Book Review – Don’t You Want Me by India Knight

This is a guest review of the book, Don’t You Want Me by India Knight, by my good friend Rowena Paramour. (See her first review of Mutton here).


Sometimes in life it seems like you’re the only person on the planet not getting any (if you know what I mean).

At first glance Estelle appears to have it all; Frenchness, looks, style, a gorgeous home, and a cute daughter. So it’s just not fair that despite all of this the only person to have realised her ‘needs’ and recently proposition her is the dodgy neighbour who thinks that they might come to some kind of arrangement.

Obviously out of practice in the dating world, and two marriages down (or up, depending on how you look at it), her lovely, lovely, lodger (you can tell where this is leading) Frank comes to her assistance. Not in the way you are thinking; he’s far too ginger and far too promiscuous for Stella to even consider, but what a good friend. Instead, thanks to his advice to ‘get back out there’, she embarks on a hilarious series of dates with totally unsuitable and really unattractive men.

Funnier and ruder than any other writer in this chick lit genre, India Knight is a total delight. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a fun read.

SCORE: 4 out of 5
