★ Titanic ★
It has been more than one hundred years since the RMS Titanic sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic ocean. The disaster has captivated history buffs and non-history buffs alike, and it is easy to see why. Some of the most illustrious people of the day were on board: some survived, and some did not. Legends abound about whether the ship’s maiden voyage was cursed. And then there is the ship itself: arguably the most luxurious vessel to ever travel oversea.

Inside you will read about...
✓ Conceiving of and Building the Titanic
✓ “The Ship of Dreams”
✓ Setting Sail
✓ The Passengers
✓ The Iceberg and the Sinking
✓ The Aftermath
✓ The Titanic Remembered and Re-Discovered

The disaster holds secrets and stories of love and bravery, cowardice and greed. Explore these and other themes that surround the sinking of the grand ship, Titanic.

I really enjoyed reading this story about the RMS Titanic, the so-called 'Unsinkable Ship.' Everyone is the world has got to know the story of the Titanic that sank in 1912 but there's always a whole lot more to learn about it and its dramatic voyage. That's why it was such a good read.

My favorite chapters were about the ship setting sail and especially the chapter of 'Passengers.' It contained a lot of information both about well known survivors and the ones who perished with the ship. The aftermath was also pretty interesting to read about, I must say.

It was also interesting to read about when the Titanic got rediscovered in 1985 by Robert Ballard. Because of this we know so much more about the ship that was a mystery before. I also liked how this book delved into the subject of why this disaster is the one that is most memorable. Very intriguing!

  2. I've always been fascinated by the Titanic story. This book sounds like it has a lot of great, specific information. Nice review!
