For those of us with time on our hands during the hiatus, there is now an official Lost Book Club. Seriously.
Here is a note from the producers:
Welcome to the Lost Book Club.
Over the first four seasons of LOST we've managed to incorporate more than 40 books into the show. For the first time, we've catalogued a list of books available in audio form that relate in some way to LOST. Some are being read by our characters, such as Sawyer, or are just sitting on shelves in episodes of the show; others connect with various themes of the series.
We hope you'll join our informal Lost Book Club. To paraphrase one of our heroes, Stephen King, to be a writer one must first be a reader. We find ourselves constantly striving for even a small measure of the accomplishment of what all these authors have achieved in their books. Pick up 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.
We can't promise you any of these books will lead you to answers about LOST, but we can promise you'll be enriched for having read them.
Enjoy! And fall through the rabbit hole with us!
All our best,
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse
