Superb book, well reseached and written, great illustrations and a must have book,
This review is from: RMS Titanic - The First Violin (Hardcover)I just love this book! It is well researched and written in a very easy to read way that draws you into the story. The illustrations are absolutely superb and the way they are interwoven with the unfolding story made me feel like I was actually there! This young musician certainly led an interesting life for his 21 years and the court case is just great, so easy to understand.
I would recommend this book to anyone, not just Titanic buffs. Yvonne Hume has really done her homework and the family insight really shows through, it is so nice to see other photos of John and some of his family.
The foreword from Millvina Dean was such a nice touch.
All in all it is a must have book, one that I shall certainly read many more times.
