Reviewer Casper wrote:
I think that this is one of the best books that king has ever written! It is scary, thrilling and exciting all at the same time! King has gotten me to jump a few times, but in this book, i couldn't stop reading and as soon as i was done reading for a while, i wasn't able to sleep. i know that this book will keep you in your seat, so buckle up tight and prepare yourself for a scary ride!

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.
