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 a.m.), and watching one episode of the 1960s cop show Dragnet each night (10 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.… (plus d'informations)

Listened to this one in the car. Really enjoyed it. Edward developed nicely as a character throughout the story. ( )

I enjoyed this book, however, I expected it to funnier.
I had no laugh out loud moments but did have a smile.
If I had read it before the Rosie project I might of enjoyed it more. ( )

A well told story of a man with Asperger's Syndrome. The condition is presented in a way that is both enlightening and sympathetic. You will find yourself rooting for Edward and being impressed with his ability to understand and manage his situation. ( )

Just started this book and I love it already! For psychologists, social workers, and wannabes, this is a must-read. I am fascinated by Edward and his meticulous way of living (Aspergers, OCD, think Rain Man) and I will readily confess that there are days when I would like to write a letter of complaint that will never be sent. ;). Thanks for the suggestion, Carol Anne Shelly!! ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book about a 30-something-year-old man on the autistic spectrum with OCD who gradually manages to associate with other people and give up some of his quirks. Lots of humor and character development. Plus it's set in Billings, MT, so I could relate to the weather. ( )
