My wife and I just finished UR , It was very cool.

UR is almost a dark tower book , like the 'Little sisters' or
Everything's Eventual ,and Insomnia , its DT related. Kind'da

I want my own UR-search-bar ! and I want my own DARIA unit
(Thats from : Wind-Keyhole)
UR is not a word. It stands for something : BLANK Realities
Maybe : Ultimate Realities or Unlimited Realities , does anyone know ??

It is also clear to me that: King is a big Girls basket ball fan!
College girls-basketball. He must be a fan . I believe it is his Other
fav sport after (Boston)baseball . Maybe his daughter played in college
or something.

Also:: I want to see TGWLTG made into a movie-even a
"MADE FOR TV" movie. It would be insanely cheap to produce
and very cool. Tom Gordon could be in it. It seems this Title
is an anomaly in the King cannon. Many see it as a
strange off-shoot or something .

Anyway , some facts about UR:serious spoilers .

When the drunk lady Candy , left her last bar she had almost 2 hours
before she hit the bus full of young college girls. She did something in between the
time she gave the finger to the bar tender and the moment she hit the bus.
We never learn what it was . The reporter said she
: 'took a nap' during this time...or something.

I believe she "would have" done something IMPORTANT during that time,
but she never got that chance , because she had 5 flat tires. I believe
the low-men were far more upset about what ever
was 'supposed to happen' THEN. The fact that the bus load of girls
didnt die...was LESS important then whatever went on during Candy's
2 hours of unknown time.

This could be the premise of UR-2 . It could be called ::

UR: Advanced search options !

My recollection is that he got interested in women's college basketball when Cindy Blodgett was playing for UMaine and he and Tabitha went to a lot of the games. She had been on the high school basketball team that Tabitha followed for research when she was writing One on One. I don't know if he still follows women's basketball, though.

I havnt seen this booklet but I am almost certain there is
a picture in it with Ms. Blodgett , on the court , face all bloody...
with The caption "I play like a girl".

Really , everyone should read UR, if you get the chance
and I will be checking out Tabby's booklet also,
