fun and funny - could be better
on 19 May 2004
You kind of wish Ms Knight would stop writing snappy little short stories for Cosmopolitan Magazine and write a proper novel. She has the 'girl speak' down and a great sense of humor and if only she would concentrate she could come out with a top class, Brigette Jones style, laugh a minute, chick lit novel and knock the Marion Keynes and the like off their thrones.
As it is you have in 'Don't you want me' a slightly better than run-o-the mill story, written in the first person about our sexy single mum Stella, her gorgeous man slut lodger and the unbelievable fact that he's just about as wonderful as can be but she can't see it (yes, I know...).
Definitely worth a read if you can get this second hand (and there are a lot of them floating about) but if you want to see the same(ish) story done right, read 'Thirty something' by Lisa Jewell.
