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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 2/15/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/31/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/21/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 1/10/2014

    " Tragic yet endearing and funny. You'll root for Edward! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Minor | 1/5/2014

    " This is a good book showing the daily life of an individual of someone with Asperger's syndrome and the lack of relationship with his father because of his disability. He only communicates with his father through his father's attorney who puts his support of his only son over his head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Stymans samaniego | 12/25/2013

    " I enjoyed reading this book for the most part. Some spots were a bit slow and repetive, which is exactly how they should be in this story. The author did a great job putting the reader into Edwards shoes. The ending warmed my heart! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 12/8/2013

    " It was actually amusing to see how it is to live with OCD.this book was also sad in the events that happened to him,yet I was happy that he started to let people in... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Viv JM | 12/5/2013

    " Engaging, warm, funny at times. The main character of Edward (who has Aspergers & OCD) was very sensitively drawn. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 eric | 12/2/2013

    " This is a very well written book, it grabs you from the start and you don't want to put it down. Some emotional ups and downs, a very interesting book, I would love to know what people with more experience of the condition think though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Girish Nayyar | 11/27/2013

    " It's a simple, easy to follow read, but perhaps not so much of my type. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reid | 11/9/2013

    " Couldn't help, when reading of lawyer Jay L. Lamb, of picturing Walter White's lawyer! A good intro to Lancaster, and his other books are better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodie | 9/25/2013

    " Easy to read, but a great insight into the world of those suffering from Asperger's syndrome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 5/11/2013

    " Just finished this book and I recommend it. Loved Edward and wish him well. An interesting slice of life from the perspective of someone suffering from OCD and Aspergers syndrome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ming Siu | 5/5/2013

    " I had a bunch of work today, but I accomplished far less than I should have. I blame this book, which I finished in less than half a day. It's that captivating. And it truly moves you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 5/2/2013

    " Fast read. Started a bit slowly but it got to me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 3/31/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book- smartly written. Takes you into the daily mental repetitions of someone battling OCD, but didn't exhaust me. Character was real (and often raw), but you wanted to see where he was headed. Wasn't predictable- read in two nights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 3/30/2013

    " Edward as an adult lives with Aspberger's syndrome I find it fascinating how Edward's mind works. Will read the sequel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 3/21/2013

    " Not a bad book. Slow start for me though. It is interesting to get viewpoints thru the mind of a man with aspergers syndrome. still undecided if I will read the second book. But the main character, Edward, might make reading the second book worth it as it is hard not to feel for him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 11/21/2012

    " good book but if you can, read this one first and then the edward adrify. if you read efward adrift first...i wouldnt bother resding the other one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trudy Carlson | 8/14/2012

    " I wasn't sure about the topic but decided that what the heck! it might be worth a read. I couldn't put it down. It was informative, funny and a darn good read. "
