This is arguably the definitive book on the sinking of the Titanic. It really was wonderful, but I wish it had been longer with even more information. However, you really do get a good sense of how this tragedy happened, how quickly it happened, and why the rescue response to this sinking giant was too little and too late. If you are at all interested in the Titanic, this is a must-read, since it is pretty much the backbone of Titanic histories.

If you read one book on the Titanic, this is the one it should be. It stays with you long after the last page.

I have a "thing" for books about the Titanic. While short, this is one of my favorite books on the subject.

Interesting to hear the different witness details, but the writing was rather choppy. No fluid story line. It did start to pick up pace toward the end though. Overall a pretty good book. Author didn't take any liberties.

If you’re a Titanic fan I highly recommend reading this chilling account based on the actual people who survived and the passengers on the Carpathia. Though eyewitness accounts of any great tragedy will differ from person to person the author did a great a job in retelling their stories. If you don't have any knowledge of a ships layout (like me) I recommend you have a diagram of the Titanic before you start reading this book to get a better understanding of where people were on the ship. The movie (outside of the love story) actually did a good job on depicting the night of the sinking.
