Not A Fairy Tale
The cover is beautiful, but the contents is a reckoning. I'm not a "King groupie." I received Sleeping Beauties by accident from my book club. I was too lazy to send it back. While I was recuperating from influenza, I picked it up and couldn't put it down.
Stephen and his son Owen wrote a tale with a contemporary moral. Yes, it is violent. Yes, some of the antagonists are the worst. Yet, the writing, the pacing of the story, the characters make you want to overlook the ugly and search of the beautiful.
I admired these authors that after the major conflict in the storyline was resolved, they explained how each character was impacted by the events. This is a rare.
Thank you Stephen and Owen King for a "goodread."
