Book Review: The Noticer by Andy Andrews

I just finished reading a book about a man named Jones. This book will have you glued from page one until the end. It's not like other christian living books where they give you scripture and read it and they tell you what you possible could glean from that.

This book however, allows you to see a man, who through faith and love, show us an example of what Jesus might have actually been like. I think the minute I knew I was drawn in to this book was on page one where you read about a 23 year old young man who is crying his eyes out. Jones walks along the beach, comes up to him and says, "Come into the light." That statement right there hooked me right on in.

Here is the synopsis from the back of the book:

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.

You can purchase your own copy of this book from Amazon which is where I always purchase my books!
