Library Journal Review

This companion novel connecting the original Twin Peaks TV show to the new series from Showtime could have been a simple cash grab. Instead, series cowriter Frost has mixed actual history, ufology, crypto-zoology, and other "real" occultism and tied them to characters and events from both series. Starting with Lewis and Clark and leading to the modern era, it tells the tale of weird happenings through the eyes of the town's former newspaper editor, who is also a spy. He goes through history chasing UFOs, otherworldly visitors, and a mysterious green ring. The writing is fun and flows well, telling little stories that hint at a greater whole. The book summarizes relevant series details without overdoing it. Additionally, the images from the print version are included on one of the discs. The book is read by a marvelous full cast including actors from both shows. The only downside is that the actors who originally portrayed the two most prominent characters are now deceased. VERDICT This works as a fun introduction to the series or an engaging and lightly fictionalized look at the history of weird in America. Recommended for fans of either of the series, conspiracies, UFOs, and history.-Tristan M. Boyd, Austin, TX © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
