Описание

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.

    The two Kings captured one of the oldest stories time has to offer - the battle in nature of male versus female and the imagining of what decisions we make under the most extreme of duress. As far as 'end of civilization tales' it holds up fairly well.

    I listened to the audio version with a lot of ‘life’ interruptions. So there was much I missed with the fragmented natured of my attention. I may have enjoyed it more had I devoted more continuity of time.

    I'm a big King fan, but this left me a little cold. The first part is more interesting than the last.

    A truly compelling story awaits the reader/listener! The characters are relatable, and the narrator brought them all to life. Don't be daunted by the length, it's worth it!

    Fantastic book with a really interesting and unique topic. There were many characters that were very likeable and a rich world(s) surrounding them. As a woman, I feel that this book is important and appreciate the view that it offered. Also, as an Appalachian, I love that it was set here. It's just a detail I crave to see in more books for some reason. I wouldn't mind seeing more combined tales from these two.

    Great story. Great pacing. My favorite of Kings recent books. Owen helps his dad out of some tropes that he falls into.

    Excellent voice artist! She makes you feel as if you are actually watching a movie rather than listening to a book.

    The storyline is relatable to the mass population. There is never a dull moment.

    bad, not good, crappy writing, Stephen King has fallen off
  • (3/5)
    I like Steven king. But it is so hard for me to read or listen To his stories, especially listen. I like a good story without unnecessary ugliness and profanity. Yes, some of his characters are unlike able people who speak in offensive and ugly language, but I still would rather not hear repeated profanity or descriptions by angry characters of a scatalogical nature. Characterizations of undesirable traits can be made without gagging the reader. Let anger be expressed without disgusting language and descriptions. Really turns me off. Good stories are great but ruined by such trashy talk. And men characters sounding just like the Southern drawl of the whiny complaining women really got repetitive and tiring. Don’t go for stereotypes. So many characters were interchangeable. I want to read him but he always resorts to junior high trashy talking unlikeable characters. Who wants to spend hours listening to such negative, whiny people. Try to have your novels filled with more noble, moral and likeable people and, please, have 2narrators for the 2 genders and drop the irritating whiny accents. A little pepper (accents) is enough seasoning, not a whole can. Please, give us an escape from the real world. We are exposed too much to negative, angry, obnoxious, selfish, manipulating , untrustworthy individuals. Give us a breath of fresh air. Let’s have more characters who take the more difficult but right path, even if it is inconvenient, uncomfortable or even dangerous. Characters who won’t always take the self-serving, easy path. Let’s have some human, flawed characters who are still heroes. Trustworthy, honorable, humorous individuals who don’t have treacherous hidden self-serving agendas.
