Cujo written by Stephen King 2This novel is set in a not so quiet town in Maine called Castle Rock The town shows the lives of both the middle-class the Trentons and the lower-class the Cambers The most intriguing parts of the novel take place 7 miles from town on the Cambers property in a hot Pinto The most important thing about the setting is the secludedness of the Camber house It is important to the plot that there not be any traffic near their house that could aide Donna and Tads escape this adds to the suspense The novel focused on the setting in the beginning to get us acquainted with the surroundings I feel that King focused more on the Camber house and the Pinto than the other surroundings I believe that the setting is not unimportant but I dont think it has to take place in Maine It could have taken place anywhere in America or the world for that fact Its not the state or town that is important its the secludedness of where the Pinto attacks happen 3The major characters in Cujo are the Trentons the Cambers and of course Cujo Although there is not much to say about Cujo because he is a dog we see the changes that take place and the events that forever changed him He is very friendly and a great family dog until he is bitten After that he starts to change The rabbis have infected his head by a brain destroying virus that changes his whole persona and creates a monster out of a normal family dog He is in a sense a death machine hidden beyond the appearance of an ill dog Because of this disease he does things he normally wouldnt do Cujo is the evil force but this evil force is neither from another world nor from beyond the dead This evil force could take over any animal anywhere
