The Removers by Andrew Meredith
After his is fired from his job as a professor, Andrews’s family limps along in life. Feeling despair of his parents Andrews falls in and out of trouble, skips round in relationships and hangs out with his childhood friends.
Broke in more ways than one, Andrew moves back home to the neighborhood he grew up in and takes a job with his father as “Removes” taking the dead away. Working with his dad, he begins to see his dad from a new light and starts to understand that sometimes a person is more then you see. Can Andrew come to peace with everything that happen and start living life?
This Memoir is was amazingly interesting and really easy to relate too. A lot of people have unhappy parents and dark secrets, but family is family. I have always found myself thinking about what it would be like working with death everyday like they do in this book and that kept me reading, but I found myself wanting to know his story.
This book is dark and emotional, making me tear up at times as well as seeing Andrew as a brave man telling his story of handling the dead and making up with his family.
The Cover: Is one of my favorites, i love black and white covers as well as simple ones.
3 out and 5 stars.
