  1. Maybe you’ve noticed I have an obsession with this case. I’ve read some books and I’d always thought Amanda and Raffaelle were innocent. Well, maybe I doubted a couple of times.
    BUT, this book made me question everything I’ve ever read/though/decided about the case. I’m not sure yet if that’s ok or not, but one thing I’m sure of is that this book was amazing. It’s pretty detailed and has tons of information I haven’t found before (or have forgotten along the way).

My personal opinion about Amanda Knox given the thorough evidence stated in the book is that she wasn’t involved (and my guess as to why her recollection of the night of the murder is so poor is a mixture of stress and drugs). But hey.

    She was convicted again earlier this year. A weird, maybe kind of unlikeable or attention-

  5. A detailed and balanced account of the murder and the subsequent trial.
