Our customer reviews

I've been obsessing over Twin Peaks for quite a while now. I started by watching the TV series, which took me quite a bit to get into but could not get enough after some time. After watching the series I saw the movie, which I had bought sometime before for a bargain. I did not enjoy it that much because I kind of was expecting something that would explain some plot holes left by the series. It just didn't do it for me, so I figured I needed to read some books about it. I had wanted to buy this book even when I was only in the beginning of the series and when I was finishing them I bought it. In the meanwhile I also read The Autobiography Of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes because I just needed to know more. Now to the book. It is what it says it is. It's a (fictional) diary of a young girl who's going through changes and is discovering the world and her place in life. But she has evil around her all the time and her life starts going downhill pretty quickly. She gets into sex, lots of drugs and loses all control of herself. It is great for us, fans of Twin Peaks, to know more about Laura Palmer and her life before the events in the series. Since the whole story revolves around her but we never know nothing about her other than what people say and discover about her, I think this book was essential to give us some perspective of Laura's life through her own eyes. I had a great time reading it although it made me cringe in some moments. Sometimes it almost seemed that they were just putting some characters out there and talking about them so we could think "yeah, I know this guy from the series, yeah, this really happened there". Other than that, it was really fun and gave me some more information to understand everything Twin Peaks is more
