"Getting "Lost": Survival, Baggage and Starting Over in J.J. Abrams' "Lost""
Reading history and reviews
Finished in 2007At the start of the year I watched all of "Lost" seasons one and two on DVD in the space of about 6 weeks. I was hooked! I wish I could watch season 3 but I don't want to pay for cable, so I'll have to wait. So in the meantime, there is this book which is a collection of musings on different aspects of the show.
I guess it was okay. I felt that a lot of the pieces were rather short, and I wonder if they were originally published on the web. I know that what seems long when you read it on a computer screen can seem short when it's printed out. Also since the book was put together while season two was still airing, the writings don't take account of later occurances. On the other hand: the introduction is really good, and the "who's who in Lost" piece made me aware of a lot of connections that I hadn't noticed when I watched the shows. I also particularly enjoyed "The Lost Bookclub" and may well look to read The Third Policeman sometime in the near future.
