Description

The last Titanic book I read was done and dusted in a couple of hours.

The last Titanic book I read was done and dusted in a couple of hours. The bits I did enjoy in this book was the middle section. If you want to hear every single little detail about how the Titanic was built, how much each little item of cutlery cost, then read it. If I was to read this again, I would skip maybe the first 40 pages.

All the rich and glorious people on board and the horrors of the 3rd Class passengers and the bravery and selfishness and the selflessness and everything in between. This is one of the most educational books I have read about the titanic. It contains the personal I have been reading this book forever. I got it for Christmas a few years ago and it has lived in the bathroom ever since. I am utterly fascinated by the Titanic. The story of the ship who built it, how it was built, why it was built.

Two clarifications to my earlier post. 1) "The Mammoth Book of the Titanic" will be published by Constable and Robinson under their Robinson imprint. 2) The April 2002 release date is regarded as "provisional.

The story of the sinking of the great liner Titanic has been told countless times since that fateful night on April 14, 1912, by authors and film producers alike, but no accounts are as graphic or revealing as those from people who were actually there. Through survivors' tales and contemporary newspaper reports from both sides of the Atlantic, The Mammoth Book of the Titanic strips away the Hollywood gloss and tells the real story of the "unsinkable" vessel. Here are eyewitness accounts full of details that range from poignant to humorous as they follow the Titanic, stage by stage, from its glorious launch in Belfast to the somber sea burial services of those who perished on her first and only voyage.

This book has a lot of details that a lot of people wouldn't like but as for me having a large collection of Titanic books I love to read anything new. A lot of the stories printed at the time of the disaster were exaggerated but just as many were told from people who gave their own personal experience which I find very interesting.Besides that there were a lot of stories, not just a few. This book will also be a good reference if I decide I want more information at a later time about the the building of the ship. I bought it at a reasonable price and enjoyed it.

I'll read anything to do with the Titanic, but from now on, I'm going to purchase more carefully (or I'll tell other people to do so, this was a Christmas present!) This is one of the most tedious Titanic books I've ever read. (Maybe I've read too many? I own 12!) At 500+ pages long, it doesn't beat the latest Harry Potter book, but with that amount of detail in a book, it took me a fair few weeks to plough through, and that's saying something! The last Titanic book I read was done and dusted in a couple of hours.
The bits I did enjoy in this book was the middle section. If you want to hear every single little detail about how the Titanic was built, how much each little item of cutlery cost, then read it. If I was to read this again, I would skip maybe the first 40 pages. The latter section of the book, is mainly the trial thing after the Titanic sinking. The first part is OK, with all the witnesses accounts of the sinking, but then it starts to review it all, and it's so dull!
Also with this book, there are a LOT of press cuttings - with the majority being very repetitive. The most interesting in this are the survivor's stories of what happened before and happened after the Titanic sank. There are a lot of glaring inconsistencies during these reports, some of which are exaggerated so much, that they're almost the style of a Hollywood blockbuster (hmmmmmmmmmm). It's quite funny when you read these survivor's accounts, especially one after the other (the accounts are ordered as to what lifeboat the survivor's got off on ie. all the boats on boat 15 are all grouped together). Obviously some of the survivors would have been deeply shocked after this tragedy, but some of them are so overly exaggerated, it's actually hilarious.
A good book to have if you're a Titanic fan. If you start getting bored, skip to the chapter. Would save a lot of time!
