I was so disappointed with this story. I had heard from many people how much they had enjoyed the film and I was really looking forward to reading it on my kindle. However, apart from the very beginning and the end it was not about Philomena and her quest to find her son, but a biography of the son, about his political career and about his being gay and the problems that arose from that situation. I can truly say that it was the worse book I have read for a long time and it left me cold. The title was very misleading. I am looking forward to seeing the film as I can only assume that the story on the film is nothing like the story in the book.
