Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, October 2013 - I admit: I swooned over Corey Feldman as a kid in the '80s and '90s. The bad-boy attitude, raspy voice, the hair - paired with his undeniable charm - skyrocketed him up the Hollywood ladder and into international heart-throb territory by age 15. In this incredibly personal memoir, Corey tears down that veneer and shares what life was really like for him all those years, from his start in the business at age 3 up through the loss of his best friend, the \"other\" Corey, Corey Haim, as an adult. As I listened to Corey tell his story, I was shocked, disturbed and sickened at the abuse he suffered - emotional, physical and sexual, which led to his drug addiction and several suicide attempts - so much so, that at times, I found myself pausing to calm down and reach for more tissues. The writing is lucid and well-paced - and Corey's raw and emotional telling makes for an unbelievably intimate listen. Highly recommended. —Jessica, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

A deeply personal and revealing Hollywood-survival story.

Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he's become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo "The Two Coreys,"spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and "Coreymania" in the process. What child of the eighties didn't have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet?

Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey 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.

While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generation—he's still acting, isa touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zen—many of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret.

Coreyography is his surprising account ofsurvival and redemption.

    "Gripping Story Told with Brutal Honesty"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Coreyography to be better than the print version?

    I felt this was a story bravely told by the author. Most of what I knew about the Corey's was what was filtered through the Hollywood mill. I enjoyed a few of the movies that one or the other Corey starred in, and remember how their careers started to spiral down almost at the height of their success. I felt it was just another cautionary tale when it comes to child actors on the road to fame, but this book takes a bold look at an evil subject through the eyes of a painful childhood.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Coreyography?

    I found myself shaking my head in disbelief throughout the story. Most of the hardest to take sections of the story, include the abuse directed at Corey Feldman from his own parents! Many of the worst examples of abuse that took place, were in Corey's own home from his own mother. I was horrified, that his own mother could subject her own son to such abuse. No shock he ended up with a drug problem himself. It is a harrowing tale that I give Corey much credit for in bringing attention to the topic of predatory and sexual abuse that exists in the movie industry.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is a compelling book that is performed very honestly by the author himself. The voice impersonations throughout, especially of Michael Jackson, gave the story that much more depth.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a story that is written from the heart, with the intent to help inform and hopefully make changes to the laws when it comes to the entertainment industry and children.

    "Always curious. Now I"

    Through my life I have always been curious about the Corey's. Dream A Little Dream is one of my fav movies to this day. I have never actively followed them, but always bite when one of them are mentioned, or I come across one if their movies whether it is one or both. I listened to this book every second I could. This was fantastic and thorough. All of my questions through the years were answered except for the one that would probably end Feldman's career if answered (Charlie Sheen?) I found this a fascinating listen from a childhood crush, and I will play it again. Thanks!

    "The best book I have ever read/listened to."

    This book is so reminiscent of my own life minus the Hollywood acting career. Corey, even tho having to endure such abuse in his early years, still managed to turn his life around and make something of himself. He is such an inspiration to all.

    "Self serving tripe"

    I cannot believe I paid for this. I understand that Feldman went through a lot as a child, but this memoir was nothing but self serving tripe. He inflates his current "career" and endeavors to portray himself as such a spiritual well rounded person; this book does nothing but show what a one dimensional washed up has-been he is. Plus the performance was terrible! If you are keen for a laugh- go to you tube and loll up some of his musical performances- hilarious!!

    "It is definatly a book for fans of 80s movies."

    I think 1985 was the best year and film and Corey Feldman was a huge part of that. I liked hearing all the behind the scenes stories. I am sure they are one sided, but I enjoyed them none the less. His narration is comically dramatic at times and he takes no responsibility for anything; seriously, nothing is ever his own fault, but I still came out liking him. It was a fun listen.

    "A must read"

    A great bio. I found myself stopping the book to look up names & YouTube videos. Now I have a huge list of re-watching many of his movies. It's amazing hearing him telling his story. He is so strong.
