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.

At first I was flummoxed....

What did you love best about Edward Adrift?

about Edward Stanton in this book. I had just finished "600 Hours of Edward" and in "Edward Adrift" Edward seemed to be so much more exuberant (l love the word exuberant). This new Edward with his lively energy was hard to figure out until I got a little further along in the book. I think the narrator, Luke Daniels, did an excellent job of show the listeners the changes Edward was feeling in his life through his narration. When later in the book, Edward thought he wanted to go back to his isolated, regimented (I love the word regimented) life I felt as if the narrator took the lively energy out of his voice to show Edward in a much more complacent (I love the word complacent) place in his life. LOVED this book... LOVED "600 Hours of Edward"... really hope Craig Lancaster finishes a third book about Edward Stanton.

Both Books Are Amazing

This is the follow-up to 600 Hours of Edward. I would recommend reading that one first. It is not strictly necessary for your enjoyment of Edward Adrift, but it will make it much better. Both books are amazing, as my title says. Heartfelt and funny. You will fall in love with all the characters. Very "feel-good hardship".

The narrator is also amazing. I would recommend reading anything Luke Daniel narrates. He has not disappointed me yet and I have listened to several books he's narrated. In fact, I have specifically chosen books to listen to because he narrated them.

If you liked these books, you may like the Rosie Project.
