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...

An "okay" book by Stephen King (The Shining is way better.) It has realistic aspects to the parents lives and you end up feeling sad for Cujo, the boy, and his mother, but ultimately, I give it three stars because I don't like the ending. (The movie ends bittersweet while the book is very sad.)

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