Not a stupid spin off,
This review is from: Titanic 2020: 1: Titanic 2020: Bk. 1 (Paperback)
Okay, you see the title and the word 'Titanic' and think, oh great some stupid spin off. Thats what I did and I was sorely, sorely mistaken. This book is a great bit of literary gold that doesn't seem to be getting a lot of the publicity and attention that I think it should get. The story is very compelling, the new Titanic is more like a setting rather than the actual plot of the story.
There's a disease spreading, the red death, people are dying across the world and Lucky Jimmy Armstrong is lucky enough to stowaway on the Titanic just before the disease starts to spread. Or is he lucky when the disease finds it way onto the ship? It's all very dramatic and a few bits seem a little far fetched but all together this book is very hard to put down and a great start to what looks to be a very promising series.
