The Fatal Gift of Beauty is not all that interesting.

    I was very excited to see this book as an option to review so I eagerly tried to order it.  I discovered that I was unable to do so as there were no further review copies available so I emailed Blogging for Books and more copies became available.

   I received my copy and started to read it right away.  I remember the Amanda Knox case and followed the news coverage of the trials so I did know something about this story.  I fully expected to learn more about the murder and her story.  I must say as much as I wanted to like this book--I just did not. 

  I do not enjoy the author's style of writing.  She brings all sorts of  background information that I am not interested in and goes way too in depth into some of the characters. There did not seem to be a logical flow to the story either.  In summary I can't say that I learned much more than I already knew.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
