A family's two-hundred-pound Saint Bernard is transformed by rabies and the insidious guidance of demonic forces into a terrifying monster.

Simon and Schuster
The #1 national bestseller for Stephen King’s rabid fans, Cujo “hits the jugular” (The New York Times) with the story of a friendly Saint Bernard that is bitten by a sick bat. Get ready to meet the most hideous menace ever to savage the flesh and devour the mind.

"Once upon a time, not so long ago, a monster came to the small town of Castle Rock, Maine."

Cujo used to be a big friendly dog, lovable and loyal to his trinity (THE MAN, THE WOMAN, and THE BOY) and everyone around him, and always did his best to not be a BAD DOG. But that all ends on the day this nearly two-hundred-pound Saint Bernard makes the mistake of chasing a rabbit into a hidden underground cave, setting off a tragic chain of events. Now Cujo is no longer himself as he is slowly overcome by a growing sickness, one that consumes his mind even as his once affable thoughts turn uncontrollably and inexorably to hatred and murder. Cujo is about to become the center of a horrifying vortex that will inescapably draw in everyone around him—a relentless reign of terror, fury, and madness from which no one in Castle Rock will truly be safe...

Not a classic Stephen King horror story, but a great read nonetheless. I love how he can capture the state of the human mind, translate it into words, and make the emotions of the characters so relatable. It's definitely a more subtle kind of suspense compared to some of his other famous novels. Great characters, plot, and ending (even though it made me cry).

I seen the movie but heard the book was way better. It is. The ending I was in shock....
I felt bad for the dog and how the family just ignored him from the beginning of his pain.
I liked how the whole " if I did this, than this wouldn't of happened", kind of thing.
Gave it 3 stars...

King has a way of meshing together over 3 different families where their lives all tie together before even meeting each other.
