Haven't Read the Book, But Curious About the Publisher May 25, 2007
Full disclosure: I publish another Lost book, which isn't really a Lost book but more a book of cultural criticism. In any case, I checked out this page out of curiosity. And now I'm considering doing a book about the great "Equity Publishing" empire. It's hilarious stuff. If you check out their other books (and you can do so by following the reviews of the publisher, our friend Jim Stewart), you'll find a whole bunch of technical manuals that inevitably have one or two five star reviews (by Jim) followed by furious "The WORST book ever" one star reviews from real people. My question is: Who are you Jim Stewart? And how long before the FTC catches up with you? Most of the reviews of your other books accuse you of stealing your information from the internet and running it through a bad grammar machine. Is this true? What's up? What is behind your madness? I want to know. I'm amused and a little troubled by your schemes. Do you work for the Hanso Foundation?
$24.95 worth of controversy Mar 21, 2007
Well, I finally took the plunge and ordered this book last week. My reason was a simple one- I've read all the other books about "Lost" and was curious if this book was as bad as the reviews claim it is. Well- is it as bad? Yes and no. Whoever edited this book should lose his/her job. For a professional publication the mistakes are horrible. Bad spelling, incorrect use of commas, periods, etc. The double spacing of lines is okay with me except it makes all the other mistakes stand out like a sore thumb. With all that being said, the actual material presented in the book is pretty good. No new revelations are revealed here, but it gives a pretty detailed synopsis of all the action from season one. Each "chapter" represents a first season episode and includes the following- episode summary, analyze this, signs and symbols, Listen to what the fans say, truth and speculation, quotable quips, Sawyerisms and seven degrees of Lost. Quotable quips and Sawyerisms are the best of the material as they take some of the best one-liners from each episode and Sawyer's use of nicknames. The bottom line with this book is that it's a decent one. The editing problems can be bothersome and at $24.95 it is one of (if not the)the most expensive books about Lost on the market. Several other titles listed on this site are just as good, if not better, and are available at much better prices. If your looking to collect everything you can about your favorite show go ahead and buy this book. If your only a casual fan, or just looking to catch up with something you may have missed, look to some of the other books available. As a sidenote, the same publisher (Equity Press) has just released the "Ultimate Season II Guide". I have it but haven't read it yet. At first glance the differences between the two books is glaring. The new book is a smaller size, not double spaced and written by a different author. Not sure yet about grammar and editing. It's also $5 less than the previous book but clocks in at less than 130 pages.
Will Nack be in the third season? Mar 1, 2007
I am an avid fan of the show, and anyone who needs a guide might better stick to the reality tv shows, in my opinion that is half the fun of the show (formulating your own conclusions and catching the subtexts and subtlties on your own or with friends. But as a collector and die hard fan it is nice to own and collect these things. I browsed through this at a friends and was compelled to see what other people had to say about the typos. I am buying a different one (not just because I also LOATHE bad spelling and silly, careless editing...maybe you should w rite "Unofficial guides" for "The Bachelor" or "Survivor"...DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PEOPLE.
Season 1 Lost Guide Feb 7, 2007
This book was the most insightful book I've read for this show. I highly recommend it to all that watch Lost!!!!!
Thanks For The Tip-Off Jan 22, 2007
Glad I read these before I ordered and wasted my money. I hate typos in a published piece; it's a slap in the face to the reader, totally illiterate and irresponsible of the publisher. KT
