Description

Amanda Knox spent four years in a foreign prison for a crime she did not commit, as seen in the Netflix documentary Amanda Knox. In the fall of 2007, the 20-year-old college coed left Seattle to study abroad in Italy, but her life was shattered when her roommate was murdered in their apartment. After a controversial trial, Amanda was convicted and imprisoned. But in 2011, an appeals court overturned the decision and vacated the murder charge. Free at last, she returned home to the U.S., where she has remained silent, until now. Filled with details first recorded in the journals Knox kept while in Italy, Waiting to Be Heard is a remarkable story of innocence, resilience, and courage, and of one young woman's hard-fought battle to overcome injustice and win the freedom she deserved. With intelligence, grace, and candor, Amanda Knox tells the full story of her harrowing ordeal in Italy-a labyrinthine nightmare of crime and punishment, innocence and vindication-and of the unwavering support of family and friends who tirelessly worked to help her win her freedom. Waiting to Be Heard includes 24 pages of color photographs.

Professional reviews

"Amanda Knox's mediocre text and narrative performance result in a disappointing final product. Her inability to establish a defined persona makes for an uneven presentation as she vacillates between assertiveness and na•vetŽ. The few times she attempts to show strong emotion by elevating pitch and intensity sound forced. She comes across as disingenuous as she blames her overly trusting nature for her arrest, trial, and conviction for the murder of her British roommate while the young women were students in Italy. There are certainly interesting bits, especially her insights into Italy's legal and penal systems. But Knox comes across as an unsympathetic figure whose total focus is on herselfÑto the virtual exclusion of any discussion of her brutally murdered friend. Her memoir leaves many questions unanswered. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
