This audio book brought great energy to the story. However, because Frost's brilliant tale is so uniquely structured visually--it doesn't translate well to a stand-alone audio book experience. The printed book itself is a masterfully designed experience--the story is told through a patchwork of newspaper clippings, postcards, government reports, autopsy reports, letters of correspondence, excerpts from novels, and all of this fabulously crafted miscellany is carefully annotated by an FBI agent. This scattering of documents was meant to be experienced and explored visually! The annotations NEED to be visual. I tried listening to the audio book by itself first--the nature of the compiled and annotated dossier did not translate smoothly to an audio book experience. It was easy to loose track of the larger narrative. Something was missing. But the performances of the readers, actors, and author are fabulous and should be heard. I ended up buying the printed copy and read along and studied the visuals in the dossier-format while listening to the audio--it was a phenomenal way to experience it and I highly recommend doing it that way. So for my five-star review I'm taking into account the overall cumulative experience of folding in the printed copy to experience alongside the audio book.

Dives in and manages a vast amount
Amazingly is the fine detail and connection to the esoteric that rivals Foucault's pendulum, while keeping focused on the Twin Peaks story. Quite an accomplishment if not miraculous.
Geniusly leaving on a cliffhanger. Annoying yet necessary :D
