I'm guessing this was 90% Owen & 10% Stephen. Very hard to read at times & I can't stress enough that I read to get away from the real world....especially politics. I don't care about your politics; write an entertaining book! I don't know if I will buy another Stephen King book. It was bad enough to pay $17 for an e-book & it got a lot worse when you could tell right away that it was not a Stephen King novel!

As a constant reader of King's I'm annoyed and insulted by this book. Page 24: I have to force myself to stop reading. I should have known by the synopsis what the agenda is here. Also, nepotism sucks.

Underwhelming to say the least! I was expecting so much better.

I was really put off by the price tag on this book....$16.99 for an ebook that's 650ish pages! But being a Stephen King fanatic, I paid the price. I don't know that I will be doing that again. I love, love, love Stephen King but hated this book. If you're reading the reviews before purchasing, pass on this one. Normally I can't put his books down, but this one was so boring and lacking that I had difficulty finishing it.

Great book. What is tragic is how ignorant so many readers are; demanding entertainment without social commentary. Art, literature, film--these are not produced in a vacuum. Since the dawn of writing things happen in context. We simply have to improve our educational system, or we will continue to produce people angry that they were asked to think about serious issues, and voting for a vile reality show star as if he were a statesman worthy of our highest office.

Classic King. You cheer for the hero and the villain. Then, you get confused about who the villain really is. Everyone is good and bad.

The only reason Stephen King's name on it to help Owen. Owen is not like his brother Joe Hill and it shows with Sleeping Beauties. It was boring and overlong.

Great read! Some moments of too much detail that skimmed through to get to the "guts" of the story ...but overall a great book!

Not as violent as his other books.Good story but the women should have stayed in the new world as the men have screwed up this one.

Loads of characters with believable thoughts and feelings, woven together in a way to make the supernatural believable as well. The struggle between good and evil, right and wrong, and men and women in this book will draw you in, break your heart,and wish the novel wouldn't end.

I'm not a credible reviewer when it comes to Stephen King. I've devoured all his books and watched all his movies. His creative mind captivates me...I credit him for helping me to back off traditional decisions during my career and allowing more creative responses and ideas play at work. I'm always amazed how I can totally visualize his stories in my head yet when it comes to explaining the book to others, I sound like a crazy person. King's stories are not predictable - I impatiently wait for the next book, as I have for over 40 years.

King's talent for character development seems to have LEFT him in this novel

A remarkable portrayal of 1950s rural America. Oh wait, this novel preposterously takes place in the current day where men call women "skirts" and 1990s tennis player Monica Seles anachronistically is still grunting her ground strokes. King and son's extraordinarily patronizing view of women too helpless and meek to function aside the oppressive and predatory version of the authors' contemporary Western male is not, alas, parody. In brutal contrast to King's simplifying demonization of Western culture as systemically oppressing and abusing females en masse in servitude and submission, hundreds of millions of real women, on this and not King's version of earth, suffer under the sanctioned oppression of Sharia or other actual patriarchal and disempowering male societies. After pondering for days as to how such a gifted and often wise writer could produce such nonsense, I arrived at a theory; that Mr. King wrote this while in the throes of severe PTSD after watching his Dark Tower masterpiece mangled beyond all recognition and realizing he had eliminated any possibility of his magnum opus ever being properly adapted to film. Or another theory: that he wrote purposefully his worst novel by far to distract from cinema's worst ever adaption.

Here's another King book that takes the reader on an adventure that is fantastically scary in its realism in the human emotion.

With so much recent emphasis on the relational aspects between women and men over the years, it was intriguing to read this novel and see a theme fleshed out that has been plaguing us for centuries.

Great premise, but very slow and tedious reading. I skipped 50 pages several times and did not lose the story thread. I had much more interesting ideas on fleshing out the characters; they were one dimensional. Fortunately I got the book from the library.
