Definitely recommend for all LOST fanatics like me.
Jessyca Kaiser
The collection of essays in this book edited by Pearson Moore provides a thoughtful philosophical discourse on most of the themes, mythology and characters of LOST.

One of my favorite things about the show was jumping online after an episode aired and trying to figure out what the heck I just watched.

I loved "LOST Thought: Leading Thinkers Discuss LOST" - edited by Pearson Moore. First the cons: There were some silly, forgettable essays - 'Daddy Issues in Lost' (didn't say anything much - strange given the importance of the theme) and 'The Mother Image in Lost' (IMO feminist, arty clap-trap) and 'Lost As Neo-Baroque' (this one was probably good but for the most part it went right over my head). Also, there were some spelling and grammar issues at times, but nothing too serious. Now, the pros: The essays cover pretty much everything you can think of concerning LOST. While I didn't always agree with the conclusions of the essays, I enjoyed the majority and found them incredibly thought-provoking, interesting and well-written. I've read over 12 books about the series and read too many online essays to count (many of them by Moore) and this still managed to include quite a bit of material I'd never before encountered. An excellent, academic look at LOST, but not one for casual fans. 9/10

The collection of essays in this book edited by Pearson Moore provides a thoughtful philosophical discourse on most of the themes, mythology and characters of LOST. In my opinion LOST was the greatest show to ever appear on television and one reason for that is the scholarly nature it seemed to bring. The essay writers discuss much of this. The topic of whether LOST was postmodern or in fact argued against postmodernism was one topic particularly fascinating. There is also a fair amount of discussion of plot mysteries in the show that diehard fans will enjoy.

Completing the wonderfully written two previous books on Lost by Pearson Moore, along comes this collection of essays on the Lost mythos, characters and themes. A definitely heterogenous, extremely encompassing account of several thinkers, analysts and altogether loving experiencers of the Lost universe, this collection will satiate the most ardent fans' thirst for extended considerations on the meaning of the six years of stories that will always impact our lives.

LOST Thought: Leading Thinkers Discuss LOST is a great book for LOST fans! One of my favorite things about the show was jumping online after an episode aired and trying to figure out what the heck I just watched. I would read theories, discussions, and episode recaps. Some of my favorite lost fans, writers, and bloggers are included in this book. It's entertaining and always interesting to see our favorite show through the eyes of others. Just like each eye that opens on the Island.

This is a serious book for the serious Lost fan, someone who has watched the show more than once and wants to delve below the mysteries and plot twists to discover deeper meaning in the show. This book is food for thought. It doesn't tell you how to think about Lost, it tells you what some serious fans have thought about it. Some of the essays are better than others, a couple are a little above my head and some even contradict others, but most will challenge the reader to take another look and discover treasures you might not have known were there. I came away from reading this book with a greater admiration for the show that inspired these thoughtful essays. Good stuff.
