Have you read The Noticer by Andy Andrews? It’s an inspirational book with lots of little ‘lightning-bolt’ moments sprinkled between the pages. I quite enjoyed it – it reminded me of Mitch Albom’s books.
And is it just me or do you often give the characters in a book a ‘voice’? When I read, I often ‘hear’ the words being spoken (okay, I’m not hallucinating yet). The physical and emotional attributes of the character converge into a voice-over of sorts. In ‘The Noticer’, the instant I heard the character of Jones speak, guess who came to mind ? Morgan Freeman. If there was a movie version, he’d be terrific to play this role.
