“It would perhaps not be amiss to point out that he had always tried to be a good dog. He had tried to do all the things his MAN and his WOMAN, and most of all his BOY, had asked or expected of him. He would have died for them, if that had been required.” Stephen King’s Cujo describes the perfect storm: two families with chaotic lives and one enormous dog struck with disease. Find out more by joining the Huntsville Public Library’s Stephen King Online Book Club to discuss Cujo during the month of June. To register, please visit myhuntsvillelibrary.com.
