Third children's book to appear on Lost

Jen Robinson was kind enough to point out that there was yet another children's book sighting on Lost recently. The character of Sawyer has already been seen reading Watership Down and A Wrinkle In Time. Pop quiz, kids. Can you think of the one element these books have in common? If so, you know one of the big plot points on the show. Recently he was seen reading Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret?. Does that mean he's about to get his period? Only time will tell.

....rabbits? It's not rabbits, is it.

Nope. Are there rabbits in "A Wrinkle In Time"? No no, it's... well...

Okay, it's the fact that in BOTH books you have a young male character with slightly freaky powers. In "Watership Down" (and I didn't know this because it's the fourth book down on my to-be-read pile) it's a rabbit. In "A Wrinkle In Time" it's Charles Wallace. And in "Lost" it's Walt. This is cool, but I still don't see how "Are You There, God?" will apply this season.

Thanks for the link! I like your parallel between Charles Wallace and Fiver (I think) and Walt. There's also some more subtle parallel about people (or rabbits) being watched more than they realize, by some big brother-ish entity. Hmmm... Not sure about "Are You There, God", but I'm still glad to see the kid lit references coming!

I also thought that maybe in "A Wrinkle In Time" the big bit "IT" might fit in in some way. I dunno. I'm halfway through the season 2 episodes that have already aired. Guess we'll just have to keep on watched Lost, eh?
