    A 39-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, Edward Stanton lives alone on a rigid schedule in the Montana town where he grew up. His carefully constructed routine includes tracking his most common waking time (7:38 a.m.), refusing to start his therapy sessions even a minute before the appointed hour (10:00 a.m.), and watching one episode of the 1960s cop show Dragnet each night (10:00 p.m.). But when a single mother and her nine-year-old son move in across the street, Edward’s timetable comes undone....

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of 600 Hours of Edward to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version but the narration brought Edward to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 600 Hours of Edward?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Edwards letters of complaint and how they evolved toward the end. I also enjoyed the evolution of his relationships. There were far too many memorable moments throughout this book to highlight any one in particular.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Of all the narrations of all the audiobooks I have ever listened to, Luke Daniels surpassed them all! I feel the narration was critical to this story in particular to capture the many quirks and eccentricities of Edward. Luke Daniels nailed Edwards character in addition to the other characters of this book. He did an extraordinary job, even down to the slightest fluctuations of voice such as Edward remarking on words that he loved, which were expressed with pure delight. You could feel every one of Edwards highs and lows throughout the book. I enjoyed every second of it!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The letter from his father!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the type of book that comes around once every ten years. It is masterfully written. It is technical and creative writing at it's very best. Although the ending was superb, I grieved when it was over as I never wanted it to end. There was so much depth and humanity to the characters of this book and I genuinely cared about every one of them. I especially adored Edward. I wish I could be his neighbor and friend.
