1.0 out of 5 stars A huge disappointment, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone buying this book expecting to read a account of a mother's search for her lost son, either on the basis of its title or after seeing the film, should prepare themselves to be hugely disappointed and frustrated. With the exception of a few pages at the end it does not tell the story of Philomena Lee's search for Anthony/Michael. The book is essentially a biography of Michael Hess but it is written almost in the style of a novel. The style is the other issue I have because it results in much of the content taking the form of surmised situations and conversations rather than providing a documentary narrative of Michael's life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 22 Oct 2010
This does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a great product that is incredibly easy to set up and get working. I had one question (and that was down to a senior moment on my part - not realising that the switch in the lead controlled the lights!) that was answered really quickly and comprehensively through the email help service on the Kinobo website. It's hard to think of a better product for someone wanting a value-for-money freestanding webcam
