A man (Andy Andrews, the author, I suppose) goes through life meeting an unidentified man known solely as "Jones" throughout pivotal moments in his life.
I read through the book continually wondering if "all of this really happened", or if I was reading a novel.
Andy Andrews has a very gregarious, open way of writing (and speaking, for that matter) and The Noticer is an enjoyable, easy read, with depth and truth both hidden, yet totally obvious, like sea shells poking out of the sand; you know they're there, so you recognize them when you see them.
It lacks no humor, leaves the reader in a state of wonder. An appropriate "out loud" read to the family or a gathering; perhaps a good "supplement" book for inspirational reading.
I give it a 3 out of 5 for being perfectly sweet, knowing it's target audience (Christian, inspirational readers, the open-minded) and nailing exactly what it was aimed for.
It lacks 2 stars for neglecting.... "muchness", as the Hatter would say.
What did you think of this review?
Fun to Read
