PDF READ The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer


Rt breaking and disturbing I kept thinking that poor girl wishing I could somehow help herThe writing was really clever and hit the tone of a oung teenage girl switching between ordinary girl stuff to horrifying feelings that no girl or boy should go through And all within a few lines Just take a look at the picture below Throughout Twin Peaks Laura Palmer is a mystery to us The perfect straight A student whose double life is revealed to us in glimpses It was fascinating finally getting her side of the story but horrifying to see how her life was ruined by people she should have been able to trust It was like a darkness growing inside her slowly eating her from the inside manipulating her making her feel shameful dirty and isolated She s a oung girl whose life is stolen from her long before she s killed I am trapped inside a part of me I hate A hard masculine part of myself that has surfaced to fight after small memories and scars come out of me with a suddenness that is sobering as well as horrifying and I fight to save the Laura I wish I could be again The one everyone thinks is still around Me in a sundress hair in the wind and a smile engraved into my cheeks by the sharp fear that a man may visit me at any moment this evening and try to kill meAnd BOB or what he represents was just as scary in Laura s diary as in the series Now we get the perspective of one who s actually dealing with BOB first hand someone whose life and mind is ruined by himit Laura s conversations with BOB and her attempts to get him out of her head were one of the most horrifying things I ve ever read I ve given the book 4 solid stars because I think it s perfect within its genre So many things could have gone wrong but never did The book did the TV series justice but still stood strong as a work on its own Twin Peaks experts have pointed out some inconsistencies in the book but I didn t notice any but then again I ve only seen the entire series one time so I guess I can t be classified as a real fan The only thing that bothered me was that it seemed a bit rushed towards the end that too many characters were introduced at once and that things happened a bit too fast compared to how it started And that s what keeps it from being a 5 star read I just discovered another Twin Peaks spin off The Autobiography Of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper My Life My Tapes I HAVE to check this one out I ve got a bit of a crush on Dale Cooper For reviews please visit my blog The Bookworm s Closet been meaning to read this for about twenty years and found it sitting by the register and found it sitting by the register my favorite used bookstore for 2 bucks the other day seemed like a sign it s actually a pretty good read totally convincing as a oung girl s diary pretty disturbing at times with a lot of really memorable scenes and definitely took me right back to twin peaks and all the time i spent watching and thinking about the show as it went on however it seemed to unravel a bit got to a point where it definitely seemed they were just throwing in references to other people in town like they were checking names off a list gotta hit this mention that check check check check and of course the story doesn t really work on its own it just kind of fades away and ends still though an interesting read i m glad i finally got around to it probably be getting out the gold box again soonB ewareO fB ob Oh Jennifer LynchIt bears repeating Oh Jennifer Lynch The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer is at turns wonderful and hilarious As a hardcore Twin Peaks nerd of course I love it The book tells us what the series could only ever imply that Laura was not just a rape survivor er former survivor but a girl who had been consistenly abused since childhoodObviously if ou haven t seen Twin Peaks don t read onThis is an utterly bizarre book as befits the life of a girl from this peculiar town At times we get insight into the heartbreaking downward spiral of Laura Palmer and the terror of her existence not to mention the most wonderful moments which are those peaks into the mundanity that comes from being an old hand at this lifestyle Sometimes she just genuinely is bored with these men and these drugs and reverts to a robotic childlike stateThe other side of this book is one of purple prose and needlessly erotic encounters between Laura and seemingly every member of the town coughBlackiecough The book also does nothing to dispel the series biggest uestion how in the name of BOB did Laura manage to become homecoming ueen tutor residents in English serve meals to the elderly mentor a mentally handicapped man and attend eight hours of School A Day Even As a day even as juggled two serious boyfriends a half dozen extra men run cocaine and still have time to jet off to far flung parts of the state for threesomes with Teresa BanksI love this book both because and in spite of the flaws in Lynch s writing style After all David Lynch is nothing if not a melodramatist he just submerges this below layers of unsettling suburban paranoia and tracking shots of phone cords But would I recommend this to anyone who doesn t know the series and like it Absolutely not. Nt clues to the identity of her killer And for the inhabitants of Twin Peaks it begins a mystery that will reach out to obsess them Long with me while sick on the couch his feverish mind haunted by visions of BOB but Twin Peaks has never ceased hau Just finished the audio version Utterly amazingSo when Sheryl Lee was going to be at the Twin Peaks festival I bought another copy of this book to have her sign She wasn t there but after watching Fire walk with me again on Sunday in the cinema I decided to read the novel again I started esterday afternoon took a break for a play and then finished it last night I think it s still one of the saddest books of an abused child growing up Laura spends so much of her time thinking that she s bad and deserves what happens to her That people won t like her or understand her if they knew what she was really like In the book Jennifer lets out all her secrets everything that she does the prostitution the drugs and الإيضاح لمتن ايساغوجي في المنطق you findourself loving her for her vulnerability and confusion It s much easier to feel sympathy for the messed up Laura than it is t Obviously not for Twin Peaks non fans Ms Lynch isn t the most lucid writer no shit she s a Lynch but WHOOOO CARES The teenie bop pathos weirdo sex and hints of a complicated spirituality are a bit trashy and all magic And while the mystery of woman child Laura Palmer was a focal point of the show having Laura speak on Laura was satisfying I loved loved loved that Lynch gave us Laura s realization that the people in her life project their shit onto her and that she both gets off on this fact and hates it far self awareness than most tragic teen darlings seem allowed I wish that this book was a bit developed maybe featuring a bit Audrey Horne whom I helplessly love but I know I m going to read this multiple times So my friend Rusty insisted that I read this after I watched Twin Peaks and admitted to him my temporary obsession with it Rusty s the biggest Twin Peaks fan I know so I thought he d surely have a suggestion for a book or series I could love as much as Twin Peaks I had no idea that this book existed so I immediately downloaded it to my Kindle on his suggestion and put off watching the preuel movie to the series because he swore that I had to read this firstI d been trying to figure out what made me enjoy Twin Peaks so much and I think it s this1 As many uirky characters as psychotic characters and straight characters2 Memorable catch phrases and objects the owls are not what they seem coffee doughnuts cherry pie3 Mystery the unknown dreams and a 6th sense4 Great music rarely relevant in a book5 Good looking actors and actresses that were mainly perfectly cast only relevant if a book becomes a movieI think that above all I enjoyed the characters in the television series but this book didn t hold up to the series at all It was written by David Lynch s daughter to fill in the gaps about the secret life of Laura Palmer And I suppose that it does that but it really doesn t have any of what made the television series a cult classic All the characters in the book are fairly loathsome There weren t any uirky items or memorable catch phrases And The mysterious weren t any uirky items or memorable catch phrases And The mysterious simply sinister and evil I suppose that if Riders of the Sea you getour kicks reading about a 15 Jewish Women Speak About Jewish Matters year old orgy having coke addict who is haunted by an evil spirit then this book is forou Personally I didn t find a shred of interest in it and only held out to continue reading it because I thought there might be a secret to the series revealed within And if that s Friends Forever: Everything Changes (Friends Forever) your hope don t bother There s really nothing new here Not recommended for the under 10 crowd Ahem mother Yes I watched Twin Peaks as a child I also bought the book and had the t shirt And I m pretty sure I was the only fifth grader wearing a You are a stranger here but once shirt displaying the infamous Welcome to Twin Peaks population 51201 sign Was Lynch avant garde in those lonely pre teenears I would say so It s funny that not even any of the teachers confronted me about it either But that probably says about our pool of public school teachers Did it prime me for a few The TV Writer's Workbook: A Creative Approach To Television Scripts years of reading trashy but with some educational merit trade paperbacks by Dean Koontz or the Clan of the Cave Bear series until Auel s endless descriptivism bored my tenear old brain enough to put childish things away Perhaps But on the other hand without Twin Peaks my delicate childhood mind wouldn t have been forever addled by the artistry of one David Lynch whose dark comedy helped shape my psyche ONLY TWO MORE HOURS GUYSTWELVE HOURS UNTIL NEW TWIN PEAKSES My life is whatever the other person in the room wants it to be Laura Palmer I would recommend this book to Fans of Twin Peaks and or people interested in troubled teenage girls the subconscious and horrorThe Beginning Dear Diary My Name Is Diary My name is Palmer and as of just three short minutes ago I

Ed dreams in a secret diary rom the time she was twelve Writing in the Dust: After September 11 years olduntil the day she was murderedThis is that diary It contains importa. Read a book that was turned into a TV show or really based on a TV show in this case Tomato TomahtoPRE REVIEWSo I went to work today after the crappiest crappiest dayesterday and one of the waitresses runs up to me with this book and this book and told me she got drunk a few weeks ago and drunkenly ordered them for me because she knew I wanted them so bad There are still good people on this planet And it totally made my night I cried Seriously This gift made me cry At work People actually mistook me for a girl A girl with a heart Then I told somebody to go fuck off And I was back And the universe was right again We promise that something is forever when it is really only as long as it takes for us to tire of it I m really upset that I can t give this book than 3 stars Because I just can t Can t do it As much as I adore or used to adore Laura Palmer This book just doesn t do anything for my love of this show and this world And I needed to let this book sit and stew in my head before rating or reviewing it because I don t want this book to ruin the show s magic particularly since it s coming back next Engine Performance Diagnostics year HAPPY DANCEFor most ofou who know me or at the least have read my profile or Once Is Never Enough (Real Men Like It Hard, you know looked at my avatar on hereou will know that I absolutely adore EVERYTHING associated with the sheer brilliance that is Twin Peaks It is my favorite show ever and nothing else has even remotely come close to it not even my beloved Walking Dead Sorry Reedusnothing personal The characters of Twin Peaks are as real to me as people who actually exist My alias is Audrey Horne for crying out loud Seriously Siri knows me as AudreyBut this bookit justdoesn twork It lacks the world building that the show renders effortlessly And it lacks the complexity and the macabre threads that tie that show together In a nutshell what it lacks is David LynchI love what it tries to do To give a voice to a character whose voice we never really got to hear on the show I loved Laura Palmer I loved the complexity of her life the layers and layers of mystery and glamour and foolery that came out as the investigation into her death unraveled Laura s secret diary was a clutch on the show and I dunno reading it just kinda took all that complexity and mystery and stigma away It didn t make me sympathize with Laura It made me dislike LauraSometimes what makes something wonderful and brilliant is the not knowing the sense of mystery and drama and intrigue of not knowing totally what s going on And that is why the show worked so well This book just revealed too much of Laura and I hated her voice She was whiny and pretentious and awful and treated the people Laura and I hated her voice She was whiny and pretentious and awful and treated the people her horribly But there was still this sense of feel sorry for me that I hated It made me thankful for what I knew would be Laura s end I much preferred the film Fire Walk With Me which followed Laura in her last weeks before her death The macabre stylings of David Lynch made that film stand out from this book which was confusing and disjointed and tooordinaryto fit into the town of Twin Peaks And the easter eggs about characters I loved and followed were too obvious and didn t really jive with the STORY EXCEPT FOR ONE TIME IN Except for one time in beginning when Laura is talking about her encounter with Margaret The Log LadyAnything with the Log Lady is good juicy informationI guess there is such as thing as be careful what Erebus you wish for causeou might just get it Because I wanted this book so bad and now that I ve read it I wish I d just let my imagination do the trickImagination That is what is lacking here Way too much telling and not enough left up to RTA - CIP B702.6 - Renault Clio III, phase 1 de 09/05 a 03/08 your interpretation I could have conversation after conversation after conversation lasting hours and days and months andears about the TV show because there are just so many stones to turn over and investigate Plus there was a little too much crossover with Fire Walk with Me and I preferred the way the movie did it To put it bluntly Jennifer Lynch just isn t her father She does not have his mind or imagination or wacky crazy sense of world building which was needed here Much needed And though the whole thing wasn t entirely bad it did have some nice bits though the whole thing wasn t entirely bad it did have some nice bits writing here and there and nice insights into the world also here and there it was of a disappointment than anythingSo I guess I m glad I read it because it is in the Twin Peaks world but I m not chomping at the bit to read it again Watch the much better film instead Plus the film has LilAnd the man himselfAnd a much better and likable Laura Palmer25 stars rounded up because Twin Peaks Haven t read this in ages but gets 3 stars as a reminder of my first discovery of David Lynch and his television masterpiece circa 7th grade the thrill of watching it for the first time on video cassettes checked out from the local library episode by episode happily surrendering afternoons and weekends to the magic menace and sublime mystery of Twin Peaks I would not finish both seasons until The Tale of Atterberry The Faire Pendant Series years later but the memory of that initial viewing has the potential to imprison me in nostalgia like an insect in amber Myounger brother remembers watching In a town like Twin Peaks no one is innocentLaura Palmer – the sweet faced beauty of Twin Peaks – hid her darkest deeds and twist.
