The Magic Misfits Reviews

    I thoroughly enjoyed this little charmer. It's fun and heartfelt and, yes, full of magic. Carter is a sympathetic hero and the supporting characters are, for the most part, well-drawn. The setting also appealed to me--it could almost take place in the early 1900s, for we have little to...

    DNFing about 20% in. This book is written just like a Series of Unfortunate Events. If I want to read that series then I'll just read it. (it is one of my favorites) I really like Neil a lot but it feels like when he was being Count Olaf he read ASOUE and decided to write a book in the...

    You'll note no rating and no other shelves on this one. That's because I have decided not to rate it... Look I picked this book up on the strength of the enthusiasm that surrounded it and the announcement of it's eminent publication and arrival. A NEW BOOK BY NEIL PATRICK HARRIS...

    I am generally a fan of Neil Patrick Harris. But I was unfortunately not really impressed with his foray into the world of children's literature. There are so many great middle grade novels that are so well written they are appealing to adults as well. This is not one of them. It may v...

    Very cute! One of those books that made me aware that I was not the target audience, but that's okay, and I think the Shae-who-used-to-be-the-target-audience would have enjoyed it. Gave me a bit of a Pseudonymous Bosch feel. ...

    ?For years I looked for you. I never gave up, but I never imagined that fate would bring you to Mineral Wells." "Not fate," Leila said. "Magic." Magic, fate, or coincidence. Carter wasn't sure which was which anymore.? well this was entirely cute. the magic misfits is an ab...

    So, of course when I saw that Neil Patrick Harris wrote a book, I had to get my hands all over it. It's actually pretty good, with a lot of ties to Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. They must have worked together on this book, because Snicket's review is the only one on ...

    3.5 stars. Well this was cute. It?s about Carter, a little boy whose parents disappeared a while ago, leaving him with an arrogant and egocentric uncle who uses him to steal from people. Carter himself does not steal, because he believes in earning honest money even at his y...

    I almost gave this 2 stars, but since I love Neil Patrick Harris, I?m bumping it up to 3 stars. I was so excited when I heard he was releasing his debut MG fiction novel and couldn?t wait to read it. I love the cover! This is a children?s book with less than 250 pages, but...

    This is a great first book by Neil Patrick Harris. It is well written with an exciting story. We know he loves magic and he brings us a gang of kids who are geeky about magic and good at it too. They go up against an evil adult and they have to outwit him, which they do figure out a wa...

    I liked the story and the message it told but didn?t love it. Maybe if i was younger i would have enjoyed it more? I really liked the interactive aspect. Makes the book fun for kids! ...

    As you can obviously guess by the title, this book is about a group of young misfits who are also magicians... I am definitely down for that. This book has such a diverse cast and even though it was quite short I got a good idea of each character and how they are different but come...

    "Each of you has a long road ahead. It will be hard at times, but if you work together and stay true to one another, nothing will bar you. Alone you are weak. Together you are strong. So says the universe." I'm so disappointed in myself that I talked myself out of meeting Neil Pat...

    Six magical misfits going on an adventure. So Six of Crows but in a middle-grade book. Which is also by Neil Patrick Harris. Badass kids kicking butt like the Dregs. ...

    Ich htte nicht gedacht, dass ich nochmal so gefangen werde von einem Kinderbuch. Aber "Die magischen 6" von Neil Patrick Harris hat es geschafft. Ich habe dieses Buch wirklich gerne gelesen! Schon das Cover fllt ins Auge und wirkt "sehr kindisch", allerdings gefllt mir das Cover...

    This is a super cute middle grade story. I read this with my 12 year old son. He loved it and had me pre-order the next one. Carter was taught how to do magic tricks very young so that his Uncle Sly could use him to swindle people out of their money, but Carter did not like the things ...

    The Magic Misfits is a middle-grade novel coming out November 21st that I was lucky enough to get an ARC of at Yallwest! When I picked it up, I certainly wasn't expecting to recognize the name of the author--the famous Neil Patrick Harris. Usually, I'm hesitant when celebrities write n...

    ?For me, magic can be a story, a game, a puzzle, or a surprise that takes my breath away in a single, furious gulp.? Fantastic! This is the kind of middle-grade adventure that parents are going to want to run out and grab for their family and read it over and over again. ...

    most of people read this book because of the childrens-six-of-crows vibes that is carried by this. honestly, I read this book since it written by Neil Patrick Harris (and his magical tricks lmao) and the interesting blurbs. I'm not really into this but still, it was fun and entertainin...

    This book was cute and I loved Neil?s narration. However, I felt as though it was predictable and too similar to other middle grade books I have read. I am sad I didn?t like this more. I doubt I will continue with the series. ...

    This was a really good book, and I am excited to read the other books in the series. The author does a nice job of creating characters that are believable and that the reader cares about. The ending of the book drags out a bit, and, at times, Harris, who narrates the audio book, strugg...

    I think that this book is great for young readers who are interested in a book that is exciting, suspenseful and funny. It is pretty entertaining and also teaches the reader how to perform a few magic tricks throughout the book. I enjoyed this book and am excited for the next two in th...
