Publisher's Summary

Twin Peaks is many things. The haunting cult show about a murdered homecoming queen has influenced television since its debut over the past 25 years. This audiobook by Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost deepens the mythology of the town and its people with original materials, and is sprinkled with subtle hints about the future revival airing on Showtime in 2017.

The Secret History of Twin Peaks enlarges the world of the original series, placing the unexplained phenomena that unfolded there into a vastly layered, wide-ranging history, beginning with the journals of Lewis and Clark and ending with the shocking events that closed the finale.

The perfect way to get in the mood for the upcoming Showtime series.

Full cast of narrators includes Amy Shiels, Annie Wersching, Chris Mulkey, David Patrick Kelly and James Morrison.

    "This Audio Book is not what it appears"

    In the words of Dale Cooper: I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, two cups of good, hot black coffee, or a delightful audio book that will further enrich the world of Twin Peaks for you.

    "Massive disappointment"

    I've been anticipating this book with great excitement but I feel like I've just been "Rick Rolled". I was expecting something written in the same vain as Cooper's autobiography and Laura's diary that bridged the gap between the original and the new series, but what I got was tedious, unrelated waffle hastily tied together at the end to justify using the Twin Peaks brand...and make an easy buck. There is little relevance to the series and the back stories of a few characters was already covered in the series. Just as the book finally begins to get interesting and teases some interesting insights it ends.

    "Wow Bob wow"

    Well ! What a story following a far longer timeline than I anticipated. The historical back story was interesting and relevant and as we grew closer to the time of the series I got more and more excited. I am literally desperate for season 3 now so hurry up 2017!

    "What a history!!!"

    Loved it.
    I was a true Twin Peaks fan back in the 90s and with news of the new series starting 2017 I was excited by the book title.

    I loved the fact that not only does it use historic events with names I have come to know from the town of Twin Peaks but it also builds up the history of characters we know and love and their history to the town and one another beyond what we learnt from the TV show.

    Excellent to also have Agent Cooper feature.

    "Time to fill in the blanks."

    The owls are very much not what they seem. ESSENTIAL listening for any true fan.

    "Interesting character development, but lacking in any real oomph"

    Just a quick review.

    This seems more like an experiment in writing with Twin Peaks tacked on than a fully realised Twin Peaks story. It's clear that the mystery if the lodges is more Lynch's thing than Frost's, so don't expect any explanation of that particularly.
    I also wish more was said about the owl cave ring.
    Nice book to get you in the mood for more episodes, but needed a bit more meat.

    "Not very good"

    I hated the bits about UFOs and conspiracies but the Twin Peaks character history bits were interesting.

    "Interesting but not perfect"

    Not really unabridged. Parts of the book are skipped (although not many) and actors make occasional mistakes while reading the original material. I enjoyed listening to it anyway, while reading the actual book.

    "Aweful sound quality"
    What would have made The Secret History of Twin Peaks better?

    Which such a great cast, you'd expect a better quality. at 64kpbs/22.050kHz, this make the audiobook sounding out from a poor radio broadcast
