If all you know about the murder case of Meredith Kercher is from reading Amanda Knox’s memoir, then you’d better read this.
Amanda Knox’s 500 page memoir, Waiting to be Heard has been described as:
” . . . insulting, inflammatory, literally makes hundreds of false claims, slimes many, accuses others of crimes, whitewashes AK’s history—including banging a coke dealer for drugs, greatly distorts the factual evidence, and makes very little sense, even to those who have not followed the case closely.” (truejustice.org)
Her memoir was meant to bolster her defense position in an ongoing murder trial. In it she sanitizes her story while exacting revenge on people she didn’t like. In colloquial terms, Amanda’s memoir is an attempt to portray herself as a ‘Hannah’ when in reality she was a ‘Miley.’
This ebook scrutinizes Amanda Knox’s own words and reveals what is fact and what is fiction by comparing Knox’s account with official documentation and other witness accounts.
This ebook also delves into how Amanda describes events and what that reveals. This analysis is done in an informal, conversational way but sticks to the documented facts.
