Publisher's Summary

Featuring a conversation with the authors!
In a spectacular father/son collaboration like no other, 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.

Marin Ireland does a wonderful reading

I own the book and like to listen to the audio in between, sometimes with.
Marin's reading on this is excellent.
Completely engrossing experience.
The story is a masterpiece. Would you expect any less?
Hopefully this opens up more doors to the talent that is Owen King.
Do yourself a favour and go buy this epic tale.

Never thought I’d say this about a Stephen King...

I’m a fan but quite frankly I was bored...I really didn’t care about any of the characters or what happened to them and I found it patronizing and slow. I didn’t actually get close to finishing the book. I don’t usually criticize anything publically, but I’m surprised this one got published.

Very dissatisfied with this book.

Was quite overdrawn and boring with too many menial characters. Made it a book that was dull and forgettable. Could have been ~15,000 words shorter.
