An Unabridged Novella Unavailable In Any Collection!


Tapping into our primal fears of modern technology that made Cell a #1 bestseller, Stephen King sets his sights on the latest high-tech gadget in UR, in which a mysterious e-book reader opens a disturbing window into other worlds.

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.

From vintage cars (Christine and From a Buick 8) to household appliances (Maximum Overdrive) to exercise equipment (Stationary Bike), Stephen King has mesmerized us with tales of apparently ordinary machines that take on lives of their own. UR gives this classic theme an up-to-the-minute spin, resulting in a horror masterpiece for our time and for the ages.

About the Author:

Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His recent work includes The Bill Hodges Trilogy—Mr. Mercedes (an Edgar Award winner for Best Novel), Finders Keepers, and End of Watch; the short story collection The Bazaar of Bad Dreams; Revival; Doctor Sleep, and Under the Dome. His novel 11/22/63 was named a top ten book of 2011 by The New York Times Book Review and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller. His epic works The Dark Tower and It are the basis for major motion pictures. He is the recipient of the 2014 National Medal of Arts and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.

From AudioFile:

In a typical King plot a mundane object is associated with improbable effects, in this case, multiple universes. Holter Graham plays it straight, dropping flat American accents over King's utilitarian prose, with just enough differentiation between characters to avoid confusion. In the brief span available, Graham gets the most mileage out of a teenaged character whose changing voice is note-perfect. Overall, his narration is full of life as it enhances numerous first-person digressions. There's a chance for Graham to work an accent early on when he adopts a Southern twang for a fictitious book description, but, sadly, the opportunity only comes once. Written exclusively for Amazon's Kindle e-reader, UR is an extended infomercial for the device, but it balances its promotion with a short running time. A.Z.W. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
