    inside of him

    And it seemed that the experience of rewriting Air Chrysalis had begun to change something inside of him.

    Can I say "inside him" here?

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't. "Inside him" sounds more literal to me - as if we were talking about his gall bladder or something -- though you probably won't find that distinction in a grammar book.
