Sleeping Beauties is the story is based on the concept that how this world would be without the presence of women in it.  The mere thought of it could be horrifying, and because Stephen King has written Sleeping Beauties, the book is totally riveting.

The novel is set in a small Appalachian town where the majority of people work in a women’s prison. The story of Sleeping Beauties starts when some weird thing happens to all the women when they sleep. They get shrouded into cocoon-like gauze. And when they are awakened or the gauze is disturbed, the women become fiercely violent and dreadful. Their real selves are actually transported to some other place. Consequently, all the men are left abandoned in our world.

The main character of the Sleeping Beauties is Evie, a mysterious lady who is immune to this eerie sleeping disease. Through this wildly provocative and constant read,  Whether Evie is a medical anomaly or a demon who is a danger to all the men in the world is what ‘Sleeping Beauties’ by Stephen King & Owen King is all about.

  1. @Lee – I haven’t realized this was about politics. What do you mean? I think the base idea was very interesting, the inequality between sexes is still present and we men should really change our ways in many cases. I guess SK is old enough to know all the ugly stuff men do to women (as well as the ones women do to men)… 🙁 I was happy to see a fiction story that has a moral – nowadays everything is only about the action, without the intention to make things better (e.g. revenge movies, made simply to help let off frustration). IMO it was a very good book and I finished it off in a few days. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it on Netflix soon…

  2. I wanted very much to like this book, but FFS, King, I get it. I don’t care about his politics, and I don’t read his books to read about them. If I wanted to be slapped in the face with yet more politics, I wouldn’t be reading fiction novels to get away from them! I had such high hopes, and the book just left me p1ssed off. I regret the time it took to read it.
