    One thought on “Welcome to Twin Peaks: An Access Guide to the Town”

    1. Following Dale Cooper's advice, I decided to give myself a present every day, once a day. I didn't plan it, I didn't wait for it. I just let it happen, and read this.

    2. Chock full of interesting canonical knowledge and revelations. Surprisingly informative, and lays all the foundations for "The Secret History of Twin Peaks". If you enjoy that you should definitely read this and if you haven't read that read this first! <3

    3. Maybe not as essential as the diary or dossier, this book will nonetheless be appreciated by true fans. There are just a handful of truly relevant points, but they are worth it. For the most part, the guide captures the quirky side of Twin Peaks rather than the gothic. It's got a bunch of crazy nonsense in it too (menus, list of trees, list of fishing lures), but there are also maps! #SummerOfPeaks

    4. Fantastic! Everything you could want to know when preparing to visit Twin Peaks. It's all there from lodging at the Great Northern Hotel, to coffee & Pie at the Double R. A must read for any Twin Peaks fan!

    5. Like the other two Twin Peaks tie-in books that came out in the early 1990s (reviewed here and here), this is also supposedly a primary document from the world of the television series – although the authors don’t take their brief too seriously and the work frequently tips into pastiche. The eccentricities of the TV show did not go so far as to have a blind taxi-driver, here posing in his driver's seat with his white cane.According to a notice printed at the start of book (following an intro [...]

    6. A really fun fourth-wall breaking tourist guide to the TP universe, the Twin Peaks Guide takes you on a tour of the city’s sights and sounds as if you picked up the book at the airport and planned on making the journey to the little hamlet. Chock full of insights into the universe, the characters, the restaurants, sights, foliage, wildlife, history, and industry of the area, this guidebook presents everything that the show doesn’t cover and almost works as a bible to the universe if one were [...]

    7. Its a Travel Guide to Twin Peaks! Brilliant! Okay, it wasn't brilliant, just okay, but the idea is brilliant. Enjoyable, helped tide over the nearly SEVEN year wait for Season II to come out on DVD (at long last!). Actually, Summer - this is yours, isn't it?

    8. This is the perfect companion to THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS. Dense and steeped in town lore, this "travel guide" further extends the narrative of the little town in the woods with all the big mysteries and secrets. In tandem, both books lift the town to almost a character in its own story.

    9. This is kind of promotional schlockbut kind of interesting if you're into the Twin Peaks world. Simply a curiosity.

    10. It is what it is. Just a fun supplement to the show. Shouldn't expect much in the way of story out of it.

    11. Fun and frivolous, a light-hearted "guide" to the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington (too bad it's not a real place).
