I love reading books, all kinds of books, and this one especially since it was based from a trial that happened in Italy. The Trials of Amanda Knox captured the world and even captured me while they were going on. I could never understand how they thought that Amanda could have done it but the way that the prosecutors put the details of the murder, it made me at one point really think that she did do it.
This book, The Fatal Gift of Beauty: The Trials of Amanda Knox will entice you to relive the trials that happened over in Italy. It gave you an insight to what the trials, prosecutors were doing and saying about Amanda Knox. As most know, Amanda was being charged with the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher. Amanda’s boyfriend at the time was being charged as well. It really makes you think how cruel can they be? How can this happen in another country and still look at the evidence and think she did not do it. But that is what the Italian Police were trying to do! The trials were years long, but all in all she was allowed to come back to the states with her family. The book is well written and I am adding it to my little book collection. You never know when you want to read a trial or about a true life crime…which I apparently love reading about and watching the movies too! This book can be found online and at a local store or find it at your local library to read!
I did receive this book to review from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are 100% my own!
