What are the best stories about people being lost?

I mean anything. Books, TV shows, short stories, video games, novels, films, comic books, aficionadofic, aficionadofilms, true stories, etc et al.

Genre can be anything, ala my thread's tags

Some of my picks are "Gilligan's Island", "Land of the Giants" & "Star Trek: Voyager".

I've never seen LOST

Your choices>

I still fail to see what the big deal about lost is...

Giligans Island is a million times better in my opinion

One book that comes to mind regarding this is Into Thin Air, it's about a Mount Everest expedition that went horribly wrong (non-fiction). I read it years ago, and found it quite impressive.

I used to think that way.


Then I watched it.


Now, I feel foolish.
