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.

    "An unexpected journey"

    25 years after the show ended, I had some certain expectations of what this book might be. I was way off. What's here is so unexpected, it took me several tries to approach it and settle into the story that it wanted to tell, not the story I wanted to hear. Once it clicked – I was all in. Mark Frost's deft interweaving of apocryphal American history, of a surprisingly broad scope, is used to deepen and enlarge the uncanny cosmology of Twin Peaks. Now that the new series is underway, overlooked clues buried in this book are beginning to surface.

    Well worth your time if you enjoy a mystery that won't give itself up without a fight.

    "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!

    "Great for filling the days between episodes of The Return!"

    If you're after some great connective tissue from Mark Frost with some illuminating details concerning characters in The Return, this is an absolute treat. It's also performed by many of the cast. All round, damn good 👍

    "Gets better each time."

    I do not usually bother with reviews but as this is the third time I've completed the Secret History Of Twin Peaks I must say it really does add depth and intrigue into the whole Twin Peaks universe.

    So many bizarre coincidences and occurrences to mull over and consider, going way way back into American history for the most tenuous of possible links, that somehow all lead to that one location 'Twin Peaks'. You can either absorb and enjoy the narrative or get totally confused, nothing is cut and dry and it's down to the individual to interrupt the information.

    "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.

    "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
