Anyone but You - Jennifer Crusie

I listened to novel while waiting on receipt of The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. The book was waste of my one week of listening. Several people found Jennifer Crusie's books funny. I found first Jennifer Crusie's book I listened to irritating and have no desire to read/listen to any of her other works. Some people compared her to Sophie Kinsella. Sophie Kinsella is better than her, even though Becky Bloomwood from Shopaholic series also gets annoying with her lies and shopping problems. Rebecca's character reminds me of certain someone, but let's not get into that. I loved Sophie Kinsella's Undomestic Goddess, and looking forward to listening/reading to her other novels beside Shopaholic series.

Back to Anyone but You, the story can be summed up in less than a paragraph, and Jennifer Crusie took that one paragraph and extended it into a long lame book. Notice that I am calling the book long when it was only 5 hours long. I felt that it will never end. I still listened to it till the end because I don't like to leave books half-read. I have listened to longer books and enjoyed them.

I would give this book 4 out of 10. Four points are for the picture of the dog on the front cover of the book since that was the only cute thing in the book.
