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.

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.

Gut Wrenching, SOAP OPERA

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

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.

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.
