"It's been a year of upheaval for Edward Stanton, a forty-two-year-old with Asperger's syndrome. He's lost his job. His trusted therapist has retired. His best friends have moved away. And even his nightly ritual of watching Dragnet reruns has been disrupted. All of this change has left Edward, who lives his life on a rigid schedule, completely flummoxed. But when his friend Donna calls with news that her son Kyle is in trouble, Edward leaves his comfort zone in Billings, Montana, and drives to visit them in Boise, where he discovers Kyle has morphed from a sweet kid into a sullen adolescent. Inspired by dreams of the past, Edward goes against his routine and decides to drive to a small town in Colorado where he once spent a summer with his father -- bringing Kyle along as his road trip companion. The two argue about football and music along the way, and amid their misadventures, they meet an eccentric motel owner who just might be the love of Edward's sheltered life -- if only he can let her."--Amazon.com, viewed April 22, 2013.… (lisätietoja)

A compelling, hilarious, moving sequel to 600 HOURS OF EDWARD, Craig Lancaster's EDWARD ADRIFT picks up Edward's story three years later. His autistic title character narrator is coping with some major changes in his once highly regimented life, and embarks on an extended road trip from his home in Billings across the West and back. Along the way he bonds with a troubled pubescent boy, meets a woman, tries to come to terms with his memories of his recently departed father, and more. I mean this is one helluva trip. I don't know how Craig Lancaster manages to get so completely inside the head of this character, with all the quirky Asperger's OCD tics and habits, but he does, and I am so looking forward to reading the third book in the Edward trilogy. Stay tuned. Very, very highly recommended.

Better than the first book (Which I found very repetitive)! Edward has a few adventures and the story kind of zig zags as it goes. ( )

I started this book today, and then got sucked in and finished this book today also. Well, housework is dull, and can wait. Edward is neither.
Loved this book. ( )

I received this book from NetGalley.com

Oh Edward, I missed you. Lancaster returns with another look into Edward's life. It was great to see the progress that Edward has made and how far he has come since the first book. In this book, Edward was faced with some very real "adult" obstacles and he moved his way through, even making some of the dreaded left hand turns. Lancaster infuses humor and warmth into this book and I was glad to be back in Edward's world. ( )
