Amanda Knox spent four years in a foreign prison for a crime she did not commit. In the fall of 2007, the 20-year-old college coed left Seattle to study abroad in Italy, but her life was shattered when her roommate was murdered in their apartment. After a controversial trial, Amanda was convicted and imprisoned. But in 2011, an appeals court overturned the decision and vacated the murder charge. Free at last, she returned home to the U.S., where she has remained silent, until now.
Filled with details first recorded in the journals Knox kept while in Italy, Waiting to Be Heard is a remarkable story of innocence, resilience, and courage, and of one young woman’s hard-fought battle to overcome injustice and win the freedom she deserved. With intelligence, grace, and candor, Amanda Knox tells the full story of her harrowing ordeal in Italy - a labyrinthine nightmare of crime and punishment, innocence and vindication - and of the unwavering support of family and friends who tirelessly worked to help her win her freedom.

Audible Addict. Hopelessly addicted to Audible and find myself listening to books at every chance. The Audible sales feed my addiction!!
Having followed the Amanda Knox case, read many articles and the book "Murder in Italy", I was very pleased to see that she had finally published her memoir. It is even more gratifying to see that Amanda decided to read the book in her own voice rather than having someone else read. The book reads like a "who-done-it?" with never ending twists and turns as the investigation and trial unfold. The listener is likely to know the outcome before they begin, but it does not make the book any less interesting. I for one could not stop listening. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has any interest in the truth behind what happened in this case.
Good read to satisfy some of the nagging questions you may have had from print and digital coverage
At least shewas finally freed. It is too bad she is still awaiting retrial.
You can hear the pain of the injustices and naivety. She puts it all out their despite an upcoming new trial
This is a blue print for how American law enforcement ShOULD NOT INTERROGATE. it is the antithesis of how we are trained
It was written very well. Obviously a very sad and scary story
There was not very many characters since this was a memoir
Amanda did an excellent job performing this story. It must have been a nightmare to relive the horror.
It was very upsetting. The book was very well written and it was interesting to hear her side of the story
My heart just breaks for her, her lost time, and ALL of her horrible experiences. I've always believed she was innocent. This book makes you realize just innocent she is. I definitely recommend!
I have been waiting to hear Amanda's story. I couldn't listen to the media coverage because it was so obviously twisted.
Amanda, of course. Anyone who has gone to a foreign country alone as a young person can easily see how this very situation could have unfolded. It is a cautionary tale that I will remember when my own children are ready to study abroad.
The raw emotion of it all is brought to life through Amanda's telling of the story.
Amanda's obvious development into a serious and solemn woman in prison is both extraordinary and sad. She was entitled to live a few more years in that frivolous bubble before the real world stepped in. I don't know if my children will even know who Amanda Knox is when they get ready to study abroad themselves, but after listening to this book, I will bet that they will say, "Oh yes, Amanda Knox-- she's that writer."
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Yes and I have, it is a very sad event that took the life of an innocent young women from the UK and sent 2 what I believe are innocent people to prison for years well allowing the person that seems to have had done this or took part in it have a reduced sentence.
Sad true Crime stories
Amanda Know just telling her story in her words and her voice of these very tragic events which left a young women murdered
I just can't understand how the Italian legal authorities seem to have made so many mistakes and fixated on two people that so many other experts say they could not have done what the Italian legal authorities claim and how they seem to have mislead the courts and the public with the lack of real hard evidence according to FBI and crime scene experts.
There are many things that will make you scratch your head on how Amanda and her then BF acted. But keep in mind she was a 20 year old from America in another country and she acted like a 20 year old. I think that alone made the Italian legal authorities look at her
with blinders on and they forgot to allow the evidence to speak to them and not them to
what they wanted the evidence to be. Yes Amanda should have acted different, but everyone acts different when events rock there world when there so young. I wish the Italian legal authorities would have or would focus on the real victim the young women from the UK that was Murdered as that is the most tragic event of this story a family lost a daughter, sister and a friend and I do not think they have had justice for that loss. That's where my thoughts and Prayers are with them and may God Be with them and Bless them.
Ms Knox is not a talented writer or reader. While some of the plot twitst are interesting somehow it came of exceedingly dull. Disappointed.
