review of shadow of the titanic, 1 Jan 2012
a really excellent read. I dont read very many books but this one I couldnt put down.
I live within 10 miles of the shipyards where Titanic was built and anticipate getting a little titanic fatgue in the next few months. However this is different - what happened to the survivors is fascinating. Many lives were simply blighted. Almost as if they cheated death and then paid for that. I guess many people were simply changed that night and we know now that survivors do suffer terrible guilt after an event like this. Reading the book makes you wonder however how balanced some people were to begin with.
