Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography

Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography

By Neil Patrick Harris

Rating: 3.5/5 Stairs

(5 Stairs for content, but the Choose Your Own Adventure format got old after a while.)

NPHI’m a child of the ’80s, and I remember reading and loving Choose Your Own Adventure books. (In fact, I still own a few.) I was also a big Doogie Howser, M.D. fan, leading to a lifelong love of Neil Patrick Harris. So picking up his autobiography seemed a no brainer.

While I truly loved the format of the book in the beginning, I did get tired of the page flipping and decisions later on. It was fun at first, but after a while I did just want to read his autobiography straight through without all the decisions and the fictional endings. Sometimes I went so far down a path that I had trouble finding my way back. NPH is an interesting individual with a lot to say.

With that said, NPH is funny while sometimes being fantastical and other times heartfelt. This book covers a lot of ground. Along with his acting journey, he squeezes in magic, talkshows, asides from other actors, and his journey to become a father.

NPH is interesting and really funny, and the format of the book creative. Ultimately, it was the format of the book that brought me down, it just got too difficult to navigate.

Thanks to Blogging for Books, who gave me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I remember enjoying it because of the formatting always being exciting. But I can see why it would get tiresome after a while. I think his humor really helped keep things moving for me.
