Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The perplexing plotlines and bewildering array of characters on the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning television program Lost are analyzed and pieced together in this in-depth exploration. Both devoted fans and new viewers can approach the upcoming season with a solid understanding of events from Seasons 1 and 2 with the insightful commentary, copious episode analysis, and thoroughly detailed sections on the links between seemingly disparate events and each character's back story. Questions such as:
  • How do the characters' pasts intertwine?
  • What do the animals on the island represent?
  • What is the religious, historical, and spiritual significance of the infamous number sequence 4 8 15 16 23 42?
All are addressed as well as the importance of the many literary references on the show. Cast member biographies and never-before-seen photos are also included.

Review:

"If you're a fan of the popular TV show Lost, you can't be without this unofficial guide." California Bookwatch

Synopsis:

The perplexing plotlines and bewildering array of characters on the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning television program "Lost" are analyzed and pieced together in this in-depth exploration.

Synopsis:

The first book in the critically acclaimed, best selling Finding Lost series brings you an analysis of seasons 1 and 2 in one volume. If you're feeling as lost as the castaways on the show, Finding Lost is the crucial companion guide to help you unravel the mysteries of the island. This is the only book that offers an episode-by-episode guide to the first two seasons of Lost, following the developments of the characters, the plots, and the various connections fans must make to keep up. Finding Lost includes:

• An in-depth look at every episode, with highlights, music, and nitpicks outlined at the end of each one

• Chapters on the real John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau (and how they compare to the fictional ones), fan conspiracy theories, the blast door map, the Dharma symbol, and B.F. Skinner

• Sidebars chronicling fun trivia such as Sawyer's nicknames for people; what Hurley's numbers could mean; Vincent's mysterious appearances and disappearances; the redemption of the characters

• Bios for all of the major actors on the show

• Summaries of the shows literary references, including Lord of the Flies, The Third Policeman, Our Mutual Friend, Watership Down, and many more

• Photos of the filming locations in Hawaii, including a detailed map of how to conduct your own tour when in Oahu

Full of exclusive photos and enough background to put you leagues ahead of other viewers, this book will finally help you "find" Lost.
