by Stephen King

This relatively short audiobook is certainly a "nod" to the Kindle e-reader, written exclusively as a Kindle book which was later released as an audiobook. Wes Smith, a college professor, tries to veer away from traditional books and buys a Kindle. However, after an error in his order, he receives a pink Kindle (traditionally only available in white). The pink Kindle contains a particular "UR" function that reveals tragic alternate universes. Wes Smith must use the device to prevent a future murder in his own universe-- which leads to potentially horrifying consequences. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try other Stephen King works, such as: It, N, 11/22/63, or Mile 81.] -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
