One of Stephen King's most enduring classics.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, a monster came to the small town of Castle Rock, Maine... He was not a werewolf, vampire, ghoul, or 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 any more. 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...

Comments about Cujo:
This was not the first book I read by Stephen King, but it was among the first I read. I like this book because the horror in it is human and real. The violence from Cujo to the humans is animal violence, so it's not so scary. Well, it is scary, but in a creepy-fun way.
Don't get trapped with a Cujo outside your car is all I can say.
