About this deal

Surprise of surprises, I actually loved the ending to this little story. While there are elements of the concept that are undeniably scary, there was a level of happiness to the climax that left me feeling content. I just really wish I could find this magical Kindle. I think I could stay away from looking into the happenings of the other realities if I could just read new works from favorite authors. Isn’t that a literary daydream held by countless bookworms? Reading The Book of Lost Tales by Tolkien, the first book of the twelve in the histories of middle earth. In Tolkien's earliest conception, he creates a magic sun, called "Ur."

I attempted to read his story a few years ago and gave up in disgust before I was even halfway through. It didn’t make much sense and I was bored witless. I'm not quite sure what there is to say here. While King is one of my favorite authors, I'm not an apologist. Among some of the best books I've ever read are some real clunkers. While I was listening to this one, I said to a friend on Google Chat, "You know... it's crazy how much Stephen King affects me. He also dreamed. No images; only words. Titles! Endless lines of titles, many of them of undiscovered masterpieces. As many titles as there were stars in the sky.” A crazy certainty had arisen in his mind: a hand - or perhaps a claw - was going to swim up from the grayness of the Kindle's screen, grab him by the throat, and yank him in.”Smith's Kindle has a peculiar function called UR that can search multiple timelines for data. Interestingly enough, each time he uses this function, an enormous dark tower flashes across the screen as it loads data. Smith finds four books Ernest Hemingway wrote in an alternate universe where he lived for three more years. Further searches reveal written works by Edgar Allan Poe and William Shakespeare from other timelines. Wesley also discovers yet another function concerning newspapers that were published in an alternate universe.

I repent! I will make my upmost effort in reading my way through The Dark Tower series, one book a month minimum. Smith tells a friend and a student about the Kindle. The three men try to connect to an issue of The New York Times from an alternate reality, but find to their horror that no papers are published on the day they requested. They learn that in this alternate reality, the world ended when the Cuban Missile Crisis escalated into World War III in November 1962.I don't mean to harp on like this, but it always amazes me how much I fall in love with King's characters -- especially after I've read other books where the characters are flat, lifeless things that just move from scene to scene doing whatever the storyline requires without a personality or free will of their own. Alright... harping to stop..... Now. I'm listening to this audio book and I have a knot in my stomach out of nervousness." This about sums up what I love about Stephen King. Even in his shortest stories, he is able to take me out of my world and transplant me into the one he's created. He's able to make me not only know his characters, but care about them and root for them and worry for their well-being. The Kindle shilling and advertisements are shameless, which is all the more frustrating as one can only read the damn thing on a Kindle - why give us the infomercial at the same time? The delivery mechanism to my mind is secondary for me as a writer. [...] But I did this once before with a story called Riding the Bullet and I never had so many guys in suits come up to me and ask me questions. But they didn't want to know about the story, they didn't want to know about the process, they wanted to know about the delivery system, but to me that's secondary. [...] I think people will be more interested in the business aspect of [ Ur] than they will in the story. I would never have agreed to it if I didn't think it was a pretty good story. [4] All things serve the Tower,” the man-thing in the yellow duster said, and touched the hideous button on its coat with a kind of reverence. Both wore buttons bearing a red eye.
