Sleeping Beauties is large enough to be useful in a zombie apocalypse. At 700 pages, it’s an intricate, character-driven tale that will haunt you for a little while. I’m not going to lie. I started reading this on September 30th but because of its enormity, I ended up polishing off two smaller books before I really dug in and committed to this one. However, I’ve read more than 600 of the 700 pages in the past two days. Once it picks up, you will struggle to put it down….even if it is a behemoth.
In the sleepy little Appalachian town of Dooling, a showdown is about to occur. As the women fall asleep, encased in strange cocoons, the men must sort it out. Of course, this cannot be simple or easy or without bloodshed. In the middle of it all is Evie, a strange woman who knows too much and is clearly something more than human.

The Verdict on Sleeping Beauties
Definitely worth the time and effort. Fantastic story complete with jabs at the current political climate as well as thinly veiled pop culture references.
