This book was a really fun read, ESPECIALLY because it was the first thing I ever read on my Kindle. It was basically like Stephen King welcoming me to the world of owning an e-reader. I wish my Kindle had an UR function, though.

I enjoyed it too. I kept thinking of a college professor of mine from years ago, and I found it humorous placing him in the main character's sitaution :smile2:

I still haven't read (or heard) this. I just downloaded the Amazon Kindle (in anticipation of MILE 81), though. So maybe it's time to rectify this situation...

I still have yet to either read or listen to Ur, either..

Just finished listening to it. Great story.

I was browsing in my library, when I turned around, and there was the audio book. I thought "Hey, that's the book that isn't in print unless you own a Kindle." Which I don't. So Yoink! I grabbed it, and listened to it in the next couple of days. If you're on the edge about whether or not to go through the hassle of downloading the Kindle app to your computer, or of finding the audio book, the story is a fun one.

Long days and pleasant nights.

I finally got around to reading this. I thought it was a very good story. And I was surprised to learn it's associated with THE DARK TOWER. Easily recommended.

I finished listening to the story last night.
Fun is not the right word...UR is mesmerizing.
What a cool idea, and very, very, very well written. Holter Graham also did a fantastic job reading it.
IMHO, this novella is actually better than all the stories in FDNS and one of Uncle Stevie`s great masterpieces!

I just finished listening to this, and I loved it. I thought it was a great short story, and of course I loved the connections to the Dark Tower.

I can tell you that Holter Graham has done at least one other SK book, because I just finished listening to it right before this one. It kept tripping me up while I listened to UR, because Graham used a VERY similar voice for Robbie and Arnie Cunningham in Christine. I kept expecting Robbie to start freaking out because of that... :smile2:

I read it on my Kindle, but now I think I might listen to it as well. Thank you!

It was a great, fun and entertaining short. I think it's great how King always updates and sets the pace with both the narrative and his real world initiative.

I listened to this story over the weekend, what a great story! I did enjoy it very much. Low men in yellow coats! What a surprise! This is why I won't get an ereader anytime soon. :D

ha!ha!..thanks Neesy :D Actually, I want the one that's from the story, with all kinds of stories from the well known authors, such as Poe, and I want to be able to download stories without charging my real credit card. :D

ha!ha!!! :D I'm teasin'! Actually, lately I've been finding myself flirting with the idea of having a relationship with an ereader. I find the idea of having all those stories available at my fingertips exciting...oh, for shame! :D

Just read this myself and as others have commented it was cool how it ties in to the Dark Tower.
