This is a listen for those curious about what life was like under the spell of the real-life cult-like figure Timothy Leary, who extolled the virtues of psychedelic drugs, free love, and the search for enlightenment. Boyle's latest novel takes the listener back to the 1960s and a group of PhD students who are followers of the charismatic psychologist. Narrator Johnathan McClain delivers this story in a mellow tone that illuminates the days of drug experimentation and flower power. Boyle knows how to tell a story, and McClain offers a nice balance of skilled pacing and a sensitive approach to characters who may leave listeners aghast at their life choices.
