Editorial review from

Cujo is so well-paced and scary that people tend to read it quickly, so they mostly remember the scene of the mother and son trapped in the hot Pinto and threatened by the rabid Cujo, forgetting the multifaceted story in which that scene is embedded. This is definitely a novel that rewards re-reading. When you read it again, you can pay more attention to the theme of country folk vs. city folk; the parallel marriage conflicts of the Cambers vs. the Trentons; the poignancy of the amiable St. Bernard (yes, the breed choice is just right) infected by a brain-destroying virus that makes it into a monster; and the way the "daylight burial" of the failed ad campaign is reflected in the sunlit Pinto that becomes a coffin. And how significant it is that this horror tale is not supernatural: it's as real as junk food, a failing marriage, a broken-down car, or a fatal virus.
I read this book quite a few years ago when I read mostly horror books. My son picked up this copy to read and enjoyed it as well. Not a story that he will re-read again so it is now available.

cratclif, congrats again and thx! I will enjoy this book. A nice RABCK. It might take me a while to read this book, I admit, I am a slow but dedicated reader.



Thx for sharing. I took this book with me while I was on the road. It's still in really good condition. I enjoyed it. Passing it off to my spouse.

This is a Signet Publication, so not as pictured. I did not read this copy. But it is a good book!

Thanks for sharing buggz. This was the perfect book for our long distance reading!

For all those before me, thanks!

Again, King keeps one on the edge of their seats, nail biting, even though I knew what was going to happen.

Beware of scary dogs! :) I haven't read this one, but it's been sitting around for a while so it's ready to move on. I have to head out to a laundromat -- the heating element seems to be gone in our dryer -- so what better place to leave a few books?
