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.

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.
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.
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!
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.
Outstanding brilliant absolutely enjoyable listen. Have been a twin peaks fan since 1990 and this has totally wetted my appetite for season 3 airing 2017. This is a must for any fellow peaks fans like myself out there. only if audible would bring to life "secrets diary" and "my life my tapes" could I be happier
I think I would like to buy the actual book. Not that I didn't enjoy it but a lot of references to dates etc make the Audiobook monotone in nature. I can not criticise the depth of the 'back story', however I feel alienated from the original story and feel that it veers more towards the x files than Twin Peaks. (Not entirely a bad thing as Twin Peaks eaves influenced the X Files!). There are however, many relevant and insightful stories that die hard Twin Peaks fans will surely appreciate.
I enjoyed the Indian stories.
Cooper and Jacobi.
I love the Native Indian back stories. Also Big Eds story was very touching.
An in depth back story. Maybe a bit too in depth, depending on your taste. However, the parts relating to the characters we all know are thoroughly engaging. I will read it again near the time of the new series and it has awakened in me a new enthusiasm for the Twin Peaks franchise!
"Aweful sound quality"
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
