Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King & Owen King Book Summary

In this spectacular New York Times bestselling father/son collaboration that “barrels along like a freight train” (Publishers Weekly), 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 wanted 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 woman’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels particularly urgent and relevant today.

Familiar with a slightly softer edge. This tale has all of the tried and true hallmarks that we know and love from Mr. King; fabulous character development, multifaceted storylines that lazily twine together, and those handful of characters you love and hate. However, it felt as if a few of those vicious, deadly sharp edges you find in other King tales were a little less sharp. This was a fascinating idea that walked the line between story and fable and while the ending was a little more idyllic and a little less believable, I’m glad it was so. The political, economic and environmental snare we seem to be sinking in can feel overwhelmingly hopeless at times and it was nice to have a “happily ever after”. Being a rock solid Stephen King fan since I was old enough to sneak “Cujo” and “It” off the restricted bookshelf in my parents bedroom, this was a great read with all the SK infrastructure I know and love and also a fabulous introduction to Owen. Nice to meet you, Owen. I’m sure we’ll meet again. And Steve, standing ovation as usual.

Not bad, not great. For the book to be close to $20, they definitely overcharged. The story had some good perspectives and interesting characters. The moths and the webs were gross!!

Leave the politics out please.. Have always enjoyed a good King novel and this could have been another. The story is good, just could have done without the politics and currently fashionable “man hating” and every man is bad even if he’s good undertones.

A Decent Premise. The basic idea of the story is interesting! But the execution is wanting. The book is unnecessarily long for the actual content. It could’ve been much shorter. The morals and all were a bit overdone.

Sleeping beauty. Worst book I have ever read. Just garbage

Overall an ok read. The book poses an interesting sub connection regarding Evie and the rest of the King universe and sub universe and that is that there is a correlation between her and another mystical being, John Coffey (like the drink but spelled different. Could they be part of the same mother? Coffey needed to die to save others. Evie needed to die to force others to be saved. I think that the characterization suffered a bit by having so many players and it was not clear as to why Evie killed the meth dealers in the way that she did other than the fact that maybe it was because they had set up shop near the tree and it was therefore offensive to her? In any case, I felt like we’d seen some variation of these characters before but like I said, an ok read. Not the best It was interesting to see

Great fantasy. More of a fable, or fantasy novel. Loved it.

Raw. What

Sleeping beauty. Not one of the best books I’ve read probably the worst with Stephen King’s name on it. Mostly read like And angry divorced woman wrote it. I don’t think the collaboration was a good idea but you never know unless you try I guess. It didn’t start out that bad but just dragged on way too long.

Stayed on my mind. Unknowingly timely.

Unreliable Authors. I am down with a good unreliable narrator but this is written by unreliable authors. It doesn’t seem like they understand exactly what story they are trying to tell or who represents what. The result is a book that comes off as sexist and racist while trying to cover a lot of things but only accomplishing any specific thing poorly.

Drawn into this story almost immediately. Another great read! The first few chapters, one could decipher a difference of writing styles. And then, both authors’ styles meshed into one. I plan to read some of Owen King’s books.

Interesting. After reading many of the reviews on this book I couldn’t help but put my two cents out there— this book was interesting. What made it interesting is as a avid King reader for the past 20 years — I could tell when he was writing and when Owen was writing. I found it interesting that King was so much more graphic and explicit than his son, Owen. There is this feeling from Kings male “constant readers” that this was a sexist work — man hating and political. Wake up, guys, King has always had an affinity for abusive male leads with over indulging personality’s. He’s not shy about pointing out the deficiencies of his own gender. This worm is no different, it was just written in a different time— politically and socially. Not my favorite King, but definitely not 1 star!

Worst King title in the library.. I have read and enjoyed most of King’s books. I did something with this one I have never done: quit halfway through. I could not take any more preachy political man-hating. There is a reason Joe Hill has not depended on his father’s last name. His books are fantastic. I will not be reading any more with Owen King’s name on the cover.

So the Kings are political now?. Interesting story, typical King page-turner, but King just can’t resist the urge to insert politics into his story. Trump is awful, white cops are bad, and all men are angry. I miss the old King.

Second time around and still loving it!!. This is my second time reading this novel, and I enjoyed it just as much if not more. The premise is fascinating and the plot construction & pacing are pretty darn near perfect. Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this. I really enjoyed this book. I felt it was an interesting new story plot. I looked forward to reading it every night and didn’t want to put it down. I was sad when the story was over. I loved this collaboration and hope they do more

Must have!!. Let me start off, the fact that I don’t have this book on IOS, with me wanting this book physically as a hardcover copy shows how good this book is. Just reading the description and the first 2 pages already got me hooked on to the book. This book is a must have for book lovers and people who are just starting to love reading books..

Couldn’t get into it. I usually have trouble putting a King book down, but by the middle of this book I was speed reading just to see if it was getting better. I’ll still read the next one, though.

Very disappointed. One of the worst books I've ever read. Painfully drawn out right till the end.

Love. I’ve read everything he has ever written and I’m literally his Number One fan. I’d totally pull an Annie Wilkes on him if given the opportunity. This is gold <3

Sleeping Beauties. This topic is eerily timely with today’s social climate.....

Entertains. Slow at first but picked up and was worth reading. Liked it pretty well but wouldn’t read it again.

Good read. I enjoyed the book but the reason all the women were taken wasn’t really explained. Think the “witch” (forget her name) said it was an accident she caused but didn’t really explain it. Then she mentioned she was told to do it but doesn’t knw why. . 🤷🏾‍♀️

Not a beauty. I’ve read most of S.K.’s works and this is by far the worst VERY slow and uninteresting. Just a lame plot with excessive use of a thesaurus.

Tedious long read. I don’t remember when this book came out but I purchased it when it first did and it has taken a long time to finish. The story while interesting has a disjointed pace and didn’t keep me interested. The main characters are forgettable but the ending was ok . My only triumph with this book was I finished what I started.

Ugh. This book should have ended 400 pages ago. Such drivel is tiresome. It’s like they tried to recreate The Stand and failed miserably.

Reading An Oscar Winner. This book was amazing, sad, bright and beautiful. Every time I read, it felt like I was watching the movie of the year. Exciting and thought provoking, it’s a new favorite!

Worthless Drivel. What a waste of time and money. I’ve read and enjoyed every Stephen King book ever written, until now. Don’t know who’s responsible for the theme, but I won’t even finish reading it. Let’s see: men are worthless, demeaning, ugly, lazy, brutal, and have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Written by two men who are obviously so drowning in political correctness and the land of snowflakes they’ll probably never find their way back.

Masterpiece!!. Stephen and Owen King did an amazing job on this book. From start to finish I was hooked.

Sleeping Beauties. Liked it, bit slow in places.

Boring. Too many characters, too many pages. Had a hard time finishing due to lack of interest. I do not recommend.

too much yet too less. soo many characters and endless pages that lead to nothing

Stupid. Bad

Stephen King never disappoints!. I loved the fact I forgot all about the hero. What a great book from the man who has kept me enthralled , with tales of ordinary people in extraordinary situations, since 1977’s release of Carrie, in paperback. ( I recommend it to our library so I’d get to read it sooner)

Amazing detail. this story grabs ahold of you and doesn’t let go
