Sleeping Beauties

by Stephen King and Owen King

Why I love it

Book of the Month

What would men do in a world without women? Stephen King partners with his son Owen to create a near-future thriller in which all women have fallen into a trance-like sleep'”all except for one. _Sleeping Beauties_ follows two groups of men, with very different motives, who track the one immune woman in the world. It’s as all-consuming as you’ve come to expect from the master of the page-turner.

    I am a huge Stephen King fan, He has one of the greatest imaginations. have read all his books and this one rates up there at the top. Glad his son Owen writes with the same style. Highly recommend.

    Stephen King has been my favorite author since I was 12 years old. I'm now 44 and still love his books. This one is no exception, and I love that he wrote it with his son. It really makes you think.

  • Chicago, IL

    Very King-ish, but what I found most interesting is how he intertwined current issues into the plot. I don't want to specify, as I don't want to give anything away, but there is certainly a message.

  • Chico, CA

    I was a bit hesitant at first, as it is by both Stephen King and his son. It is not a horror novel, exactly? I highly recommend this to anyone. Both similar and different than King's usual work.

  • Riverside, CA

    Stephen and Owen King prove that genius runs in the family ! This book evokes strong emotion and makes the reader think about the power of nature versus nurture ! It's a huge page turning tome!

  • St Marys, GA

    I could not put this book down. I started reading it the night it arrived in my doorstep, and didn't finish until I closed the final page two days later. It was a wild ride from start to finish.

  • New York , NY

    An incredible 702 pg journey,what a great collaboration. SK does not disappoint.While reading this I often ended up dreaming about the book. A true masterpiece,can't believe I own a signed copy!

  • Glendale, AZ

    King. Master in the gift of writing! Able to frighten, laugh, cry & draw you into his novels and make you feel. How has he written all he has written in such a short time? He's the KING is how.

  • Lincoln, NE

    Plenty of setup to lead into a good climax and a realistic ending. Very thought-provoking with multifaceted characters in all walks of life, and how they act together and apart makes the story.

  • Las Vegas, NV

    I originally got this book for my son. He has a Stephen King Collection. So I bought another copy for my self. This story reminded me of Under the Dome. It was a great story.

  • Belton , MO

    Kings collaborate for a intricate and exciting novel told in the beauty of their art. Loved it. Read it 4 times already. Think OITNB meets a King story. You won't be disappointed.

  • Chesterton, IN

    In a world ruled by women.... we have everything we need. In a world ruled by men... we have chaos and pain. I enjoy the King books that are not too scary but keep me on my seat.

  • Emmett, MI

    Love the idea of this book, and the way their minds think up stories like this. Blows my mind!! Love books with a lot of different story lines that all come together.

  • Allenstown, NH

    I love Stephen King, and have been thrilled with his children’s books so far, and this didn’t disappoint! It was wonderfully thought out, and a nice easy read.

  • Aberdeen, MD

    This book had me at page 1. It is long and heavy to carry (fitness and reading happiness). It is definitely a page turner. Stephen King and son do not disappoint.
