Into the Wild

Read Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir Online Free - In the fall of 2007, twenty-year old college coed Amanda Knox left Seattle to study abroad in Perugia, Italy for one year. But that November 1, her life was shattered when her roommate, British student Meredith Kercher, was murdered in their apartment. Five days later, Amanda was taken into custody and charged by the Italian police; her arrest and the subsequent investigation ignited an international media firestorm. Overnight, this ordinary young American student became the subject of intense scrutiny, forced to endure a barrage of innuendo and speculation. Two years later, after an extremely controversial trial, Amanda was convicted and imprisoned. But in 2011 an appeals court overturned her conviction and vacated the charges. Free at last, she immediately returned home to the U.S., where she has remained silent, until now.

Amanda Knox is certainly a polarizing figure. In 2007 Knox left the University of Washington and moved to Perugia, Italy for a year of studying abroad. The night after Halloween, Knox's British roommate Meredith Kercher was stabbed, brutalized and then left to bleed to death. Knox and her boyfrien...

For whatever reason I had always found Amanda Knox sort-of creepy. The Italian press had muddied her and between that and her beady eyes she bugged me. But when I started looking at the facts in this case it was so obvious she had nothing to do with Meredith's murder. This case has affected my ov...

Lesson to be learned from this book: Be VERY VERY careful if you are a quirky individual living in a foreign country, especially if you could be considered to have a unique or atypical personality. I guess I have to start by saying that I believe Amanda Knox when she says she had nothing to do wi...

The book was okay. Its moderately interesting to hear her side. Lets all remember that everyone accused of murder proclaims their innocence, and this is her story after having years to get it all lined up- and its still wonky. Here's what I took away from it: 1)At best she's an idiot kid who is C...

If you followed nothing of the Meredith Kercher murder case in Perugia, Italy, in late 2007 or the Amanda Knox/Raffaele Sollecito trials, appeals and, ultimately, acquittal that followed over the subsequent four years, Knox’s new memoir, Waiting to be Heard, provides both a reasonable outline of...

I only had the smallest of ideas about the Amanda Knox trial. I briefly followed the media story and so was under the impression that she was a poor innocent American, stuck in the wrong place at the wrong time. After reading this book, I am still under that impression, but I’m also going to add...

Whether you believe in Amanda Knox's innocence or not this is a compelling story. It depicts all the events in intricate detail proclaiming Amanda's innocence. It opens with Amanda describing life in Seattle before the events in Perugia Italy takes place where her roommate Meredith is found bruta...

I started reading this book a couple days ago, and I love it so much! I look forward to reading it each night. I haven't felt this way about a nonfiction book in years. It's a page turner. I dream about poor Amanda at night, and I wake up in the morning feeling so bad for what she went through. I...

I actually listened to the audiobook version from Audible, which was narrated by Amanda Knox herself. I had followed her case casually over the years, and eventually came to believe she was innocent and being railroaded by corruption within the Italian system of justice. This book gave a lengthy,...

Occam's razor prevails. I had previously read The Fatal Gift of Beauty by Nina Burleigh and was eagerly awaiting Amanda's book. Well Done - not the least bit disappointed by her effort. So many people came to her aid - I especially took heart in the goodly Don Saulo Scarabattoli. Now I've looked...
