Publisher's Summary

Change keeps stalking Edward Stanton. He and his new wife, Sheila, have retreated to his small house in Montana after an unsuccessful attempt at operating a motel in Colorado. That failure has left wounds, especially for Sheila, and now they face a bigger challenge: pregnancy and impending parenthood.
Edward begins penning notes to the child (ever precise, he refers to the gestating being as "Cellular Stanton"), as he navigates married life with Sheila, who is unhappy and unfulfilled in Montana; a work partnership with his friend Scott Shamwell, whose own life is teetering; and the emergence of a long-buried family secret, and the effect of this revelation on his relationship with his overbearing mother.
Even as Edward's world expands, he must confront questions about whom to let in, how much to give, the very definition of family, the fragility of hope, and the expanses of love.

No spoilers.

Loved the book. Full of Edward's unique views of his world and of course humour that make Lancaster's first two books such a joy to read.
I understand that Luke Daniels wasn't available for this audiobook and David Otey does do a great job... But it took me a good few chapters to get used to the change in readings styles. I ended up mostly reading this book instead as I feel he is unfortunately not quite up to his predecessor.
If Daniels is ever able to come back to read this I would definitely buy it even though I have this copy and a kindle copy. And of course I hope if there is a 4th instalment and we see a return to Daniels' fine work. We can hope...

I hate to say it was not up to par

I have LOVED all of Craig Lancaster's novels (can imagine Ed questioning why the same word should be more meaningful simply because it was typed in all caps). This installment was a HUGE (there I go again) disappointment simply because it felt like just that: an installment. "Blah, blah, blah...this is what would happen if our couple were to get pregnant and we would introduce some more characters for future installments." As much of a fan as I am, I will read reviews before downloading the next "Edward" (where they obviously lead with the new daughter and her coming to terms with the mildly odd dad). There was nothing "new" here (as opposed to the first Edward, which was magical). Dare I say it: almost boring. If you have not read any of the previous books in this series, don't do this one (it assumes you know and love and understand the main character from previous novels...otherwise he's simply annoying). If you have read the previous books, prepare to be underwhelmed.

Hugely disappointed.

Would you try another book written by Craig Lancaster or narrated by David Otey?

I listened to the two prequel books to this one, 600 hours of Edward and Edward Adrift and loved them both. They are written from the perspective, and in the voice of Edward a man with Asperger's syndrome. So i was happy to buy this, the third book in the series. Unfortunately, i didn't notice that they have changed narrator, and the voice of "Edward". This just didn't work for me. Like changing the actor for the main character in a TV show and hoping viewers don't notice. Couldn't listen to it. I will read the book instead.

Any additional comments?

I thought this was going to be my least favourite Edward book. The first two had been so fantastic, how could any author keep up that level of magnificence. Boy was I wrong. I have laughed out loud, I have wept, I have sobbed, (loudly and with a great deal of snot). How does he do it? Craig Lancaster is a genius. I have learnt more from Edward than I ever did in school. A truly wonderful emotional roller coaster of a ride. There simply aren't enough superlatives, and I do not possess Craig Lancaster''s eloquence or exquisite turn of phrase. I not only highly recommend that every single person read this book, it really ought to be on the national curriculum. My heart is broken that this is the end of my journey with Edward. But he, Sheila, Scott, Hugo, Raj, Kyle, Donna and even his parents and Jay Lamb will remain in my heart forever. Thank you Mr Lancaster, I salute you and bow to your brilliance. 5 stars doesn't even begin to touch what this book deserves. Writing at its best.
