Yes - Very good plot - hard to put down (pause the audio)
The grim alternate ending of the Cuban Missile Crisis
Being able to differentiate between which character was talking by the inflection in the reader's voice (which is done extremely well in _11_22_63, right down to the Southern drawls and Russian accents)
_A Tangle of Timelines_
Excellent book, but a bit too short. Given the millions of alternate realities, King could have had fun with many other events. I feel he just scratched the surface with this alternate timelines theme. I'm currently listening to _11-22-63_ by King, which takes this theme and focuses on one event. It is like _UR_ was an appetizer to this longer novel.
The storyline is quick moving and suspenseful building to climax in typical Stephen King style though in my judgment is not among his best efforts, it’s still a worthwhile purchase and an enjoyable listening experience.
I was listening with a friend and fellow Stephen King fan and when the story ended we just looked at each other and said
Pacing, and suspense and the dimension that's added by hearing a story read.
Yes, unless you like an ending all wrapped up and not leaving you to finish the story in your imagination.
Yes. King is the only author who's work I will reread or relisten too.
Disclaimer, I have been a huge Stephen King fan since I read
This would have been good if I would have read it. The narrater had an irritating voice at times. This was my first audible book. I will try again.
I loved it ... Stephen grabs you in the first 3 minutes and never lets you go! There are elements of the many re-occurring themes, but the story stands up well on its own! Bravo Mr. King! Holter Graham's narration is wonderful!
I like S. King's work and writing. Some of his books appear to be transitional pieces between other larger works and to me, UR is one of those. Interesting as a story but if I had it to do over, I wouldn't buy this one.
If you are thinking of buying a Kindle from Amazon then get this book. This is a add for the Kindle, but the story can't get going for advertising! I wasted a credit on this!
Hated the story, felt like it was a cheap advertisement for kindle. Love King, but this is not worthy of my time. He must have gotten paid for the number of times he said "kindle".
