    Duuuuude I don’t know whether I should give it 4 or 5 stars This is straight outtaI even listened to the same song that I associate TDT series with which is Heaven Earth by Two Steps From Hell if you’re interestedThis is one of those stories when you think gosh I wish it happened to me at least in the beginning What would you do if you’d have a Kindle and you could download the works of all the authors from all the parallel worlds? I honestly would starve to death because really who needs food?Imagine having 3 other Harry Potter books The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring and the last book in The Kingkiller Chronicles By the way have you checked Rothfuss’ review of the last one? It’s one of the most popular reviews on Goodreads and it talks about time travelers But I know they aren’t time travelers They’re people who own an UR Kindle and Stephen King is to blame because all things serve the TowerThis is me fangirling Omg this book was so goodSo maybe 5 stars is the right choicePS – typing up one of those books and publishing it isn’t an option yeah I thought of it they thought of it too The Paradox Laws will fuck you up and The Dark Tower world isn’t a merciful one How about total annihilation?

    Kindle Ur KingI confess I have committed a sin I have avoided reading novels from The Grandmaster writer Stephen King I repent I will make my upmost effort in reading my way through The Dark Tower series one book a month minimumKing was one of the first to delve into publishing via the kindle from this genre This novella will be looked upon in the future as the genesis of the kindle era His talent is to turn anything into a craft from kindle to Riding the Bullet Great creative storyEXCERPT “ Does this gadget of yours have a smell?” “Nope” Henderson replied “Not really But when you turn the pageshere with this buttonthey kind of flutter like in a real book and I can go to any page I want and when it sleeps it shows pictures of famous writers and it holds a charge” ” “ “The Tower trembles; the worlds shudder in their courses The rose feels a chill as ofwinter” ”“ What seemed major—what loomed over his life and very sanity—were the riches hidden within that slim pink panel of plastic He thought of all the writers whose passing he had mourned from Norman Mailer and Saul Bellow to Donald Westlake and Evan Hunter; one after another Thanatos stilled the magic voices and they spoke no But now they could They could speak to him He threw back the bedclothes The Kindle was calling him Not in a human voice but in an organic one It sounded like a beating heart Poe’s tell tale heart coming from inside his briefcase instead of from under the floorboards and— Poe Good God he had never checked Poe ”

    While I was listening to this one I said to a friend on Google Chat You know it's crazy how much Stephen King affects meI'm listening to this audio book and I have a knot in my stomach out of nervousness This about sums up what I love about Stephen King Even in his shortest stories he is able to take me out of my world and transplant me into the one he's created He's able to make me not only know his characters but care about them and root for them and worry for their well being I wish that this was something that authors understood It's not enough to tell me a story if I don't like or don't understand the characters in it It's not enough to craft a complicated or ingenious plot if I can't identify with the people in the story enough to put myself in their place I have never had an issue with identifying with a King character I may not like them but I don't have to like them because like real people they have a life of their own and do with it what they will What they do is organic and true to their characters and isn't shaped by King into something fake to fit the storylineI don't mean to harp on like this but it always amazes me how much I fall in love with King's characters especially after I've read other books where the characters are flat lifeless things that just move from scene to scene doing whatever the storyline reuires without a personality or free will of their own Alright harping to stop Now I loved the concept of this book and it thrilled me to no end seeing the King universe tied into the story The connection didn't feel as unplanned as some of his other books do like he sought to write a book that tied in the Dark Tower series with a story about a Kindle but even so it was pretty cool I loved the concept of what the UR edition Kindle could do I would absolutely be searching out of King's works I would have to cover the Kindle in plastic to avoid ruining it by drool but still I would be in heaven If you haven't read this one I recommend it It's a short read the audio is great and it's a mind trip like most of the DT stuff is

    I don’t know that I’ve ever yearned from something as terrifying as Wesley’s pink Kindle“A crazy certainty had arisen in his mind a hand or perhaps a claw was going to swim up from the grayness of the Kindle's screen grab him by the throat and yank him in”Imagine a world ten years in the past Electronic books and e readers are just beginning to take the world by storm Wesley Smith is a college English literature professor who after a nasty breakup partially over his distaste for the new trend of reading on a device has decided to bite the bullet and purchase his first ever Kindle from It arrives sooner than it should sans instructions and sporting an odd pink color instead of the white of all other Kindles Also unusual is the fact that under the ‘Experimental’ section is a handful of subsections called Urs Ur is evidently representative of alternate realities in which authors lived longer or died younger attached themselves to different genres or penned and greater works than are present in our reality If this doesn’t sound like an incredible and awe inspiring addition to the Kindle store you and I view the world very differently“He also dreamed No images; only words Titles Endless lines of titles many of them of undiscovered masterpieces As many titles as there were stars in the sky”Unfortunately there is information about these other worlds available and Wesley along with a student and a fellow professor plumbs the depths of how these other worlds differ from ours and what events led to those variations This information is enough to fracture even the strongest minds But what really sets Wesley on a collision course with destruction is his discovery of information that will impact his own world and the decisions he makes with that information could come back to bite him“Most people are optimists although they may claim they are not People who call themselves realists are often the biggest optimists of all” One of the most fun aspects of this little story besides the amazing pink Kindle is how it relates to other works from King There’s a strong nod to 112263 but the deepest link is with The Dark Tower I’ve only ever read The Gunslinger but this story rekindled see what I did there? my interest in the series I’m now insanely curious and will hopefully get back to the Tower in the near future“The Tower trembles; the worlds shudder in their courses The rose feels a chill as of winter” Surprise of surprises I actually loved the ending to this little story While there are elements of the concept that are undeniably scary there was a level of happiness to the climax that left me feeling content I just really wish I could find this magical Kindle I think I could stay away from looking into the happenings of the other realities if I could just read new works from favorite authors Isn’t that a literary daydream held by countless bookworms?“Because sometimes longshots came in Both for good and for ill”A final note I love that this wasn’t available in a physical form for the first nearly six years of its life First published as an ebook in 2009 UR didn’t make its first physical debut until its publication as part of King’s 2015 short story collection The Bazaar of Bad Dreams Isn’t that poetic?

    Update 2118Reading The Book of Lost Tales by Tolkien the first book of the twelve in the histories of middle earth In Tolkien's earliest conception he creates a magic sun called Ur Read this in King's newest collection I loved this story It reminded me of how much I loved experiencing the Dark Tower world The premise guy buys a Kindle and connects with the DT world Imagine your favorite authors in other worlds They have novels I looked at my favorites of favorites shelf and felt the obsession of the idea Steinbeck Dumas Tolkien Jordan Twain Imagine reading novels they never wrote or even read in this world I'm glad this Kindle's not real I'm not joking I'd be in my counsellors office for a new addiction and maybe some antipsychotic medicine for embracing delusional realities Excellent read Classic King The story starts slow but ends well I've found the best way to enjoy King read other writers If you compare King with King you may be disappointed because his style changes over the years Compare him with other authors and see how great he stands out I can't read King too much because he ends up my sole source of fiction I also try to write like him and that never works

    what the hell is this crap? If you check out my reviews you'll know I am a serious SK fan for over 12 years I have practically devoured any and everything he's written and while I can't list them all among my favorites I will say I usually can find SOMETHING in them that garners a bit of affection for the story Not with this dreck I have never been disappointed I was so excited to find an SK novel exclusive to Kindle readers and just like Charlie before me I could hardly contain my joy at finding my golden ticket I checked out the reviews and they were mixed but I usually make my own decisions about things like this so I ordered it anyhow I should have listened to the reviews It's almost as if he said How can I exploit the success of my popular novels without actually doing any real work? Also why the Kindle infomercials if this story is only available on Kindle doesn't it stand to reason that we already have a Kindle we're reading it on? If I wanted a product description or uick start guide I would have read the crap that came in the box when I brought my own possibly with much satisfaction than this novella Such a disappointment I know I know repetitious but trueand I KNOW my favorite author can do better The book I'm currently in the middle of Full Dark No Stars is a testament to that EDIT After my cooling off period I have come back to add on ONE additional star because I did like the premise of alternate dimensions and realities and an endless mine of untapped literary gold That's like bookworm porn so 2 stars for that SK but none for the rest of it

    UR is an extremely short novella and also happened to be my introduction to Stephen King The premise is pretty fascinating a university English professor Wesley Smith orders an Kindle after a fight with his girlfriend during which she rages at him for spending too much time reading books When the device arrives with alarming speed it's inexplicably pink and has a mysterious menu called 'UR Functions' Wesley uickly realises that this menu gives him the ability to read a plethora of previously unheard of works by famous writers At first he assumes this is some kind of elaborate hoax but the he reads the he becomes convinced that the books are genuine and that the Kindle offers a portal into alternate realities where they really have been written But this discovery grows into an obsession and of course it comes at a priceThe story is a fun spin on the idea of ardent readers being hostile towards new technology and the idea of having access to millions of undiscovered parallel universe books by your favourite authors is thrilling any book lover can imagine how addictive this would be It really is a short story though and although I loved the plot especially the view spoilerParadox Police hide spoiler

    The Tower trembles; the worlds shudder in their courses The rose feels a chill as of winter I love this uote and I love this story Not only is it a giant HEAP of fun it's filled to the brim with Dark Tower references right down to an appearance by the low men in yellow coats yes pleaseThe premise is pure King and would have made an AWESOME Twilight Zone episode I can just hear Rod Serling now Wesley Smith is a professor of literature and his mistress is the book An unlikely impulse to purchase an electronic reader opens a window through which can be viewed infinite versions of time and space If knowledge is power then Wesley has just become the most powerful man in our universe He has also just crossed over into the Twilight Zone Whether you're a fan of the Dark Tower novels or not this is vintage King

    UR started kind of slow for me At first it wasn't too interesting Then all of sudden it picked up and I enjoyed it I like the Dark Tower relation and the idea of alternate realities If you've read The Dark Tower series by King you already know about this Anyways UR is a nice uick read with an interesting idea for a storyline
