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.

Wonderfully researched book that reads like a novel. You won't be able to put it down even though you know how it turns out.

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

If youre 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.

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.

This is the story of the "unsinkable" Titanic. She was four city blocks long, with the latest, most ingenious safety devices; a French "side-walk cafe," private promenade decks -- but only twenty lifeboats for the 2,207 passengers on board. 1977 38th printing by Bantam

In my oppion the best book about Titanic anyone can read. I own about 20 different Titanic books, and this one is hands down the best. Kudos to Walter Lord!

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

This was a great rendition of the story of the sinking of the Titanic. It is the true story that puts the disaster in easy to understand terms. Many times, the listener feels they are right there as it is happening. Sometimes you want to scream, and many times, do cringe, at some of the mis-steps that brought about the tragedy. Martin Jarvis reads it exceptionally well, and it is not so long as to get tedious or boring.
