Description

The third installment in the critically acclaimed, best selling Finding Lost series.

"The Finding Lost series is quite simply the best resource for fans. Not only is the information concise and complete, Nikki Stafford’s commentary is insightful, relevant, and entertaining. No matter how well you know the show, Stafford’s analysis of the themes and symbolism of Lost will renew your desire to go back and watch over and over again." “Jon "DocArzt" Lachonis

Throughout the first three seasons of Lost, we saw the Lostaways trying to get rescued, adapting to the island, and then dealing with the "natives" of the island, the Others. But the jaw-dropping fourth season was the turning point in the series, giving fans a glimpse of the future through flashforwards of those who made it off the island. While this season provided answers to earlier mysteries, it also raised new questions and muddled viewers' brains with time-traveling bunnies. This book helps put those pieces back into a context that begins to make sense again. Finding Lost is the only Lost guide that analyzes the show episode by episode, and includes:

” An in-depth look at every episode of season 4, with highlights, little-known facts, and nitpicks

” Chapters on time travel, the popular time loop theory, philosopher Jeremy Bentham, the online game Find815, and the Lost mobisodes

” Sidebars chronicling fun trivia such as Sawyer's nicknames, the meaning of Abaddon's name, favorite online Lost parodies, and many more

” Bios of the new actors on the show

” Analyses of the show's literary references, including Slaughterhouse-Five, The Tempest, VALIS, The Invention of Morel, and the Mystery Tales comic

” Photos of the filming locations in Hawaii

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

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


"Nikki Stafford knows TV, and she knows TV fans...Stafford has succeeded in creating books for [Lost fans], a crowd that could arguably be called the most difficult to please."  “Jon Lachonis, BuddyTV.com


"The best part about Finding Lost: The Unofficial Guide is that Nikki Stafford brings the symbolism, themes, and mythology to the forefront, so that casual viewers and devoted fans have a better understanding of what is happening in each episode. When reading many of her points, I would think, 'Yes, of course, I knew that somewhere in my brain, but now Nikki has pointed it out so that I can think about it and come to my own conclusions.'"  “About.com
