Summary

Unavailable in any other format - the original blockbuster audio tie-in to the television phenomenon Twin Peaks.

"...Diane, I'm holding in my hand a small box of chocolate bunnies...."

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.

"...Diane, a small town is not unlike a river - lots of hidden currents and eddies, each holding its own secrets. My guess is that I haven't even broken the surface yet.... Oh, one other thing, Diane, never drink coffee that has been anywhere near a fish...."

Nice addition to original series

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.

Twin peaks dale cooper

Loved listening to Agent Cooper talking to Diane, brought back all the memories of watching the show which I might add can't wait for season 3.
If you enjoyed twin peaks then you'll enjoy sitting and listening to our one and only Agent Dale Cooper

Fun

Not a whole lot of new material, mostly just recordings made on screen. But wonderfully presented. Wish it had been longer

It was a joy to return to Twin Peaks.

Enjoying a good strong cup of coffee with Agent Cooper was a joy. I can almost smell that cherry pie!

Diane, you won’t believe this, but I’m actually looking at the Milky Way...

What an incredible companion piece to the original series of Twin Peaks. Kyle Maclachlan does an amazing job at reprising his role of Special Agent Dale Cooper and adds more to the mystery of Laura Palmer’s murder. If you’re a fan, you’ll love this. If you’re watching the series for the first time, steer clear until you’re done! With the first two seasons, at least 😉

Best enjoyed over a slice of cherry pie and a fine cup of coffee!

If you're a big TP fan it's worth a few quid.

Some of these tapes appear in the show, some don't. There's nothing particularly new or revelatory here but Kyle's performance is wonderful, as you'd expect.

Wow!

I simply loved this! The only complaint is that it doesn't cover season 2 too...

Far too short and lacking in story

As a fan of the show and loving the new series I thought I would revisit some original run material having not heard this before. Besides of couple of new Cooper moments that made me chuckle I found the rest added nothing to the show. I was expecting some further insight, added layer of depth or addition to the story....alas no. and before I knew it the end music was rolling and I had to check the chapter list thinking I must have skipped over some chapters maybe.

Two Thumbs Up

You know, this is, excuse me- a DAMN fine audiobook. I've heard I can't tell you how many audio books in my life and this, this is one of the finest.

Available Again!!!

Would you listen to "Diane…": The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper again? Why?

Bought this the second I got in to work today. I had this on audio cassette as a kid and loved it, was so excited to see it's back in print on audible. A must for die hard Twin Peaks fans!

Perfect for the Twin Peaks Addict

I can't praise Kyle MacLachlan's performance enough. It has all the charm of the original TV series. I only wish it were longer.

Still love it!

I actually still have my cassette copy of this from back in the 90's and obviously run into some difficulty listening to it because cassette. So happy to have this on my phone now to listen to whenever I want!!
Such a fun recording!!

Great for fans...

probably not for most. It would have been nice if this had been rereleased as part of the new "Secret History of Twin Peaks" which I recommend above this title.

Alas

If only it were much, much longer. I would’ve loved to hear Cooper’s inner monologue through the end of season two.
