Description

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.

one of my bottom 5 King novels

The performance was amazing, loved the narrator. The story starts out strong, however, is plagued with too many characters to keep up with, a confusing and boring middle and lackluster ending. It's worth listening to, but only if you can get it for free.

Too many analogies/similes, too many segways

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Too many analogies/similes, too many segways. I lost focus several times due to journeys down paths that should not have been explored.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sleeping Beauties?

N/A

Which scene was your favorite?

N/A

Was Sleeping Beauties worth the listening time?

No. Easily could have been 1/3rd the size.

Any additional comments?

I’m a huge fan of Stephen King, so – to me – this book is a letdown. The story is solid, but too drawn out. Too many analogies/similes, too many segways. I lost focus several times due to journeys down paths that should not have been explored.I’ll be hard-pressed to buy another Owen King/Stephen King combination.

Man bashing for 25 hours...

Let me preface this review by saying that I believe in equality for all sexes, races, nationalities, and sexual orientations. But this book was ridiculously over the top when it comes to man bashing. Every plot and twist revolves around how poorly men treat women. Let’s just say that if Stephen King’s name wasn’t on this book, I doubt it would have been so popular on its own merits. If this is a sign of Owen King’s future writing, I’ll definitely be passing.

Boring

My wife and I are Stephen King fans but this one fell flat. It was overtly political and pandering in a very clumsy way. Jabs were taken at social issues and political figures with all the subtlety of rock in your shoe. This book was hard to get excited about and the lack of a discernable climax didn't help matters. The narrator had such a bad fake southern accent that it was distracting.

unbelievably bad.

Made it a little more than half way. One of the dumbest books I've ever read. The performer made it significantly worse than it needed to be.

Militant feminist dribble...AWFUL!

My favorite author and son, what a disappointment. The performance was quite acceptable but the content written, of course, by 2 males , is at very least hypocritical and certainly self serving and arrogant.

Slow and boring. Couldn’t even finish it.

The title says it all. The first Stephen King book I’ve read that I hated.

can't stand it.

I can not stand the emotionless weird talking of the reader Marin Ireland. book might even be alright if I could get past this horrible reading. How this reading got published idk. Book goes too in depth with people of no importance, just takes up time.

Just pathetic!!

I love almost all Stephen king novels, but I want my money back on this one. No plot, no purpose, the worst character development and an ending nothing short of lazy. The narrator was ok, but could have done a better job distinguishing the characters

für King Fans ok, ansonsten na ja...

Die Idee der Story ist nicht schlecht, King schreibt ohnehin immer sehr solide und gut, jeder Fan hört sich diese Story sowieso an. Für alle anderen Hörer nicht unbedingt ein Muss, dieses Buch geht nicht als eines seiner Meisterwerke in die Geschichte ein...

Politkorrekter Erziehungsroman statt Thriller!

Was würden Sie an der Handlung ändern, um das Hörbuch für Sie unterhaltsamer zu machen?

Die Handlung ist eigentlich nicht uninteressant, der Spaß wurde mir jedoch kräftig dadurch verdorben, daß King diesmal mit Penetranz seine politischen Überzeugungen im Buch meinte unterbringen und dem Zeitgeist huldigen zu müssen:
Männer sind meist Täter und überwiegend Charakterschweine; Frauen die Guten und Opfer. Er schafft es sogar seine Meinung zu Trump unterzubringen, den er für ein A..loch hält.
Schade! Ohne diese Volkserziehungsbemühungen hätte das ein hörenswertes Buch sein können!
Schuster bleib bei deinen Leisten!
