    In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Coreyography to be better than the print version?

    I love listening to the actual celebrity's voice telling the story of their life. Corey told the story of his life very well and kept my interest to the point where I couldn't wait to get back in the car and listen more. He even imitated Michael Jackson, Corey Haim, his wife, and others very well. Really enjoyed this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked hearing about the ups and downs of his life...how he would find himself successful one minute and the next down and out. I loved how he never gave up.


    Have you listened to any of Corey Feldman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first work of Corey Feldman that I have listed to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I feel like I know Corey Feldman and I guess that's the point of the book. After it was over, I wanted more.

    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    What made the experience of listening to Beyond Belief the most enjoyable?

    This was a fascinating book about a mainstream cult that nobody seems to be investigating. I can hardly believe this takes place in our own backyard. As soon as I finished reading this book, I couldn't help but seek out Mike Rinder's blog and look at You Tube videos of crazy scientologists. Opened my eyes about the seedy underbelly of Scientology. By the end of the book, you're really rooting for Jenna and her husband to turn on the church and get out of there. Really good listen.

  • Deep Thoughts from a Hollywood Blonde

    Story

    For the first time ever, Jennie Garth is putting it all out there, sharing her joys and her sorrows, her successes and her failures, with candor and a surprising, even bawdy, sense of humor. From her sudden rise to fame as a golden-haired teen beauty, to recently redefining herself as a single working mother to three growing girls, Jennie Garth has defied the odds and thrived in a town that can be more than a little tough on its blondes.

    Would you try another book from Jennie Garth and Emily Heckman and/or Jennie Garth?

    No, I would not...the simple fact is that there is nothing interesting here. It could have been about my neighbor down the street, or the guy who runs the hardware store. "I went to school, got a job, had some drama, and everybody ends up to be my lifelong friend". I love auto biography's and have listed to or read many. What makes them interesting is the unusual and fascinating lives some people live. Unfortunately, Jenny's book is a swing and a miss. I'm about halfway through the book and haven't gotten to her divorces yet, but I'm sure it'll be no different than the 50 people I know who got divorce...no more drama than anyone else. I'll finish the book, if I can get through it, and update my comments if needed. As other comments have indicated, it's obvious she doesn't want to offend anyone or step on anyone's toes, and the result, a boring book.


    What could Jennie Garth and Emily Heckman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I would have hoped she would be a little more honest. Give us the real dirt while growing up as a Hollywood star. If Jenny was as honest as she could be (which I'll never know for sure), then maybe nothing that exciting happened to her.
