When the eight-part documentary was released on Netflix on Mar. If the allegations that have been disproven and discounted are aired again, I'm afraid it will fuel that. Kate and Gerry ignore all of that. The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann Executive Producer, Emma Cooper, responded to the McCann's statement and explained that the documentary attempts to make it "as comprehensive an exploration as possible. It has been 12 years since the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
While there are thousands of theories surrounding the case, there is no evidence that explains exactly what happened to Madeleine and whether or not she is dead or alive. As with every action we have taken over the last four years, it ultimately boils down to whether what we are doing could help us to find Madeleine. When the answer to that question is yes, or even possibly, our family can cope with anything. What follows is an intensely personal account, and I make no apology for that.
Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl. I am sure this book will reenergize the search for our daughter and the public will get behind the Find Madeleine campaign once again. It is simply not acceptable that the authorities have given up on Madeleine—especially when no comprehensive review of the case has been undertaken. Our daughter, and whoever took her, are out there. I hoped to be able to read the book and find something that made me think that all the bad press was just that but unfortunately all I found was myself becoming irritated by quotes and actions of a seemingly carefree 'mother'.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book. I've always felt that there was 'something' not right about the whole situation and have never warmed to the McCann's.
I found it a really hard book to read, as a mother I was constantly relating it to my child - what if that had happened to me? In all honesty, I had to keep I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book. In all honesty, I had to keep reminding myself that there were a lot of questions unanswered and ultimately at the end of the day they had left their children on their own, not just for one evening, but for every evening of the the holiday and they paid the ultimate price.

The void that surprised me personally whilst reading was a lack of clarity on what is actively being done now country by country and locality and locality to help locate the child they BELIEVE as missing presumed alive. It must indeed be a minefield to use the possible champion understatement of the year but this information could have been helpful to the reader and thus to the writer. What is admirable is that Kate McCann appears to talk candidly and honestly about some of the negative and potentially scathing treatment that both she and her husband received at the hands of the Portuguese police during a series of interviews where they were near-enough framed as murderers and perpetrators of the crime.
I think Kate and Gerry wrote too much details and facts, that made the story get boring. In all honesty, I had to keep reminding myself that there were a lot of questions unanswered and ultimately at the end of the day they had left their children on their own, not just for one evening, but for every evening of the the holiday and they paid the ultimate price. McCann, Kate It was uncomfortable when she brought it up the first time, and even worse when she mentioned that she was able to start enjoying things again, and that she and Gerry began to work on their relationship and getting their sex life back. On 20 April, a bedraggled-looking man asked a tourist in her apartment near 5A for money for an orphanage in nearby Espiche ; apparently there were no orphanages or similar in or near Espiche at the time.
Let it be said, many people just would not be able to deal with this in any public or private way whatsoever. So what of the lasting impressions of the book? Is it honest? It appears candidly so. Was it detailed? Exceedingly so. But do I still have outstanding questions relating back to the crime committed in May ? Any book that we read can lead us to develop a more informed opinion and line of thinking.
Reading this has helped me to do this and as a result I will not be discussing any of my further thoughts via this forum. Of course, the true victim of this situation was Madeleine herself and I can only wish her peace wherever she is now. Feb 10, Leah rated it liked it.

I find Kate's recount of the events seem truthful.

The half-hourly checks were not even satisfactory for discovering a child distressed by being left alone in my opinion. If nothing else I take away from this book that the safety precautions I take for my kids are not being paranoid and should continue to just be part of life I take for granted like carseats and seat belts. That said, this is an error that should have been able to be made without consequence I wish the McCanns the best in their efforts to find out what happened to Madeleine.
It would be such a joyful miracle if Madeleine was found alive and reunited with her family. Jan 03, Sarah rated it really liked it. I have always been very interested in the Madeleine McCann case and followed events in detail over the last 4 years so, not surprisingly, when reading this I didn't learn a lot of new information.
What was interesting though, was seeing things from Kate's view but I found the excuses she makes for leaving the children alone each night, even after they had been upset and cried the previous night, pathetic and upsetting. Kate is clearly distraught and angry and the book, although very interesting I have always been very interested in the Madeleine McCann case and followed events in detail over the last 4 years so, not surprisingly, when reading this I didn't learn a lot of new information. Kate is clearly distraught and angry and the book, although very interesting and detailed forms harrowing reading, but it does show the great lengths they went to to "leave no stone unturned" even if, very sadly, it does all seem to me too much, too late - a true case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.
The sheer exhausting job of sifting through legal processes and evidence that the McCanns now find themselves having to do is thought provoking and admirable. I truly h i thoroughly enjoyed this book. I truly hope that the McCanns finally get to the bottom of their beloved childs disappearance and find some peace one way or another.

Couldn't put it down - and I warmed to Kate as a person far more than I have done through the media.
Well worth a read, if only from the point of view of admiring the strength of the human spirit. Mar 28, Dasha rated it did not like it Shelves: trash , moronic-trash. Disgusting POS parents.

Almost like she was an object. For reference, watch their interviews. There really is no excuse. Can't Disgusting POS parents. Can't believe the number of morons supporting these parents. They may not have sold their kid, or drugged her, or been directly responsible for her disappearance, but they left their toddlers alone; And just the response itself - they refused to cooperate, sued detectives who actually wanted to get to the bottom of this case their ties to Clement Freud, for one, which have been swept under the rug by the MSM coverage of these cases , and seem like absolute narcissists, overall.
The fact that they aren't being prosecuted just shows how privileged these people are, just by virtue of being doctors - if they had been normal, working or middle class people, they would have both been prosecuted and charged. And then these asses proceed to capitalize on the disappearance of their child. What better way to show what kind of people they are? I hope the universe comes back to bite them.

Kate McCann's very personal account of those torturous years. A testament to the human spirit in the face of unbelievable adversity. After reading this book, I gave more credibility to the notion that my case may well have affected theirs, and not just the other way around, such is the detail in the time-line. I thought the account of their negative treatment by the police and the media was balanced given the utter frustration at the impact it was having on their search prospects. Most people wo Kate McCann's very personal account of those torturous years. Most people would probably have expected several pages worth of expletives, but as the book supports the ongoing search, they rose above that to maximise its worth for that goal.
I have followed the story intensely in the media since it tragically burst onto the world stage in But it was quite absorbing to get the McCanns' perspective even though I knew the general story. They really should receive everyone's unreserved support. They are human beings after all, suffered every parents worst nightmare and are still missing their daughter.
