Description

Featuring a conversation with the authors!

In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: What might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: They become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place....

The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?

Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women's prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father/son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King.

Oh Dear!

1) Number of words for your money; excellent value.

2) Political correctness; excellent, men bad women good.

3) Stereotypes; more than you can shake a stick at.

4) Scary content, nil

i vote to stay

after seeing so many reviews and comments of people not liking this one, I was a bit hesitant. I would like to (someday) see the reviews, good and bad, broke down by sex. that would be interesting!
I, however, liked this one. the story moved along at a steady pace. I bought into the characters. I bought into all of it expect one part at the end. the voting bit.

Must Read

I believe everyone should read this book. It is well written & makes you think about the choices we make.

Unbelievable - a boring Stephen King book!

Didn't think it could happen - I can't bring myself to spend any more time listening to this un-engaging book. I have never been able to put down a SK book before. Simply put, the narrator is good, the book, after a promising start, is simply boring.

This story is a snooze

I am a big reader of King novels and usually find very satisfying reads. However. I found this story to be uninspired and flat. I struggled to finish it and thought the narrator did well with the material, but it just didn't grab me the way most of his work does. Not sure if it was the collaboration that did it or just a boring story but I will still look forward to the next book.

I loved it.

excellent, every character is very relatable.
no one person is perfect, everyone has a history that shapes them, and you really see that in almost every character, big or small.

Great Narration

The narration of this book is awesome. One of the best I’ve ever heard. Love the story as well.

What Happened?

My entire life I’ve been a Stephen King fan. I started reading his stuff when I was far too young for it. It terrified me but I could not get enough. Not so much for the horror, which was good, but for the writing itself.

I am about halfway through this book and I keep finding myself forgetting about it. And as much as I hate to say it, I am completely bored. I don’t really care if those women ever wake up.

Very sad to me that this book has his name on it. Either he’s so far past prime that he’s lost it, or he didn’t have much to do with the actual writing of this.

A sad surprise

I’m a HUGE fan of Stephen King. I am not a fan of this collaborative novel, “Sleeping Beauties.”
It’s simply boring, lacking any “gotcha” at any point. Fortunately, this book is the exception, and not the King norm.

Far left politics....be warned.

I almost turned it off a few times out of shear frustration with the unending bashing of men as a whole. These two men must live in a frightening, self-hating political reality.

The story was, of course, incredibly well written and fast paced. The reading was pure genius.

Maybe next time they can hate on everything that's made their success achievable in a political non-fiction book... so I can save my money.
