I've been somewhat amused by how narcissistic this woman is... she blames the police and or anybody for the disappearance of an innocent little toddler. The book is about her and what she demands people to think, it doesn't answer any questions and she still maintains that they did nothing wrong and were correct in leaving their babies sleeping in an unlocked foreign apartment so they could drink alcohol and socialize with their friends (who also all left their children alone and unsupervised). I have no sympathy for her and certainly did not want to read about her bazaar thoughts regarding paedophiles or references to her sex life. It's pathetic to be force fed into what we must think and believe, she dismisses the dogs and seems to be trying to account for her callous behaviour after the disappearance - she's nit picking the police statements when she should be reading those of her friends and analysing those in the first instance. If she truly is sorry and anxious to find the innocent little girl she should answer those all important questions and then the public may be more sympathetic. Also the matter that she will sue anyone one voicing opinions is suspicious.

Couldn't get into this book, gave up after about a 1/4 of it. Its not really about Madeleine as the title suggests, more about how her mother felt more sorry for herself than her missing 3 year old. Probably wont get round to finishing it.

read this book as i had read all the police files and wanted their side ,what i found was a bitter woman unable to take the blame for something they caused,a woman who refused to answer 48 question's and slated Martin Grimes dogs, dogs that did great work for the F.B.I. SORRY KATE DOGS DON'T LIE

Just a few points:

Why are there NO photographs of Maddie in PdL in the book? Not even 'the last photograph' by the pool?
Why are there MORE photographs of Kate and Kate and Gerry, than of Maddie?
Why were her health records denied to the Portuguese police? It is standard procedure in most police forces.
Why was there no uncontaminated DNA in the apartment and it had to be collected from Rothley?
Why didn't they use the free nanny service for the evenings? The same nannies who looked after the children during the day, so hardly strangers.
Why did they still leave Maddie alone when she told them in the morning she'd been crying the previous night and why had they not come?

Most of the book dealt with Kate McCann's life, the holiday merits one chapter - we learn nothing about Maddie, her likes and dislikes, things she said. What she created in the creche. Where is all that stuff that mothers can't stop talking about?

I think I would have demanded I got a lie detector done if people thought I may have killed my own daughter. Why haven't the McCanns done one? I wonder......

Poorly written, seems more like an appeal eo you feel sorry for them and donate more money to the fund!

Very one sided and it appears they do not want any opinion other than their own to be heard, they do not acknowledge any failings in themselves or if they could have done anything to prevent this.

I was left with the opinion, if this was a working class family who this had happened to, there would be no sympathy, tv appearances and a "spokesperson" and social services would be all over them for leaving their children unattended. That is unbelievible, but seems to have been "erased" from this account.

Despite the fact that her picture adorns the front cover, this book is not about Madeleine McCann. If you were hoping by the end of it to know more about Madeleine, to feel as if she was a real little girl, then you will be sorely disappointed. Madeleine is a bit part player in the story that bears her name. This book is about her mother.

Although ''Madeleine'' leaves you with no 'sense' of Madeleine herself, it may afford you with an insight into Kate McCann's personality you could have happily lived without. Does she come over as a grieving mother? No. Does she come across as an angry, vengeful and spiteful woman? You bet she does.
Because this is a book about blame and getting even. Kate McCann blames everyone bar herself and her husband for the circumstances which led to their three year old daughter vanishing. There is no sense of anguish that at the time whatever happened to Madeleine was happening, they were not there, having decided that dinner came before sons and daughters. What there is, however, is a series of montages where Kate exacts revenge on those she appears to regard as ''the enemy'' or who appear to have offended her overwhelming sense of her own importance. So we are treated to her spiteful description of casually dressed police officers, too busy doing their job to fawn all over her, offering refreshments; plummy-voiced neighbours whose offer of help was met with a shouted obscenity and law enforcement officers who had the temerity to speak their native tongue in their native land. Even the priest is singled out for having a face that was too ''cheery'' for her liking.
