Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the show's leading scholars."  —Newsday


“Nikki Stafford is a godsend to Lost enthusiasts in particular and TV lovers in general."  —Amanda Cuda, Connecticut Post


"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



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



“Nikki Stafford has a gift for writing about television . . . this book is an interesting read and definitely a must for any Lost fan.”  —The Medium Online


“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



"Lost is over, but I know I’ll be thinking about it for years to come. And in those mental trips to The Island, I’ll be taking three things: my Bible, my comic book collection, and all of Nikki’s insightful and comprehensive Finding Lost books.”  —Entertainment Weekly

Her books are informative, well researched, even more well-written, and a lot of fun.
Erin Byrne
Nikki provides an in-depth look at every episode of Season 6 and includes a summary of each of the books referenced in the series.
Jim Drews
The chapter on the series finale is so well written, that it is worth buying the book just to read that section.

If you loved Lost but thought it went out on a bad note (whether it was the finale, the season, the sideways world, etc), reading this book may bring back your appreciation for the show and see its last season in new ways.

Like many people, I felt cheated at the end of Lost when they left so many mysteries unanswered. I still liked the finale, I was OK with the purgatory twist, and I really like how the story ended. But I was still angry that the producers would throw so many mysteries out there, and just ignore them for the most part. I thought that if they just didn't know how to explain them then they were lazy and if they just didn't want to tell us, then I found that very insulting. I still bought the DVD, and like every year, bought Nikki's book.

But this year's edition has restored my faith in Lost for the most part. I'm still annoyed that we still don't know who The Others were or where they came from, and they made up a ridiculous explanation for The Numbers ("Jacob had a thing for numbers"? Really? That's the best the producers could come up with?), but I found that the episode writeups and the 50-page chapter on the finale helped me to stop caring about those mysteries, and appreciate things about the characters, their stories, and the island that I hadn't really thought about before.

Every chapter on an episode will go back through the seasons' stories on that character, for example, for Sawyer, many of his past episodes and island stories are analyzed to give context to his Season 6 episode, and you see a completed arc to their story, on the island as well as in the sideways / purgatory world.

Format: Paperback
The six-season television phenomenon so beloved of the fandom (and dissected endlessly by fans and critics alike) aired its final episode in May 2010. It's legacy remains strong however, and with the recent release of the final season (and the complete series) on DVD and blu-ray, fans old and new will be savoring its pleasures for years to come. Author, blogger and LOST-expert Nikki Stafford has written the definitive guides to each successive season of the show throughout its run and here presents the eagerly anticipated final volume in her successful and popular FINDING LOST series.

All of the elements that fans the world over have enjoyed in her previous books are here to delight: a guide to each episode in detail with highlights, character arcs and 'easter eggs' for the dedicated fan, analysis of the overarching themes of the show including discussion of its mythology and links to world religions, insight towards the cultural impact of the series and in turn, how fan response shaped the evolution of the show itself, and in-depth examination of literature, scientists and philosophers whose influence on show-runners and writers revealed itself in character names, plot development, Island backstory and the ultimate meaning of the show as unveiled during its final season and climactic final episode.

While she is an unapologetically passionate fan of the series, Stafford is no mere sycophant; she also points out nitpicks in each episode, enumerates mistakes/continuity errors, takes issue with unanswered questions and grapples with the controversy swirling around the conclusion to a show whose confounding mysteries and narrative choices during its six-season run ramped up expectations for ultimate resolution to stratospheric proportions.

Format: Paperback
My season 6 guide arrived in the mail a few days ago, and I was over the moon with excitement, and so ready to start my rewatch of Season 6, with a fabulous guide by my side.

I have all 5 of Nikki Stafford's fantastic Finding LOST books. They are a great companion to what is one of the most brilliant, and complex, shows ever made for television. Her books are informative, well researched, even more well-written, and a lot of fun. This one is the best yet! LOST may be over, but fans old and new, are still talking about it, and I have a feeling we will be for years to come. With the help of Nikki's guides, we will be talking about it, its characters and themes and mysteries, in a highly-informed way. Thank you, Nikki, and Namaste!

Nikki Stafford's books on LOST are the best guide to the show you will find. All of her books offer insight and intelligence for a show that expected much from it's viewers but at the same time Nikki does not give a free pass to it's errors or inconsistencies. I loved her books so much I gave her Buffy the Vampire Slayer companion guide to a friend for her 40th birthday and she said it was her favorite gift!

Nikki Stafford is a great writer; she has a clear style, and all possible interpretations of Lost are considered. Moreover, one learns a lot
with their books through the presentation of literary works that influenced the script of Lost. My advice: buy it.

I must say, this book is amazing from cover to cover. If you are a true fan of LOST or even just a casual viewer, Finding Lost - Season Six is a must read for you. The episode synopses enhance the viewing experience of this amazing show. The chapter on the series finale is so well written, that it is worth buying the book just to read that section. I am one of the LOST fans who truly loves 'The End', and after reading Nikki's observations and analysis on it, I now enjoy it even more than I did before. Thank you Nikki for keeping me interested and entertained with your thoughts.
