Bonnie Covel gives great review for The Myth of Lost
"If you are familiar with my reviews, you know that I am not big on Lost books because they get outdated so quickly. The Myth of Lost may suffer the same fate of becoming outdated, but not if you think of it in the way it was meant to be read. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever been a Lost fan. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”— Bonnie Covel, About.com

 The Lost Initiative Podcast
Lost Podcaster Aimee Noto reviews and endorses The Myth of Lost
"Oromaner’s theory in The Myth of Lost is impressive in how it explains almost everything in a neat and simple package. I found myself smiling, laughing out loud, or shouting, 'Oh my God, he totally called it!!' when Oromaner provided either theoretical support or predictions. I highly encourage anyone who enjoys reading and understanding more about Lost to read this book. Oromaner does an absolutely amazing job covering every base, from the characters and mysteries to the subplots and all the connections. Besides Lost fans, I’d even recommend The Myth of Lost to anyone who is looking for answers and insight into their own lives." — Aimee Noto, The Lost Initiative podcast

 The Tail Section

Popular Lost blog reviews The Myth of Lost
"Oromaner doesn't just speculate as many other Lost theorists do, he points to evidence in the show to back up nearly every aspect of his theory. As a result, The Myth of Lost is extremely persuasive. Oromaner's theory is the best I've read and is easy to follow. The book itself is a lot of fun with writing that is intelligent and witty, yet retaining a conversational feel. In short, The Myth of Lost is a must-read for serious Lost fans (and hopefully the Lost writers)."

Buddy TV
First Myth of Lost online review
“A compelling, fascinating read for fans of the show. I've pondered numerous ways the Lost producers could end the series, but rarely has anyone presented an argument as detailed as the one found in The Myth of Lost. I was mightily impressed with Oromaner’s Lost knowledge, and I'm interested to see if his theory ties into the final seasons of the show. I had a lot of fun reading the book, and I hope my review encourages people to pick it up.” — Don Williams, BuddyTV Staff Writer
