Titanic, First Accounts: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) Reviews
Well documented book. Many of the statements from survivors become repetitive, but reading through them is like being there in the dark of a cold night in a lifeboat. And these were the lucky ones, as so many perished both in the sinking ship and the freezing cold water. A goodly number of victims are buried in a Halifax cemetery I recently visited, many with stones marked "unknown." Quite a few victims are buried in Eastern Canada cemeteries. It is a somber experience to visit the graves and think about that fateful night and how the people suffered.
I love history and with the anniversary of this tragic event I was compelled to read more. This is an easy read and the first hand accounts provide a different insight often not included in television documentaries. It does however bring many questions to the readers mind as many first hand accounts were disregarded by the authorities at the time and even in many of todays publications. An important read to get the whole picture.
most interesting book for me
This book was engrossing and I didn't want it to end. It was heart-breaking but interesting and it takes you on the voyage and the deck of the ship at times. Although it has been over 100 years since all this happened, it takes you right there, and it is fascinating.
Everyone who has read this loved it.
I love this cover illustration
You are there with the storytellers.
this is a EXCELLENT and VERY DETAILED account of this incredible disater. It is somewhat 'clinical'; not too much emotion or novelized accounting. Truly for the detailed oriented.
