Book Review: The Gospel According to Lost by Chris Seay

Initially I was thrilled when I saw that Thomas Nelson Book Review team (now known as BookSneeze) was offering The Gospel According to Lost by Chris Seay as one of their featured books.  I've been hooked on the television show Lost since the first season aired 6 years ago.

Seay's book promised a spiritual take on the show and its characters.

When the show first started, I joined the official ABC Lost message board, made online friendships with some great fans (a couple of them even met up with me on my trip to California).  What does that have to do with Seay's book?

He disappointed me.  Maybe its because I'm use to discussing the show with ladies who sit down and watch the show with a note pad - jotting down anything and everything for discussion later. 

The book felt more to me like one of those popup video recap shows.  Seay would address a character each chapter, summarize their story, then at the end would add a little "pop" of their spirituality at the end of the chapter.

A little been there, done that for me.  Maybe it would be more enjoyable for the more casual fan of the show.


  1. For me this new book by Chris Seay intended to enhance excitement towards watching Season 6, I enjoyed it.

    (Maybe I'm just a normal fans of Lost)

  2. I'm glad to know this--now I'm not super disappointed that that particular book was all out when I signed up for my last book!

    Yeah, I'm sure I would have been irritated the whole way through :) I'm used to deep discussions about the show too.


what up yo?
