Update: 27th April Vozzek has kindly allowed us to post a Chapter of his book for those that still might be considering purchasing it.
Update: 3rd Jan 18:00 Here is a new Review from DarkUFO regular Ricky.
It really is a great book, And I have no reason to lie! I am not being payed for this nor do I have any hidden agenda. As for the price of the book; 15 dollars is a drop in the bucket compared to what you'll pay for the DVDs or Blu-Rays of Lost after this is all said and done (and most of you will or have purchased the DVDs or blu-rays) and this actually sends you in the direction of answers as opposed to the show itself Ha Ha!
Admittedly The Author Vozzek has no more access to insider info than you or I do, but what makes this book so great is the Perception(s) that he has on the show. He knows his stuff, and he's obviously dissected the show even more so than I, and I thought that I had really gotten crazy with my re-watches, especially as of late!
There are things in this book that will not only surprise you, they will totally make you mark your place, get up and put in the appropriate DVD to see first hand what it is that Vozz here is talking about, and it will surprise you that you never saw, or heard whatever thing it is that compelled you to put in your DVD.
All in all This book is filled with so much info that you hate having to put it down to eat and sleep. It reads very quickly, with Vozzek's style of fast-paced, in your face, type prose. And it leaves you wanting more after you finish it. It's a great companion to the pre-season six experience, and any re-watch session.
I highly Recommend anyone who is a Theorist in their own right, or anyone who loves to read and comment on theories, and even the Lurkers who choose to stay in the cyber shadows and soak in all the genius that is the "combined consciousness" of the LOST online community, to please get your copy of this book. You will not be sorry you did.

Review by Jack Powers
I am an avid fan of LOST and have been a regular reader of Vozzek's online postings. I always enjoyed the posts so I was looking forward to reading his book. I received it and quickly read it from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think that anyone who is a fan of LOST will enjoy it as well.
Anyone who has read Vozzek's postings will know that he has brought up the idea of a theory of perception in LOST. This theory is both tedious and controversial. I happen to really enjoy it, but I realize there are many that do not. The great thing about the book is that there is only one chapter dedicated to the perception theory. The rest of the chapters are a collection of different theories as to what may or may not be going on in LOST. These theories are wide ranging. Some of them are new, and some of them expand on ideas that fans have had since the beginning. The author supports each of these theories with generous amounts of supporting evidence from the show, and is careful not to give his opinion as to which one he most believes. The best thing about this book is that you come away from it not with someone's opinion of what's happening, but with a better understanding with what YOU think might be happening.
If you're a LOST fan, you will be excited by the fact that certain chapters in this book may reinforce theories that you've had about the show. At the same time, other chapters will make you want to pull your hair out and say, "No, they can't actually be doing that!" Everyone who reads this will have their own opinion of what theories are the best and which ones are horrible. The author simply presents the theories in a straightforward way. It's up to us as fans to decide which one(s) of them we like the best.
I should also note that, in my opinion, this book doesn't have to be read chronologically. With the exception of the intro and chapter one, it can be read in whatever order you desire. I did choose to read it in order though because once I started I couldn't stop.
Overall, I recommend this book highly to any LOST fan. It's the perfect thing to read as we patiently wait for the sixth and final season of LOST to arrive.
As we teased a short while ago, Vozzek, our resident and popular Lost Recapper and theorist has finally gotten of his ass after much prompting and written a book. I suspect this will be one of the must have books for Lost fans every where.
To go along with the book he has created a new website here: http://www.thingsinoticed.com/ which he hopes to update pretty regularly with thoughts, scene analysis, humor, and other stuff throughout the coming season...
You can also purchase the book through the above site and anyone who does, will, if they want, get it autographed.
You can also purchase through Amazon if you prefer here.
I've already ordered my copy!
