Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For all of us who came to know, and love, Edward Stanton in 600 Hours of Edward it is great to get reaquainted with him again. However, it is fair to say that Edward's life is not in great shape when we meet him again - Dr Buckley, his long term therapist, has retired, he has lost his job, been diagnosed with diabetes and even his "Dragnet" tapes are broken. Plus, he is missing neighbour Donna, who has remarried and moved away. Then, Donna contacts him to say that her son Kyle is troubled and has been expelled from school and Edward sets out on a trip to see them.
During this book, Edward has to deal with difficult behaviour from Kyle, come to terms with his father's death and is even faced with the possibility of finding love. Edward is a fantastic character, a forty two year old who sees the world a little differently because of his Asperger's Syndrome, he is often very literal, but always a good friend. To be honest, I would not read this before reading the first book about Edward, as the relationships with his friends and family will make better sense if you know the history between them. These novels are a delight though and if you do consider reading them, you will not be disappointed.
