This is a brilliant idea.

I'm just been trying to remember what books I liked when I was still at school, the ones that I have come up with so far are: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (I know it's a graphic novel but it's really good!), Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie, Wild Swans by Jung Chang, The Wind Singer, by William Nicholson. There are probably many more, but that's all I can think of right now - hope I've helped a bit though!

Here's the thing, brother: I agree that there's definitely some fluff going on, and I'm not particularly fond of it. However, it's just something you take along with the better conversation regarding the series.

Some examples:

  • Theory discussion with ohhimark108 on the nature of the smoke monster

  • Topic theorizing why Sun didn't end up in '77

  • Discussion on father figures

    I'd say upvote the types of topics you'd like to see more of, and make posts you feel will foster the discussions you're looking for. One of great things about LOST is that it appeals to such a wide variety of tastes: you can watch and enjoy the fact that there's a rich subtext of philosophical themes & literary antecedents, or you can be a fan because a lot of camera angles that show off Juliet's cleavage & a lot of shit gets blowed up.

    You want something deeper and more in-depth? Don't get hung up on the image macros, or other frivolous posts. Instead, submit a topic asking what thematic concerns are echoed between LOST and Haroun and the Sea of Stories, or questioning the complicated relationship between free will and determinism displayed by Juliet's detonation of Jughead during the Incident -- I guarantee there are people in the subreddit who will gladly contribute to the conversation.

PM me with details. Amazon.com says that they have it in stock http://www.amazon.com/Haroun-Sea-Stories-Salman-Rushdie/dp/0140157379 If the Shipping charges don't exceed $50, I will get send it to him. Might go over that depending on how my RK fund is doing by the time you respond.

Rushdie's Luka and the Fire of Life and Haroun and the Sea of Stories are good reads (for adults too).
