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".
So, this book was good. It was nothing like Under the Dome(I loved that book), but it was good. Its only a couple of hours long, the time invested is easy and it is great for communting. Its a fun listen,short, and entertaining.
I haven't read Stephen King in a long time. This is a nice, quick short read about a timely subject. I have many friends who love their Kindle, but I just don't know. I loved King's almost satirical look at the device, and I love how he takes an ordinary object and makes it magical and mystical. Maybe some won't like the ending, but overall, it was a great short listen. Loved it!
This is my first review but have listened to hundreds of books. My only complaint is I really wish it was longer. There is nothing better for me than a good Stephen King book. I usually would not download one this short but did because my daughter who "reads" books wants an ebook reader. Glad I did. I hope her Kindle is white........or maybe.......................
It could be said this novella is two hour commerical for Amazon (I'm sure they didn't mind anymore than Fedex did when "Cast Away" came out) but still it was a light fun story. You can't help but love Stephen King and Holter Graham was perfect.
