Joley Wood has the best insight into the TV program Lost than any other author I've read on the subject so far. With his comparisons in Living Lost: Why We're All Stuck on the Island, it makes sense when Wood compares a situation that has happened in the real world to something that has happened on Lost.

This isn't just a book of episode reviews and cast biographies, but it goes deeper than those things, which are very thoroughly included. Living Lost pulls Lost out of the TV screen and into daily life so that the events in Lost are echoed in the world around us. The reader feels as if we could easily be stranded on the island because the reader not only relates to characters, but to situations, also. For instance, the survivors had no idea that the Others were watching them, and at the same time, in our daily reality, many people had no idea that they were under investigation "...thanks to the Patriot Act of 2001." Mirror-twinning is something that Wood talks about in the book, and there is a lot of that going on during Lost episodes and in life. A death may be followed by a birth. Eko was a poorer criminal, but Jin became a "high class" one, but they are still criminals.

Anyone who loves Lost will enjoy this book and its author's thoughts and the great amount of research he has done.

J. Wood has interesting insights, a wide range of knowledge and a delightful writing style. A wonderful read for people of all ages who love the show and want to see what others think.
