My Thoughts: Before I read the book, I knew a little about the Amanda Knox case-- just enough to form the opinion that she did not kill Meredith Kercher. This book had several details that I was unaware of, so I found it very interesting to read. I do want to read a book from the other side (or an impartial book) so that I can actually hear about the evidence in the case. Most of her memoir is (predictably and understandably) about how everything affected her and about her feelings. There was little discussion of the evidence outside of what she was trying to discredit (her first sworn statement to the police, the knife, the bra clasp...). If most of her account of her interrogation is true, then she was absolutely railroaded. Although I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in the middle between her account and the police's account. It seems that there was a LOT of miscommunication due to language and cultural differences. I sincerely hope that those are not what put her in prison for four years.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. She's a good writer, and it was fascinating to read the story from her perspective. I got a little depressed in the middle as she described her time in prison. I had to keep reminding myself that she was no longer (wrongly, I do believe) in prison, so to calm down. I highly recommend this book!
