    " I'm a dog lover, but whoa does this book make you look at every pooch differently! ! Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 2/13/2014

    " One of my favorite Stephen King books of all time. A study of the effects of rabies from what I thought to be a completely different and unexpected perspective. I'm glad the producers of the film did not take this angle because it would have just come off cheesy regardless of what method they tried. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crs | 2/2/2014

    " Having read a handful of other books by Stephen king, I found myself disappointed by Cujo. I never found myself "hooked" as I had been with his other books. Maybe it was also the fact I knew of the movie, and always hearing references to Cujo every time someone was talking about a big or mean dog, that I thought it was going to be better as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Clark-cook | 1/31/2014

    " Not my favorite King outing, too much to try and make sense of, even knowing that you have to suspend any ideas of logic while reading this kind of fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina Carr | 1/19/2014

    " Cujo was a pretty good book, as most of stephen king's books are; it has multiple plots going on at once. Two families, the Cambers and the Trentons, are falling apart. Mrs. Camber is feeling abused by her husband, and wants to leave him, and take her son with her. She wants to visit her sister and in-laws in Connecticut. The Trentons are falling apart because Mrs. Trenton had an affair behind her husbands back, and he found out and feels that their relationship won't last. The Trenton's son, Tad is having nightmares, and believes that a monster is in his closet. In the meantime, the Cambers enourmous Saint Bernard, Cujo, chases a rabbit into a cave and get bit by a rabbid bat. Slowly throughout the book he get rabbies and goes mad. His size makes him the most dangerous; in Cujo's mind every person he sees is causing him his pain, every person he sees is making him sick, and he wants revenge against them. The dynamic character is Donna Trenton, the wife. The static characters are Tad Trenton, and Brett Camber, the sons in each family, they don't really understand what is really going on in their families. Cujo is probably considered a dynamic character because he does get the rabbies, and every person he sees he believes made him sick, even if he already killed his last victim. Cujo was a good book and if you enjoy horror books I think you should read it. "

    " The only book ever to have actually scared me by just the text, not the cover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maira | 1/18/2014

    " watched movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jp992751 | 12/24/2013

    " Not as good as some of his other works and with the bleak ending it left me a bit depressed but it was still a page turner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicholas Hansen | 12/23/2013

    " This is the scariest King novel I have ever read. If you were ever afraid of monsters in your closet growing up then this book is for you. And in case you are wondering, there are more things to fear in this book than the rabid dog, though he too is pretty frightening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget Ware | 12/13/2013

    " This book was really well written and it honestly scared the crap out of me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrice Hoffman | 11/29/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I was right there in the car with the lady and her son. SK did a really great job with this one. I don't know if I liked this one more than It... but it runs a pretty close race with being on my SK favorites list. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Swart | 11/24/2013

    " This has to have been the worst Stephen King book I've ever read... So far, really the only disappointment I've had with his stories in general. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 11/24/2013

    " First Stephen King book I ever read. I was about 14 and I hated to read. I remember my sister telling me how one of her friends had read it and had nightmares for weeks. Thanks Lindsay, I started reading it immediately. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 10/17/2013

    " Spine-tingling!! Read the book instead of watching the movie where they try to give it a happy ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt | 10/5/2013

    " My dad wouldn't let me finish this because it wasn't "clean." This from the guy who took me to see Robocop when I was, like, 12. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorsi | 8/26/2013

    " Absolutely terrifying. I was bitten by a large dog as a child but can't imagine being stalked by a rabid Saint Bernard. Riveting, on the edge of your seat, all out scary! Well written page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa James | 4/12/2013

    " Again, much scarier than the movie, if you don't know what the effects of rabies on a dog are. I think it was much more sensationalized in the movie, but the book drew very close parallels to Old Yeller for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rafsyan Rodzi | 11/12/2012

    " i really suprised thast poor little tad would die. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 9/28/2012

    " First book I ever read because my mom wouldn't let me see the movie until I read the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy Pozen | 8/9/2012

    " Movie was terrible. Book was very good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naturalnylon | 7/10/2012

    " WOW. What a terrible ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 4/12/2012

    " Little long winded in parts, but still good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Crizzle | 1/9/2012

    " Stephen King is disgusting. And I'm a wuss and got scared. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/19/2011

    " Spare, surprisingly effective, and more genuinely heartbreaking than I expected. Like much early King, it's as much about the stress and strain of everyday life-- lost jobs, crumbling marriages, missed opportunities, fading youth-- as it is about the abnormal or the supernatural. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pru | 5/21/2011

    " The movie was pretty good but not as good as the book. The ending was different which spoiled it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 5/20/2011

    " Scared the shit out of me and I couldn't sleep for almost a week afterwards. Then again, I was like 8 the first time I read this freaky tale. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Virginia | 5/19/2011

    " This is when I stopped reading Stephen King. Mad dog running around car for a hundred pages . . . UGH "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosie | 5/13/2011

    " Not one of my favourite King novels. What can I say; I guess I'm more of a cat person. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 5/1/2011

    " Best Stephen King I have read! Loved it! Everyone should read it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Blythe | 4/21/2011

    " This is one of the worst books I have ever read. I wish I could take back every second I wasted reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacie | 3/31/2011

    " Again, much more enjoyable before I had my own son! NOT a happy ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cody | 3/19/2011

    " This book terrified me, I'm afraid of dogs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Willi | 3/19/2011

    " We have owned a St. Bernard dog and it was hard to realize an evil dog. The story was, as usual, frightening as only Stephen King can produce.Having a young son myself when I read this, I can imagine a mother's plight keeping her child safe.Good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 3/17/2011

    " One of the few non-supernatural books by King,along with The Dark Hlaf, and Tommy Knockers (aliens).
    Not one of his best, but still a good read top pass time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 3/11/2011

    " I believe that this was my first Stephen King book, and I am very glad to say that it did not dissapoint. Obviously I am an avid Stephen King reader, and I think "Cujo" had a lot to do with that. The sensory details and the plot lines in here are great. "
