Jim 14 Apr 2011 I know you're out there. We all know that there were so many cool possibilities and angles that were ignored or dropped plotwise because the writers were lazy bastards. I mean, because we failed to see that it was all about the characters. But if you want to read one book that touches on so many of these dropped (or ignored) concepts and theories, consider taking a look at THE EINSTEIN ENIGMA by Jose Rodrigues dos Santos. I love novels that revolve around things that would have fit right in to the LOST that I loved, and this one covers more than any other book that comes to mind. If you're looking for an edge-of-your-seat thriller, you'll probably be disappointed, but if you're looking for a serviceable bit of fiction that covers a *ton* of cool territory (religion, philosophy, physics, etc.) then look no further. Your inner geek will thank you.
