This novel is key to one of the main themes of Lost. Dostoevsky uses two of the brothers to carry on his own inner struggle with the existence vs the non-existence of God. This comes up all the time on the show along with people's guilt around their various harmful deeds and the Others' list of 'good ones' – people supposedly worth saving. I think the Others have a messed-up idea of ethics and spirituality – sort of dharma mixed with Christianity and some kind of cult worship of Jacob. The brainwashing room is an example of an initially spiritual plan gone very wrong.
but thats old, from s2
Jrcaporal, nothing is useless just because it was in a past season. It's all one mystery – all these tidbits accumulate to finally show us what it all means. Why are these people who have so many past connections to each other and so much guilt gathered in this mysteriously powerful place?
I noticed this clue also, but couldn't figure out what it meant. Good work!
I didn't find this as a clue for season 2... now I don't even remember what I found... but this doesn't mean anything I think. John gave Ben the brothers Karamazov to read and Ben drew the map on this page... it's just that, nothing else, I think.
Actually, Lock gave this book to "Henry" when he was in the "The Swan" station as a prisoner, in "Maternity Leave", then Ana Lucia ask Henry to write her a map of the ballon, so he used the first page of the book.
ups! Jake chambers beat me!

dharmabum14 said : "...struggle with the existence vs the non-existence of God."yup and another main theme in the novel (frickin GREAT book, btw, anyone have extra time on their hands should give this one a go) is the idea of 'sins of the father' and patricide - yeah, just a few connections to Lost ;)
Extra time... lol... I had to read it in SCHOOL! :D I love russian realism...
johnlocke, got this present for you http://bolivar.baez.googlepages.com/superposbest.jpg
Bolivar Baez Nice find....i can't see the map in the real picture....
Notice what happens when the title page of the book is turned over to draw the map. The KAR is covered up with writing, and... AMAZOV backwards becomes VOSAMA.
can you do the same thing up the pc portable ... looks like text on left of the light
