i know that many people like this novel. i don't. i find it boring and did not peak my interest at all.
This book broke my heart, having had 2 St. Bernards as a child. I think the thing I found most intriguing about the book was that King told parts of the story from the dog's viewpoint--a unique perspective, to be sure. All in all, a real downer of a story.
Although I love dogs and this is a said book in terms of the dog dying, I loved this book. One of my favorite S.K. books the suspense and horro of the Mom and the kid being stuck in the POS car. Great, just great!

Didn't keep me up at night, BUT, scary enough!
how can you sell so many books when they are barely readable? great movie stock, though!
If this book is really about a rabid dog that traps two people in a car, ITS A DOG, SHOOT IT! It just seems so obvious.
Jack - try reading the book. That's what it's about...on the surface. Contrary to what the lit snobs will tell you, Stephen King's books actually do have considerable subtext.
Not that this is King's best book. He actually said he was so strung out during this period he has no memory of writing it. To me, this makes its considerable quality even more impressive.

Scary, scary book. Read this title early in King's career and had no idea what would come next. I highly recommend this book but don't buy a dog after reading this.
The car scene was a classic, the over all book wasn't his greatest though. Good read.
Oh my goodness, I watched the movie, and IT WAS FREAKY!!!
