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.

Disappointing

I wanted to love this book, after all it's Stephen King! But... I felt like I could tell when he was writing and when his son Owen was writing. It just didn't have the pacing of a typical King book of the genre. It seemed to go off on too many tangents and subplot developments that didn't seem necessary to the story. I found myself getting bored and wishing something, anything, would happen to push the story on but it tended to get bogged down in so many places. I feel like I'm committing sacrilege because I do enjoy so many of Mr. King' s books.... Just not this one.

excellent story

I would love to see this in a social studies or women's literature class, it would be amazing to discuss he set dynamics with a group of people,

Very disappointing, the story dragged on and on..

The story was initially interesting, the characters became redundantand and took too long to enjoy. Way too many people to follow, and I lost track towards the end. The battle and bloodshed could have been ten chapters shorter. I felt my self just wanting it to end. Sorry, I'm a huge fan. This book was a waste of my time.

Feels like political propaganda

I am an avid King reader but this story feels less like entertainment and more like some thinly veiled political propaganda.

In this world the inmates of a women's prison are 'better' people than the average man. There are explicit insults about Trump and criticism of police as racist that just feel completely out of context. The is no great understanding or morale at the end. Just woman deciding they're willing to put up with men's bullshit out of pity.

King(s) need to stick to writing horror stories and avoid the politics.

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.

worst book I have ever listened to

My wife and I love Stephen King. We have enjoyed every single book of his EXCEPT THIS ONE!
My wife says this book is a sexist and political nightmare. I am not sure if we will EVER buy another King book again :(
The reader of this book was amazing though!!!

One of King's weakest

This one was down in "Under the Dome" territory. Very disappointing - tedious, condescending, full of stereotypes and offensively broad generalizations about men AND women. Quite a few political swipes that, although I expected them because I'm well aware of King's politics. Still, they were pretty clumsy at best.

There are quite a few aspects to the basic premise that really bother me...so much so that it really makes me wonder if they thought it through enough before putting pen to paper. It all just felt too half-baked...all for the purpose of making some heavy-handed moral argument about gender politics and war.

Terrible choice for narration

I’m a huge Stephen King fan and was very excited for this book with his son, but the story was weak. And whoever thought this poor woman should read this book with the redneck accents was way off!! Made it very hard to enjoy. That was not a story being told, but reading in agony!

Wake up

Oh my goodness if I had to hear the narrator any longer I might wish to be in a cocoon myself the book might be good but I did not enjoy the voices and maybe he did not have to have the talking animals . Don’t spend your money on this. He has better stuff.

meh

Nothing much happened. I'm used to having a very profound response to a King book, but this was quite mundane.

Not SK's best effort

Marin Ireland was a great narrator for this, and she was the primary reason I kept going as long as I did. The book is way too long and the gender stereotypes are UGH!!
