get lost

  • About the author EB

The creators of Lost have set up a site that lists all of the books related to the show’s universe, whether they’ve been mentioned in dialogue, shown in scenes, or are just a part of the Lost mythos. Viewers/readers can check out the books and then discuss them on the show’s message boards. Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse don’t promise that any of these books offer clues, but hope that people will “pickup any of them and experience the richness of storytelling, character, and theme, and then allow your imagination to connect all that back into our show.”

The books include Aldous Huxley’s The Island, available from Harper Perennial, as well as a wide range of others including Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret? by Judy Blume (though they spell her name Bloom. Sacrilege!!!!) Just another reason why tv is awesome—it’s getting people to read!
