The Noticer by Andy Andrews

image The Noticer is the tale of a small gulf coast town that is visited by a mysterious stranger. Who this man is and where he has come from, no one knows. He to appears and disappears suddenly and seems to know about the lives of everyone in town, often appearing during a crisis. Whomever he interacts with is changed for the better by his probing questions and insightful advice.

This book was an enjoyable piece of fiction with a creative storyline. But more than that, every chapter is potentially life-changing for the reader. The questions that “Jones” asks of each character and the bits of wisdom he shares invite the reader to ponder his own life and relationships.

“What is it about me that other people could change if they could?”

“Whatever you focus upon, increases.”

“A true friend brings out the best in you. Do yours?”

“It’s time to let your history stop controlling your destiny.”

This novel has given me quite a few nuggets to “chew on.” I recommend this book for just the right balance of light fiction and inspiration.

I received this book free as part of the BookSneeze Blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review and these opinions are my own.
