Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography Read Online Free - Tired of memoirs that only tell you what really happened?
Sick of deeply personal accounts written in the first person? Seeking an exciting, interactive read that puts the “u” back in “aUtobiography”? Then look no further than Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography! In this revolutionary, Joycean experiment in light celebrity narrative, actor/personality/carbon-based life-form Neil Patrick Harris lets you, the reader, live his life. You will be born in New Mexico. You will get your big break at an acting camp. You will get into a bizarre confrontation outside a nightclub with actor Scott Caan. Even better, at each critical juncture of your life, you will choose how to proceed. You will decide whether to try out for Doogie Howser, M.D. You will decide whether to spend years struggling with your sexuality. You will decide what kind of caviar you want to eat on board Elton John’s yacht.
Choose correctly and you’ll find fame, fortune, and true love. Choose incorrectly and you’ll find misery, heartbreak, and a hideous death by piranhas. All this, plus magic tricks, cocktail recipes, embarrassing pictures from your time as a child actor, and even a closing song. Yes, if you buy one book this year, congratulations on being above the American average, but make that book Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography!

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...

How 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 insp...

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...

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,...

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...

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 woul...

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 th...

Have I read the whole book? I don't think so! Why not you ask me? Well, it's because in this book you will have to pick your own way to get to the end/endings. Which means that I have read the book, jumping around, precisely like the old adventure books my brother had when I was younger. You have...

Since it's a choose your own book, I guess I'll be reading it a few more times. So far it's very charming. Just what you'd expect from NPH.
