Several months ago, I was at a trivia night with Boyfriend and his brother. The category of the next question was “Neil Patrick Harris.” I grabbed the answer sheet and pen. Almost everyone looked confused, but Boyfriend turned to the group and said, “Oh, she’ll know it.”
Yes, I admit it–I love Neil Patrick Harris. I loved him when he was Doogie Howser, M.D., I loved him when he guest starred on Will and Grace, I SUPER LOVED him on How I Met Your Mother, and on the Tony Awards–perfection!
So of course, I wanted to read his autobiography, and in true NPH awesomeness, he wrote it in the style of a Choose Your Own Adventure book, which brought me right back to my childhood! I must admit that as the book went on, I occasionally skimmed the made-up versions of his “life” gone wrong, but only because I found his real life so interesting!
While I was most interested in his stories from HIMYM (Josh Radnor didn’t know Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl”?! WHAT?!), I also loved hearing about his relationship with David Burtka (who, BTW, orchestrated the most amazing 40th birthday gift of all time) and how he became a father to his adorable twins (one of whom wants to be a doughnut when he grows up).
Oh, and did I mention that a couple famous people wrote sections of the book? I don’t want to spoil it–but they’re BIG names!
Do yourself a favor and give this book a read. It’ll be legen–wait for it–dary! Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
