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.

Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measure…and they matter forever. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages. More Details Original Title. Alabama United States.

I'm going to go against popular opinion and state that this wasn't a very good book. Sure, there were a few good life lessons included in its pages. However, the writing was mediocre and the story telling was terrible. The characters were unbelievable, both in dialogue and action.

I was surprised that the characters didn't punch Jones for delivering these messages that go against the grain of their lives. While the messages were good ones, it was unbelievable that people would accept these messa I'm going to go against popular opinion and state that this wasn't a very good book.

While the messages were good ones, it was unbelievable that people would accept these messages right off the bat. No real contemplation, no real struggles, just quick acceptance of an old man's "noticing. Jones states that if you want people to like you, think about what it is that they would change about you. Some of the things I agree with, like reducing or eliminating cursing in your speech when talking to others or being more polite.

But other things I can't agree with, like changing how you dress so that other people will like you more. Change how I dress so people like me? I think not. Some of this is individuality, not something that should be changed so that you can win a popularity contest.

Overall, I felt preached at. The story wasn't very good and the lessons were driven home very forcefully. Not my cup of tea. View all 4 comments.

Jan 21, Lionel Valdellon rated it it was ok. The Noticer by Andy Andrews is pages of important life lessons wrapped within a feel-good, inspirational novelette.

The lessons are thinly-veiled homilies spoken by the main character Jones to a cast of unfortunately flat, characters who barely resemble real people with real dialogue. The book will appeal to mothers, grandmothers, fans of inspirational literature, and anyone who en The Noticer by Andy Andrews is pages of important life lessons wrapped within a feel-good, inspirational novelette.

The book will appeal to mothers, grandmothers, fans of inspirational literature, and anyone who enjoys Hallmark greeting cards. The barebones story is about an elderly, white-haired man named Jones who appears in a small town over the course of many years, always helping people gain a broader perspective on their trials and their blessings.

For example: A man is saved from worry when Jones reminds him to focus only on what can be controlled. I have nothing against this type of inspirational material, mind you. After all, the characters are throwaway paper cutouts. Try it out. Feb 14, Jeanette Blackson rated it it was amazing. I was kind of hesitant to read it as I had not read anything by Andy Andrews, but once I picked it up I could not put it down.

Andy is a great author and this book was an easy read. It was a shorter book only pages but had a lot of good content and some great life lesson This is the first book I have read by author Andy Andrews and it will NOT be the last! It was a shorter book only pages but had a lot of good content and some great life lessons.

I am still not sure if the story was a true story or not, but in the book Andy was the narrator and he is telling the story of Jones. At the beginning Andy is a homeless twenty-something with a bad look on life and not much going for him.

Jones an older homeless man befriends him and has him start reading books about great people in history and teaches him how to be better liked so people will enjoy being around him. After Andy's attitude change things start looking up for him and Jones just disappears. About a decade later Jones is back in the picture and is helping others with their everyday problems one couple is on the verge of divorce The book goes on to tell the stories of these individuals and what impact Jones has made on their "perspective.

Feb 18, Rosalie rated it did not like it. This book oversimplifies life's struggles with a "pray it away" mentality. It also seems to plagiarize "The 5 love languages" by Gary Chapman with a weak attempt to cover its plagiarism by changing "languages" to "dialects" and taking one language away receiving gifts.

Jones is a boring character with no depth or redeeming quality, which makes it very unbelievable that so many people are willing to just let this know-it-all stranger tell them that their very real life struggles are just a "mat This book oversimplifies life's struggles with a "pray it away" mentality.

Jones is a boring character with no depth or redeeming quality, which makes it very unbelievable that so many people are willing to just let this know-it-all stranger tell them that their very real life struggles are just a "matter of perspective". I was especially disturbed by the chapter about the man with mental illness that was considering suicide. It perpetuates the stigma of mental illness as something that is the sufferers fault rather than an actual illness.

Decades of mental health research and Andy Andrews had the answer all along? And what is up with Andy Andrews trying to sell me his previous book in this book?? I struggled finishing this book because I despised it so much and ended up just hate reading it in the end.

This is a great book for people that want to feel validated in their privileged lives that their struggles are somehow synonymous with the struggles of those with less privilege. The Author Andy Andrews came and spoke at our kids' school and we all walked away with this book. It took me a few years to dig it out, but I am glad I did. This is definitely a short little gem of a book that I read in an afternoon. The Noticer has a vibe very similar to Mitch Albom. It is less story oriented, but more self help with key words of wisdom.

I was immediately struck by the lessons it tries to teach in regards to noticing people's characteristics, noticing ways people love or need l The Author Andy Andrews came and spoke at our kids' school and we all walked away with this book. I was immediately struck by the lessons it tries to teach in regards to noticing people's characteristics, noticing ways people love or need love - in particular your spouse.

We do all speak and need different things and it is a great resource to learn and pay attention to those needs.
