Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir

Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir - Amanda Knox I've been following (and will continue to with the new events that have happened) Amanda Knox's trial in Italy for the murder of Meredith Kercher. I felt that Amanda was innocent so I was happy to see her released in 2011. I also feel for the family of Meredith Kercher on their horrific loss. That being said I'll continue on with my review of Amanda's memoir.While reading the beginning parts of her memoir I actually found Amanda to be a bit unlikeable. She seemed so naive in her quest to become an adult and some of the experiences that she felt were just a part of her being an adult were absurd. She thought that casual sex was part of being an adult, but while you can make those decisions as an adult you also have to be an adult to be able to deal with the consequences. Amanda just wasn't ready for the consequences of her actions in regards to that.I was horrified by some of the actions Amanda describes the police taking while she was being interrogated. I know that the justice system (in any country) isn't always perfect but this just seemed like lazy and inept police work. As a paralegal student I was also horrified by the actions of the prosecutor. I have such respect for the law and the legal system that I am appalled when things like this happen.This was definitely interesting and I liked finally getting to read Amanda's story in her own words. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has followed her trial.
