Format: Paperback
This is truly a must for all who want to read more about the REAL story of the night the Titanic went down, as told by several who were there, and survived. Once you start reading this it's impossible to put down. The book is a compilation of other books, and newspaper stories printed at the time this happened, and there has been no editing or other changes made to make it more for this era. It is as it should be....with the true feelings and experiences of the survivors, as well some exerpts from the official hearings that were held to determine who or where the responsibility for this tragedy should fall upon. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more of the actual events that occured this very tragic night that so many lives were lost.

I was not prepared for the poignancy and vivid details that the survivors provided. I, too, am convinced that James Cameron did a thorough job in researching his topic before the movie. Every book I read, while it repeats some of the known details provides new insights from new perspectives. The compilation of the four survivors has had me on the edge of my seat in realizing how utterly calm the passengers were and how much times have changed. Anyone interested in continuing their reading on the many faces of Titanic should not skip this one.

Format: Paperback
I'm a bit sceptical when it comes to reading items on the most famous liner in the world, after watching the films that Hollywood churned out during the years about the disaster. I was pleasantly surprised by this book, it is gripping, enthralling and gives you an, often sad, insight into the last hours if the Titanic.

The eyewitness accounts by the survivors are well written, and are accompanied by very good illustrations. At times the book is a little too detailed, but I would recommend it to any Titanic enthusiast.

Format: Paperback
This book gives four informative, exciting, compelling accounts of the Titanic tragedy. The Lightholler report, being the only survivor amongst the senior officers & quite liberally mentioned by the other authors, is particularly interesting. The stoic response by the vast majority of obviously doomed male passengers to the prospect of drowning in sub-zero temperature water, as they stood orderly by, or assisted in the loading of women & children in the life-boats, is quite staggering. One of the storytellers has a sad, old-fashioned tendency to describe many of the non-English speaking survivors in very disparaging terms. Indeed, Gracie quite often comes across as annoyingly pompous in his descriptions. On the other hand the short report of the surviving wirelessman is totally unstuffy & hugely readable. The inquiries' treatment of Ismay, the President of Titanic's Company & a survivor against all the odds for single males, is particularly interesting . The book also highlights some of the movie's mistakes, especially the breaking off of the stern section prior to sinking. On the whole a good book & worth buying.

Format: Paperback
Vivid, chilling, extremely well written accounts of the Titanic disaster from passengers who survived. As if Joseph Conrad had been on board and lived to tell the tale. No hype. No melodrama. Just several horrific, suspenseful accounts from a few of the officers who remained until the bitter end. I started reading this book one night and couldn't put it down until 6 in the morning.

Format: Paperback
Overall, this book was virtually impossible to put down. To hear the story of the Titanic as told by some of its survivors, puts you right there in the water with them. There are only two drawbacks to this book. The first one is that the English written in 1912's vernacular is sometimes a bit cumbersome. The second one is that Archibald Gracie's book, while interesting, sometimes gets bogged down in details. However, despite some minor drawbacks for the 90's reader, I would recommend this book for anyone with even a slight interest in the story of the Titanic beyond what we got to see in James Cameron's movie.

Format: Paperback
As a researcher for a tv show I needed the titanic history fast. This provided it in a very entertaining way. Now I am trawling through the court transcripts but the book gave me a good sounding in the disaster. Well worth the read. I would also recomend A Night To Remember which is a fantastic book and sets out the tone of multiple narratives so well all would be cinema fans should look to the book for inspiration.
