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.

    Story
    "Gut Wrenching, SOAP OPERA"

    IT WAS AMAZING HOW BAD YOU CAN HURT WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING PHYSICALLY WRONG
    Like most King books, the characters are well written and fleshed out. I felt that the horror was minimal, barely even classifying this as a horror novel. The main theme revolved around a main character whose wife cheats on him. We are made to feel his humiliation and his hurt. I felt the hurt so much, that unlike him, I could not forgive his wife. Everything she did made me mad. King empathizes and tries to give a good excuse for her infidelity, but I felt the hurt so much that it did not work for me. Some may ask if I would have felt the hurt so much if it had been the other way around and to be honest I don't know. As a man, if your wife cheats, it makes you question, everything in your life. Most men's lives are so wrapped around masculinity and if they don't have that they have no worth, as a human. That may be right or wrong, but it is what society has made us. WEARING THE HORNS

    GARY DIDN'T GIVE A SH IT.
    King writes like a fisherman. He hooks you by getting you to care about his characters and than he reels you in by putting them in scary situations. Like most books there is plenty of pop culture from 1981 thrown in. King also seemed to be worried about getting older, as there are several references to it.

    RAVER
    I loved the narrator and thought she did a great job. Some others disagree. She was very dramatic, maybe for some, too much so. I know I got real tired of the four year old and his crying, yet it was very realistic of real life.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Just o.k."

    This is one of those rare instances where I liked the movie better than the book. This story takes a long time to develop and has far too much backstory. I also didn't care for this narrator at all.

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

    "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.

    "Decent story/Poor narration"

    It's one of King's weaker books and really has little to do with a scary dog, but it's still good. The narrator was one of the worst I've listed to on a King production.

    "Probably my least favorite King book"
    If you could sum up Cujo in three words, what would they be?

    mediocre King thriller


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    Narrator was excellent, but the story itsself seemed like King half-assed this one.
