This review is from: Meredith: Our daughter's murder and the heartbreaking quest for the truth (Hardcover)
This is an absolutely fabulous, moving tribute from a father to a daughter whom he lost tragically, even while he still appears to be struggling to understand how it could have happened. John Kercher has done a stupendous job of showing the world what a beautiful person Meredith was. She comes across as a kind, caring, genuine, witty girl and did not deserve what happened. This book is a beautiful tribute to her life. It is well-written and does a good job of showcasing the many complexities of the case while still retaining the essence of Meredith's life.

Josph P said:
"he (ie R Sollecito) never stated Meredith came round to his for a meal, nor did he identify Meredith by name as the person who was pricked.
Hampikian has considerably more credibility than any of the buffoons you cite here. "
Hello there Joseph P,
Always good to see one of the convicted criminal's supporters making demonstrably untrue assertions. You guys sure like to hang yourselves with all the rope you're given! You obviously haven't read Sollecito's diary, where he writes:
"The fact that there is Meredithʹs DNA on the kitchen knife is because on one occasion, while
we were cooking together, I, while moving around at home [and] handling the knife,
pricked her hand, and I apologized at once but she was not hurt [lei non si era fatta niente].
So the only real explanation for that kitchen knife is this one."
Two porkies in one short sentence! Since you're having such trouble understanding something as simple as this, I'll give your second line a miss.
You, and anyone else, can download the excellent translation by Clander at: http://perugiamurderfile.org
to which your reply was:
Joseph P says:
" 'at home'? whose home? Could be Amanda's.
Nor is Meredith mentioned by name as the person who was pricked.
The website you mention is a hate site so I won't be going there. "
So Jospeh P, why should anyone believe a single word you say? You are clearly unable to understand four simple lines penned by the convicted criminal's boyfriend, and persist in denying what he said. So once more:
Do you still deny that Sollecito claimed to have pricked Meredith Kercher with his kitchen knife?

Were you with the Kercher family during their ordeals? If not how can you describe John Kercher's description of the events, as they unfolded, as inaccurate? You have either not read the book, or have misread it.

@ Joseph - I am not part of any group, thank you very much. I read this book and reviewed it because of Meredith, nothing else. Please keep your thoughts out of why I did it or what I believe. I did not express my opinion about the case at all here. I did not say "buy this because its the most accurate book or "buy it if you want to know the truth" or anything of that sort. I told about what a beautiful person Meredith comes across as. If you do not agree with it, I have nothing more to say to you. But please do not smear a father's grief with your toxic thoughts. Going and leaving the same nonsense comment on everyone who likes the book is not going to prove your point in any way. Noone needs to be a member of any group to read about Meredith and the small anecdotes about her life that make you smile. This book is as close as you can get about knowing her.

I read Bruce Fis(c)her's article a while back, and like most of what he has written it's risible.
