Reading a Stephen King book is always a sure thing for me. I know I'm going to be absorbed by the story. UR was no exception, but it felt like the story hadn't been developed enough, that it should have been longer. The ending felt sudden and unexpected, as if Mr King only had an hour left to finish the book. Regardless, I enjoyed the listen and look forward to the next journey with Mr King.
Some people may listen to this and consider it as just an ad for the Kindle, and I can understand that assumption if you only listen to the first 30-45 minutes. It is obvious that King has a liking for the device, and I cannot assume there was no marketing involved, but there is still a very good story here. Short, and to the point, it is easy to identify with the main character. I personally love the concept, and only wish it were explored in a longer format. That being said, it is definitely worth a listen.
I think Amazon must have paid Stephen King for every time he uses the word "kindle." There's no other explanation for this story. The premise of the story is not bad, but it's like a 2-hour commercial for Amazon's kindle product... I feel like a sucker for downloading it! I kept thinking it would get better, and it was short, so I kept listening. I wish I would have followed my gut and just turned it off after the first half hour.
I liked the story, a good way to kill a couple of hours. Anything that leads back to the Tower makes me happy. Still, he's written better things. I feel I would have enjoyed it more at half the asking price.
This book was tedious and pointless. total waste of time and credit. I love audible but absolutely hated this book. I hung in the even after the boring first two chapters but the ending was so feeble it was never worth it.
Anyone who loves to read wishes their favorite author had written more or will write more in the future. If I had a magic Kindle that opened other "UR's" I would never leave my house. This short story was inventive and reminded me of The Twilight Zone. I love Stephen King and I how there is an "UR" of his secret works out there somewhere for us to discover. Great narration too!
