Publisher's Summary

The number-one national best seller for Stephen King's rabid fans, Cujo "hits the jugular" (The New York Times) with the story of a friendly Saint Bernard that is bitten by a sick bat. Get ready to meet the most hideous menace ever to savage the flesh and devour the mind.

Cujo is a 200-pound Saint Bernard, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. One day Cujo chases a rabbit into a cave inhabited by sick bats. What happens to Cujo, how he becomes a horrifying vortex inescapably drawing in all the people around him, makes for one of the most heart-stopping novels Stephen King has ever written.

"A genuine page-turner that grabs you and holds you and won't let go" (Chattanooga Times), Cujo will forever change how you view man's best friend.

    "Great Narrator"

    Good book, good narrator. Ignore Hubert's hypersexist "review". I'm really scared for people that assign gender or masculinity to a book.

    That being said, I love King books that are from the pov of kids or animals, he has some empathy with them that makes the writing come out believable and superb. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Good story, annoying narrator"
    If you could sum up Cujo in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful but slow-ish


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favorite thing was that Cujo had his own point of view. He wasn't a monster at all, really.


    What aspect of Lorna Raver’s performance would you have changed?

    I would have replaced her with someone less annoying. Her performance made me have less sympathy for the characters -- she made the main character seem wimpy and irritating and her Tad was a whiny, irritating child.


    Who was the most memorable character of Cujo and why?

    Cujo - he wanted to be a Good Dog and he WAS, until the rabies ruined his brain. I felt a lot of sympathy for him (more when I read the written version than I did with the audiobook)


    Any additional comments?

    It sure would be nice if Stephen King would narrate his own books. I may be picky because I saw that some people really enjoyed this narrator, but I just could not stand her.

    An amateur writer who recently completed their first novel. I prefer fantasy, sci-fi, and horror novels but loathe non-fiction.

    Story
    "Plot as an Afterthough"

    Stephen King's greatest flaw was on display in this story:

    Plot as an afterthought.

    I love many King classics such as It, The Stand, The Shining, Salem's Lot, etc., but I haven't been able to read his latest books because the plotting is so horrendously slow. I quit halfway through Buick 8, Doctor Sleep, Cell, and Mr. Mercedes for this very reason. I thought it was a problem which only affected his more recent writings, but after attempting to read Cujo I realize the seeds for his plotting issues were always there. I quit halfway through Cujo, too.

    "Terrible narrator for book "

    Story told by what sounded like everyone was 90. Roger sounded like the young boy from the movie Overboard starring Kurt Russell when he tried sounding like PeeWee Herman. Just not the right person to read this kind of book in my opinion.

    "Wonderful Narration"

    Stephen King has a writing style that flows cleanly, even when you're sitting there wondering why he's written something into story, and Lorna Raver does an outstanding job of narrating.
