Fans of "Lost" have been scooping up copies of this book since it appeared on the show last year. It's hard to follow at times but presents some fascinating ideas on "atomic theory" as well as the existence of eternity and the universe.

It's like Alice and Wonderland: an absolutely bewildering delight. Hint: please don't read any spoilers.

Anything I say will be a spoiler. But here goes: this is the whimsical tale of a murderer's descent into Hell. How the author pulls THAT off is for you to find out. It really is a very surreal book and challenging to my perceptions. Not hard to read but hard to forget.

Really original and funny. Aptly called a classic.
