Listening to the woman's voice was like nails on a chalk board. The man's narration was fine.

Let me start off by saying the narrators of this audiobook were great! I really enjoyed their readings. Anyone But Him was narrated by Angel Clark -narrating Whitley's Chapters, and Terrence Bayes -narrating Jennings' Chapters. I don't listen to audiobooks often, in fact I've only listen to three I think and they’ve all been of books I’ve previously read, so I wasn’t sure how well this audiobook would go since I hadn’t read the actual book beforehand. There was no reason to worry, it was a great experience.
Whitley, the main character, is stubborn, and independent. She is also a bit whiney which I suppose everyone is so I can’t dog on that too much ;) At the start of the book Whitley is with this terribly self-centered, ignorant guy who she just needs to dump. When you find out that she self-sabotage’s her relationships so she doesn’t have to do the breaking-up herself because she wants to remain guiltless, this is the first sign I got that she has past issues she needed to work through. And whew was I not prepared for the issues she had in her past, I did not see that coming.
Before you find out about her past issues she meets this guy, in probably the coolest, funniest way I have heard/read in a book, totally not cliché at all. It also wasn’t “insta-love” more like “insta-attraction” because boy is he handsome. Jennings Cohen is an unlikely person to run into the way that Whitley does, considering he is a mega-superstar.
I love the path that Cassie Graham takes you on following these two people who are both looking to find themselves, one in scholarly aspects, and the other in their heart. There are a bunch of twists in this novel. I wasn’t expecting a side character that seemed insignificant at the time to be who he was, I wasn’t expecting Jennings to have crazy fans, or Whitley’s past to be what it was. It definitely keeps you on your toes. I found my mouth hanging wide open when some of these twists presented themselves. Even the epilogue surprised me!
I loved listening to this while on my way to class or work, or even while I was writing papers for school. It was a nice, funny, good novel read by great people who knew how to convey emotion and really bring life to the characters they were portraying
What would have made Anyone but Him better?
His character lacks depth.
Has Anyone but Him put you off other books in this genre?
The heroine is whinny and childish.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Impatience and frustration. Bored.
Any additional comments?
Angel Clark's high pitched voice was certainly aggravating and made it hard to listen.
