I liked it a bit more than you did, but then, I had to, I have 31 copies of the book. (Still missing the UK proof and the CD lettered)

Seriously though, I liked SLEEPING BEAUTIES quite a lot. I had a few quibbles with it. I disagree with King's politics, but he has every right to put whatever he wants to in his books, they are his books, after all, and I thought the story moved along rather well. His dialog does irk me once in a while, but I'd put SB nearer the top tier of his novels I liked than the bottom.
