Supposedly this book is a big influence on Lost, so I spent most of the time mining for theories about how the show's going to end. While there are a few parallels, the book was pretty hard to get through. It had an Alice in Wonderland / psychedelic Kafka kind of thing going on for most of the story. The ending was thought provoking though. I'm surprised to learn that it was written in 1940.
