Cujo | Stephen King
184 posts | 340 read | 6 reading | 98 to read
Once upon a time, not so long ago, a monster came to the small town of Castle Rock, Maine...He was not a werewolf, vampire, ghoul, or unnameable creature from the enchanted forest or from snow wastes; he was only a cop...Cujo is a huge Saint Bernard dog, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. Then one day Cujo chases a rabbit into a bolt-hole. Except it isnt a rabbit warren any more. It is a cave inhabited by rabid bats.And Cujo falls sick. Very sick. And the gentle giant who once protected the family becomes a vortex of horror inexorably drawing in all the people around him...

Happy Halloween everyone 🎃 👻 🧛‍♂️ 🧙 🍁 🍂🦹‍♀️🧟🎃

This was the only scary read this month for me. But what a story! I found the dysfunctional human relationships just as scary as poor rabid Cujo.

I read this many years ago in HS so it was like reading for the first time 😱 except for a couple incidents I vaguely remembered.

LeahBergen I think I was in high school when I first read it, too! 4w
ValerieAndBooks @LeahBergen yes, and my copy back then was the mass market edition ! 4w

Not as cute as my last post, but still dog-related! Found this hardback (book club edition) at Goodwill recently for 99 cents 😳. Snapped it up right away. My younger son is on a mission to collect all SK‘s hardbacks but I‘m reading it first. I did read many years ago from a paper back.

Got to add my first book to my #BookBingo board! Cujo has been on my radar for AGES, and I felt like a fake King fan not having read such a well-known work of his 😂 Luckily, I loved this one, so my status as a King stan has been safely restored.

Finished two books due to Dewey's Readathon. Harrowing was so-so and Heathens was an awesome entry into the series.

Currently reading Cujo-well, I'll get started on it during my baseball game this afternoon.

Up next is two entries for #Booked2021. I'm hoping to get at least one of these read.

Just finished the book which I never read and so I decided to watch the movie which I had never seen. And I call myself a Stephen King fan. Oh the shame!
Ok film with great performances by Dee Wallace and Danny Pintauro.
No surprise, but the book was better.

King is not my favourite author but I liked Cujo. First part of the book was a little boring for me and it take me a little more time to read. But the second part was really amazing.

I first saw this movie a few years ago late one night while my next door neighbor‘s St. Bernard, Toby, barked in the background. Thankfully Toby‘s a gentle giant who has gotten all his shots and is best buds with my dachshund. I really enjoyed the book and getting chapters from the dog‘s perspective, especially as the rabies began to take hold. I found the rabid mind to be frightening and fascinating. #AuthorAMonth #Scarathlon2020 #TeamHarkness +6

From the opening paragraphs about homicidal cop Frank Dodd to the brutal confrontation, Cujo is one of the more relentless of King's novels that I have read. My one complaint is that there is a subplot involving a marketing mishap & subsequent crisis management that felt unnecessarily long. There are a few pacing issues & I think it would benefit from a little editing. Still, it is one of King's more uncompromising & darkest works.👇

vivastory @Reggie My neighbor has a dog, a large dog with a very unpleasant demeanor. I've always silently referred to it as Cujo. She was walking her dog last night while I was watching the movie & it was during Cujo's first attack. The dog started barking back to the movie 😂 14mo

I am on a roll listening my way through Stephen King‘s novels! Cujo was intense! I love dogs so it kind of broke my heart to have him shown as a good boy to then be turned into this rabid monster that couldn‘t control himself. The narrator was great and I was definitely on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it would all work out (which was quite sad to me). Solid listening experience! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hi! 🙋‍♂️

Finished Cujo this morning. It was a realistic read because it could actually happen and I guess that's what makes it a scary, although having said that, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought i would. I don't dislike it by any stretch of the imagination, I found it tense at parts, it's atmospheric and unpredictable; I'm giving it a 3/5 💫

Wish I could have said more about it, anyway..its a Pick..not a So-So 😬

sprainedbrain This one isn‘t my favorite either. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @sprainedbrain I'm reading one now called Stake by Kevin J. Anderson, very good so far; planning to read another King after that - probably The Eyes of the Dragon. Have you read that one? 2y
sprainedbrain I have not, but I have it. It‘s been a month or so since my last King, so maybe I‘ll join you! 2y

In celebration of Stephen King's newest release, If It Bleeds, i'm ranking/reviewing all ten books of his that I've read.

10.
How you feel about this one dependz on this: King has this habit of bloating his novels and Cujo is the best example of this. It's a novel even he himself can barely remember, thanks to his severe alcholism at the time. Cujo would have made a great short story, but at 400 pages it doesn't know how to sustain itself.

This was hard to read. Poor Cujo started out as a good doggy. I stayed up until 3 this morning to finish it. I did not see that ending coming and I think I‘m still in shock. And that is why Stephen King is my favorite author! 4⭐️ 🐶

Finished up this audiobook during my morning travels. I am utterly convinced that King‘s books work best in audio form. I loved the characterization (enhanced by the narration) and how the story built. There are some ‘80s horror/supernatural elements, too, which worked well. This one was a harrowing experience to listen to at times - how much can these characters go through! But thoroughly enjoyable all the same.

You guys, I loved this book about a rabid dog and now I‘m questioning my brain. 🤣

I listened to the audio and it was well done. The 14 hours flew by and I finished it in 2.5 days. The story has a good ending - which isn‘t always the case with King - and I had a mini dog induced panic session where I sat in my car say “oh no oh no oh no” in the driveway while I waited to see what happened. 🤣

I‘ve slowly been working my way through Stephen King‘s books, reading/rereading them all in order, mixing them in with the other books from my TBR piles. Next up is a reread of Cujo. This is an old favorite that I last read, probably, over fifteen years ago. Getting started on it now.

On the last day of June, Donna Trenton came back from downtown Castle Rock (the locals called it “downstreet,” but at least she hadn't picked up that particular Maine-ism yet), where she had dropped Tad off at his afternoon daycamp & picked up a few groceries at the Agway Market.She was hot and tired, & the sight of Steve Kemp's battered Ford Econoline van with the #gaudy desert murals painted on the sides suddenly turned her furious. #QuotsyOct19

I enjoyed this, honestly more than I thought I would. There were a few parts that didn't really make sense to me, but I can overlook them.

The #audiobook narrator did a decent job capturing the Maine accent, but...man, did I hate some of her voices. The worst was Roger. She made him sound like Kermit the Frog. His wasn't the only one that sounded cartoony, either. It was bad enough that I almost bailed on audio in favor of print. #stephenking

Winston jumped up right as Cujo went in for a kill in my book. Scared the bajeezus out of me, and it scared him, too. 🤣

Honestly, though, I feel more sympathetic for Cujo than scared of him. The poor dear just needed a family who paid attention to his behavior. 💔 Also, is SK sure this isn't a horror story about marriage? The spouses in this book suck.
