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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
