Cujo

Outside a peaceful town in central Maine, a monster is waiting. Cujo is a two-hundred-pound Saint Bernard, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. One day Cujo chases a rabbit into a bolt-hole - a cave inhabited by sick bats. What happens to Cujo, how he becomes a horrifying vortex inexorably drawing in all the people around him makes for one of the most heart-stopping novels Stephen King has written...

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.

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 Award...and (two!) movies. All I ever seemed to do when I was drunk was trash the house....and 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

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.

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 de Tad?

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 να πω ότι δεν έχω διαβάσει πολλά βιβλία του King. Ακόμα κι έτσι όμως, δεν θα έλεγα πως το Cujo είναι ένα αντιπροσωπευτικό βιβλίο του. (Αλήθεια, μετά από «Το Κοράκι» τι καλύτερο μπορεί να περιμένει κανείς?)

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

Cujo...Cujo... 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 rab

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
