This massive tome contains nearly everything there is to know about Lost, as it should since it's from the show's official bible. It's well-organized and the high quality photos are a treasure. And yet, there's very little here that isn't already available from watching the show in its entirety. I was hoping for a little more background or a little more history from Lost's more interesting mysteries.

Okay - I fully admit it - I am a die hard Lost fan. But, I never watched it on television. (Lots of channel switching, avoiding articles and covering my eyes and ears...) Instead, I always asked for the latest season on DVD for Christmas. And Christmas 2010 brought the final chapter to this intricate addictive show. But - I will be starting from the beginning again - yes one of the few shows I will re watch. And accompanying me this time will be the Lost Encyclopedia. It's the ultimate reference for fans - a 400 page coffee table book filled with over 1500 glossy colour photos and very, very detailed information...Each and every character that appeared, however briefly, is profiled - including all the passengers on the original flight. Some of them, I didn't even realized appeared on all seasons, such as Cindy the flight attendant. Of course, the main characters are covered in great detail, their connections on and off island and just about anything connected to their story. So many connections that I had forgotten or overlooked on my first watch.It's not just the people covered either. Each of the Dharma stations is profiled as well as the other settings such as the camps. As someone who works in a library, I was always fascinated by what Sawyer was reading (I think my favourite was Are You There God, It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume) and the book references. All covered, as is the music, the Dharma Initiative food brand, the animals, the nicknames Sawyer used for everyone, the meaning of the hieroglyphics at the temples and of course those famous numbers. (Can you list them?) And soooo much more! Lot of obscure minutia to be found - the ingredients for those Apollo candy bars include yak butter and mouse toes.Quoting the executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse:"What you saw on television, the show itself, was the ten percent of the iceberg above the water. But the majority of our time in the writer's room was spent constructing the part below it. The details. The timelines. The intricate backstories of the passengers of Oceanic 815, not to mention the people who inhabited the island long before them. Then we put them altogether and let what happened, happen. Now that the show is over, there has been great curiosity in our process...a desire to see those details in 'offical' form....And so now you hold the first and only official LOST ENCYCLOPEDIA."Definitely the definitive guide to own for fans of Lost. And now if you'll excuse me, Season 1, Disc 1 is waiting.....

LOST ENCYCLOPEDIA To see a photo gallery of this book, visit movieartbook(dot)com. I recently purchased this book on sale. Having not seen "Lost" in several years, the book actually has inspired me to revisit the series. I think this is a must-own for Lost fans, and it would make a great gift. Like a regular encyclopedia, the entries are arranged in alphabetical order. Everything is included - characters, locations, props, companies/organizations, etc. The book also makes use of the show's extensive collection of memorable imagery and includes a variety of pictures on each page. The authors clearly wanted to place as much of an emphasis on the visual aspect of the book as the written aspects. There are a few factual errors and odd omissions here and there, and these are detailed more closely in other customer reviews. But I would say that the authors had a very tough job here in rounding up all the information and mythology from Lost - not only was the show very dense in general, but it's non-linear presentation made keeping track of things all the more difficult. Overall, they did a good job compiling and editing content for this encyclopedia.
