The Noticer - Book Review


I was so pleased to receive the opportunity to review this book, from the Thomas Nelson: Book Review Bloggers company. I was looking forward to reading it and let me tell you I was not disappointed.

Here is a product description direct from Amazon:
A new story of common wisdom from the bestselling author of The Traveler's Gift.

Orange Beach, Alabama is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems - marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses.

Fortunately, when things look the darkest - a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up. An elderly man with white hair, of indiscriminate age and race, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and leather flip flops carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul. Communicating what he calls "a little perspective," Jones explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things that others miss. "Your time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely," he says. "Don't squander your words or your thoughts. Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measure…and they matter forever."

Jones speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what we can do about it.

Like The Traveler's Gift, The Noticer is a unique narrative is a blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a "noticer" just might change a person's life forever.

- I loved everything about this book, as a matter of fact I read it in one sitting. It flowed from one page to the next, magnetically drawing you to need more of it. The writing is excellent and some how ... genuine and heart felt, not at all pretentious. Some of the "lessons" taught were so obvious that it is obvious we over look them in life. Sometimes we need a good shake and a kick in the rear...and this book totally does this! It was absolutely fantastic, and left me wanting to be a better person. I will for sure be sharing this at Christmas time for anyone that needs a little uplifting! Definite MUST HAVE! 5 out of 5 for certain!
