Sleeping Beauties

by Stephen King and Owen King

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. _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.

    "Steven and Owen did a great job creating a new world. Lots of characters to keep track of, but they all add to the story. I was disappointed in the ending though! Wanted a change from the usual. "

    "This story just kept getting more and more complex and interesting and crazy! So gruesome and twisted I loved it! It really makes you wonder what would happen today. Last 10 pages kinda a boring end."
