Publisher Description

Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine

The #1 national bestseller 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.

Outside a peaceful town in central Maine, a monster is waiting. Cujo is a two-hundred-pound Saint Bernard, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. One day, Cujo chases a rabbit into a cave inhabited by sick bats and emerges as something new altogether.

Meanwhile, Vic and Donna Trenton, and their young son Tad, move to Maine. They are seeking peace and quiet, but life in this small town is not what it seems. As Tad tries to fend off the terror that comes to him at night from his bedroom closet, and as Vic and Donna face their own nightmare of a marriage on the rocks, there is no way they can know that a monster, infinitely sinister, waits in the daylight.

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.

"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."

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
