  1. Pending questions from book guide
  2. The concept of family and family relations play a central role in "A Christmas Carol". In fact, the redemption of Scrooge is directly tied to his recognition and reconciliation to to his own family and becoming part of his employee's family. Consider the following:

    • Does the concept of "family" play a similar role in Lost
    • How can "family" be defined for purposes of this book (look for example at the use of the term in page 322)? Is there a possibility that Maguire's gay identity might have influenced how "family" is defined
