Why I love it
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.Â _Sleeping Beauties_Â 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.
