    "This is one of the best Stephen King novels bar none. I have read this and been spooked after reading it. It is a good commentary of good vs evil and is classic Stephen King. The novel is long be prepared but it is worth the read. The one thing that is so realistic is the plague that kills most of the population. It is quite realistic."

    "This author brings the fictional events to the real things. Some of his character voices for the teens feel created just for the sole purpose of clearly distinguishing them.This book is a good conversation and communication, good imaginative writing"

    "Of all the Stephen King books this one is my favorite. It has a complex story with just enough action to keep your attention. The drama is great and unlike most of his books the ending is pretty good too."

    "Stephen King is just so good. His early works are just so chilling and thought provoking. I originally watched Carrie on VHS when I was younger, which motivated me to read the novel. I can safely say that this is one of his best novels ever. You are doing yourself a big disservice if you have not read Carrie. I will not spoil anything here, but the plot is just too crazy to pass up!"

    "I am familiar with Stephen King novels, but not all of them. This website focused on his book, Cujo, and offered it for sale in various formats - paperback, hardcover, kindle, audible, and a couple of others. It provided a short synopsis and also presented the titles of other Stephen King novels. I liked seeing the other books as recommendations of what other books of his I might enjoy."

    "This saga is actually a series of 8 novels - their scope alone could make them the best Stephen King novels. However, the elements of dark fantasy and horror are so well written that I would also rank them among the best novels of all time, as well. They are gripping from beginning to end and people of all sorts should enjoy them. "

    "Stephen King is widely regarded as one of the greatest horror writers of our modern time. This particular novel is one of his works. This novel is one of his least popular ones, but anyone who wants to read his Works should include this as part of the list. This is not necessarily one of his best words, but should be included for anyone who wants to read all of Stephen King's works."
