    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - Stephen King is always a pleasure to read/listen to, and it is good to have the readings broken up into short stories rather than one huge novel.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Probably Clark in 'Rock and Roll Heaven' - we can all emphasize with getting lost on back roads - especailly before the days of GPS.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Very good - the narration made the stories come to life - even adding some sound effects, which was cool.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Pieces of Nightmares


    Any additional comments?

    As with most Steven King material, this did not disappoint.

    Story
    (247)

    Reeling from a painful break-up, English instructor and avid book lover Wesley Smith is haunted by his ex-girlfriend's parting shot: "Why can't you just read off the computer like everyone else?" He buys an e-book reader out of spite, but soon finds he can use the device to glimpse realities he had never before imagined, discovering literary riches beyond his wildest dreams...and all-too-human tragedies that surpass his most terrible nightmares.

    Would you listen to UR again? Why?

    Yes - Very good plot - hard to put down (pause the audio)


    What did you like best about this story?

    The grim alternate ending of the Cuban Missile Crisis


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    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)


    If you could rename UR, what would you call it?

    _A Tangle of Timelines_


    Any additional comments?

    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.
