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.--Provided by Publisher.… (mais)

Love the concept. ( )
  LillianCox | Jul 3, 2024 |
The storyline was unique and interesting....and it was well written, of course....but, its honestly little more than a feminist anthem.

I also didn't enjoy the political aspects... as I've mentioned numerous times before....I do NOT enjoy this in my fiction...the political incorrectness used to be an aspect of Kings work I really enjoyed.

There is a review here speaking negatively of reviewers not liking the political aspects of this book....a few down from mine.....the review states " Come on, It's fiction"....EXACTLY why we don't want politics snuck in. Fictional stories are NO place to push your personally agendas and ideologies!

I enjoyed this early on, but quickly saw where it was headed. This book has so much ruined potential......Not my fave by King. ( )

I really loved this book. As I stated earlier, it started out as a library book, but I was enjoying so much that I returned it early and purchased the Kindle and audiobook versions.

Well done, Mr. King. ( )

I just finished this book and I am having a hard time putting into words how I am feeling. First off full disclosure I love Stephen King, I have had issues with clowns most of my life and still managed to read IT. The first thing that drew me with this book is the beautiful cover and the big oddity is that this book is not set in Maine. The story follows multiple character storylines. We see how these people are reacting and responding to the "Aurora" epidemic, as it is called. I thought the title of the disease was super fitting and the fact that it only effects woman drew you in even further because it does have a very big feministic undertone. Eve Black as the driving force of this novel was pure genius. The dynamics of the book and the town has a very under the dome feel to it. very well done. Owen King is not a person I have ever read I have read a few Joe Hill books and after reading this I will have to devote some more time reading books by another King. Owen welcome to my TBR list. ( )

2.5 stars CW: sexual abuse/assault and talk of suicide. Themes involving sexism and racism. ( )

Violent, subversive, and compulsively readable, this latest novel from King (Mr. Mercedes), collaborating here with his son Owen (Double Feature), derives more horror from its realistic depiction of violence against women than from supernatural elements.
adicionado por Lemeritus | editarLibrary Journal, Kiera Parrot (Sep 1, 2017)
 
King and King, father and son, take their time putting all the pieces into play: brutish men, resourceful women who've had quite enough, alcohol, and always a subtle sociological subtext, in this case of rural poverty and dreams sure to be dashed.... It's hard to say what the deeper message of the book is save that life goes on despite the intercession of supernatural weirdness - or, as one woman says, "I guess I really must not be dead because I'm starving."

It makes no difference if you're rich or poor

Or if you're smart or dumb.

A woman's place in this old world

Is under some man's thumb,

And if you're born a woman

You're born to be hurt.

You're born to be stepped on,

Lied to,

Cheated on,

And treated like dirt.

--Sandy Posey, "Born a Woman"

I say you can't not be bothered by a square of light!
