I haven't seen the movie "Jumper," but I read the book over Spring Break.  It was written by Steven Gould and published in 1992.  If you like speculative fiction and adventure, I recommend it (it's out in paperback now because of the movie).  The characters are quite well written and the book kept me up nights, turning the pages.  I don't know how well the transition to film went, but I may buy the DVD when it's available to see.  The story is about an abused young man who learns he can teleport, instantly transport himself anywhere he has been before.  It's interestingly relevant, as well, since it involves global terrorism along with the personal story.
