5 posts | 15 read | 18 to read
Bestselling author Peter Straub's Koko is a gripping psychological thriller in which horror and paranoia are indistinguishable from reality.Koko. Only four men knew what it meant. Now they must stop it. They were Vietnam vets-a doctor, a lawyer, a working stiff, and a writer. Very different from each other, they are nonetheless linked by a shared history and a single shattering secret. Now, they have been reunited and are about to embark on a quest that will take from Washington, D.C., to the graveyards and fleshpots of the Far East to the human jungle of New York, hunting someone from the past who has risen from the darkness to kill and kill and kill.

AmyG I remember really enjoying this book. I read it when it first came out. (edited) 4y
drokka I've had this book since it was first released and despite having tried to read it every couple of years or so, I have not been able to get past the first 50 pages or so. 4y
Bookzombie I didn‘t know this was a trilogy. I have an old copy that‘s been on my shelf for years. 4y

I was so excited when this book came out in the 80s. I couldn't finish it then, and haven't been able to finish it the other half dozen times I've tried since. I don't know why, but I just can't seem to get past page 43. #DNF #StephenKing17

I've always finished King's books, but it was a close run thing with Tommyknockers 😜

Josie Oh I've never even read of this one! 5y
DGRachel I loved Koko! 5y

Edge of your seat thriller and it is a trilogy. Will be picking up the next in the series.
