Publisher's Summary

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.

meh

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

Surprisingly BAD

I have enjoyed most of SK's newer work. He is typically a masterful storyteller and develops characters that you like or sympathise with. This book was something different. It was a struggle to listen to it from the beginning. The narration was great, the premise is great- the characters were awful. I struggled to make it half way through the book before I gave up. No GOOD characters. A few good villains. Maybe he went too hard with his political statement- whatever the case it was NOT an enjoyable book.
