        Wry, witty, and wise, Outside Looking In is an ideal subject for this American master, and highlights Boyle’s acrobatic prose, detailed plots, and big ideas. It’s an utterly engaging and occasionally trippy look at the nature of reality, identity, and consciousness, as well as our seemingly infinite capacities for creativity, re-invention /5(23).   Outside Looking In is a story with brilliant pacing and insightful comedic timing, from a powerhouse mind that makes it all look effortless. In early s Boston, psychology PhD candidate Fitz Lohey works under the advisorship of Timothy Leary—a fictionalized version of the real-life cultural icon, that is.

        Praise for OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: ‘At one point in this tense thriller, the endearing protagonist reflects that the investigation is like having “all the pieces of the jigsaw but from different boxes”. Matilda Darke is right – and only in the final pages is the full picture revealed ’ Chris SimmsBrand: HarperCollins Publishers.   Outside Lyrics: And you can bring me to my knees again / All the times that I could beg you please in vain / All the times that I felt insecure for you / .

      I found that Outside Looking In was quite dark in places, I don’t remember that being the case with For Reasons Unknown, but this was a pleasant surprise – it fitted the mood of the reader and I like when books are a bit more edgy when I read them.   Wry, witty, and wise, Outside Looking In is an ideal subject for this American master, and highlights Boyle’s acrobatic prose, detailed plots, and big ideas. It’s an utterly engaging and occasionally trippy look at the nature of reality, identity, and consciousness, as well as our seemingly infinite capacities for creativity, re-invention Brand: HarperCollins Publishers.
