That’s the flummoxed state of Edward Stanton, a 42-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome. His job, his therapist, and his best friends are all gone. Even his nightly ritual of watching Dragnet reruns has short-circuited.
But a call from his friend Donna in Idaho, telling him that her son Kyle is in trouble, launches Edward from his rigidly scheduled existence in Billings, Montana, to the open road. He and Kyle, a sweet little boy turned sullen adolescent, debate football, music, and bodily functions (“Why do you pee so much?” Kyle asks). All the while, inspired by dreams of the past, Edward tries to make peace with his life - and when he meets an eccentric motel owner, perhaps open it to love.

Ah..Edward. I was so glad to revisit Edward to see how much he had grown and changed (and not!) and how he was able to cope with his "shitburger" of a year!
If you like 600 Hours of Edward, you will love getting back into Edward's head again.
Edward is a 40+ year-old with Asperger's. He is high functioning, and has high self esteem. The compulsive traits of his Asperger's comes through and it's hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. There's a coming of age story within the story. Not sentimental. Great Book.
I liked the continuation of Edward's life as described in this book. His relationships with others are more meaningful and he has learned mindfulness. I cannot help but like Edward, quirks and all, because he has such a good heart. He is working so hard on himself and is so honest about his emotions and feelings. His insights reveal valuable life lessons. A very pleasant read, indeed.
It took me awhile to get past the character's first idiosyncrasies that introduced the reader to the condition. After that, I found it an enjoyable book and I liked the story.
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
Still had the same favor as the first book!
I think I still liked the first book better, but this one was a close second. Seemed like it ended kind of fast. Still very enjoyable!
No, I just didn't get this book. I thought it would be like Against Medical Advice (Patterson/Friedman) which was a true story and fascinating. But this was just plain repetitive and, for me, could not hold my interest.
