- I LOVE the television show LOST.
- I enjoy a good challenge.
- I read a lot.
LOST is a show that features many literary references. They often have characters read a book and some of the plots and themes of the show are inspired by literature. The goal of the challenge is to read 5 books that have made an appearance on or inspired something on the show. The deadline for this challenge is the series finale in 2010.
I’ve already read a bunch of books (okay, 15 of them) that are on the LOST reading list including A Wrinkle in Time, Lord of the Flies, Watership Down, and Slaughter-House Five.
The five books that I plan to read for this challenge are:
- An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce
- The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
- The Third Policemanby Flann O’Brien
- Laughter in the Dark by Vladimir Nabokov
- A Brief History of Time by Stephen W. Hawking
Have you read any of these books? Are you a fan of LOST?
