This book is perfect in every way. Whether you are just starting to get interested in Titanic or if you're like myself, have been interested in Titanic for many many years. I must admit at first I was wary of the book because I thought it might have been like most books I have on Titanic, what say the same thing over and over, and I thought I knew everything. But after sitting down and reading this book even after the first page, I was so happy to read things that I have never heard or seen before. Its easy reading, and drags you in the more you read on. I was so dragged into it, I read it in a day.
I love how Tim has set out at the contents page, listing every theory in number, then sets out thoroughout the book, each number and evidence to back up whether its true, false or a possibility. Even some websites where you can see pictures or read stories about Titanic. Its books like this one, what keeps Titanics memory, and story alive, even after 98 years after its sinking.
I love how its got thick pages and hardback cover, and this will be one book I will be keeping to read again and again plus to past down to my daughter when shes old enough to read it and appreciate the story.
The only downside of this book I found was, it could of done with a couple of pictures of maybe Titanic before and after it sunk, and pictures of some passengers what are mentioned in the book, so you can put images to the reading. But it was such a good book, that even without pictures, i couldnt put it down!
