DarkUFO - Lost

Thanks to Lyly for finding this article from the Washington Post.

Jen Chaney and Liz Kelly -- co-authors of washingtonpost.com's weekly "Lost" analysis (in season) -- continue the "Lost" Book Club series with a discussion of Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time," another book that may hold clues about the past, present and future of "Lost."

Start reading now. Then, join Jen and Liz on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at Noon ET to talk about the book and answer any holiday season time travel questions.

Jen Chaney: I have a feeling we are going to hit maximum density on nerdiness in this chat. Discussing quantum physics AND "Lost" at the same time? Forget the universe contracting and expanding ; this alone could make all the stars and planets in the system explode.

My feelings about reading "A Brief History of Time"?:I was glad I read it, since it's not a book I would ever have picked up on my own. And I do think there are some "Lost" connections to explore here. But I would also say that the prose in Stephen Hawking's book sang as beautifully as the text in my high school chemistry book. Which is to say, it was often dull and incomprehensible. The closing chapters, which delve more into philosophy and how that ties into science, were the meaty, more interesting parts to me.
