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, 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 wanting 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 women's prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels particularly urgent and relevant today.… (més)

On Stephen King’s recent tour to promote his book, End of Watch, the author shared that he has collaborated on a novel with his son, Owen called Sleeping Beauties. The book is set in a women’s prison in West Virginia. A first draft has been completed and the book is expected to be released in 2017.

A book by Stephen King in co-work with his son set in a women's prison in West Virginia? Yes, I'm totally hoping this might be a female counterpart to [b:Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption|39664|Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption A Story from Different Seasons|Stephen King|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1315100686s/39664.jpg|24951203], and yes, I totally can't wait to read this.

Edit (03/19/17):
The synopsis to this novel has been published and it does not exactly sound the way I originally expected it, but that certainly doesn't change anything about my excitement for this novel.

Classic and yet not Classic Stephen King. Long book but I enjoyed every minute of it! ( )

There’s a really good book at the heart of Sleeping Beauties, but unfortunately that books is a good 400 pages shorter than the behemoth that the Kings have produced. There’s just too much filler here, and too many characters, only a few of whom really come to life on the page. I found myself wishing the book over, which is never a good sign. ( )

I both read and listened to this book. It is enormous but engrossing. It is definitely a book you want to plan the reading of, (I ended up making a daily goal for it). I first attempted listening to it, (the narration was impressive. Seriously, get an Audible copy). Then I was able to get a hard copy from the library and started over, alternating between the two.
The story was extremely interesting for me. My family is from the area where it is set. I wish I could say that some of the setting wasn’t accurate but, with the current drug issues, sadly it was. With a setting I knew and characters I might, I was easily sucked into the story. I really enjoyed it when “ Our Place,” came in to the story. That was interesting and the ending was an incredible ride. The book seems more like drama than horror to me. Though I would be freaked if women were to fall asleep inside cocoons. I will choose to leave it there as I don’t want to spoil the story by mentioning other aspects that freaked me out. There were plenty of moments of horror but mostly I saw the story as drama. It didn’t keep me up, terrified to sleep, like earlier works did. But I was invested early and stayed invested to the end. It is interesting to read of this during a time when men and women are struggling to find balance in this “equality” for all society.
I enjoyed the story. It was fun to read a story written by father and son. I have read, and am a fan of, Joe Hill, (I loved seeing him get a nod). This is my first time reading Owen King. He didn’t disappoint me and I am interested in reading other work by him. It is amazing how much writing talent is in this family, (though somewhat expected given both parents are excellent storytellers). I would recommend the book though I would caution not to expect the horror of previous books like The Shining or It. I think if you go in knowing that, you will be able to enjoy the story more. ( )

It was good. The first half of Sleeping Beauties was full of action. In the second half of the book, it slowed down. Still, I couldn't stop listening. I listening to most of the 21 CDs over 3 days. I think I will listen to the book again and appreciate it more.

If I were to give a reader a guide, it would be the following: Take a picture of the life of the character before the event. Compare the picture to life during the event. Compare the picture of after the event.

This book written with Own King has a different flavor than a solo written Stephen King book. I bet it is different than a solo Owen King book. It is a blend I would like to taste again. ( )

« Peu importe que vous soyez riche ou pauvre,
Ou que vous soyez intelligente ou idiote,
La place d'une femme dans ce monde,
Est sous la coupe d'un homme.
Et si vous êtes née femme,
Vous êtes née pour souffrir.
Vous êtes née pour être piétinée,
Dupée,
Trompée,
Et maltraitée. »
