If you can find the original version of this book it's far better than the updated special edition book. She added more stuff to it which in my opinion slightly ruined what was a fantastic story. I won't bother reading the special edition ever again.

My Amazon.com review:

This edition (Special Edition) is an updated one where the author's gone back and made changes. I prefer the original. There is a preface called 'The Writing of A Knight in Shining Armor' where the author states, "What people don't know is that A Knight in Shining Armor is about alcoholism." She turned Robert Whitley, Dougless' fiance into an alcoholic. She also says "For one thing, I felt I'd done what I set out to do: I'd written a book about alcoholism without ever mentioning the word." Fourteen years later, she decided to go back and rework part of the book. "I didn't change the plot, didn't really add any new information, but I somehow managed to add fifty pages to the book." Don't get me wrong, this is still a wonderful story, and I really do like it. It's one of my favorites of hers. I'm just pointing out, that in my opinion, the original version is better. Those 50 pages she added, clarify the alcoholism in such a way, that to me, mucks up a perfectly good story.
