    "Cujo does take place in Castle Rock, the fictional representation of Maine which Stephen King uses as a location for many of his books. Of all of the books, Cujo definitely is one of the most well known."

    "Skeleton Crew is not nearly the best Stephen King book set in Castle Rock. Not all of Stephen Kings books are equal. Skeleton Crew is an OK movie with a minor twist at the end. The best one is the dead zone! By far the best. It's got everything in it and is a classic Stephen movie."

    "Four Past Midnight: The Sun Dog is like many of Stephen King's novels where the setting is his hometown of Castle Rock. This book however is the best of them. The book is spooky and really keeps you in high suspense until the very end. I don't recommend that you read it while you are all alone."
