Stars of the s, Then and Now. Stephen King TV Universe. Why the fuck should that be? I'm not supposed to like anybody because the book is packed full of villains, you say?
What about Frank? What about Evie? Super duh. What about Clint? Less of a duh. What about Lila? She's not obvious at all, is she?
Goddamn it, where's the heroes? A page goddamn book and there's not a single hero? How come, E.!? Because this book has a message.
And fuck me, it's a good one. Ladies, dig it. How does it feel to not have a choice? How does it feel to have your reproductive organs, your own personal vaginas and uteri and ovaries and wombs and in-utero babies, controlled by men in government?
How does it feel to be told what to wear so you don't get raped? Where to go so you don't get raped? Who to talk to so you don't get raped?
How does it feel to be treated as if you are constantly in need of protection? Focus on that last sentence. Of course I'm man-splaining here, but fuck it, I'm going all in.
This is what this book is about: Women stripped of choice finally given a choice. Do they deal with the swinging-dick version of this world, or start over?
Evie Black plans to give them that choice. But, in the end, even she tries to decide for them. Elaine tries to decide for them.
Frank does Clint does Yes, even Lila does. Everyone thinks they know what's best for the female gender, but not one of them stops to think about what each individual person needs.
And THAT is what makes this book smart. Doesn't make this novel a good read, but it's smart as fuck.
And that's all I have to say about that. In summation: A gargantuan story told in a bubble. Not a fan of the delivery or the writing or the characters, but I loved the message.
Awesome themes aside, I'd wait to find a thrift-store paperback version. Simply "okay". Final Judgment: The brains get in the way of the story.
Outtakes: I love how there's a review on here that simply says: This book better be about the women and not the men.
Or what, dude? Thanks for the laugh, broseph. Evie Black is so Andre Linoge. Even down to the choice she gives everyone at the end. King recycled the fuck outta that character.
Guess he thought it was fine, given how one was a script and the other only started as a script Took me pages to catch the subtext of this one, y'all.
I'm slipping in my old age. Still, I do wonder how many man-rage reviews there'll be. Reviews that are just of men bitching about how they'd survive just fine without women, as if that's the point of the book.
I know King doesn't read reviews, but Owen's an active Goodreads member. Wonder if he's reading the men's-rights-activist reviews and chuckling.
You're gonna get some hate on this one, E. You know King fans won't be happy with only two stars. You obviously missed the genius What the fuck is wrong with you?!?!?!?!?!?!!?????!
I might be a biased King fan, but I pride myself more on my honesty. Hope you guys liked the review, even if you don't like me or my opinion.
View all 22 comments. Sep 26, Perry rated it did not like it. Regrettably, "Sleeping Beauties," a writing collaboration with his younger son Owen that may seem touching in the paternal sense, fails to plunge the reader into the type of heart-thumping chills and page-flipping thrills that casual King fans crave.
Rather, the novel proves itself a tiresome, often grandiose, fantasy-soapbox that is sure to please only the most hardcore King fans.
The novel opens in the small Appalachian town of Dooling, West Virginia, when a nubile nude woman, with green pubic hair and moths fluttering from her mouth, strolls out from behind a mammoth tree in a large clearing to bludgeon a local meth dealer who abuses his girlfriend.
She then patiently awaits arrest. This supernatural goddess named Eve or Evie Black--we soon see--mocks all men, reads minds, controls a pack of prison rats and commands an army of moths.
Sheriff Lila Norcross transports her to the women's prison outside of town where Dr. Clint Norcross, the Sheriff's husband, is the prison psychiatrist.
The same day, a worldwide plague known as the "Aurora flu" strikes every woman who enters a state of sleep, after which tendrils grow from her body and form a cocoon from which she does not awake.
If anyone--even a family member--tries to break open the cocoon and wake the woman, she is transformed into a crazed, bloodthirsty killer. One yokel yucks that the plague is "the ultimate PMS.
We get sound bites of end times from around the globe: riots in D. Nearly half the book is consumed by a tedious introduction to seventy characters, including half of Dooling and most of the female prisoners.
If you can keep up, you may still get frustrated by the lengthy and frequent slow-motion diversions into the connubial blemishes of Lila and Clint Norcross, which seem feeble when considering that humankind stands on the brink of extinction.
Dooling's female correctional facility is ground zero for the Aurora flu, housing the sole female immune from the plague, Evie Black. The question at the novel's center is how the men of this small Appalachian town will react to the plague.
Will they act out backwards male stereotypes, form rabid packs and go after Evie? As Evie explains to Dr. Norcross, she will not defend herself and only if she survives a number of days will the women be set free; if not, all women will perish.
Thus begins the battle of men for the existence of our species: the men--almost entirely of cardboard stock--who want to kill Evie Black versus the men who want to protect her, the latter led by Dr.
Norcross, who the Kings inform us is "the one who stands for all mankind. Our Place is just past the clearing from which Evie arrived and the "Mother Tree," the Kings' version of the tree of knowledge and the portal to Evie's Eden-like garden populated by a fox and a tiger that talk, a peacock, and a giant snake that slithers up and down the tree.
Or had the Tree come from Evie? She's had trouble with him before. Norcross and a few prison guards--generally drinking, righteous, gun-toting, savage pigs.
The absence of the reader's investment in a legion of caricatures represents a fundamental flaw in building a shred of suspense.
That is to say, by the time the battle for Eve ensues--think, "Lord of the Flies" at a women's prison--it is nearly impossible to know who does what, when, to whom, who was killed and who survived, and miraculous if one even cares.
Lovers of the Stephen King brand of graphic gore may find parts to relish, such as how "shreds of skin flapped like streamers" from a bulldozer that had just flattened a man, or how a man's jaw being cleaved open by a woman sounded like "a drumstick being torn off a Thanksgiving turkey.
Instead, this doorstopper of a novel stands primarily as a political soapbox the Kings thrust upon readers via "original sin" Eve, brought back by some secret force that detests men.
Whether or not a reader is in sync with some of the Kings' political persuasions is beside the point. Most readers, it seems, probably do not care to read a novel billed as a blockbuster supernatural thriller that can be more fittingly described as an environmentalist, gun-controlling, feminist, Trump-loathing fantasy with a take on everything from gender politics to racial violence, and that hits heavily on a range of social dilemmas such as suicide, marital infidelity, teen sex, alcoholism, drug addiction in impoverished areas, domestic violence and mental illnesses.

Not sure yet! In a world where women have fallen asleep in cocoons, the men are left to figure things out.
This book contained a lot of characters. A LOT. I did appreciate most of the feminist views included although it sometimes bordered on the "m'lady hat tipping" side.
This book also featured one of my new most hated character of all time! I did like it but it's not my favorite from SK.

But please, please don't waste your time. Not unless you've read every other word by SK. It's by far his worst effort to date.
It took me about 4 months to read the first half. I realized then that if I was ever going to finish it I'd have to do the audiobook.
That helped a lot. My one positive comment is that Sleeping Beaut Stephen King is a god, but this book is a slog. My one positive comment is that Sleeping Beauties is more interesting than rush hour traffic.
The narrator did a great job adding vocal personality to otherwise lifeless characters. So why is it such a disaster? Many reasons, but mostly because all of the characters are the same.
Picture the stereotypical image of an Appalachian resident and then imagine 30 clones of that stereotype. There's your entire cast. Also, you would expect some type of brilliant social commentary with a premise like this, but no.
No relevance to our world, past or present. I actually appreciated that there isn't a lot of political blah-blah-blah, but come on, there is nothing better than a thesis that men are inherently violent.
All that said, there were brief and fleeting moments of fine storytelling. In those moments I imagined Daddy King working overtime to breathe life into an arc that was clearly going downhill fast.
Nevertheless, I'm sure this was the experience of a lifetime for Owen. I would give many body parts to collaborate with the King on a novel, even if it turned out to be trash.
Maybe we will eventually look back on Sleeping Beauties as a historical document, the teething ring that lead to many great things from Owen.
We shall see. Until then, let the historians deal with this dusty tome and read something else. View all 10 comments. Disruption or tearing upon of this cocoon will cause the female inside to act in a homicidal manner.

One woman, however, seems to be the key to unravelling exactly what is going on I'm going to keep my review as spoiler-free as possible, as I know so many people are still reading it.
So I'll just present some overall thoughts and opinions. Okay, so, I enjoyed this book, but it's not without its faults.
Part 1 was brilliant, this idea presented by the Kings is so unique and interesting and to see how it all unfolds and the effect it has on the world, and in particular, in Dooling, is really exciting.
Part 2, however It reminded me of my experience with The Stand where I just thought, "Oh get on with it!!! Speaking of characters, there is a LOT in this book, but surprisingly I was able to keep up with who everyone was and how they were connected to each other etc.
Sometimes I did have that split second of "Wait So yeah, there isn't too many in terms of keeping up with the characters, but in my opinion, there were a few characters who I could just have done without.
King is the King of character development and creating memorable characters that you just never forget - however, I think quite a lot of the ones in here are forgettable for me, apart from Evie and Lila.
The rest, meh. In terms of the collaboration between father and son, it was seamless to me, it didn't feel like it was splintered and all over the place as the voice switches from Owen to Stephen and back again.
Of course, some parts felt distinctly Stephen, and others felt non-Stephen I haven't read any of Owen's work beyond this so I can't comment on his writing style.
The first half of the book felt like a Stephen King idea to me and a current-day King read, however the second half just lacked that punch that King usually delivers.
I felt interested, sure, but I wasn't really expressing any emotions. I did enjoy it overall, don't get me wrong, it's a great idea, a great premise, but the second half let me down and so I'd give this book 4 stars out of 5.
Which perhaps seems high after all my complaining, but that first half of the book was SO good and I still found it hard to put the book down even when I got to the second half!
Overall, a decent book! View all 6 comments. I'm so glad that I have this book a chance. I had read so many meh reviews, that I just kept putting it off.
I should know better than that! I loved this book! I don't think I've been this satisfied with a King book in many years.
Yes, I liked The Outsider, and Kings recent trilogy, but they just weren't quite weird enough for me. Sleeping Beauties felt like a King book of old.
I don't know or care who did the majority of the writing here. Father or son? Maybe they should team up more often, and add Joe.
Put out a page doorstopper full of murder, mayhem and supernatural strangeness! View all 15 comments. Mar 08, Matt rated it really liked it Shelves: audiobook.
In the town of Dooling, the discovery of two meth cooks are found murdered seems to be a day like any other, though a stranger may be behind this bloody mess.
Normalcy ends in this community when women around the Having long been a fan of Stephen King, I was curious to tackle this novel, which pairs the King of Horror with his Prince of Thrills?
Normalcy ends in this community when women around the world are going to sleep and not waking up. While in these comatose states, they are discovered with an odd growth on their faces, spindly white thread that soon becomes a cocoon that surrounds their bodies.
This odd occurrence is tied to sleep—but only of women—and is soon labelled Aurora Sickness. As the folks of Dooling do all they can to understand this phenom, the women are taking matters into their own hands to stay awake.
Chaos reigns as caffeine and other stimulants—both legal and illegal—are sought by anyone possessing the XX chromosome, in an effort to remain awake.
Tucked away in the prison is that aforementioned stranger, Eve Black, who appears to be immune to the cocooning and enjoys restful sleep without consequence.
Does Eve have something to share with those left awake in Dooling that might bring an end to the madness? What happens to those who remain asleep in their cocoons?
These answers and more await the reader as they flit through this massive novel—like moths on a summer night—and are enveloped in a story that has all the markings of a King classic.
I will be the first to admit that reading Stephen King is not for everyone, though his novels as not as horror-based as they might once have been.
Their uniqueness lies not only in the number of pages used to transmit a story, but also the numerous tangents taken to get from A to B.
While that might annoy me with some authors, I find solace in the detail provided on the journey when King is at the helm. As King is wont to do, he supersaturates the story with scores of characters, all of whom play their own part in the larger narrative.
While this may annoy some readers, I find it—bafflingly—exciting as I keep track of all the mini-stories that develop throughout.
That being said, a few characters rise to the forefront in this piece and help bridge the story together.
Lila Norcross proves to be a pivotal character, both in her role as sheriff and a level-headed player in town when chaos begins to rear its head.
Lila has much going on and her character must face many struggles throughout the story, but she never backs down from what stands before her.
Eve Black remains that character that King uses in most of his novels, the unknown individuals who brings chaos to the forefront while remaining calm and even endearing.
No one knows anything of Eve, though her character becomes significant as the story progresses. Turning to the story at hand, it is both complex and simplistic, allowing the reader to pull something from it that might appeal to them.
There are many wonderful plots to follow within the story, which develop throughout the detailed chapters. The reader will likely have to use the character list at the beginning of the piece to keep everyone clear, though the detail offered allows a quick refresher for the attentive reader.
The writing style is clearly elder King, with its meandering way and a narrative peppered with commentaries.
It is for the reader to sift through it all and find the gems that will help them better appreciate the story. Chapters are broken up into numbered breaks, assisting with the literary digestion process, which allows the reader to better appreciate the magnitude of the story before them.
I enjoy this style of writing, though am not entirely clear what flavour the younger King added to the story, as I am ignorant to any of his past published works.
That being said, the collaborative King experience was one I thoroughly enjoyed. Kudos, Messrs. King, for this excellent collaborative effort.

I can relate because I also fly into a homicidal fury if awoken from a nap. The small Appalachian town of Dooling is like everywhere else with the women struggling not to fall asleep, but as days pass the number of those awake begin to dwindle.
Everything begins to fall apart as some men try to watch over the sleeping women they care for to protect them from jerkfaces who would do them harm.
Meanwhile, the sleeping ladies find themselves someplace familiar but very different. The main idea here is pretty clever as hybrid of a fairy tale story and the beginning an apocalyptic end-of-society-as-we-know-it novel.
Maybe the writing itself is a factor. Even his books co-written with Peter Straub felt more King-ish to me which seems odd.
I listened to the audio version of this which included an interview with both authors at the end, and they talked about how instead of trading off chapters or sections that they would leave holes in the middle of what they wrote for the other to fill in a deliberate attempt to keep a reader from figuring out exactly who wrote what.
Another interesting bit in that interview is that this started out as a potential TV series that they wrote some scripts for, and I think that shows through in some of the structure.
It just reads like a TV show at times is the best way I can explain it. I admit that there were a few points where I found the male bashing a bit much, but not out of any nutjob MRA style faux indignation about double standards.
But not perfect. Certainly its miles better than The Fireman , another novel written by a King offspring in which a strange disease puts society in peril.

And how would that reaction differ if the population was divided by gender, and all of the sleepers were females? How would men handle a world without women?
I was super exc You can now find this review and more at Novel Notions. I was super excited when it came in, though I have to admit I was surprised by the size.
Yes, King has written some huge books, but I guess that somewhere in the back of my mind I expected a co-authored book to a bit shorter.
However, the length was perfect for the story; the pace never felt like it was dragging. Back to the sleepers.
And if someone decided to remove a woman from their cocoon, there was hell to pay. Awakened women were angry women, and they fought dirty, biting off noses and beating or stabbing their awakener with whatever happened to be handy, until their faces were once more wrapped in silken fibers and they drifted back into their supernatural slumber.
These sleeping beauties left the men of the world completely flabbergasted and the women still clinging to consciousness terrified of long blinks.
The aftermath of Aurora, as the sleeping sickness has been named, is where the story really takes off. There were so many things I loved about this book.
The gender questions raised by Aurora were fascinating. Are men more violent without women around to calm them? What would a world without women, or a world without men for that matter, look like for the gender left behind?
And some of those stereotypes do still hold a grain of truth when discussing a gender as a whole. For instance, far less violent crimes are perpetrated by women than are perpetrated by men.
Does it mean that all men are violent? Of course not! But differences between genders as a whole do exist, and they bear discussing so that we can figure out the roots of said differences.
And seeing societies redefined when they hold only one gender was fascinating. There was also a bit of examination of race and sexuality as they divide our societies, and I felt that these were tastefully.
No society is ever going to be without people who fight against the march of progress. One of my favorite things about King novels is his ability to take a conflict of cosmic importance and show that conflict in a small town setting, allowing the outcome of the smaller-scale battle to dictate the fate of the world at large.
Evie appeared in Dooling right as Aurora was making its first appearances in the town and prison, and a lot of people think that she has something to do with the sleeping sickness.
They just might be right. And I really loved her. King always makes the characters in his small towns feel so real, resulting in a town that is completely believable.
And that depth and variance of characterization was definitely present in Sleeping Beauties. I cared so much about the characters, and they were all incredibly well-developed and different from one another.
The prose was different. Not that I have any problems with King's regular prose, mind you; I obviously enjoy it or I wouldn't be consuming so much of his work!
However, the writing was seamless; I could never tell who wrote what, although I could feel the influence of both writers. For me, that was a bonus, because The Fireman was one of my favorite books published in It was fabulous.

Until a few years ago okay I think it was possibly 20 years ago when I was a teenager hahaha , he was by far my favourite author. My second favourite author was Clive Barker.
I used to read so many horror books and I did not mind at all the fact that King was considered an entertainer, not really a quality author.
If you wanted to read Not bad If you wanted to read quality horror, you had to read some Richard Matheson or some Ray Bradbury or even a classic Mary Shelley.
Anyway, thank God, a few Oscars for films based on Stephen King's books have certainly helped to upgrade the author.
The truth is that I have never really considered him a true horror author. I have never been scared when I was reading his books.
I just adore the way he writes. I love the way he describes details, the way that every detail finds its place in the end of the book, the way each detail has a meaning and a purpose.
We gotta figure out the details, Jeanette. Most people may find it boring and rambling. Nothing weird there.
It is common in all King's books. This book is just so typical of him. If somebody told me that Stephen King wrote the whole book and his son just put his name on the book cover; I would have believed it.
Another thing I love in King's books is that all of them are not what they look like. They have a reason that they exist, they have a meaning, they have an identity, they speak differently to everyone.
She had trouble with him before. Yes, this book talks differently to eveyone. I am just happy that after all these years that I was going through a period of drought away from my King's books; I trusted him again.

This is a big book so I am not going to give a big synopsis on it. The long and short of it is this: women are falling asleep, those not asleep yet are 3.
The long and short of it is this: women are falling asleep, those not asleep yet are living on red bull trying to stay awake, one woman Evie appears to be not affected by it and may have even caused it, men are either trying to help figure out what is happening or are up to no good.
For the most part, they are trying to figure out how to live and keep the sleeping women safe. This is a science fiction meets fantasy meets horror type book.
It's long and in some parts it felt long. There is a magical tree, a fox, a tiger, a snake, talking rats, moths, and about 60 or so townspeople ; some of which are asleep and some are awake.
Evie appears to be in control of all and has ties to the magical tree. Some reviewers are stating that they can tell what parts Stephen King wrote vs.
In the beginning of the book, I thought "Yes! King's part.. I often wondered while reading this book "What's the point? Tie in the sleeping illness for lack of a better word with the marital problems of the Psychiatrist and the Sheriff married to each other and you have a mess.
But an enjoyable mess. Meanwhile, Frank and Terry deputize several new recruits, including Peters and a juvenile delinquent named Eric Blass, and gradually restore order to Dooling.
Rumors of Eve's ability to sleep and wake without trouble spread throughout the town, leading Frank in a quest to start manipulating Terry to take her from the prison to somehow save the sleeping women.
Clint's son Jared and his friend Mary manage to hide Lila and three other women in an empty house, worrying that Frank will use their bodies as hostages.
Meanwhile, in an alternate dimension, the women find themselves in a post-apocalyptic Dooling, which they refer to as "Our Place".
Lila and Janice assume leadership, and the women begin to re-establish themselves, even as many mysteriously vanish due to their bodies having been destroyed by men in the real world.
A group sent to look for other survivors instead come across a magnificent Tree, which turns out to be the portal between Our Place and Dooling.
Elaine Nutting, Frank's wife, tries to burn the Tree down because she doesn't want to return to the real world, but Eve sends an inmate, Jeanette Sorley, to stop her; Jeanette has a young son whom she desperately wants to see again so she agrees to stop Elaine.
Jeanette finds Elaine in the process of setting fire to the Tree portal and wrestles the lighter and a gun away from her.
Jeanette then throws the lighter away and picks up the gun to put it in her belt. Before she can do that leaves rustle behind her.
Jeanette turns with the gun in her hand and Lila then shoots and kills Jeanette by mistake. Clint and his allies steal weapons from the police station, prompting Frank and Terry to assemble a posse to assault the prison and capture Eve.
During the attack, two criminals whom Lila had arrested based on an inmate's testimony use a stolen bazooka to blow up the station and part of the prison, killing fifteen women before Vanessa Lampley, a former guard, shoots them dead.
Terry commits suicide out of grief and cowardice, Peters and Blass are killed, and most of Frank's men desert him, but he manages to reach Eve's cell.
Clint, Jared, Janice's daughter Michaela, an inmate named Angel Fitzroy, and an elderly volunteer, Willy Burke, try to persuade him to spare her life, even as Eve herself promises Frank that killing her is the only way to save his family.
Realizing that Eve is trying to prove that men are inherently violent and should be allowed to die out, Clint uses guilt to force Eve to use her power to save Willy when his heart suddenly stops.
Seeing this, Frank and the others allow Eve to return to Our Place, where she gives the women the chance to decide whether to return to Dooling or stay put.
Ultimately, all of the women vote to return. As sleeping women around the world awake from their slumber, life slowly begins to return to normal.
