The list author says: "This is Melissa_Lossa, your friendly book club leader! TLC - this list holds our selections for the 2009 hiatus, plus some "extra credit" reads. You can also reference the books that we've done over the last two years at the bottom of the list. Let me know what books I'm missing. If you have any questions, you know where to find me!
""The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed." A reference to the "Man in Black" from the season 5 finale. Although I'm only including the first book on this list, I recommend the whole series. There are several themes that tie into Lost, including the big finale."
"Extra Credit This is another book that the creators have cited as being a big influence on Lost. It's also Stephen King's best, in my humble opinion. The good vs. evil themes definitely apply to Lost."
