Recently I finished the book The Noticer by Andy Andrews. The book takes place near a beach town. You are first introduced to Andy who is homeless and lives under the pier. He meets a mysterious man named "Jones" not Mr. Jones just Jones. Jones has a way of making people look at their situations with a new "perspective". He has encounters with many characters throughout the book showing them new perspective.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a short 177 pages but it definitely leaves you thinking. If you read Andy Andrews The Travelers Gift this is equally worthwhile. I had a hard time putting this book down and wound up reading it all in an afternoon. This is a definite must buy!
