Summary

The crucial sequel to the New York Times best-selling The Secret History of Twin Peaks, this audiobook bridges the 25-year gap and takes you deeper into the mysteries raised by the new series.

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.

While The Secret History of Twin Peaks served to expand the mysteries of the town and place the unexplained phenomena that unfolded there into a vastly layered, wide-ranging history, Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier tells us what happened to key characters in the 25 years in between the events of the second series and the third, offering details and insights fans will be clamouring for. The audiobook also adds context and commentary to the strange and cosmic happenings of the new series. For fans around the world begging for more, Mark Frost's final take laid out in this novel will be required listening.

Short but enjoyable

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.

Solid end to an ephemeral and surreal mystery soap

Great audio book, convincing and nuanced performance and (almost) a satisfying answer to many hanging threads. At the end of se3 of Twin Peaks, I was left with as many (if not more) questions than when I had begun. However, following the files of agent Tammy Preston, some theories pan out and we (through Agent TP) can begin to make some sense of the plot and secrets behind an arthouse surrealist show that once captured the imagination of the world in the 90s, and its extremely non linear and often intentionally opaque third season.

short and sweet

Well worth an audible credit, and fills a lot of gaps from the show's ending.

Optional extra

An optional side-road in the Twin Peaks canon, this gives a little more detail about key events with a slight elaboration on the spiritual elements. Often dry, boring even, but occasionally intriguing, it was heavy going and felt a lot longer than its meagre run time.

Thank God we get to see another side of TP!

fantastic, really enjoyed Annie Wersching's performance on this and the secret history. It's a shame she didn't play TP on the return! I am just thankful that there are these audio books which really flesh out the character of Tamara Preston, a strong, intelligent and deep character rather then simply a bit of skirt as she was portrayed in the return.

Superbly written, but frustratingly curt

With the entire dossier clocking in at around two hours worth of listening time, this return to Twin Peaks is as frustratingly selective as its televised counterpart. imagine being given the most decadent box of chocolates, only to find half of them are missing. I suppose it was foolhardy of me to expect a sense of narrative completion from an author who has for so long chosen to dwell in realms of suspenseful intrigue. Suffice is it to say that I enjoyed what there was, but those extant parts are only the shadow cast by a much larger presence.

A good companion, however...

Margaret Lanterman, not Coulson! Shame Chrysta Bell didn't narrate for her own character too. B+

Wow Bob Wow

This audiobook makes it clear - we need a fourth season. Although this book answers some questions left unanswered throughout the series, there is still a myriad of them around.
