Reading list for LOST fans

LOSTFan of J.J. Abrams and his Star Trek movies, maybe also his hit TV series about parallel universes, Fringe?

Or what about LOST?

For me, the man is a genius, for his work is cross-genre, part science fiction, part philosophy, part spiritual. Often, his stories offer no answers, merely more questions. In my first two novels, Borderliners and Split Symmetry, I touch on many similar themes: dreams and reality, science v religion, destiny, metaphysics, themes to be found in much of J.J. Abram’s work.

So…for those of you who enjoy the SF/metaphysical nature of his work, I recently discovered a reading list which I would gladly work through. I’ve modified it a bit and added a few titles of my own. Enjoy!

Here’s the original list.

Here’s my version:

Lewis Carroll – Alice In Wonderland
William Golding – Lord of the Flies
Tiziano Terzani – A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East
Milan Kundera – Immortality
Paulo Coelho – The Alchemist
Madeleine L’Engle – A Wrinkle in Time
Gary Troup – Bad Twin
Fyodor Dostoevsky – The Brothers Karamazov
Aldous Huxley – Island
L. Frank Baum – The Wizard of Oz
Agatha Christie – Evil Under the Sun
Ayn Rand – The Fountainhead
Vladimir Nabokov – Laughter in the Dark
Jack Kerouac – On the Road
Kurt Vonnegut – Slaughterhouse-Five
C.S. Lewis – The Chronicles of Narnia
Jules Verne – Survivors of the Chancellor
James Joyce – Ulysses
Carlos Castaneda – A Separate Reality
Martin Heidegger – Being and Time
Carl G. Jung – The Earth Has a Soul
Joseph Conrad – Heart of Darkness and the Congo Diary
Kevin Michel – Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams
Kirsten Arcadio – Split Symmetry

    • Thanks Kevin! Although Split Symmetry is the one most similar to Lost, so if you don’t get on with Borderliners (which is thematically linked but quite different in tone), don’t give up on me! Split Symmetry might be more suitable. Thanks for downloading Borderliners though! Kirsten
