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.

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.

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!!!
