In a typical King plot a mundane object is associated with improbable effects, in this case, multiple universes. Holter Graham plays it straight, dropping flat American accents over King's utilitarian prose, with just enough differentiation between characters to avoid confusion. In the brief span available, Graham gets the most mileage out of a teenaged character whose changing voice is note-perfect. Overall, his narration is full of life as it enhances numerous first-person digressions. There’s a chance for Graham to work an accent early on when he adopts a Southern twang for a fictitious book description, but, sadly, the opportunity only comes once. Written exclusively for Amazon’s Kindle e-reader, UR is an extended infomercial for the device, but it balances its promotion with a short running time.
