A 39-year-old with Asperger's syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, Edward Stanton lives alone on a rigid schedule in the Montana town where he grew up. His carefully constructed routine includes tracking his most common waking time (7:38 a.m.), refusing to start his therapy sessions even a minute before the appointed hour (10:00 a.m.), and watching one episode of the 1960s cop show Dragnet each night (10:00 p.m.).

But when a single mother and her nine-year-old son move in across the street, Edward's timetable comes undone. Over the course of a momentous 600 hours, he opens up to his new neighbors and confronts old grievances with his estranged parents. Exposed to both the joys and heartaches of friendship, Edward must ultimately decide whether to embrace the world outside his door or retreat to his solitary ways.

Heartfelt and hilarious, this moving novel will appeal to fans of Daniel Keyes' classic Flowers for Algernon and to any reader who loves an underdog.

    " Just adored this book about 600 hours in the life of Edward, a 27 year old with Asperger's. You will, too. "

    " I liked it but I can't give it the rave reviews that others have. It's a sweet story told from the viewpoint of a man with OCD and Asberger's, but it felt a little too similar to other books I've read along the same themes. It isn't unique or enlightening, but it is a sweet story. "

    " This is the story of Edward, who has Aspergers, and leads a very structured, organised life. That is until a single mum and her son move in across the road and suddenly unpredictable things start to happen. He has to deal with a lot of change over the 600 hours of his life and the story is about how he comes to terms with this. I watch The Big Bang Theory, and when I read Edward's story I hear it read in Sheldon's voice. A lovely story which I really enjoyed. "

    " I borrowed this book for free on my Kindle through Amazon Prime and I'm so glad I did. Having previously read and enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, I thought I would like to read another book written from the point of view of a man with Asperger's Syndrome (and in this case, OCD as well). This book and this character drew me in and gave me a feel for what it might be like to view the world in that very different way. I look forward to reading the sequel, which is soon to be released.
