Four star review, originally posted here on January 24, 2018.
A quick, interesting, and depressing read. You don’t have to really like Corey Feldman much or think he’s a gifted actor to appreciate this book. He is clearly a jacked up individual who has been through some jacked up stuff, and this book helps the reader appreciate just how it can come to be that someone like Corey Feldman exists. Now a punchline, this book reminds us that once upon a time he was a gifted child who starred in some of the biggest, most-loved movies of the time. Fox and the Hound, Goonies, Stand By Me. The kid was good. So what happened to him? Adults fucked him over, that’s what. Sad stuff, and definitely worth a read.
