Publisher's Summary

A new story of common wisdom from the best-selling 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.

    Story
    "Prospective is the word"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would only recommend this book to ages 8-20 year old.If you listened to Focus on the Family's - Wits End, then you would get the style immediately, but my children are all grown. You would only need to read the title of know the entire message of the book. It didn't have enough depth for me. I wanted to stop in the first chapter, however, I friend suggested it, and I thought it would have a surprise ending. But not really. The message was the same throughout the book and there wasn't any need to keep repeating it by changing the characters. His style lends itself to preteens up to college bound students.I thought the title needed to be reworked, at least to hold the read/listeners attention.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Andy Andrews? Why or why not?

    No, I did not care for his style of writing. He was predictable and a little tiresome for me.


    What three words best describe Andy Andrews’s voice?

    Hie voice seemed forced as the Noticer, yet pleasant when not the Noticer, and grating and soft at times. I was not a fan of his voice throughout the entire book, maybe if other people shared the characters with him it could have made it more interesting.


    Do you think The Noticer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No-because the message was in the title. Could have been delivered in a pamphlet.


    Any additional comments?

    Title was too simple and needed more development, but then again, so did the story.

    "Wonderfully Inspiring"
    What made the experience of listening to The Noticer the most enjoyable?

    The book was very thought provoking and inspiring.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is not a book that I wanted to listen to in one sitting because I want to continue listening and gaining more insight from the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to everyone.

    "The Noticer"

    I enjoyed the ideas in this book and the reminder to myself to slow down and notice what I have.

    "On my top ten recommended books to read"

    Andy Andrews is one of my favorite authors and this is one of his best books. Why? For me, it brought all the other books together and helped me understand the why behind his other books.

    This is a classic and is on my top ten books to read - Right up there with QBQ, Dave Ramsey's books, Dan Miller's books, and everything by Zig Ziglar.

    "Great Book"

    I think the leasons were laid out in a very entertaining way.I listened to it twice. Yes as a reader he lost voice character a time or two, but the story was good.

    "Noticing"

    Mr. Andrews unfolds this wonderful lesson in an easy format. Learn from someone else's mistakes and you won't need to make them all yourself. I've listened to this 3 or 4 times - maybe I'm noticing things a little more. Wonderful!

    "Good thoughts but Repetitive"

    The main character appears as a know it all kind of guy which annoyed me all the way. The book has some helpful flashes that could have been summarized into 30 minutes. Dont waste a credit on it, better pay for it.

    "Disappointing"

    I was extremely disapointed with this book. The central character (the noticer) always had some helpful advice and came off as a know it all. The "inspirational" tidbits, which the author has happily included and taken credit for, originate from other authors and earlier books (ie "The Five Love Languages"). Although the information and advice given by "the noticer" is valuable, I was put off by the blatant plagiarism.

    "Simple and Powerful...."

    A great book and to get us to see things in a larger context. It inspired me to become more empathetic and patient with others.

    "Wonderful"

    Andy Andrews has outdone himself again on this book. I love the layout and the character Jones.
