I was a little hesitant to buy a book written by a young first-time writer, but Knox did an amazing job of pulling me through the entire story. The book was easy to follow; sure it's not a litterary marvel, but the author wrote well enough as to not detract from a truly fascinating story. I also liked the fact that Knox reads the book herself; it wouldn't feel right to have someone else telling us she's innocent.
I understand it's easy to be convinced of a person's innocence when you only hear one side of the story, but I've followed this case enough through the years that I already doubted her guilt. So many events in this book left me dumbfounded; sometimes at Amanda's immaturity and foolishness (like doing the splits while she waited in the police station to show an officer how flexible she was), but mostly at the Italian police and prosecutor. They appeared to be so fixed on hanging her that any and all evidence found was somehow twisted to indict her. If Knox is lying in this book, than she truly is a masterful writer because she doesn't come across as a schemer or overly complex person; either way this book is well worth the price of admission.
Without a doubt this has been the most difficult book to put down in recent memory. If you've been at all interested in this case you MUST listen to this book, but even if you haven't followed the saga you won't believe the way the story unfolds. I can't recommend it strong enough.

Would you consider the audio edition of Waiting to Be Heard to be better than the print version?
It is a unique situation that the young lady is so competent. It is much much better to listen to her story. I may not have read it. But I could not stop listening.
What did you like best about this story?
She definately put it all out on the table. If we are all honest with ourselves we can all envision ourselves in similar situations.
What about Amanda Knox’s performance did you like?
I just enjoyed listening.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Could this happen to you?
Any additional comments?
Very good job!!!!
