Product Description


"Nikki Stafford knows TV, and she knows TV fans . . . Stafford has succeeded in creating books for [Lost fans], a crowd that could arguably be called the most difficult to please."  —Jon Lachonis,

"Nikki Stafford has a gift for writing about television … this book is an interesting read and definitely a must for any Lost fan."  —The Medium Online

"The best part about Finding Lost: The Unofficial Guide is that Nikki Stafford brings the symbolism, themes, and mythology to the forefront, so that casual viewers and devoted fans have a better understanding of what is happening in each episode. When reading many of her points, I would think, 'Yes, of course, I knew that somewhere in my brain, but now Nikki has pointed it out so that I can think about it and come to my own conclusions.'"  —

"If you're a fan of the popular TV show Lost, you can't be without this unofficial guide."  —California Bookwatch

Puzzled about LOST? Put the pieces together with Nikki's help Oct. 15 2009
By Chris J. Doran - Published on
Format: Paperback
For the true LOST aficionado, the hiatus between seasons of the show is only slightly more excruciating than the wait for Nikki Stafford's latest guide to the series. Her in-depth analysis of the relationships, story-telling and mythology of the show is an essential tool in understanding the multi-faceted phenomenon of television's most compelling series. Literary references, the significance of characters' names, scientific theories - they're all described here in accessible and exhaustive detail. Fans the world over are asking themselves: what will they do when LOST ends its sixth and final season in 2010? I can tell them: line up in anticipation of Nikki's next installment

A collector's item Oct. 15 2009
By JW - Published on
Format: Paperback
What I love about Nikki's books is that she has a gift for engaging the reader's mind and letting him or her join in the process of analyzing Lost. It means her books, and this one is no exception, are not only fun to read, but fun to think about for a long time afterward. Season four's guide is her best effort yet and great fun.

Nikki Stafford does a great job of breaking things down in a way that is understandable and accessible, and you do not have to have seen every episode 4 times to get the benefit of her insights. I started out as a casual fan (though that didn't last very long) and didn't have the benefit of in depth knowledge of every twist and turn. Starting with her Season 1 & 2 guide, I would watch the episode, then read the chapter. I was able to follow and understand the nuances and deeper meaning of the activities and plot twists on the show. This has significantly increased my viewing pleasure. :) It was like watching with a friend, then discussing it afterwards! She catches everything, and has some of the same questions I would have at the end of the show. What is great with the later Finding Lost books in the series (Season 3 and 4) is the references to the earlier episodes, bringing even more depth to the analysis.

If you care about good writing, acting, character and plot development in a television show, then this needs to be your viewing companion.

Good book-Needs episode recaps May 15 2009
By Arch - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is well written and insightful. There is one major flaw...The lack of episode recaps. The author warns about the lack of episode recaps up front. Her suggestion is to re-watch the episodes and then read her musings on each episode. I bought this book precisely because my brain was having trouble holding five seasons worth of information and I needed a refresher without having to watch the episodes again. The author does raise some very good questions in her chapters on each episode. Additionally, she recaps who, if anyone,has died in the episode. She also has a special section on the numbers( I need to tell you this) as they appear in each episode.That being said, I can say I am still going to buy Finding Lost Season 5 when in comes out in October.
Losties must buy Dec 22 2014

I am a LOST fanatic! I really enjoy these books, because you can learn so much that you would never realize and it gives great insight and makes you think even more! My mother is watching LOST for the first time, and I watch it with her and read her a chapter after each episode, so she finds it very interesting. I would recommend Finding Lost books for all Losties!
