The long awaited book by Amanda Knox has been delayed a couple months, and is now due out on April 30, 2013 according to HarperCollins publishers. The delay is said to be due to the upcoming last shot by the Italian prosecution to have Amanda's innocent verdict overturned- That unnecessary pony show is due in late March 2013. While all of this is certainly not 'up to the minute- breaking news', I did want to throw around a few thoughts on both the book, and the upcoming prosecution appeal.
The book is titled "Waiting To Be Heard" according to HarperCollins, and will be available in several formats including e-book. The publisher released cover of the book (shown above) has a lovely photo of Amanda (taken earlier this year). In regards to this photo- it is nice to see that Amanda has returned to the healthy looking girl she was before the nightmare hit. Photos of her taken last year, just after her release from prison, show a tired, thin, and stressed-out Amanda- so she has obviously bounced back nicely from her ordeal. Well, at least as concerns outward appearance.
I don't think I need to tell anyone that this book by Amanda Knox is going to be the 'Bible' concerning this case. Many of the nagging questions and speculation will come to an end with the release of this book. All other books on this case were views from the outside looking in, with the exception of Raffaele's of course. Yet as concerns Amanda- who was the prime target of the prosecution- this book will reveal important details of the case for the first time. Oh and by the way, if you are reading this, I hope you remember you owe me one signed copy, just for being correct in my prediction of you writing a best selling book on the case after being found innocent : )
As for the prosecution's appeal coming in late March- all I can say is: These people are completely void of scruples. They want the Italian supreme court to overturn common sense- I don't think that is going to happen. Italy finally got it right. Leave well enough alone. The prosecution in this case has always baffled me- Why do they behave as if stupidity were a virtue? And that's all I have to say about that.
The book "Waiting To Be Heard- A Memoir" by Amanda Knox will be available through all leading bookstores and online book sellers, including Amazon, and Barnes & Noble starting April 30, 2013.
