A Few Seasons Later--Still Lost!
Someone asked me whether the book, "Getting Lost," will help you understand "Lost." . . . Well, . . . no. It's like a lot of things in life where just because you know more, doesn't mean you necessarily reach that point where you have total understanding. And when it comes to "Lost," I don't think understanding it is in the cards at all just yet! "Getting Lost" mostly covers the first few seasons, so it doesn't even address some of the weirdness of last season! "Getting Lost" is a series of essays that analyze "Lost" from a variety of different perspectives. It's like reaching into a bag of 15 different pairs of glasses, some tinted, some not, and finding a variety of ways to look at "Lost". I particularly like one essay that analyzes what makes a series compelling in the first place, and how "Lost" has elements of such series. Another essay I really liked was looking at the "leadership style" of various characters, and in this essay, the author pointed out that Hurley was the character who usually came up with a solution, but this often was missed in the Drama and more attention-getting nature of the other characters.Was this review helpful?
