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.

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!

Short, Greta, fun

I hope they make more of these, maybe go back and do the tapes from season two and maybe season 3 (2017) depending how the new story plot turns out.

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.

A little disappointed :(

I'm a huge Twin Peaks fan. And you might have to be to enjoy this one. That being said, I felt let down. But I can't give it less than 4 stars, because it's Twin Peaks and Kyle McLachlan. It's not what I expected. I expected a lot more additions to the story and mythology but most of it is clips from the original series. It doesn't shed light on anything or even go through nearly as much of the story as I thought it would. Of course, Kyle McLachlan does a wonderful job. I'd only recommend this to die hard fans who know the series well and are interested in it as a novelty item. Otherwise it's kind of a weird title to buy, and without knowing the series well, you won't really get much out of it.

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

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.

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.

Fantastic, but limited to season 1

Great tapes, great production, adorable delivery. I'm just slightly disappointed that the timeline ends at the beginning of season 1, as I expected to find easter eggs about the events of season 2, or more Cooper content building to the finale. Perhaps a second set of tie in tapes was released?

Definitely worth the purchase, but don't expect any narrative beyond the introduction of The Giant, or anything alluding to new info from the (brilliant) Secret History audiobook released in anticipation of season 3.

Now craving coffee and cherry pie.

Not much new

Don't buy this if you're looking for new information; most of the content is from the series.

A good recap of the first season

This is a good, funny, bite-sized production that encapsulates the first season of Twin Peaks as experienced by Agent Cooper, and relayed to his oft-mentioned-but-never-seen assistant, Diane. Audio from the show is mixed in with new tapes recorded by Kyle MacLachlan. There's not much information here that isn't in the show, and there are no additional insights into the mystery or the characters, but if you want to listen to a fun recap of your favourite moments, and spend a little more time with a beloved character, this will satisfy.

Interesting but not crucial

As a supplement to the show, this is an interesting sidebar. McLachlan is excellent as Special Agent Cooper in what little new content there is, but what there is is not a lot. Audio clips ripped straight from the show interspersed by drips of anecdotal new content, unfortunately ending before season two and adding nothing to the prevailing story aside from a little more atmosphere. Unless you need some Cooper in your life, you can avoid.

Damn Fine Audio Book

This audio book narrated by Kyle McLachlan gives you a deeper understanding of his character, agent Dale Cooper. Some of thr excerpts are directly from Season 1 while others preceed the series. A must read for fans
