Book Review - The Noticer by Andy Andrews
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Noticer. The author, Andy Andrews, weaves a tale about an old man who changes people’s lives by changing “their perspective”. It was a beautifully woven story that enables the reader to read the life changing tales and bring the concepts home to help enlighten their lives. It will make you think about your own life and how you perceive it. Jones – who this story is about – helps everyone from couples to singles to suicidal to downtrodden. He is friends to everyone even though they might not know him until he first talks to them. Once he talks to them, he has everyone’s attention and they hang on his every word listening to the wisdom he doles out to anyone who needs it. He also seems to just be there at the right moment when someone needs to hear the wisdom he dispenses. And when he leaves for good, he leaves the town with a remembrance of himself so they will always remember his tales and how to lead a life with perspective.
