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, Booze and Bonking"

    Although I enjoyed Jump, I found it difficult to keep track of the vast array of characters and horses. For someone who knows little about horses and show jumping, I thought that there was too much emphasis on this aspect of the story and would have preferred more about the lives of the characters.

    This book would appeal to anyone who knows more about show jumping and horses than I do.

    Story
    "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

    "Good old Jilly Cooper"

    Haven't read a Jilly Cooper book for ages.

    Always a good read with plenty of laugh out loud comedy, unbeleivable characters that one cannot help but love, a good dose of sex and the typical Jilly Cooper romance between 2 unlikely characters

    I will always happily listen to any of her books and was not disappointed by this. A nice 26 hours so you really feel like you get a credits worth.

    A jolly good listen and well narrated

    Story
    "Too long and some odd bits of plot"

    I just found the whole thing rather strange. The fact that the rape of a 15-year-old was pretty much brushed under the carpet didn't really sit well with me - funny that!

    None of the characters are particularly likeable, which made it a bit difficult to invest in.

    "Disappointing narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story, it was typically Jilly Cooper - laughter, tears and a happy ending.


    What didn’t you like about Gerri Halligan’s performance?

    The narration was rather flat. She didn't seem to engage with the story.


    Could you see Jump! being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Possibly.


    Any additional comments?

    This story doesn't have the depth of earlier Jilly Cooper books but it's a good, entertaining read.
