5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute gem., 24 Oct. 2004
This review is from: Don't You Want Me? (Paperback)
After reading 'My life on a plate' and enjoying it very much, I was thrilled to discover India Knights new book 'Don't you want me'.
Personally I think its a fantastic book and a riot from start to finish. I actually prefer it to 'My life on a plate' although that is still in my top ten of favourite books.
This is the book I pick up when I am feeling low and need cheering up or I am worried about something and need to escape. It never fails to have me laughing out loud straight away.
As a not very well off, single mother of two, I can understand why some would find it too convenient for Stella to have a house and money and babysitter on hand, this wasnt a problem for me. It is after all an uplifting story, if I had read about how broke Stella was and how she cried into her pillow on a night from loneliness, it wouldnt be the escapism or funny kind of book I was hoping for.
And although like a lot of readers I guessed the ending, it didnt detract anything from this absolute gem of a novel.
Stella is a real scream. From her blatent honesty, to her fabulous dress sense, to her incredibly bad taste in men, she is the kind of person I would love to be best friends with.
India Knight captures perfectly, things most of us think but would never dare say.
Well worth reading and well worth keeping a copy on hand for those 'feeling low' emergencies'
