did not like it

Let me preface this review by saying that I've always felt that Mark Frost did not get enough credit for Twin Peaks. His contributions to the original show have been unfairly eclipsed by David Lynch’s genius and I think Frost was responsible for more of what we loved about TP than people remember. I loved his novel List of 7 and thoroughly enjoyed The Secret History. Having said that, this book was a complete pile of crap.
It had the narrative flow of a Wikipedia summary of a tv show and the few plot revelations that people are going on about felt like 4th-rate fan fiction. The beauty of Twin Peaks : The Return was in the ambiguity and mystery (something heightened by The Secret History). The Final Dossier coldly and dully removed this beauty but without the satisfying plot payoff that genre fiction generally provides. And the charming book design that made The Secret History so charming was missing. So disappointing.
