From the Inside Flap

Stranded on a desert island in the South Pacific, forty-eight survivors of a horrendous plane crash struggle to stay alive. Some panic. Some pin their hopes on rescue. A few find inner strength they never knew they had. Whatever happens, the band of friends, family, enemies and strangers must work together against the cruel weather and harsh terrain if they are to survive . . .
Now, in The Lost Chronicles, the official series companion, the secrets of Lost can be revealed. As well as profiles of each character and in-depth interviews with the cast and crew, there is a detailed episode guide with reflections and anecdotes from the creators of the show. We go behind the storylines which have gripped viewers around the world and explore the mysterious and terrifying history of Lost’s island paradise.
A must-have for fans everywhere, The Lost Chronicles celebrates the birth of a global television sensation.

Format: Hardcover
TV producers usually know that fans of certains shows are like putty in their hands and will therefore shell out their hard-earned cash on just about any old tat. So it's a really refreshing change to find a TV companion book that is superb in its own right. Just about everything that could be crammed in is in here - from cast interviews and episode summaries to behind-the-scenes how-did-they-do-that explanations of Lost, from genesis to special effects. To top it all off the photos are superb and the print quality of the book is excllent. If you are a fan of the show, or are just interested in how TV programmes make it from the drawing board to the screen then this book is a must-have. Word of warning though - there are loads of spoilers in here so if you haven't seen all of Season 1 yet you might want to keep the book hidden somewhere safe - I couldn't resist and found out who lives/dies etc (my own fault, really!) And to top it all off, there is also a CD included with the book featuring the first half of the pilot episode so that you can relive that terrifyingly real plane crash all over again...

Great details, behind the scenes, characters and spoilers (if you bought the book before the end of the screening on the tv)
Has pilot shows on a DVD. Great stuff. If your an avid fan it gives you details of where everyone comes from. I tried to hold myself back from reading the rest of the book while the show was on but just couldnt.
Great book, explains everything about lost and why each person was on the book.

If you are a big fan like I am and you are curious to find out more about the storyline and the plot of Lost, this is not the book to find it in. No hidden mysteries or meanings are found within this book.

However, if you are in doubt about certain events that happened in the first series and require some more explanation here and there, this book includes detailed descriptions of the main events of each episode. Although detailed, it is no way a substitute for the DVD series themselves however.

Also if you are interested in learning more about how the series started, how the set looked like and problems they encountered while shooting the series and how these problems were resolved, I'd highly recommend the book. It is a great 'behind-the-scenes' book.

I read this book shortly after watching the entire first season straight through and have to say that like the TV show there is an impression that the writers don't really know quite where they're going with things. It's worth a look if you're a newcomer to the series but I'd say having now finished five years worth of the program a lot of the content here will either be out of date or highly contradictory.
