not spoil for others. It made it difficult to get through some parts and I probably won't listen to this book again. I mean I finished it because I needed to know how it all turned out. BUT i normally re listen to Martina/Annie books a few times in case I missed something and for entertainment value. But because of the aforementioned unsavoury element of the plot, I can't re-listen to this one. I really had hoped that Donna would have done something better with the money... you know?

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Donna should have used the money as a sanctuary or other sort of foundation for the victims.

What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Interesting Jump

A typical Martina Cole novel. Repetitive in places, intriguing, but not a best seller.
Overall an average listen, good narration.
