UR by Stephen King: A Book Review

Book Description

 February 12, 2009
From Publishers Weekly

Wesley Smith buys an Amazon Kindle to keep his mind off his recent nasty breakup, but he finds that his version is no ordinary e-reading device. Smith's Kindle has a special Ur option, which reveals the future and all the works his favorite authors have written in parallel dimensions. However, when the Ur delivers news of terrible events on the way, Smith must decide if he should interfere in fate. 


I loved this short story! Fantastic King all around. I really enjoyed the tie in to the Dark Tower series, and would love to go back and reread those books now! 

Honestly, I'm pretty jealous of having a kindle that can get books from different universes.... 

This is only available on Kindle books through, but I'd say it's worth the few dollars that it costs on there. This may stink for some people who do not own Kindles; however, there are free Kindle apps for smart phones and for computers that may be worth downloading.

Overall, I gave it 5 stars out of 5. I'm also biased on loving anything King writes that is related to the Dark Tower books.

Here is the link to Amazon if you're interested in purchasing it for  $3.19
