Its not only the Book, There was some talk about selling Film Rights which if it happened would rake in a fortune.However as she is never likely to go back to Italy (The Americans would never allow her to be Extradited) if she is guilty she will not recieve the punishment deserved,and Merediths Murder will in time be forgotten by everyone except her family and friends.

Quite agree with you Liz and others. But sadly she could make millions and she probably won't go to prison if found guilty and poor Merediths parents and family/friends, as you say having to deal with this all again must be horrendous!!

How could she possibly want to profit from the death of a friend? I always thought she looked hard as nails, I am not sure the family will ever really know what happened in that room but it's wrong for Knox to make money from such a tragic situation.

I feel so sorry for Meredith's family having to live through this continuous media publicity about their loss, wonder if they have even been able to grieve properly yet.

is anyone likely to buy it? wouldn't appeal to me and no way would I wish to contribute to her coffers


AnninGlos Report 27 Mar 2013 20:16

I don't think anyone should be allowed to profit from a crime whether guilty or not, especially when a life has been lost


Joeva Report 27 Mar 2013 19:59

In the link it says 'she discusses her experience at the hands of the Italian Police, prison guards and inmates'. So one would gather it is all about her suffering, not the anguish of the family of Meridith.

Guilty or not guilty this book should never had been written or published.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 27 Mar 2013 19:41

Quite agree Stray :-(



StrayKitten Report 27 Mar 2013 19:34

i dont agree with her writting a book, the same as i have never agreed with the Mccanns writing a book, its in bad taste :-|


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 27 Mar 2013 19:28

l thinbk the link also indicated that she probably would'nt have to appear for that very reason....USA would'nt extradite her!!

Also this does not mean that she is quilty or they have further evidence, but that the Italian courts made mistakes!!!!



Guinevere Report 27 Mar 2013 18:58

No, Terry, but Meredith's family deserve some answers.


terryj Report 27 Mar 2013 18:55

does anybody really think that the usa would extradite one of their own to stand trial in another country


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 27 Mar 2013 18:40

Mind you ....reading the link, it indicates she probably would'nt go back to prison anyways, but her boyfriend could!!



~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 27 Mar 2013 18:32

Remember she was proven to be guilty once:)))))


Guinevere Report 27 Mar 2013 18:30


Not sure what your point is, George. I was saying it's sick to make money out of the death of a friend what has innocence or guilt has to do with it?


George Report 27 Mar 2013 18:23

Innocent until proved guilty.



~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 27 Mar 2013 18:21

l never thought the MaCann's were guilty either, but there is something about this lady and her boyfriend, just have that feeling.....we'll see.


Guinevere Report 27 Mar 2013 18:19

Not sure how that's relevant to Amanda Knox writing a book, George.

If she's innocent and Meredith Kercher was such a good friend why on earth would she want to make money out of her death?

Seems sick to me.


AnnCardiff Report 27 Mar 2013 18:19

I never thought the McCann parents were guilty - they had, and still have my utmost sympathy - this pair though are quite differnet


George Report 27 Mar 2013 18:16

When the little McCann girl when missing, quite a few people on here also stated that "They are as guilty as hell".



George Report 27 Mar 2013 18:13

Why not, lots of people make money from telling their side of things.
