Monday Mini Review – Sleeping Beauties by Stephen & Owen King #StephenKing #OwenKing
Sleeping Beauties: A Novel - Stephen King,Owen King

Sleeping Beauties

Amazon  /  Audible  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Sleeping Beauties is a collaboration between Stephen & Owen King, so I don’t expect it to be a Stephen King ‘original’. That being said, I did enjoy the story, but was left wondering if Stephen has lost his mojo or is in semi retirement. I hope not, because I have read a vast majority of his work and would love to have more of the old stuff. What gripped me most about the book, is the importance of the women. Hey guys, take a listen here. BUT, women without men, or vice versa, is not a workable solution to any problem. This fantasy exposes human failings, sharing their hopelessness, sadness, anger and rage, good and bad, and every emotion you can imagine. In the end, we do the best we can. There are plenty of characters for you to love and hate, but be careful, your favorite may not survive.

GOODREADS BLURB

 

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze.

 

If they are awakened, and the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.

 

The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease.

 

Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain?

"Lies Sleeping - Rivers of London / Peter Grant #7" by Ben Aaronovitch - highly recommended, especially as an audiobook
Lies Sleeping - Ben Aaronovitch

The Peter Grant series continues to be one of my most satisfying urban fantasy reads.

 

Peter's slightly off mainstream centre but ever so accurate view of the world is intoxicating, whether he's commenting on architectural faux pas, describing how rooms can be lies told by their inhabitants, critiquing the dynamics that result in police officers using terms like "pro-active, intelligence-led operations" or looking deeper into the history of London.

 

In this book, you can see that Peter has matured. He has people that he's responsible for, a stable relationship with a woman/goddess who rescued him from Fairyland and a firmer grasp of his own capabilities. Yet he's still driven by curiosity and deeply angered by the abuse of power. 

 

I liked that Peter isn't becoming some Doctor Strange figure, fighting the forces of darkness alone. He still sees himself as a policeman and it pleased me to see him working as part of a team with other officers from the Met. I liked the idea of needing PACE-compliant interview rooms for magical suspects and of having dozens of analysts combing data and putting actions into Holmes.

 

The plot is filled with threat, mystery and humour. It continues to have London itself as a character, with its past and present shaping the flow of events. These events also move the Leslie story arc forward in a decisive way and pull together things learned in earlier books.

 

I was particularly impressed with the new addition to the Folly. The story behind that made a bridge to earlier books and demonstrated Peter's growing maturity.

 

I loved meeting the talking foxes again. The dialogue with them made me smile.

 

The only thing that pushed me out of the story a little was the way that Nightingale kept getting sidelined by circumstance. I can see that this gave Peter the space to operate but it will be frustrating and not very credible if it continues.

 

I consumed this book in a couple of days and that was only because I made myself take a break and get some sleep rather than reading it in one gulp. It's a gift to the fans.

 

I listened to the audiobook version narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. His performance is superb.

 

I read "Lies Sleeping" as the "latest in a series" book for the Diwali door in 24 Festive Tasks.

Reading progress update: I've read 52%. mmmm, the sweet smell of a new Peter Grant story in the morning.
Lies Sleeping - Ben Aaronovitch

The Peter Grant series continues to be one of my most satisfying urban fantasy reads.

 

 

Peter's slightly off mainstream centre but ever so accurate view of the world is intoxicating, whether he's commenting on architectural faux pas, describing how rooms can be lies told by their inhabitants, critiquing the dynamics that result in police officers using terms like "pro-active, intelligence-led operations" or looking deeper into the history of London, his thoughts are intoxicating.

 

 

Add to that a plot filled with threat, mystery and humour and I'm not at all surprised that I'm halfway through this book less than a day after starting it.

24 Festive Tasks: Diwali, Task #4
Vinegar Girl: A Novel (Hogarth Shakespeare) - Anne Tyler
Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding - Rhys Bowen
Ham Bones - Carolyn Haines
Dark Road to Darjeeling - Deanna Raybourn
Sleeping With Anemone - Kate Collins

Task #4:  During Diwali, people pray to the goddess Lakhshmi, who is typically depicted as a beautiful young woman holding a lotus flower.  Find 5 books on your shelves (either physical or virtual) whose covers show a young woman holding a flower and share their cover images.

 

93 pages of book covers later, it turns out I actually had 5 books with women holding flowers on their covers.  After seeing the struggles others have had, I was delightfully surprised.  Though I would have been even more delighted had I not had to look through 93 pages to find them.
