Post Novels similar to LOST the TV series
Does anyone know of any suspenseful mystery novels that are similar to the story line in LOST?

I don't know of any but I'd be interested in this sort of book too.

Post Re: Novels similar to LOST the TV series
Well I have only watched one episode of Lost so I#M not very familiar with it. But based on what I remember the book series "The 100" might interest you... There is a TV series based on it as well. Its more Sci-Fi/Dystopia rather then mystery (although it is quite mysterious at times) but it features a bunch of young people stranded on a deserted earth trying to survive. I thought it was really good when I read it few years back but I'm not sure if it's the kind of thing you're looking for.

You might try "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding. It is an older book, written in 1954. There was a movie, came out in 1963; and I think one or more remakes.

I've read Lord of the Flies (who hasn't?) :)

"The 100" is a great TV series.

I stumbled across this novel not long ago. The Search by Jordan Shore. It kind of had a "Lost vibe" to it.

Also, Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane could be a good fit for Lost fans. But I imagine most people already read that one...

Anyway, thanks for responding.

Cheers!

Post Re: Novels similar to LOST the TV series
I don't know, depends on what part of Lost's vibe you're talking about. I looked out of curiosity and all the influences they stated are either film/television or comic books. For books I can think of some trapped on an island or wilderness location books (The Most Dangerous Game or The Lost World) but don't really have the Twilight Zone angle lost had. I can't remember why but at the time I remembered thinking it was somewhat influenced by Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series, particularly the 2nd and 3rd books. It's a LOT crazier than Lost though. There's also King's "Under The Dome" which has been compared to Lost a lot but I hated that book so much I can't recommend it, coming out near the end of Lost's run it was accused by many of being derivative of the series. John Wyndham's "The Midwich Cuckoos" comes to mind for some reason though it's hard to explain why. The sci-fi mystery that unfolds and the way the town gets cut off in the beginning for a while.
