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 was not invited to at least one meeting hosted by Juliet.

Juliet's Book

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.
  • Juliet tells Adam that it is her "all-time favorite" book. Later, when the Others are drawn outside by the mid-air breakup of Oceanic Flight 815, we see her clutching a book with Stephen King's name written across the top.
    • Screen captures from the episode have shown the book to be Carrie.

Ben and Juliet

  • Adam's criticism that Ben would disapprove of Juliet's selection indicates either that Ben is the regular host of the Book Club, or has some personal connection with Juliet such as roommate, boyfriend, husband or brother.
    • This may show Adam's and the rest of the Others' reverence for Ben, and Juliet's displeasure with how Ben runs things (also apparent in the subtext of the final exchange between the two as Juliet leaves the observation room for Jack's cell).


  • Adam and Juliet's discussion about Juliet's book choice could be a subtle commentary on Lost itself. During the dialogue, Juliet says something like, "And here I was thinking we have free will."
  • The book Carrie is potentially an allusion to Juliet's character. Perhaps she perceives herself as an outcast, like Carrie, and will get her revenge by assisting or joining the Lostaways.
  • The art on the wall looks similar to that in the Staff station.
  • Strange Resemblances:
  1. The man sitting next to the older woman looks vaguely similar to the policeman who released Jack from jail at the end of "A Tale of Two Cities".
  2. The African-American woman could be Bea Klugh, the Other who spoke to Michael during his captivity and was present at the Pala Ferry in the finale of Season 2.


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