    One thought on “Outward Bound”

    1. A pleasure to find a Hogan I haven't read, they're a dying breed. This was interesting, he's not known for his coming of age stories. Whilst this worked, I do think it lacked something in tone of some of the other novels he's pushed out. I can't argue that I didn't enjoy it, but equally I don't think it's one I'd pick up again without compelling cause.

    2. review of James P. Hogan's Outward Bound by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE Schmeck. This is one of those bks that has ZILCH originality to the writing.

AND it's a "JupiterTM" [imagine "TM" in superscript] novel - Jupiter's trademarked. Trademark my dick, why doncha?! The basic story's about a gangster kid repurposing his life for outer-space, discovering a more positive side to [...]

    3. I read the book, Outward Bound, By James P. Hogan for an English project. This book is an amazing futuristic space novel.

This is the marvelous story of his change and what he went through before it could happen. The slow influx of multiple minor characters and the great definition when applying d [...]

    4. Good YA book for boys. Had fascinating scientific information but a good story as well. Combining insight and emtions with action. Supposedly it's the Sixth in the Jupiter series written by this writer.
