Anyone But You
Author: Jennifer Crusie
For Nina Askew, turning forty means freedom -- from the ex-husband whose career always came first, from their stuffy suburban home.

I so wanted to like this book - I mean I am a sucker to stories with dogs in them and how they impact our lives. And I love thoughtful and inspiring chick lit. But this book is the sort that gives "chick lit" a bad rap. The characters are flat, the writing is boring and so childish, and there is nothing even likeable about these people. Fred, the dog on the cover isn't in this story near enough! I got half way through, and finally decided there are too many really good books out there to be discovered to spend my time on this one. What a disappointment.

This has to be one of the funniest books I've ever read. A 40- something heroine, newly divorced from her doctor husband, meets up with a 30-something ER doc. He can't possibly be interested in HER, can he, she thinks? After all she's older! Toss in the best written basset hound, Fred, and you have the makings of a great story!

I don't like romance, but I have to say I really enjoyed this book. The dog was a main character. He was a normal dog (he didn't talk or anything else unbelievable)and through him the main characters in the story met. The dog is really what held this story together and made it so enjoyable. For anyone who is looking for a novel that isn't just about young perfect 20 something people, has a very believable story line, and loves animals, this will be an enjoyable read.

Jennifer Crusie's books always sparkle and leave a smile on your face. Her pet, "Fred", makes you want to run right out and buy a Basset/Beagle mixed breed dog. Fun read!

Forty year old Nina falls in love with younger man Alex, a handsome thirty year old ER doctor. But the real star of this story is a basset hound named Fred, who loves Oreos and whose favorite toy is a red lace Incredibra. This is a warm, sexy, laugh-out-loud book.
