UR by Stephen King

URUR by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've had this book on my Kindle for ages. So long, that I actually bought it when I was still using the Kindle keyboard. LOL.

I really don't know why I haven't read it yet, but I think it was because UR kept getting pushed down the line with my MANY book purchases.

Anyway, last night I was in the mood for something shorter and as soon as I started, I was instantly hooked.

Wesley Smith is an English instructor at a not-so great college. He loves books, and recently broke up with his girlfriend because he was always caught up in a book when she needed him most.

When he buys a Kindle to spite her, he secretly hopes it also impresses her. But this Kindle isn't like the others. It's pink, for starters! And when he accesses the UR FUNCTIONS he finds himself in a bizarre situation. Stumbles on books he didn't know existed, as well as other more nightmarish things that could send him over the edge...

Wow. I loved this!

It's such a trippy, multi-dimensional story that takes an ordinary man to heights he never imagined. It also gives him some excitement, a purpose. And brings him closer to one of his students and a colleague.

The more Wesley delves into what this bright Kindle has to offer, the deeper he gets involved. Until he discovers something that will affect him personally, and could cause a ripple effect.

I love weird stories, and this one would certainly be an awesome fit for The Twilight Zone and/or The Outer Limits.

The King has done it again.
