    One thought on “Breaking Silence”

    1. This was a hard book to read, but also a hard book to put down Hard to read, as the mother of the Kahui twins is very frank, and reading about her and Chris Kahui s childhoods is heart breaking How easy for us to judge quickly, as the Facebook campaign seems to have done, without at least allowing Macsyna King to have a chance to give another side of the story.Don t read this book if you want to find out who did it but read it and maybe sense that here is a woman who has lost her two young child [...]

    2. This is the book that resulted in a Facebook hate page and consumer threats to boycott any shops that sold it people wanted this book banned But let us remember that the role of non fiction material is to inform, to educate, to enlighten, and to allow an author to voice an opinion based on evidential research Non fiction material is instrumental in clarifying issues, changing a reader s opinions, and altering people s preconceived notions And remember, the people who wanted this book banned had [...]

    3. Ian Wishart did himself no favours raising the old vitamin C vaccination argument, nor was I convinced Middle Hospital covered up apnoea attacks to save their skin in case of later potential harm Clearly the reader is convinced of Chris Kahuis guilt because Wishart does deftly join the dots on the time line Social workers, nurses, police all fumble in this book but with no solid conviction there remains doubt about cross agency competency The media were the only winners and that includes Mr Wish [...]

    4. This was a very interesting and sad story to read Being a new zealander well half cook island half nz european I remember hearing about this case when I was 16 I did not know much about it except from what I heard about it at the time Being able to read this and learn facts about it is just really tragic The child abuse and death rate in new zealand quite, especially in the pacific island maori demographic and also in the south auckland area is not uncommon It was heartbreaking to read about ho [...]

    5. Macsyna, mother of the Kahui twins who died under mysterious circumstances, shares her story in this book by Ian Wishart IIan also includes research into the medical issues premature babies have to overcome after they are born the culture in hospitals of treating just about all unexplained child injuries as parent inflicted and the media frenzy which follows, leaving the reader to wonder about NZ s so called child abuse epidemic I did feel for Macsyna and appreciated her frankness while admittin [...]

    6. A difficult topic A highly controversial issue A brave book It changed my perspective and confirmed that newspapers often get the wrong end of the stick The book won t tell you what really happened, but at least you ll find out what didn t happen.

    7. When the heart breaking horror of the Kahui Twins murder hit the media, I was a new Mum of my second child, and this story had an emotional impact on me immediately, the media whipped up the case to fever pitched and it was aimed solely at discrediting Macsyna King as a mother The that came out about the case the I realised the media had once again slanted the story Ian Wisharts brilliant investigative skills, in publishing this story have given Macsyna King the chance to tell the heartbreakin [...]

    8. The most controversial book of 2011 This is a MUST read, it will make you form a well researched opinion about The Kahui Case Wishart has formulated this book very well and Macsyna s version of events are honest and heart wrenching I thank Macsyna for telling her side of the story one in which she never got to do so this book really goes deep into her life and thoughts Before you judge her, blame her or curse her, read this book.

    9. This book was very controversial when it was released but I decided to read it to see for myself I had no issue with the book It provided an insight into the twins deaths.
