Talk about a shamless, pointless tie in. This book is so useless in every way, I can't even begin to explain what a waste of time it is. I'm a huge fan of LOST, which I find to be incredibly well written, so I got this book hoping that it would be a decent enough story - boy was I wrong. If you're truly a fan of the show who appreciates good writing, steer clear of this one, it will leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.
The book is interesting, but it's important to note that THERE ARE GRAPHIC, FIRST HAND, DESCRIPTIONS OF HOMOSEXUAL ACTS. I was listening along, and things were pretty normal, and then, without warning, BAM! I'm in the middle of a gay porn. Don't get me wrong, I respect homosexuals and their lifestyle - It's none of my business what two people do behind closed doors, and if they're happy, then more power to 'em, but this is a little different. I don't watch gay porn. I don't read gay erotica. I certainly don't want to hear about how the author's 33 year-old boyfriend crammed his - well, you get the idea. I wish there had been some sort of warning to let me know what I was in for -
But the book itself? Not bad - the characters are insane, and it's really a collections of vingettes, rather than a story. The author reads it, and you'd think he'd never picked it up before, because all of his emphases are on the wrong parts of the sentences, but once you get past that, it's not a bad book.
