Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, not so long ago, a monster came to the small town of Castle Rock, Maine.... He was not a werewolf, a vampire, a ghoul, or an unnameable creature from the enchanted forest or snow wastes; he was only a cop....
Cujo is a huge Saint Bernard dog, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. Then one day Cujo chases a rabbit into a bolt-hole. Except it isn't a rabbit warren anymore. It is a cave inhabited by rabid bats. And Cujo falls sick. Very sick. And the gentle giant who once protected the family becomes a vortex of horror inexorably drawing in all the people around him....

Difficult read

Not the best King, but classic King all the same. I say it's difficult to read not because of the writing or the narration (although the narration leaves something to be desired) but because it's a pretty traumatic story. I finished it in two listens, and while it's probably one of my least favourite King audiobooks it's still pretty damn good.

Lorna Raver was serviceable, she did a great job with her Maine accent (Ayuh!) but the majority of her male voices either sounded like someone who was extremely creepy or just sounded like a monster. Some characters this worked for but for others it was very distracting.

7/10 altogether.

Not one of Stephen King best books

Not one of Stephen King best books. Quite slow in places and one does not really engage with the characters
