May have to quit this one.

I have finished every audio book I've ever started. This one though.... I am done. Story bounces too much and the narrator is getting on my nerves. I am several hours in, but I feel like I've wasted enough time on this one.

Horrible

The worst Stephen King book I have ever heard or read!! I’m a big fan and love his writing. That being said, I think this is by far worst thing He’s ever done. It doesn’t have the story line to support all the political rants. I can look over that if the stories are good enough, but this isn’t that!!!

Sleeping reader

I have read or listened to just about every Stephen King book and unfortunately this one has to go at the bottom of the favorites list.

I found it dragged on way too long in most places and while the premise of the story had promise if felt it got lost down side roads and distractions along the way.

Rather than my usual “don’t want to turn it off” I found myself thinking “I have to get through this and hope it gets better”. It didn’t.

This Stephen King Fan is Disappointed

What would have made Sleeping Beauties better?

More focus on character development. There were too many stereotypical characters that bored me. Also, twenty-five hours, really - it could have been told in half the time. And the wolf thing - never was explained or maybe it was because I stopped listening after 23 hours. I could sit in the dentist chair another minute.

What aspect of Marin Ireland’s performance would you have changed?

Marin Ireland's performance was good.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sleeping Beauties?

I would have cut the main characters in half and really focused on a few - Lila, Janette and Evie.

Any additional comments?

I'd be willing to read another collaboration between father and son.

Booooring

I liked the narrator's voice but hated the story. The concept is interesting but what could be a really gripping premise droned on and on and on and on winding up as lame as the characters in it. I never felt suspense. I waited so long for a climax that never came. I was left wondering what the point of the book was anyway.

Worst book ever.

I'm not sure if this is the influence of his son or not, but I could not even finish this book. It was a constant man bash from start to finish. There was almost no character development, and the story itself completely lacked content. Save your money, do not get this book.
