The Rembis Report & Other Fascinating Topics

An observation of being, this is a diary of the world around us and how I discovered that life is the most fragile thing there is. The Rembis Report is a series of monthly email newsletters I sent to friends and acquaintances over a three year period with my firsthand account of attempting to adapt to a flurry of changing circumstances.

Told through top shelf sarcasm and peppered with personal photography, it is a window into my thought process and may help explain how I became who I am.  If that kind of thing is important to you.

FROM THE BACK COVER

From time travel to gluons to baby squirrels, Mike Rembis analyzed the world around him. His raw ability to see people and places as they really are, in all their absurdity, crafts a witty vision of daily life. And the cathartic revelation that fate is procured by choice.

Sometimes you just need to move. One day he did, just because he could. Back to a place he once lived, then on to a new frontier. A new age vagabond at heart, with wife and pets by his side, Mike embarked on a journey just for a change of scene. He got so much more. 

Through observations, photographs, and thought-provoking commentary, his zest for life and unabashed self-assuredness reveal an honest cultural exposure to the world as he viewed it in the mid 2000’s. The unexpectedly divergent stories dovetail into a masterful memoir that shows how the psyche of a fellow human being is formed, and how we end up where we do.

His life experience shows that deep down, while we may want to disconnect, we want to stay connected. And that even when you do not find what you seek, you still discover something of value.

REVIEWS

Astrid Iustulin for Readers’ Favorite

We often hear that if you want to keep your correspondence, you should not write emails but letters because it is much easier to delete and forget the former rather than the latter. That may be true, but Mike Rembis’ The Rembis Report is an exception in this regard.

This book collects the emails that Rembis wrote to about 200 people between 2006 and 2009 and the replies he received. In those years, the author was away from home and wanted to keep in touch with his friends. The result is that The Rembis Report collects XXXV Volumes in which Rembis recounts his travels, the works for the screen that he was working on, events he experienced, and observations on various topics. In short, The Rembis Report is a very original and entertaining book.
The first thing that came to my mind while reading Mike Rembis’ book was that it was a great idea to choose emails to communicate with other people. Here the recipients are many, so in the pages dedicated to their answers, you can feel the energy of many people and not of a single one. Moreover, the variety of themes that Rembis deals with makes The Rembis Report an engaging read. What intrigued me the most was reading Rembis’ considerations on The Secret, while the saddest pages are those dedicated to the fire that caused the death of his sister and to Ruperto’s accident. Overall, The Rembis Report is a book I thoroughly enjoyed, and I hope many other readers will be equally thrilled.

I’m very honoured to have been the first person to read your entire book, it was certainly very enjoyable for me.

When I finished reading The Rembis Report the emotion I felt was that sense of satisfaction that comes from having read a good book. It was mentally refreshing I think, because the various stories were often so unexpectedly divergent, but not out of place at all. I was reminded of the days when my dad was still alive and my family and I would visit our holiday home in Barbados. It’s in the countryside and we don’t have the internet or a television there so you take books you know you’ll like and really get to enjoy reading them. I felt like that.

I enjoyed your Report. I love the way you describe the people, places, and events in your life.

Your writing style, as with your humor, is droll. I enjoyed it, as it’s that kind of writing and humor I relate to most. Your observations on life, and the humans we share this planet with, were fun to hear. You have skill, you have the forum, and I think you’ll do well with this. The length was too short, as I wanted to know more about all that was happening in your life!

Thank you for choosing me to read your book.

I enjoyed reading your book. I had to get used to the style you used. As someone outside your country, your book gave me an honest cultural exposure which I really liked. The descriptions became so vivid that I could imagine them. As I read further the book became more and more interesting. The best part is that as I read along I felt like I’m reading mails from a friend. Once the reader gets used to the writing style, the reading experience is great.
