Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, not so long ago, a monster came to the small town of Castle Rock, Maine.... He was not a werewolf, a vampire, a ghoul, or an unnameable creature from the enchanted forest or snow wastes; he was only a cop....

Cujo is a huge Saint Bernard dog, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. Then one day Cujo chases a rabbit into a bolt-hole. Except it isn't a rabbit warren anymore. It is a cave inhabited by rabid bats. And Cujo falls sick. Very sick. And the gentle giant who once protected the family becomes a vortex of horror inexorably drawing in all the people around him....

Difficult read

Not the best King, but classic King all the same. I say it's difficult to read not because of the writing or the narration (although the narration leaves something to be desired) but because it's a pretty traumatic story. I finished it in two listens, and while it's probably one of my least favourite King audiobooks it's still pretty damn good.

Lorna Raver was serviceable, she did a great job with her Maine accent (Ayuh!) but the majority of her male voices either sounded like someone who was extremely creepy or just sounded like a monster. Some characters this worked for but for others it was very distracting.

7/10 altogether.

Not one of Stephen King best books

Not one of Stephen King best books. Quite slow in places and one does not really engage with the characters

Narration spoiled it for me.

I just couldn’t get along with the narration. I know and love this story, but the performance was strained, more so during dramatic elements, like running out of breath but trying to finish the sentence anyway. Seemed to have more emphasis on enunciation and diction than emotion and character.

Classic Stephen

An enjoyable book and the characters felt fleshed out. A relatively short King novel. Felt it's a great book but not his best in my opinion. Although The Stand and It and Misery are tall pillars to compare

Decent King story

Pretty decent Stephen King but I found the narrator to be very shrill and cringed on several occasions.
