    Story
    What would have made Cujo better?

    Had Donna and/or her husband had the common sense to have some defense training, she would have removed the Lady Smith from her purse and shot Cujo through the window thereby avoiding much heartbreak and misery. Of course King would then not have had this unrealistic novel to write. Of course, King would never arm any of his characters because it is better for them to die from stupidity than live because they were able to defend themselves.


    Has Cujo turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Only books contribed by agenda driven authors.


    Did Lorna Raver do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did the best she could with the material at hand.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Cujo?

    Everything after Donna shoots the rabid killer dog Cujo, and the family goes on their way.


    Any additional comments?

    Cujo is an example of how a politically agendized writer can twist what would be an easily remedied situation into a hellish nightmare for the politically correct who would allow their family to suffer rather than take reasonable steps to protect themselves. This also holds true for those who travel into the wilderness to pet grizzly bears (with no protection) in the belief that their liberal love for all deadly creatures (animal and human) will be rewarded by being spared from the killer instincts that nature has instilled within those creatures, after which some sad book or movie is written detailing the removal of life and/or limb.Other than that I don't have much of an opinion.

    In The Godfather's Revenge, the third and concluding novel in Mario Puzo's landmark saga, Mark Winegardner moves the Corleone family onto the biggest stage of all: the intersection of organized crime and national politics.

    What would have made The Godfather's Revenge better?

    More interesting story


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Winegardner again?

    Probably not.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't think the narrator could have made it better, perhaps more enthusiasm.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Boring story, boring presentation, no substitute for M. Puzo
