I love NPH!

But, I won't lie...his book? Notsomuch!

Why was it so difficult for me to get through?  I have had this book a little less than a year now, (my second Blogging for Books book) and picked it up and put it down at least a dozen times.  I received the e-book to review from Blogging for Books and thought maybe because the book was written in the Choose Your Own Adventure style I LOVED as a kid, that I would love it.  But it was tough.  I thought I might have been confused because I was reading the ebook and it was a lot of page turning, so I picked up the book from the library instead, in hopes that that would be easier.  But I was still confused.  And basically, even though you turn back and go forward, I felt like I still read the whole book.  That is not to say I didn't enjoy some parts.

I obviously loved reading about his Dougie days and some of his old stories of "clubbing" made me laugh out loud!  As well as hearing about his time on How I Met Your Mother! (a show I will always love, even though, that ending kinda stunk!!)  
I enjoyed his kind words for his family and their support of him, and of course the sweet family he has now created with his husband.  And seeing the pictures made me smile. And as I was reading it, I heard HIM, I heard his voice!  Which made me like it...a lil...ha!
But all in all, I think I'll stick with Neil Patrick Harris, the Actor and funny man, rather than the author!!

  1. Aw man that stinks.
    Steve Martin is the worst tho. Great comedian. Terrible author!

  2. Aw man, that seems like such a good idea for a book too! Darn!

  3. I had taken this book out then forgot to read it. Glad you loved it, I'll have to push it back up on my list of books to read!

  4. I haven't read this book and honestly didn't plan to. It just didn't appeal to me. There are some good books that I have read by actors though. B.J.Novak's story collection last year was really funny.
    And yes I think HIMYM ending was stupid. For series I love so much, I feel like the writers failed with that one. I am hoping they make a movie based on the it and write a better ending... Someday.

  5. I find non fiction easier as an audio book. I'd be interested in listening to this one!
