Publisher's Summary

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.

I will always love listening to the life of Edward

I always love getting to hear more about Edwards life. I am really looking forward to a 3rd, 4th, and even 5th book! (Narrated by Luke Daniels of course, he makes listening much more enjoyable.)

Loved it!

If you could sum up Edward Adrift in three words, what would they be?

I listened to this book directly after listening to 600 Hours of Edward and my first reaction was that the narrator was reading it slightly differently. He changed some of Edwards fluctuations a bit and it bothered me. But I quickly stopped noticing that and fell in love with Edward again! I loved the book!

A good read

I enjoyed getting in touch with the foibles and adventures of someone with Asperger's syndrome. The book was written in the first person, which was perfect for the job. The reader was believable.

Nice addition

Enjoyed this book very much. It is a sequel to 600 Hours Of Edward Andrade the ending of the first one not seem so empty.

Even better than the first book

I thought 600 Hours of Edward was good; it was, but Edward Adrift gives further insight of how one, though smart but developmentally disabled, struggles to live in our so-called normal world. In this book Edward finds his purpose and happiness. His struggle and successful therapy pays off. Yay Edward! A very good read from a very good narrator!
However, I would recommend reading 600 Hours of Edward first.

More to love.

Edward is wonderful. If you loved him in his first 600 hours (the first book), you'll LOVE him, in this! (You should listen to the first book before this one.) This is the story of Edward, 3 years after the end of the first book, and how he navigates life & (yes!) love, & finally asserts his sovereignty. I didn't want it to end. Yay, Edward!

Not as good as the 1st one but still ok

This sequel brings back Edward and some of his connections, while adding new ones. Edward changes and grows, which didn't always seem realistic but was encouraging to hear. Luke Daniels again does a terrific job narrating with a character who has a limited range of expression.
