Notes on the Inhabitants of the Island
Search the LOST Notebook:
Books & Games (read/shown on the island)
  • Books
    • “Of Mice & Men” (Sawyer read it in prison, but it was referenced by both Sawyer & Ben Linus while they enjoyed a fine hike on one of the hillsides of a second island)
    • Unknown “Book Club” book by Stephen King
      • Whatever it is, it’s Juliet’s favorite book
      • There’s some controversy over the actual book that the book club was supposed to read; there are several covers shown and the most consistent appearances seem to be either “Dark Tower” or “Carrie” (but, as one visitor pointed out, “The Dark Tower” was published on Sept. 21, 2004 and the book club was held on the 22nd… unlikely they’d already have the book & have read it… but the question remains open).
    • “Our Mutual Friend” by Charles Dickens; a book that Desmond has been saving as the last book he’d read before he dies. It is where he found a note from the woman who he loves; promising that she’d love him always. It is also where he kept the key that would terminate the Swan Complex’s system (of which the 108 Machine was a part).
    • “Watership Down” by Richard Adams
    • “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle
    • “The Turn of the Screw” by Henry James (Orientation film was behind this book)
    • “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding (not shown or read, but referenced… and pretty similar to a lot of the events on the island)
    • “The Third Policeman” by Flann O’Brien (shared shelf with orientation film)
    • “Lancelot” by Walker Percy
    • “The Brothers Karamazov” by Fyodor Dostoevsky
    • “Bad Twin” by Gary Troup (a manuscript, part of which was burned by Jack; might be worth noting that “Gary Troup” can be an anagram for “purgatory”)
    • “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” by Judy Blume
    • The Christian Bible
  • Games
    • Backgammon
    • Poker (most notably between Jack & Sawyer… playing for the medical supplies)
    • Golf! (there’s even a makeshift course somewhere on the island, thanks to the “cruise director” efforts of Hurley)
    • Off the island, Locke was shown playing the games “Risk” and “Mousetrap” (apparently his favorite game); in the mental institution Hurley was playing “Connect Four” with the gentleman from whom he got “The Numbers”
    • Off the island, the inhabitants of the polar station (end of Season II) were playing chess
