King is unbeatable * Mirror *
Reseña del editor
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 . . .Ver Descripción del producto

The novel took a long time to build up. However, the writing style helped keep it from getting boring. There was always a little snippet of life outside the main plot given that not a lot actually happens in this book. Loved all the little details. Masterful storytelling. I was engrossed even though the pacing felt slow in the first half. Love the mix of the supernatural even though it was small, it added a layer of connectedness and contributed to tension making some scenes terrifying, that and the mix of characters and points of view, both good and bad, and all different shades in between were ingredients to a wonderful narrative.
Great complex characters, including Cujo, whom left me with conflicting emotions. His story is so bittersweet. As a dog lover, I did find it difficult to see the corruption of such a beautiful and caring canine from something out of his control. Whether intentional or not, the symbolism of rabies, alcoholism, violence, and the evil entity infect and corrupt completely; and it takes sacrifice and a lot of guts and determination to battle such elusive foes.
With lots of gore towards the end, adding to the desperation and devastation it drove home the shock at the end which I did not see coming.
There was one thing that was not tied up though, and even missed in the final comments, and I thought King dropped a prime opportunity to leave us with a shiver. All in all a turbulent horror story about the corruption of innocence and inevitability of evil (and man). It still stand as a tale today, but certain technology (like cell phones and better mechanics) may render the plot a little defunct. Recommended.
King does an eerily, amazing job of creating a fearsome creature that becomes the standard label for all aggressive, and gruesome animals to follow. I had a hard time putting the book down simply because I wanted to see what would happen next, who would be the next victim and if they would live through the encounter with the rabid beast. Complete page turner, that will have the reader entirely engrossed. I definitely have no intentions of seeing the movie, the book was horrid enough.
A highly recommended read (if you haven't already read it) that will have to praying that Cujo never finds you.
