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.

I did not particularly like the book. The scale of the book was so large, that it becomes to easy to find fault with it. The characters were not well-developed, simpletons. I prefer the books Stephen King writes now than his older books, but not this one.

LOVED this book. I am in awe of Stephen King's characters. They travel alternate dimensions and still become truer to themselves. I am happy to see that his son is exploring strange realities too.

As I read this book I feel the unmistakable urge to stay awake...
