Product Description

King, for the first time writing with his son, Owen, releases an epic horror that will definitely appeal to his fans. A clever story that can be interpreted on more than one level. Women go to sleep and begin to never wake up and they form protective cocoons around themselves. It’s impossible to wake them without dire result: they become murderous, or zombie-like. But Evie is an exception; she seems to have supernatural abilities and is somehow connected to the strange phenomenon. King’s usual nuanced characters and clever plot are enhanced here by a slightly different edge: an allegorical slant. It can be read as social comment on Trumpist fake news , his rampant sexism and the gender politics of our day. This adds a slightly different and rather interesting dimension to what is anyway a great story.
