The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, best-selling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales.

As someone whose knowledge about Norse Mythology is limited to the Thor movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this was a great introduction into the actual wider mythology and characters that Marvel drew inspiration from. The stories were enjoyable and Neil Gaiman performed them brilliantly.

Re-experience the mystery of Twin Peaks. The Cooper Tapes. The private world of Special Agent Dale Cooper, previously reserved for one woman...Diane, including notes and stories never revealed on television. From the man in the black suit, Twin Peaks in his own words.

There are only a few "tapes" in this which are actually from the TV series and most are original to the audiobook, which I was pleased about as it would have felt unnecessary otherwise. Slightly disappointed that it only goes up to the end of Season 1 in the Twin Peaks timeline. Kyle Maclachlan gives a great performance.

The return of Twin Peaks is one of the most anticipated events in the history of television. The subject of endless speculation, shrouded in mystery, fans will come flocking to see Mark Frost and David Lynch's inimitable vision once again grace the screen. Featuring all the characters we know and love from the first series, as well as a list of high-powered actors in new roles, the show will be endlessly debated, discussed, and dissected.

Although it is rather short compared to A Secret History of Twin Peaks, it provides a good insight as to how Mark Frost interpreted the events of Twin Peaks: The Return and what happened to a lot of the characters in the intervening 25 years since the original series. Sometimes it provides hints rather than definitive answers and in some cases has left me with more questions than before. But overall I really enjoyed this and found that it adds to the mystery of Twin Peaks.

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.

I would highly recommend this for anyone who is a fan of the show. I liked how it would weave in and out of real history and Twin Peaks fictional history and connect them up.
