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, if 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.

  • 3 out of 5 stars
  • Not a typical King novel.

The story was drawn out and very uneventful.

The story dragged on and seemed to have little content that contributed to the story. This novel felt like 75% filler 25% actual story.
