Anyone But You | [Jennifer Crusie]

Anyone But You

Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous dog Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - 40-year-old Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

Publisher's Summary

For Nina Askew, turning 40 means freedom - from the ex-husband whose career always came first, from their stuffy suburban home. Freedom to have her own apartment in the city, freedom to focus on what she wants for a change.... And what she wants is something her ex always vetoed: a puppy. A bouncy puppy to cheer her up. Instead she gets...Fred.

Overweight, smelly, and obviously suffering from some kind of doggy depression, Fred is light-years from perky. But for all his faults, he does manage to put Nina face-to-face with Alex Moore, her gorgeous, younger downstairs neighbor.

Alex looks great on paper - a sexy, seemingly sane, surprisingly single E.R. doctor who shares Fred's abiding love for Oreos - but a 10-year difference in age, despite his devastating smile, is too wide a gap for Nina to handle.

Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

What the Critics Say

"Considered by many to be a romantic comedy classic....the novel is given a note-perfect reading by Susan Ericksen....Also worthy of note: the upbeat, jazzy score." (AudioFile)

    "Jennifer Crusie knows how to have fun"

    I had read "Fast Women" because is was on sale and very entertaining. So I thought I would try another by this author. what a great story with lots of laughs.
    The narrator did a great job. I understand that some of the narrators for Ms Crusie books are not as enjoyable. I suggest a listen before purchasing.
    I enjoyed this one very much and recommend

    "Susan Ericksen Rules"

    Listen to anything that she reads! She's amazing!
    The book was good... funny at parts, REALLY funny at other parts!
    I enjoyed it! A nice "fluff" book for when I just don't feel like remembering names or dates or trying to figure out who the killer might be!

    "As memorable as a Hollywood Classic Movie"

    Listening to this is like watching one of the great Hollywood classic movies: The characters are smart and witty, the dialogue snappy...and you'll fall in love with Fred. I will definitely be listening to this one again and again.

    "Witty and fun book."

    I thought this book was so much fun. I love a book like this that can make me laugh out loud. The dialog between the characters and the interactions with Fred cracked me up. Susan Ericksen did a really great job with the narration. Loved it!

    "Anyone But You"

    Not one of Jennifer Crusie's best. Rather formulaic. She can write much better. I'm glad I've read some of her other books, otherwise, I wouldn't bother reading her other books.

    "Cute"

    This is a cute and fluffy selection. The main characters continuing obsession with her age got to be a little annoying.

    "Cute Romance!"
    Where does Anyone But You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is a short, light-hearted romp. Just as good as when I originally read the book.

    Story
    "One of My All-Time Favorites"
    If you could sum up Anyone But You in three words, what would they be?

    This is one of my very favoritest romance novels ever. The story is simple yet beautiful. The characters are real. The situations (with the exception of the dog on the fire escape) are entirely plausible. I have read the paperback more than once and bought it on Audible so I could listen to it when I needed to get in a happy space (migraine - couldn't read). I just can't emphasize enough how much I love this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Anyone But You?

    Alex's reaction to Nina in the ER.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really brings depth to Nina's character through her tone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes - I cried. More than once.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the most beautiful love stories ever. Jennifer Crusie's best work.

    "It was okay"

    I thought the narrator seemed VERY LOUD and overacted it a bit. I also found it VERY unrealistic that a basset hound/beagle mix can go up and down a fire escape (aren't they similar to ladders?). I did like her well developed characters and there are some great one liners in this book! Don't know if I would read another by this author. I am spoiled by Anna Fields and her fantastic narration of SEP books.
