When the big brown UPS truck showed up, backed into my driveway, and handed me a box for this month’s Thomas Nelson review, I was so excited. I could not wait to open the delicious pages of the newest Andy Andrews book, and read The Noticer.
I settled in to read this delightful little book, thinking what a great gift it would make. Beautifully told, it is the story of Jones, a gentleman drifter who shows up in the coastal town of
Jones had the simple ability to show people a completely different way of looking at life, their problems, their situations. When they were at the end of their rope, their marriage, or in crisis, there was Jones, quietly challenging their thinking.
Jones would tell the folks, “Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective.” He got people thinking, reading. He reminds me of Charlie “Tremendous” Jones famous saying, “You’ll be the same person five years from now, except for the people that you meet and the books that you read.”
He would share some perspective with the stuck folks, and it would get them thinking in a new direction, with action following.
I thoroughly enjoyed most of The Noticer. It was particularly useful in looking at the situations we have been going through, a cross country move, a failed business, the astronomical debt we face from that failed business. I love the idea of perspective, of changing yours, being thankful, of expanding your mind with great books. Recognizing the 5 most influential people in your life is a great thing. I agree with all of those things.
That said, as I read The Noticer, there were several portions of it that I had an uneasy feeling about. Reading quickly through the book and enjoying the lessons of it, I did not stop and fully analyze what bothered me. The things that did stand out, would absolutely ruin the book for anyone who has yet to read it, and so I will refrain for now.
While I enjoyed the issue of perspective, I certainly would NOT recommend getting your theology from The Noticer!
