Publisher's 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...."

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!

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.

Short and sweet.

A must for Twin Peaks/Frost/Lynch fans. Short but well read. I miss this show more after listening to it.

A fun listen.

While not mandatory for most fans, this is just a good snapshot of Cooper being Cooper, mostly relative to the first season. I don’t think this is for everyone but it’s interesting enough to hold the attention of fans who like the quirkiness of Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Dale Cooper.

very well done production.

I thoroughly enjoyed the behind-the-scenes type of audio logs from Kyle Maclachlan as Agent Dale Cooper. just wish it was longer.

An entertaining recap for fans

MacLachlan's performance is entertaining in this recap of TP season 1. Maybe too pricey though.

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

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.

Great audio diary tape of Agent Dale Cooper

Excellent, but it would've been perfect if it had covered the whole season 1 or also season 2.

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
