Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"You won't find a more moving and powerful account of love and loss" (Douglas Wight News of the World)

"Madeleine is not only an impressive and well-written chronicle of a terrible crime, it is a must-read because someone out there knows something" (James Murray Sunday Express)

"Powerful... Kate's book blazes with the sheer, visceral force of her love for her daughter" (Sandra Parsons Daily Mail)

"Mrs McCann writes honestly about her torment" (Robert Mendick Sunday Telegraph)

"It's hard to read these words without wanting to weep" (Christina Patterson Independent)

Présentation de l'éditeur

'The decision to publish this book has been very difficult, and taken with heavy hearts ... My reason for writing it is simple: to give an account of the truth ... Writing this memoir has entailed recording some very personal, intimate and emotional aspects of our lives. Sharing these with strangers does not come easily to me, but if I hadn't done so I would not have felt the book gave as full a picture as it is possible for me to give. As with every action we have taken over the last five 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 ... Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl.'

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Maddie 14 juin 2011
Par J. Paris
Format:Relié
j'ai acheté ce livre uniquement pour soutenir la cause de l'auteur et lui venir en aide dans ses recherches. Je vous engage vivement à faire comme moi. Je ne lirai peut-être pas ce livre car il est trop triste et pour l'instant il n'existe qu'une version en anglais. JP

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Gets bogged down in the detail 1 juin 2011
Par Julia Flyte - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The story is well known. In May 2007, Kate and Gerry McCann and their three children went on holiday to a resort in Portugal, along with several friends and their children. The first few days of the holiday passed uneventfully, with the children spending most of their days in the kids club while the parents had tennis lessons and relaxed. In the evenings, the parents all got in the habit of leaving their children sleeping in their bedrooms while they dined in a nearby tapas restaurant, taking turns to go back and check on the children at regular intervals. Until one fateful evening when three year old Madeleine disappeared shortly after the 9pm check. The police were called, the media descended and the story became worldwide news.

This is Kate McCann's account of that holiday and the investigation that followed, based on the detailed diaries that she kept. The book captures the way she endlessly revisits the days before Madeleine's disappearance, looking for clues, wondering what errors of judgement she might have made. Madeleine had been very tired that night - could she have been drugged? Or just a worn out little girl on holiday? She had cried out the night before - was someone trying to get into the room? Or did one of the children simply have a bad dream? Was it a mistake to let the restaurant staff know that children were being left unattended in their bedrooms?

I can understand the way that you get lulled into the security of a holiday resort and forget that you are actually in a foreign country. Once Madeleine disappeared, this reality came home to the McCanns in a big way. Much as the French medical system was criticized after the death of Princess Diana, the Portuguese police procedures are criticized not just by the McCanns and their family, but by the British policeforce and media. Kate was frustrated by the absence of communication, by translation issues, the failure to interrogate more potential witnesses, the failure to follow up on promising leads.

I felt that the book could have done with a stronger editorial hand. There's a lot of detail, to the point that it gets overwhelming in parts, and it's not always coherently presented. For example she tells us that on the night in question their friend Matt did the 9.30pm check, but reported back that all was quiet. We don't find out until almost 100 pages later whether that meant that he went into the apartment at all, let along whether he visually checked the children. Witness sightings of men watching the apartment are also not mentioned until very late in the book.

However two things do emerge clearly: Kate's enormous guilt about what happened and her highly defensive personality. Every decision that she or Gerry made, whether it's about their parenting decisions or their quest to find their daughter, is justified. Looking around the internet and the way that every statement they make is endlessly scrutinized and judged partially explains that attitude. I suppose too, you would need to feel you'd made the best decisions that you could, or you'd go mad.

In the final chapters, Kate talks freely about how this entire experience has changed her and Gerry. The hate mail that she receives (letters that say "your daughter will be getting tortured and it's all because of you"). The dilemma she faces when her children misbehave in public and she feels she is being judged on how she interacts with them. Her guilt if she found herself enjoying anything.

In summary: an interesting read, but not as well written as I would have liked. Too long and it gets bogged down in irrelevant details. However it does give an insight into everything that the McCanns have gone through. If you dislike the McCanns, I'd advise giving it a miss: you are unlikely to feel differently about them from reading this book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Repellent--takes no blame and too much information 17 mai 2011
Par teabag - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
As ever, she takes no blame for her child's disappearance, though she and her husband left three children--a three year old and two year old twins--alone in an unlocked holiday apartment every night of their vacation so they could go out to eat and drink with friends. You couldn't see the doors where they sat, and you couldn't hear the sounds of a child being abducted (or a child crying for her parents, which had happened previous nights of the holiday). It was much farther away than the back yard (the McCann's claim) and if you're in the back yard and the kids are asleep, do you leave the front door unlocked? They left the apartment unlocked "in case of fire". Right. Madeleine was going to usher her brother and sister to safety?

These are two doctors. They know that if they learned a patient or a patient's parent had done that, they'd have to report the parents to the police. And still Kate claims they did "responsible parenting."

Despite that, the disappearance isn't the parents' fault at all. And despite the fact that the British and Portuguese police found absolutely no evidence of an abduction but think Madeleine died accidentally in the apartment, the McCanns insist that she must have been abducted--even waking and going outside to look for her parents isn't a possibility. No, it's got to be some mean man there's no trace of--not a fingerprint, not a hair, not a fiber.

Perhaps a spot of knock-out meds so the kids wouldn't cry? Once the McCanns were back in the apartment, Kate kept sticking a finger under the twins' noses, according to her best friend, who was with them. "Still breathing? Or are you going to die too??"

Kate McCann claims that she wrote this to aid in the search and for her children to read. How reporting on her sex life and describing the parents' violent, horrific idea of what might have happened to Madeleine in the hands of a child molester are going to help the search is unclear. And the thought that Kate wrote the book for her children, as she claims? So they get to read about Mom and Dad's sex life, and a description of what a pervert might do that is unnecessary, graphic, and so shocking that it made me nauseated? No. No. No sane parent with any sensitivity or love for her children could have written that "for her children."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 They Did It 13 juin 2014
Par Vince Cooper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was on the fence as to whether the McCanns killed Maddie, and by on the fence, I mean I never looked into it. I know when this story made the news; I had questions and suspicions of their involvement, but never really cared. One day I saw this book and thought, “Eh, why not?” As an investigator, unsolved crimes spark my curiosity. I have to say after reading this book; their side of the story; I believe they caused Maddie’s death. My conclusion comes solely from their story and things that simply do not make sense, do not match “typical” behavior, or that are simply out of character of the McCanns. These are things I look for during my job to assess someone’s guilt or innocence.

I won’t give you the exact reasons I believe this, I don’t want to taint your view and I don’t believe everyone has to agree with each other. If you firmly believe the McCann’s are guilty or you firmly believe they are innocent, this book will not change your mind. If you don’t have a firm opinion either way, this book might very well lead you to a firm opinion. This will either be a heartbreaking tale of a horrific ordeal this family went through and continues to go through, or this will be a sickening story of how two cold and callous people caused the death of their own daughter, then played every card they could to gain sympathy, get away with a crime, and as a collateral reward, made money from it. You read and you decide.

Fiction is what this is. I didn't pay for this rubbish. I downloaded a free copy.This book reconfirmed the parents guilt. If the dogs are so unreliable why are they being used again in Portugal to find Madeleines body? The Mcscams must carry on claiming Maddie is alive that way fools can keep donating to the fraudulent fund created minutes after the bogus abduction. These two so called parents are utterly transparent.

Being father of two daughters of whom one died

At least with our beloved daughter we did all that

Maddys parents do not know what happened and will never get rest .....
