Amazon comments on THAT book

Post by Tony Bennett on 30.11.10 13:09

It appears there is far from universal support for the McCanns' forthcoming 'very truthful' book about what really happened to Madeleine McCann, judging by the initial reactions of the first 5 to comment on Amazon.

Here they are before someone at Amazon goes: 'Whoosh - CLUNK':

Madeleine

When there is so much doubt surrounding the night of May the 3rd 2007 wouldnt the McCann's time have been, better spent returning to Portugal and helping to re-open the case by taking part in a reconstruction of the events of that evening rather than writing some self- serving tome that will help not one jot in the search for Madeleine ?

Unhappy Customer says:

Perhaps the McCanns and their seven friends should have agreed to help the police and they should have taken part in a reconstruction. Rather than refusing to take part - as this didn't help the "search" and only added to the suspicions surrounding them and their seven friends. Their version of the events of the 3rd of May 2007 is confusing and at times contradictory. Perhaps this book will be a way of them "re-explaining" their version of the story. But wouldn't helping the police be easier and better and quicker? I mean - a child is missing.

Somewhere says:

I can't help but think that the book will exist entirely of a long-winded monologue on the subject of how hard done by the McCanns have been. Forget the fact that millions of pounds have been raised with the help of schoolchildren and OAPs, some of which was used to pay the mortgage of the McCann's house, and to pay for the robust defense of the McCanns 'good name'; I think the McCanns must feel very hard done by the fact a few people choose not to forget that a *three year old child* and *two year old twins* were left unattended on a dark night - the fact that Kate and Gerry were drinking the night away only makes the situation more heinous. And now she is gone. How can Kate blame the police, when she refused to answer the 48 questions asked of her?

Not Impressed says:

The parents never refused to take part in a reconstruction, that's an outright lie. Not even possible legally! Some of the other witnesses did refuse to go, their reasons for doing so may be read in full at the Maddiecasefiles site. And no, I wouldn't have gone either in their shoes.
I very much look forward to reading the book, it's about time their side was heard above the din of the self-opinionated and partially informed who have fallen willing victim to a sustained campaign of vilification started in Portugal by elements of the police. A campaign which was noted and exposed by the President of the Portuguese Bar Association, among many others.

Sugar Plum says:

The PP made it implicit in his archiving dispatch that by not attending the reconstruction the MCCanns had failed clear up major discrepancies that existed in their statements and therefore had given up the chance to clear themselves of all suspicion.

To say that the McCanns did not refuse to go to the reconstruction, while technically true, belies the hard reality that they colluded with their holiday friends in order to scupper the reconstruction from the very beginning. Why were they so scared to reconstruct that night ? Surely if they were telling the truth about the sequence of events a reconstruction would have removed all suspicion from the McCann and helped to re- focus the investigation in another direction. Of course if their had been a reconstruction perhaps the PJ may not have been so willing as Edgar in the mockumentary to accept Gerry's claim that he was on the right side of the road during the Tanner sighting . This was in spite of Tanner and Wilkins both saying he was on the left hand side.

Also if the reconstruction had gone ahead it would have been abundantly clear that Tanner could not have walked past Gerry and Wilkins on the narrow street they were chatting on and not be noticed and could not have made out the details she claims to have seen regarding both Madeleine and the alleged abductor, due to distance and poor lighting.

The reconstruction should have been done ...so should the questions have been answered....it ha been said but if you are telling the truth there is nothing to fear especially when you should want to do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to help find your little girl imo you would not have one single thing to fear ....unless you feared you would incriminate yourself as being involved....if you did not have a clear conscience....conscience can play a part when you are not telling the truth so the best bet would be to stay silent like k mcc did........

so many times they have voiced their concerns that this that and the other could harm the search for maddie....yet they themselves could have proved beyond doubt they were not involved....by answering questions/reconstruction/lie detector....yet chose to not do any of them ...because they know they are involved........it can only be the one reason they know they are lying.....

one thing alone in my mind ...the fact they left the twins in the creche when they were away ...said it all [apart from the other 101 things]....they knew it was safe to leave them ..there was no abductor....and the book they have wrote is only going to continue the lie...until some one has the courage [who can] stop them in their tracks ...and start caring what has happened to maddie....want answers .....not what is happening to the mccs


may i take this opportunity also thank and admire you for all that you do on behalf of maddie and us tony x

Another disappearance? There seem to have been far too many disappearances in this case. One was only speaking to somebody recently with regard to some photographs of FSS workers having disappeared from the internet. There is no doubt that the many media monitors are being vigilant in their work to make all comments about these people disappear. Prime Ministers and Presidents have rarely been afforded this level of protection.

It may be a good idea to hoist all material directly into Wikileaks for safe-keeping. Albeit various governments are branding them a terrorist organisation en ce moment.

Transparency and democracy seem destined never to marry.

The response to censorship

Well, that is kind, but as I'm sure you know there are hundreds out there who contribute, in all sorts of ways, to the search for final answers about what really happened to Madeleine McCann. Take the superlative work done at mccannfiles, for example, and on other research forums.

I think we have a message - and I believe in trying to get that message out from the forums and over to the general public.

That is necessary whenever the mainstream media censor proper debate and discussion of an important subject.

Those who make dubious claims about what has happened to their missing child should expect to be challenged.

What I dont understand who whoosh clunck those comments at Amazon, because they are not UK based are they? Well, even if they are, then it wont be wrong to assume complaints were received by Amazon.
Why is it only the pros are making a fuss over anti abduction comments.

Anyway, if the posts were not abusive, only fair views of readers, how can any media justify the whoosh clunck?

Even if the mccanns personally lodged those complaints that still does not justify the deletion because surely people are entitled to their opinions so long as the posts are not derogatory.

Perhaps they - Amazon UK itself AND the pros - are justified because the book hasn't even been published yet; how can anyone comment on it? Once it is published, that will be a different matter.

Incidentally, I've checked the Amazon USA and France sites and they, too, are listing that book. Other Amazon sites presumably have it too. We'll have fun

Seriously...the media with their propaganda comments just make me really sick. They are only saying these things so they can make money...this is their only motive and they will saying ANYTHING

None of them has a shred of decency to care about Maddie....let alone the society what used to make GB great

They may well feel high and mighty with all the money they are coining in...The reality is they are pathetic and are letting this whole country down

You have to agree with that. No matter that when they do raise funds they squander them on crooked PIs and goodness knows what.

Don't forget that these journalists/papers will set up an innocent being if it sells their rag, its a rat race between them and they believe in their own hype that they are somehow important in this society (which in truth is just laughable).....Its all they care about. They have no morals

Well said JD - remember also that the McCanns and Carter-Ruck make sure they are careful what they say also.

It's not the raising it's the spending

Well, apparently I am a McCann hater(Ms. Ellen, I never bother to hate anyone, takes up time and space I don't wish to give, I simply dislike these people and object to being told lies, besides, anyone harming children or animals has already left the human race IMO).

It isn't even the fund raising I object so much as the actual spending. You see, Ms. Ellen, it simply isn't a transparent company and the money doesn't seem to go on looking for Madeleine but much more on keeping the press and the lawyers in jobs.

Why don't you for once print the tiniest snippet of truth about the whole affair, even something as simple as the 49.2 metres between the bar and 5a?
Which was over a 100 metres on the ground and that 5a was almost hidden from view, that the children's room was on the other side? Not visible from the bar at all?
Or why Sky news was told of the abduction before they phoned the police?
Or why they never searched for Madeleine? This is on video although, according to the book they looked for a whole hour the following morning.

I don't hate the McCanns.

But I do hate the way the government, police and media are protecting these child neglecting criminals whilst punishing other child neglecting criminals. I hate the injustice, the lies, the brainwashing and everything else that stops Madeleine receiving the justice she deserves. There is a difference between hating people and hating what people do.

some recent comments :


Such a sad story, but at least it gives you a view of what really happened and not what the tabloids tell us.

Such a sad but honest read

I found Kate Mccanns rendition cold and clinical and very contrived. i
have read the official fiiles on [...] and Kate Mccanns version is very
different to theirs.

A brutally honest account of how you cope in the aftermath of one of the
world's most infamous missing person cases. It is about a mother's love
a nation's shock and a world's horror


I couldn't finish reading this book.
Kate McCann in my opinion comes
across as a very vindictive women who is hell bent on bad mouthing
anyone who does not agree with her version of events.She does little to
warm the reader.
I found her to be a cold hearted,self centred and totally lacking as a caring mother.
For me her writing shows a lack of remorse for the vunerable position she left her three children in.
Her descriptive writing left me aghast particulary as she says she wrote the book as a truthful account for her twins.
Do they really need to know about her lack of sexual appetite for Jerry?
No they do not and neither do we.
This
book is entitled 'Madeleine'yet there there is little about this child
in the book.The reader has nothing to hold on too. There is no visual
imagery in the written word.It left me cold.
Lots about Kate and her early life and lots about her feelings and emotions.Says it all really.



Amazing insight into the otherside of the story not told by the media in
relation to this incident. Provides insightful facts into the terrible
situation but also shows such strength of character


This could be any normal family, it is every parents worst nightmare and
yet it is the McCann`s reality. A very brave and honest fight against
the abductors, the police and the media ! Highly recommend as a MUST
read to help find Madeleine McCann.


I can't begin to understand what Madeleine's family are going through. It is a true account of a terrible happening


The whole truth
