So I was reading Whirligig by Paul Fleischman, and I came across a term in a paragraph that made me think of Lost. Here it is: "Out of nowhere, the word karass came to mind, from the Vonnegut book he'd read in English, a term for a disparate group of people linked together without their knowledge. Your family and friends weren't part of your karass. You couldn't choose it's members, and might never know who was in it or what its purpose was." This reminded me of Lost a little bit. Like the survivors together in the afterlife, you know. What do ya'll think?
