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, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare. One woman, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied
Or is she a demon who must be slain
Abandoned, left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions, some wanting to kill Eve, some to save her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their own vengeance on new enemies. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world. Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels particularly urgent and relevant today.

    Good read . I was expecting a bit more though. Definitely a unique ideal, but the ending was rushed I felt.

    I genuinely loved this book, and would recommend it to anyone looking for something thoughtful, different, contemporary and well-paced to read. I see alot of people attributing this book to Stephen King but the writing style wasn’t Stephen King’s at all. It was much more sarcastic and quippy in style, and I mean that in a good way. It seems obvious to me that Owen wrote this book and his father merely assisted. In any case, it is one of the best books I’ve ever read, and that is not hyperbole. It is gripping from beginning to end, a fascinating story with wonderful and we’ll fleshed-out characters. The ending was a very refreshing change of pace from what one would expect after reaching the three quarter mark. That’s another reason that I’m positive it is not a Stephen King work, because the ending is utterly bittersweet and perfect, and in no way taints all that preceded it, making you realize that you wasted your time reading it.
