The Noticer

The Noticer, by Andy Andrews - "I am a noticer," he said. "It is my gift. While others may be able to sing well or run fast, I notice things that other people overlook." (6)

In this brilliant and life altering journey, Andrews introduces Jones, an elderly man with white hair, a battered brown suitcase (of mysterious contents) wearing his trusty leather flip flops, travels around different parts of town and breathes new life into those who have lost all hope and zest for life. Jones helps all troubled souls realign their lives by giving them a bit of perspective. Andrews uses a blend of story-telling and inspiration to help the reader see parts of themselves in the lives of his fictitious characters. Each short journey is inspiring, magical and thought provoking. Jones stirs up thoughts of a personal Jesus traveling the land and offering sound advice and wisdom to lost and hopeless souls. "We are so caught up in fear and regret, that hope seems a foolish endeavor. Proof of hope, however, is not only possible; it is an overlooked law of the universe." (83)

Andrews gives examples and highly achievable solutions to life's daunting problems. This book will inspire the reader to question his/her motives in life and motivate you to leave the fruitless path that you are traveling in the dust. The Noticer will force you to ask yourself life's complicated questions. This book might change your life. Forever.
