Sometimes it feels like you need a Ph.D. to follow the show. But you don't. You just need this book in which 21 philosophers explore the deep questions we all face as survivors on this planet: Does "everything happen for a reason"? Is torture ever justified? Who are the Others? How do we know we're not patients in Hurley's psych ward? What if the Dharma Initiative is experimenting on us? Desmond may not be able to save Charlie, but this book could save you.

Pain in the ass!

I could not listen longer than one chapter: the narrater rattles off the philosophical statements as if she has to win a price for the fastest narrator on earth: no pauses, no pronounciations what so ever. A pain in the ass, not worth the money. I recommend to buy the book/ebook in this case to learn more about the philosophical aspects of LOST by reading.

Keine Empfehlung: Die Erzählerin rattert den Text herunter als wollte sie einen Preis für die am schnellsten sprechende Erzählerin bekommen. Keine Pausen, keine vernünftigen Betonungen, im Gegenteil immer dieselbe Tonlage. Sehr enervierend, ich konnte nicht länger als ein Kapitel zuhören. Man kauft sich in diesem Fall besser das Buch zum lesen! Sehr schade, denn das Hörbuch von Inception hat mir sehr gut gefallen.
