Could anyone explain what Bad Twin is about and is it worth buying. I understand that the book is not like the other 3 LOST books and it involves the hanso foundation in it...and it also seems to have a tie-in with TLE..but thats all i know about the book. Could anyone explain more?

In season 2, both Hurley and Sawyer are seen reading a manuscript of the book, which is supposed to have been written by an author who was killed during the Flight 815 crash. It's a mystery novel that contains loads of references to things mentioned on Lost such as the numbers, the Widmore Corporation and the Hanso Foundation. It's basically about a private eye named Paul Artisan who is hired by a member of the Widmore family to find his twin brother.
I thought it was a good book. If I didn't, I wouldn't have read it in a week. :)

It was a REALLY good book. It surprised me. It's written by the mythicle author Gary Troup. It's about a detective named Paul Artisan that searches for Zander Widmore, a member of the Widmore family. It's a well crafted mystery, with TONS of Lost references. Check out the "Hidden Stuff in Bad Twin" thread for more information on that. There are spoilers though...
Although the book was very good, if I had never seen Lost, I wouldn't have picked up on anything at all.

Am I the only one who thought the book was really really badly written, and was over-detailed? It's kind of cool because parts of it are relevant to the show or the Lost Experience, but there's NO WAY I would recommend it to someone just to read it for fun. Sorry Gary Troup, you were a really terrible author, RIP.
