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.

The story was drawn out and very uneventful.

The story dragged on and seemed to have little content that contributed to the story. This novel felt like 75% filler 25% actual story.

I've Read and Listened to Every King Book

I've read and listened to every King book and I guess you could say he is my favorite author. I didn't finish this one. The story held my interest, but didn't rivet me and quite honestly, I forgot about it until now. It has an interesting and unique concept and I think it's worth the read if nothing else is floating your boat, but I'm pretty sure this is the only King novel I've never finished. I probably will one day, but today is not that day.
