    I'm guessing that many of you own or have owned a dog at some point in your life. And, i'm also guessing that you'd consider said dog to be loyal to you and part of your family. So, I ask you, can you possibly imagine what you'd do if your dog went rabid? Pooch would lose his appeti...

    Damn this is not what everyone said it would be! I appreciate good suspense, but trust me, after 50 pages in that frickin' car, you get pretty bored. It started out awesomely, with Cujo getting bit and going slowly rabid. He kills a few, and then I said, "Yes! Here comes the good part...

    Wow. Wow, wow, wow. I haven't actually gone back and read this since the Saturday after it was first published. That's when I went down to the local bookstore, bought it, dragged it home and devoured it in a single sitting. It appears I may have gulped a bit too fast on this o...

    Unlike most rabid King fans and purists, I came to Cujo rather late. I was barely into double-digit age when I first snuck my mother?s copy of Pet Sematary into my room and read it under the covers (a book that is largely responsible/to blame for the path my life and career took in l...

    All hail the King. Since giving Empire Falls five huge stars back in March, I have had seven, count 'em, SEVEN DNFs out of the past 10 books I've started since then. This was really starting to worry me. Was it possible that Empire Falls had such a hold on me that it would be impos...

    When a two hundred pound St. Bernard goes rabid, no one is safe! Who will fall to Cujo before the disease he carries finishes him off? I'm just going to come out and say it. Most of this book feels like filler to me. I think King took what was potentially an award winning tale of te...

    This book is terrifying. More so because the important events in the story could all actually happen. They are real possibilities. This story would not work in today?s age of cell phones and constant communication, but for anyone with a memory of the way things used to be, it reads a...

    Gag. I thought about just leaving that one word as my review. Or maybe adding "'nuff said" as they used to say in Marvel Comics when I was "younger". I thought maybe though you'd like more. I hate it. This is one of those books I can't say enough about...enough bad that is. You l...

    Cujo gets bitten by a rabid bat and the big friendly lovable Saint Bernard turns into a murderous beast. I really enjoyed this one a lot. I loved that Cujo's point of view was included. I couldn't help but feel for Cujo with all that happened to him due to circumstances beyond his cont...

    Writing a review about Cujo is a little like reminiscing about being a teenager and listening to Black Sabbath. Trying to describe it, and to put the experience in words, reveals the cartoonish elements in stark relief. But while being read, the novel is rich with storytelling and ...

    Even though I don't think it will spoil your reading experience, I have to warn you that there are mild spoilers ahead. I wrote in my review of The Shining that it was the scariest book that I ever read. Well, that may be, but there the horror ended when I closed the book. With C...

    Cujo is a hard book to read. It's a short book, but there are certain scenes that just gut me. And all those sections occur in the last 25 pages of the book. The first half of this book goes by rather quickly. Then Donna and Tad get stuck out at Camber's place and I simply do not want ...

    A fantastic book about fear in its many forms. My expectations were way exceeded by this book. The tension is perfect. ...

    The monster never dies. 4.5 Cujo was a book I thought I was going to like, but not be scared of it (I mean, how scary can a rabid dog be, really?), but boy was I wrong with the second statement! This book did scare me. It still does when I think about it. It even reminded me of...

    If you're looking for a creepy read, this is it. "Cujo" was written during a time in which Stephen King was doing drugs, and it was exactly for that reason that I wanted to read it. Cujo is a cute, however big, St. Bernhards dog, who one day gets bitten by a rabid bat. This incidence ...

    Oh Cujo. I hated every moment of this book--wrestling with picking it up and putting it down over and over again. It took me a whole month to read despite it's slim size. At just over 300 pages, this is one of King's most trimmed down and edited books in terms of the storyline. I wa...

    Well, I can probably now clarify, that I'm a member of the Stephen King fan club. I literally devoured this book in a couple of days. If it wasn't for real life, I could have read it in one sitting. This book is a terrifying mind-fuck. Terrifying in the sense that the events that pan o...

    Wow! That ending was a real gut punch. Stephen King usually doesn't do that but...... Holy Shit! Cujo was written while Stephen King was in the depths of his alcoholism. Uncle Stevie doesn't even remember writing it and if you think about it he didn't write it his alcoholism di...

    I read Cujo when I was in my teens, but not a lot stayed with me I think because I ended up skimming a lot. I think I was freaked out by some of the things in this book (a man talking easily about raping a woman, another man beating his wife, etc.) and it just caused me to not look too...

    Having read this book years ago in the 7th grade (and told by my science teacher not to bring it to school anymore because the front cover artwork "gave her the willies"), I'm no stranger to Cujo. I'd also seen the film when I was ten years old. I guess back then I never really appreci...

    4.5* New movie version currently in production! This book was so well written, the characters completely fleshed out, that it's very hard to believe King wrote this book so drunk that he doesn't even remember writing it! Wow! And to then win the British Fantasy Award...and (two!) mo...

    But in high school the business of irrevocable choices began. Doors slipped shut with a faint locking click that was only heared clearly in the dreams of later years. People who haven't read Cujo probably only know about the mad murdering dog premise, but Cujo is actually more t...

    Goddammit!! This is currently on offer: 1.99p in the UK, $1.99 in the US (I think - it's showing as $2.68 - probably because of the exchange rate). It's the same price for: Lisey's Story, Insomnia, 11.22.63 and Hearts in Atlantis, too! ...

    Of Stephen King's novels, this is probably the most difficult one for me to read. It's well-written, don't get me wrong -- the prose here is absolutely gorgeous, among King's most direct and poetic -- but it is so bleak. There is nary a light in the tunnel. Instead, this novel is King'...

    Disturbing... Cujo is a good dog. He would do anything for his man, his woman and his boy. He would even die for them if it came to that. But when Cujo goes messing around and contracts the terrible disease rabies, he turns into a completely different dog. A dog that Donna and her son...

    I really liked this story but I didn't think it was as good as Pet Semetery. Most Stephen King books have great audiobook readers but the woman who read this one wasn't very appropriate for the book. She is an old woman that sounded like a witch. If this book was about old people or wi...

    What a scary book. A lovely furry cuddly St. Bernard. Everybody loves the St. Bernard. It is a life saver of a breed. So was Cujo. Until he developed Rabies. The rest is a frightening tale. A good film too starring Dee Wallace.?? ...

    Obviously CUJO is classified as horror, but this book is more of an excellent character study to me. A lot of the novel is about human interaction and relationships. ...

    I guess I'll stick with my original 3-star rating. This almost feels like it should have been a novella. There isn't quite enough meat here for a full-length novel. By the end, I just wanted it over and stopped caring about the switches back and forth between town members who weren't e...
