Advantages High quality pictures, detailed information, secrets from the show, free DVD
I have to admit to being a huge fan of 'Lost', I have been hooked ever since the first episode! When the first series finished I heard that they were releasing an official companion book for the series. Well I just had to have this! It's a brilliant book and covers pretty much eveything, it includes in depth interviews with the cast and crew, high quality picures, an episode guide and lots more. Not to forget that there is a a free DVD of the pilot episode, so that makes the book definitely well worth the money!!For those of you who are not familiar with the show, it's about a group of 48 plane crash survivors who are stranded on a desert Island in the South Pacific. They are have to work together in the hope that they will get rescued. They soon realise that the Island they are on is no ordinary Island, there are polar bears, strange noises coming from the jungle and a mysterious looking hatch hidden in the ground. They have to ask themselves...where are they?
There are lots of different sections in the book and each section is about something different in the show. Here are some of the different sections that are included in the book.THE LOST HISTORY
This section is basically the character profiles. There are 2 character profiles on each page with some basic information, the producers are clever not to give too much away as their stories are later to be revealed in flashbacks in the show. The rest of the pages in this section are about the cast and how they were picked to be on the show and what it's like for them to be working on such a huge television show.
THE LOST MYTHOLOGY
In this section is a brilliant interview with Ian Somerhalder who played Boone, he was the first character to get killed off. Ian talks about what it was like to live and work in Hawaii and how he felt when he got the call to tell him his character was going to get killed off.
The next lot of pages include some secrets from the show and they talk about the mythologies to do with the show.
DREAMING IT UP
In this section there is a script from the show, and the producers talk about the Pilot episode and the changes they had to make for it. For example, Jack (Played by Matthew Fox) was originally going to get killed off and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) was planned to be the heroine of the show. However they had to decide against this in the end as they knew that the audience would begin to like Jack and then when he got killed off they would then resent the show.
WARRIORS OF THE WILDERNESS
Finally the last section is about the making of a single episode, this is a very interesting read, it gives you insight into how they atually make an episode...a lot of hard work goes into it and the result is a brilliant TV show!
