BookClub

The Book Club

The Book Club is an informal group of Others who get together periodically to discuss a book that was selected by the meeting's host.

  • Members include: Juliet, Amelia and Adam, among others.
  • Ben didn't attend at least one meeting hosted by Juliet.

Juliet's Book

3x01-Juliet-Carrie

Juliet holding Stephen King's "Carrie"

In "A Tale of Two Cities", Juliet hosts the meeting of the Book Club, which is discussing Stephen King's Carrie.
  • Adam criticizes Juliet's reading selection, saying that Ben wouldn't even read it in the bathroom.
    • In contrast, Ben previously intimated to Locke in "Maternity Leave" that he likes Stephen King, specifically preferring his books to those of Dostoyevsky. This may have been a bit of ironic humor on Ben's part, since the Book Club had been reading a Stephen King novel immediately before witnessing the plane crash, and Ben was interrogated by the Survivors 58 days later.
  • Juliet tells Adam that it is her favorite book. Later, when the Others are drawn outside by the mid-air breakup of Oceanic Flight 815, she is still clutching the book.
  • Ben was a member, and thought Carrie was depressing. He was apparently kicked out of the club by Juliet after the altercation in his kitchen regarding Ben and Rachel's cancer.

Observations

  • It's notable that so many copies of the same book are available on the island. The copies of the book are also various editions with different sleeve artwork.
  • If Ben was still in the club, there would be eight members.

Quotes

  • "So, I guess I'm out of the Book Club." ~ Ben to Juliet
