A Good Book to go along with Lost, that has never been mentioned

The Magus, a novel (1966) by British writer John Fowles.
The plot concerns a young teacher, Nicholas Urfe, who takes a job on a Greek island and finds himself lured into an elaborate fiction staged by a wealthy resident, Maurice Conchis. Fowles uses this enigmatic story to explore the nature of individual identity and freedom of choice.

Hi. I am an uber Lost fan. Admittedly, I jumped on the bandwagon a little late, halfway through the third season but thanks to the DVD's I am all caught up and do frequent re-watches. BTW my new image reflects my love/hate relationship with Lost. I always feel like I am on the verge of blowing up at the end of every episode because when I think I finally figured it out, nope the rug is pulled out.

  1. Hi Cocoadoll

    There is always one and this time I’m afraid its me! I love The Magus, its one of my favourite books, I lived on a Greek island years ago so its close to my heart and its also an amazing story that has stayed with me for life. I mentioned it in some post a while back, I’m sure but I absolutely see the parallels and was surprised that the book wasn’t featured in Sawyer’s reading list to be honest! Highly recommended to anyone that hasn’t read it yet. I’m currently reading The Stand which everyone on here is talking about – its even longer than The Magus but I’m pretty addicted already. Was so pleased to see someone else saw The Magus happening here…
