Not the fairy tale I was expecting. ( )

Awful. Started out interesting and then the story took the PC Bat and bashes you over the head with political correctness for the remaining 99% of the book. ( )

I really enjoyed this book written by Stephen King and his son, Owen. Sometimes with Stephen King books I tend to get bored and frustrated because it seems to go on forever...without making a lot of sense or headway. I think his son's input kept some of the craziness away. The ending was of course crazy, but the everything seemed to be addressed and closed, which I feel recent King books has been lacking. ( )

I struggled with rating this one. There was the part of me that wanted to give it two stars for the following reasons:

* Far too long and rambling for the story it tells
* Much too heavy with the hammer on the sex-political message nail
* Way too many characters to be able to maintain empathy/a reader-relationship with most of them

It's possible that the empathy thing is on purpose. Every character in this story comes off as self-absorbed, self-righteous, and lacking in empathy for those with whom they do not share characteristics.

Eventually I went with three stars because it's an important (though a wee bit surfacey and misguided on some "facts" in the details) story for the time in which we live. I think it could be a good yarn (and much, much better at getting its point across) if it was distilled to something less of the sprawl that it is. Also, I can't assign a 2.5-star rating on this platform.

Because of its length and having to constantly refresh myself on what this or that character had said and done when I last saw them a hundred pages ago, getting through this novel was a bit of a slog (look at my dates started and finished). More than once, I put it down and swore I would just move on to something more likely to keep my attention. However, because I'm a fan of the elder King, I always relented and picked it back up again. In Sleeping Beauties, it felt like Stephen and Owen King were attempting to write The Stand for the 2010s. If that is the case, I can't say that they succeeded.

I believe this would have been a much more enjoyable and poignant read if cut to something less than a doorstop. There are some entire chapters within this epic that could have been removed without consequence to the story or to the messages the authors were attempting to convey. In fact, at least one chapter near the end of the story in which a hiker quite literally wipes her ass with the Constitution seems to have no bearing on anything that came before it or anything follows after it.

Sections like that like jolted me out of the story because I immediately began to wonder to whom the message of that chapter was intended and, in fact, what was the message? Was it to troll the extreme righties who harass Stephen King on his Twitter feed? Do any extreme righties actually ever read either of the King men's novels in order for them to troll them like that? Or maybe I just missed the point. That's happened before and will again.

Unlike much of Stephen King's work (especially his late 70s throughout the 80s stuff), this isn't a book I'm likely to reread. There are too many characters, too much head-hopping, and not enough layers to it to maintain my interest. That said, for those who want to read a sex-politics charged epic, you could do much worse.

« Peu importe que vous soyez riche ou pauvre,
Ou que vous soyez intelligente ou idiote,
La place d'une femme dans ce monde,
Est sous la coupe d'un homme.
Et si vous êtes née femme,
Vous êtes née pour souffrir.
Vous êtes née pour être piétinée,
Dupée,
Trompée,
Et maltraitée. »
