Book Review - Titanic: Voices from the Disaster

Titanic: Voices from the Disaster
About the Book
Critically acclaimed nonfiction author Deborah Hopkinson pieces together the story of the TITANIC and that fateful April night, drawing on the voices of survivors and archival photographs.

Scheduled to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the TITANIC, a topic that continues to haunt and thrill readers to this day, this book by critically acclaimed author Deborah Hopkinson weaves together the voices and stories of real TITANIC survivors and witnesses to the disaster -- from the stewardess Violet Jessop to Captain Arthur Rostron of the CARPATHIA, who came to the rescue of the sinking ship. Packed with heartstopping action, devastating drama, fascinating historical details, loads of archival photographs on almost every page, and quotes from primary sources, this gripping story, which follows the TITANIC and its passengers from the ship's celebrated launch at Belfast to her cataclysmic icy end, is sure to thrill and move readers.

My Take on the Book
I have always been intrigued by the Titanic disaster. From the movies and books that have been written, I find it interesting to find out more about the ship, its crew and the passengers upon the boat. This book goes so much deeper than many of the books and does bring in the voices of the people from the boat itself. The book is full of great facts and figures and any person that is either new to learning about the disaster or even soneone like me who really enjoys reading about it, you will come to find that this book is a must read!
