A big friendly dog chases a rabbit down into an underground cave...and the horror begins. Scary because it really could happen, this is a classic horror novel by a great writer in his prime.

As grisly as "Carrie", as ominous as "The Shining", as eeire and absorbing as "The Dead Zone", it throbs with evil and shock.

I really liked this book, another scary book by Stephen King. I saw the movie first, but I'm glad I read the book or I'd have never known Cujo's thoughts as his rabies progressed, frightening!

One of his classics, only King can find a way to make a rabid dog a nightmare for a town.

I don't think that Stephen King can write anything that isn't interesting. That being said, this book is nowhere near his best. It is an interesting book to pass a few hours but it just didn't creep me out like most of his books do. This is the only book that I have ever read by King that didn't have me reduced to a wimpy mess. This book is definitely worth the time invested, just don't make this your introduction to Stephen King if you've not read his work before.

While I know Steven King is a very good writer, his books are usually too intense for my tastes. I read this one, however, and couldn't put it down - but it definitely was intense!! Dog lovers will be uncomfortable with the story ............
