When I was done with the book, the first line of the author's note made me smile.
"If a fantasy novel is to be believable, the details underpinning it must be realistic."
Right? Absolutely right.
Sleeping Beauties is a joint effort by the Father and Son King duo and the plot is very very interesting. The idea that women who fall asleep start to get covered in a cocoon, a white sticky thread(Something similar to the ear-wax), intrigued me. The whole incident happens just like any other normal day-to-day activity in our life where people eventually start freaking out at the happenings. There's a lot happening.
We all know how much King hates Donald Trump and that is evident in Sleeping Beauties.
There are a LOT of characters in the book and the list of characters at the beginning of the book scared me. I shouldn't be surprised that I didn't have to look at that list to remember the characters.
There were references to a dead cat and Mercedes. Is the fanboy in me connecting dots or are they for real? :D
Sleeping Beauties is a metaphor that lasts 700 plus pages. Its a fable on how the current world has taken the opposite genders for granted. Its a great book no doubt, but I wish it had a tighter ending.
