The sexually Violent murder of twenty-one-year-old Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy, on the night of November, 1,2007, became an international sensation when on of Kerchers housemates, Amanda Knox, as well as her Italian boyfriend and a troubled local man Knox said she “vaguely” knew was arrested and charged with murder.

I received to review the book “The Fatal Gift of Beauty”: The trial of Amanda Knox by Nina Burleigh, Published by Crown Publishing Group, 352 pages, Publish date August 2011,

Whwn I first started, its was interesting and I did enjoy the beginning, but then the author got into way to much Italian for me. Since I have never been to Italy or studied Italian and even thought I have an Italian name, I really actually just got way to lost and was never able to recover from all the Italy information. Now I am sure that many others may not be like me and may not have as much of a problem I had understanding the Author.I had a problem also with Amanda even thought I do not think she is quilty of murder, I just did not like her. I was also irrated with the title of the book. I do think that Amanda is a attractive girl , but to label her a beauty seemed way to much  for me. I say try this book if you are interested in what happened to Amanda and how she got in the mess she is in now, and if your a fan of Italy and can understand and knowwhat the author is talking  about Italy. I say read this one and judge for yourself. This is my honest opinion.

08/02/11: Being a 58 year old Woman, I was not sure how I was going to like this book about a young girl called Rain, but I loved it. Rain was a beautiful girl and the book was well written.I would have loved to keep on reading more about Rain growing into a beautiful young woman after coming of age like all of us girls did and all of the many that come after Rain will. I am so glad I was able to read and review Rain Plays Barefoot for Jennifer and hope in the future to be able to read more and review more books like this one for Jenifer. I do not think this book has any age restrictions because it is a wonderful read for all ages.Buy this and you will fall in love with Rain as I did. RAIN PLAYS BAREFOOT by Jennifer Steen.

My Thoughts
The book for me started out abit slow and that is only because in the 1st few chapters there were many characters and it took a little to get them all figured out, but after that the book was awesome. I love love it and all the characters and loved how they all interacted with each other. I really felt like they were my friend by the end of the book and would love to read more about them in another book. hint hint. And even thought I am an animal lover, the decription of the events had to be described that way and it worked out well and even thought it took me almost to the end to figure it out that was great. This was a perfect read for me. This was a great book and do yourself a big favor and read it, you will not be sorry in my opinion. The book was sent to me free from Water Book Press for my Honest Opinion
