Title: The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer
Author: Jennifer Lynch
Genre: Fiction
Rating: 3/5
# pages: 187
Date read: July, 2017

THE SECRET DIARY OF LAURA PALMER chronicles Laura's life from age 12 to her death at 17, and is filled with secrets, character references, and even clues to the identity of her eventual killer. Laura's diary makes compelling reading as she turns from a naive freshman having her first kiss to a "bad girl" experimenting with drugs, sex and the occult.

Definitely not a book to read if you haven't either seen Twin Peaks quite recently, or remember it clearly. Otherwise the book will a) make little to no sense and b) spoil parts of Twin Peaks for you.

I'm not a huge fan of Twin Peaks, but it intrigues me - and as I'd somehow gotten my hands on this book AGES ago (years before I even saw TP for the first time... don't ask me why), I figured I might as well get around to reading it.

I'm glad I did. It gave me a very different insight into Laura Palmer, and while it didn't actually answer any of the questions I had, it provided me with a more nuanced picture of some of the characters.

Laura really didn't sound her age for most of the diary though. It became less obvious as she got older, but her "voice" didn't change between her being 12 at the start and 17 at the end.
