    One thought on “Cujo

    1. Dan Schwent on said:

      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 terror and jammed as much padding into it as he could until it was one of his shorter novels. Basically, it's a fantastic short story wrapped in a soap opera I couldn't give two shits about.That being said, Cujo is a rea [...]

      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 more complex than would seem on it's surface. And like the best of Sabbath: It rocks.Yes, it's about a town that gets eaten by a big, rabid dog, but King is able, and with some credibility, to tell a tale of modern par [...]

      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 to continue reading. The first time I read this book was after having watched the movie. Cool enough flick. Slasher film with a dog instead of a masked killer. Survivor is the woman and her son. Rock on. I don't li [...]

      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 appetite. Start to become easily confused. Tired. His brain would melt and with that he'd forget about you. Forget the loyalty and love he held for you.He'd feel intense pain.In his eyes YOU would become the reason that he f [...]

      The monster never dies.4.5Cujo 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 Pet Sematary which is my favorite King's book, and that says quite a lot. Cujo is a story about a Saint Bernard dog who one day chased a rabbit into a bolt-hole. The problem was that the hole was filled with rabid bats, and [...]

      Isuse Hriste na biciklu _________Nedeljama nakon čitanja ove knjige osećaj izmoždenosti i devastiranosti me ne napušta, utisak je i dalje prejak. Iz neobjašnjivih razloga dugo sam želela da pročitam ovu knjigu i ispostavilo se da će mi ona biti među omiljenim Kingovim pričama.Opisi likova i radnje, tačnije apsolutno svega što se dešava čine da sve teče toliko sporo da se u jednom trenutku zapitate zašto i čemu sve to. Sa druge stranje, upravo zbog te detaljnosti, sa likovima sam [...]

      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 turns Cujo into monster who longs for food and no one can feel safe around this formerly beloved dog. The scenes with Cujo were nerve-wracking, but what I loved the most about this novel were the characters which we [...]

      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 Awardd (two!) movies. All I ever seemed to do when I was drunk was trash the housed worse--hurt those who loved me closest (which is why, like King, I gave the stuff up over a year ago).What a complete page turner--very hard to put down, e [...]

      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 Cujo, it started then--------------------------------------------------------Every child is afraid of the monster that creeps upon him when the lights are out in the bedroom and mom and dad are safely ensconced in their roo [...]

      Te dije que se irían, Tad, le susurró. Siempre lo hacen al final. Y entonces yo puedo volver. Me gusta volver. Tú me gustas, Tad. Ahora volveré todas las noches, creo, y todas las noches me acercaré un poco más a tu cama y un poco más hasta que una noche, antes de que puedas llamarles a gritos, oirás algo rugiendo, algo rugiendo justo a tu lado, Tad, y seré yo y me abalanzaré sobre ti y entonces te comeré y estarás en mí.Alguien me puede decir ¿qué era lo que había en el armario [...]

      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 aboutenough bad that is. You like being depressed? You like looking for the worst? Your real life doesn't have enough CRAP happening in it so you want to add more??? Well, then you've found it. If you are the kind of person who says that novels should ref [...]

      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 as all too possible. On a personal note, I have always kept a small box of water bottles and snacks in my car since learning to drive because of THIS book.Any true King fan knows how he loves to tie his novels toget [...]

      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 even in town during Cujo's rabid attacks (but are partially indirectly responsible).However, Stephen King is really good about keeping you interested in various types of gray characters. Some of them are just cut an [...]

      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 impossible for anything else to hold my interest just because it wasn't that novel?In exasperation, it was back to the Stephen King well, dipping back into those early ones I had never gotten to. I grabbed Cujo with mild rese [...]

      از اون دسته کتاب هایی بود که موقع خوندنش کلی آدرنالین ترشح می کنید. در کل کتاب خوبی بود.حاشیه زیاد داشت ولی انقدری نبود که حوصله تون رو سر ببره بلکه بیشتر مشتاقتون می کرد که ببینید قراره بعدش چه اتفاقی بیوفته. توصیه میکنم که اگر مثل من یه مقدار ترسو و خیالاتی هستین این کتاب رو قب [...]

      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.🐯👍

      “The world was full of monsters, and they were all allowed to bite the innocent and the unwary” Who doesn't love dogs? Loyal, innocent , silly little balls of fluff. But what happens when a dog goes rabid? What happens when the loyal loving dog you've known for years turns into a lethal killing machine with revenge on its mind?Cujo is the loving loyal, but gigantic saint bernard owned by the Chambers, Brett, Charity and Joe. When the Trenton family first meet the Chambers, Cujo is a friendly [...]

      CujoCujo mi tan subestimado Cujo!Cuando empecé a leer esta novela, leí mas criticas negativas que positivas. Hacía rato que quería comenzar a leerlo, pero no me animaba por los comentarios de los lectores (grave error). ¿Qué decir de esta novela? bajo mi punto de vista, solo una palabra la define: "EXCELENTE". Un libro que va más allá de una trama lineal, nuevamente nos encontramos en el maravilloso Castle Rock, Maine, creado por Stephen King. Acá no conoceremos la historia de un perro [...]

      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!" but that was the end of the good part. It became such a boring book, it was hard to get through.The sideplots were lacking, especially the cereal crap. I was sick of business. Where's the suspense? I could've pick [...]

      Πόσο επικίνδυνο μπορεί να είναι ένα σκυλί με λύσσα? Αν αυτό το σκυλί είναι ένα θηρίο Αγίου Βερνάρδου 100+ κιλών? Σε μία απομακρυσμένη περιοχή? Και το βασικότερο όλων… Αν αυτό το σκυλί έχει βγει από το μυαλό του Stephen King? Η απάντηση μόνο ανησυχητική μπορεί να είναι!!!Αρχικά θέλω ν [...]

    22. Paula on said:

      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 control. I liked the small town setting of Castle Rock, Maine. The story was very atmospheric with an underlying tone of dread and apprehension throughout. Exciting, engrossing, bleak, sad, and very enjoyable.

    23. Stepheny on said:

      Stephen King never lets me down. Everything he writes just works for me. Cujo was no different. This book scared the bejesus out of me, mostly due to the chances of it happening. Granted, in today’s world with smart phones and nosy neighbors and everyone living on top of one another, it is less likely for it to happen… but it could happen…Every single character in this book is a victim. Every. One. How does that happen? How is no one the hero? Or the winner? Everyone lost in this book. Eve [...]

    24. Kealan Burke on said:

      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 later years), and after devouring it over the course of a few nights, I promptly took my library card and, using the excuse that I was getting the books for my mother, read almost everything King had released to tha [...]

      Audiobook – Narrated by Lorna Raver – Average narration.This is my first experience with Lorna Raver and I didn’t particularly like it.I don’t often enjoy female narrators, and Raver was no exception. I found her pacing to be slightly off and her character voices grating. I didn’t finish it.***Ebook:The formatting in the ebook I have is horrendous. Incorrect words, missing letters, an absolute nightmare! This is only the second time I’ve read this book, and that’s one time too many [...]

      Cujo slept.He lay on the verge of grass by the porch, his mangled snout on his forepaws. His dreams were confused, lunatic things. It was dark, and the sky was dark with wheeling red-eyed bats. He leaped at them again and again, and each time he leaped he brought one down, teeth clamped on a leathery, twitching wing. But the bats kept biting his tender face with their sharp little rat-teeth. That was where the pain came from. That was where all the hurt came from. But he would kill them all. He [...]

    27. Cody | codysbookshelf on said:

      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's way of shrugging his shoulders and saying "stuff happens." Like Roadwork before it, Cujo's gritty realism can yield fascinating results, but the journey is absolutely gut-wrenching.What makes Cujo so fascinating [...]
