One thought on “Cujo

  1. 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 really p [...]

  2. 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 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 paranoia an [...]

  3. 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 like that th [...]

  4. 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 feels t [...]

  5. 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 one of [...]

  6. Isuse Hriste na biciklu _________Nedeljama nakon itanja ove knjige ose aj izmo denosti i devastiranosti me ne napu ta, utisak je i dalje prejak Iz neobja njivih razloga dugo sam elela da pro itam ovu knjigu i ispostavilo se da e mi ona biti me u omiljenim Kingovim pri ama.Opisi likova i radnje, ta nije apsolutno svega to se de ava ine da sve te e toliko sporo da se u jednom trenutku zapitate za to i emu sve to Sa druge stranje, upravo zbog te detaljnosti, sa likovima sam se povezala i vi e nego [...]

  7. 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 get to [...]

  8. 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, especially w [...]

  9. 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 room They hide under the bed or in the closet The moment th [...]

  10. Te dije que se ir an, Tad, le susurr Siempre lo hacen al final Y entonces yo puedo volver Me gusta volver T me gustas, Tad Ahora volver todas las noches, creo, y todas las noches me acercar un poco m s a tu cama y un poco m s hasta que una noche, antes de que puedas llamarles a gritos, oir s algo rugiendo, algo rugiendo justo a tu lado, Tad, y ser yo y me abalanzar sobre ti y entonces te comer y estar s en m.Alguien me puede decir qu era lo que hab a en el armario de Tad En serio, alguien D ganm [...]

  11. 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 .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 Well, then you ve found it If you are the kind of person who says that novels should reflect all the pain of re [...]

  12. 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 together wi [...]

  13. 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 and dry [...]

  14. 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 reserva [...]

  15. 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.

  16. 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 giant who [...]

  17. CujoCujo mi tan subestimado Cujo Cuando empec a leer esta novela, le mas criticas negativas que positivas Hac a rato que quer a comenzar a leerlo, pero no me animaba por los comentarios de los lectores grave error Qu decir de esta novela bajo mi punto de vista, solo una palabra la define EXCELENTE Un libro que va m s all de una trama lineal, nuevamente nos encontramos en el maravilloso Castle Rock, Maine, creado por Stephen King Ac no conoceremos la historia de un perro rabioso solamente, conoce [...]

  18. 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 picked up the W [...]

  19. 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.

  20. 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 Even Cujo was a victi [...]

  21. 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 that po [...]

  22. 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 After the first read, I [...]

  23. 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 would Cu [...]

  24. 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 in the conte [...]
