This review is from: Farewell, Titanic: Her Final Legacy (Hardcover)
Thank you Mr. Pellegrino for the most beautifully written, emotional and factual book ever written on the Titanic. Charles Pellegrino is an archaeologist, historian and explorer who has the ability to write a very moving account past and present on the Titanic which is a pleasure to read. Not only are there chilling first hand accounts told by survivors that I have never heard about before, but also this book covers Charles Pellegrino's personal account, of his involvement with James Cameron and other members of the last expedition down to the Titanic wreck and the most surprising and wonderous finds. There is even an account of a connection with 911, which is very informative and moving. As Charles Pellegrino states in the book: "Sooner or later it was bound to happen: the convergence of improbable events compounded by a series of improbable errors. Without exception, no single improbable error or event causes complex systems to fail, and that is the frightening part". How very true this statement is!
I felt very connected with all the events in this book, thanks to the brilliantly moving writing skills of Charles Pellegrino.
I will treasure this book always!
