Reviews Neil Patrick Harris

  • Patrick
    I expected this book to be witty. I expected it to be clever and fun. And it was. It was all of those things in spades. But I didn't expect it to be sweet and sad and honest and touching. I mean, it's framed as a choose-your-own-adventure. You don't expect those to be heartfelt, emotional stories....Perhaps I should start by saying that I came to know Neil Patrick Harris in a different way than people. Most of you probably know him from his two b...

    Kids, did I ever tell you about the time I read your Uncle Neil's wonderfully weird autobiography? No, not the The Bro Code.♪ Pa pa pa pa, pa pa pa pa, da da da da, da da da da da...♪It was the autumn of 2014 and your Aunt Robin was on a top secret mission for S.H.I.E.L.D. (She was Taran Killin'* it, by the way.) Anyway, Neil had just released a book that was unlike any other celebrity autobiography before. You see kids, most people u...

    Find all of my reviews at: can I describe my feelings about my experience with Choose Your Own Autobiography???? Well, this pretty much sums it up: Buckle up friends ‘cause this might be a long one . . . Where do I even begin???? I guess I should take my inspiration from NPH and sit down at the computer in order to journal my feelings: Let me start by saying you kind of have to be a NPH Fangirl to really ap...

    Hi, my name is Diane and I am a recovering theater addict.(Group: Hi, Diane.)I've long been a fan of Neil Patrick Harris. The guy can sing, dance, act funny or serious, and he makes hosting award shows look easy. He's a quintuple threat.Reading NPH's memoir, it felt like I grew up with him. As a kid, he loved the musical "Annie" and memorized the choreography. I also loved Annie and used to drive my mom nuts singing "It's a hard knock life."NPH w...

    Well, I’ve never read anything like this book before. I tried to read it in a Choose Your Own Whatever style, and also in a linear way – neither worked for me. Obviously, this kind of writing is not for me. As for the content, I expected something different. I thought it would be more hilarious, and as sparkling as NPH’s personality. I love NPH, seriously, but his autobiography didn’t get me involved emotionally. Apart from this, the book...

    I am charmed.I'm a big NPH fan going all the way back to his Doogie Howser days, so I was really excited to listen to this audiobook. Though the format was a little strange for audio (choose your own adventure works less well when you are listening linearly), it worked well enough. And I promise you that you will leave this audiobook feeling a kinship with Neil Patrick Harris in one way or another. I loved all of the intimate details, that we got...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.This book brings back a lot of fond memories for me. I used to adore reading the choose your own adventure books as a child although I would never choose the right option and always ended up dying of thirst or some other horrible death. I would eventually give up on my ability to make the right choices and try to figure out what I needed to choose by working backwards in the book. Despite my p...

    I am torn about this book. I have procrastinated rating this book and writing this review because I am really very sad about reaching the conclusion I have come to.Usually if I abandon a book, it automatically gets one star because if I can't finish a book, well, that kind of says it all. With this book, I can't do that. My dislike and inability to finish this book were not due to the content or writing style, it was due to the format.While I ver...
