Four-year-old Tad Trenton has been having night terrors. Each night, a horrifying beast with glowing red eyes growls from within his closet that he will have him soon. Though his parents reassure Tad that no monsters can get him, they cannot explain why the closet door is found unlatched each morning. Nor can they keep their own adult fears, from a business crisis to infidelity, from threatening to tear their happy home apart ...… (més)

Classic King.

Just a bit nit picky here - but would Roger & Vic really share a hotel room after flying first class? ( )

This is honestly one of King's best works (I still like Carrie better, but this is great!)

The pacing is perfect; it builds the tension, anxiety, and dread flawlessly.

As usual, King waxes prolix in his characterization, but not to the point of gross saturation (I'm looking at you It and The Stand ( )

Jesus. This book. Not horror all the way through, not like I anticipated from a Stephen King novel, but disturbing nonetheless. I had never seen the movie so I only knew there was a bad dog and trapped people in a car. I wasn't prepared though for this. It's that of course, and so much more. It's upsetting and disturbing and although it's not fast paced, the slow and steady build of the story make it terrifying. When Donna and her son Tad drive out to a local mechanics place to get their car fixed they have no idea what horror awaits for them. Donna's husband is in Boston for business for a few weeks and the mechanics family has left for a week. No one knows where Donna is and soon they are trapped by a rabid dog with no hope in sight. No one is going to come to save them. It's the hottest week in the year - how will they survive? This is a hard read for animal lovers. A heartbreaking read. The ending was..... awful. Cujo is about more than just a rabid dog - it's about rabid people - people who are at their worst, people who make bad decisions, and those decisions have consequences. Disturbing, but well written. I don't know if I can stomach watching the movie though. ( )

Wow.

Wow, wow, wow.

I haven't actually gone back and read this since the Saturday after it was first published. That's when I went down to the local bookstore, bought it, dragged it home and devoured it in a single sitting.

It appears I may have gulped a bit too fast on this one the last time. Or maybe it's because I'm a parent now, and a dog owner. Maybe that long-promised, often-scoffed-at maturity has somehow settled into these bones. All I can say is, this time, this book knocked the shit out of me.

In fact, I have only one complaint. I actually think I might have preferred a straight thriller, with no supernatural elements at all. I found they actually tended to muddy the waters a bit.

But I loved the characters, all of them. They were spot on, from children torn between their mom and dad, wives that thought their husbands were all bad, but learned they had forgotten some of the good, mothers that realized that time was slipping by too fast, too fast.

And Cujo. Oh god, how I felt for that damn dog.

This story can be taken as all surface, just a fast-paced thriller about a mom, a boy, and a dog.

Or it can go so much deeper. Stephen King as Cujo, basically a good dog who got caught up in a disease (rabies for substance abuse) that just left him more befuddled and confused and not knowing who to trust, lashing out and killing the ones he loved. Donna and Vic Trenton's marriage is King's talent. When the trust is broken, will it be able to survive? And so on and so on.

This, like [b:The Long Walk|9014|The Long Walk|Stephen King|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1309212400s/9014.jpg|522169], is one of those books that I read and enjoyed, but really wasn't either smart enough or receptive enough to accept all their hidden gifts the first time around.

This one just shot up the list of favourite King books. ( )

Simply noted as a book I remember reading, sometime back in the 1980s or 1990s. A simple enough story in Stephen King's extensive output, about average though easily remembered among the half dozen or so of his I've read in the past. The first book of his I read was The Stand which I thought allegorically interesting, but my interest waned with subsequent books.

He hit all the right buttons with the broader reading audience, from extramarital hanky-panky to childhood fears in a contemporary setting. Personally, I had more empathy for the Saint Bernard that contracted rabies. ( )

About suffering they were never wrong,
The Old Masters: how well they understood
Its human position; how it takes place
While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along...

—W.H. AUDEN, "Musée des Beaux Arts"
Old Blue died and he died so hard
He shook the ground in my back yard.
I dug his grave with a silver spade
And I lowered him down with a golden chain.
Every link you know I did call his name,
I called, "Here, Blue, you good dog, you."

—FOLK SONG
"Nope, nothing wrong here."
—THE SHARP CEREAL PROFESSOR

This book is for my brother, David, who held my hand crossing West Broad Street, and who taught me how to make skyhooks out of old coathangers. The trick was so damned good I just never stopped.

I love you, David.
