5.0 out of 5 stars A FASCINATING ACCOUNT OF THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC, 23 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Lifeboat No. 8: An Untold Tale of Love, Loss, and Surviving the Titanic (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This is an excellent little book about the sinking of the Titanic.

It is the story of the passengers of lifeboat no. 8, which was one of the first lifeboats that left the ship and carried mostly first class passengers. The book, written in real time, follows the stories of passengers like the dynamic Countess of Rothes, her romantic maid Roberta Maioni, wireless operator Jack Phillips, Mr. and Mrs. Allison and their maid Sarah Daniels, young newlyweds Maria and Victor Peñasco y Castellana, and Mr. and Mrs. Isidor Straus from 11:40 on the night of April 14 1912, the minute the Titanic struck the iceberg, to the fatal sinking and the rescue. The author also provides information about the fate of the survivors and the way that night affected and haunted the rest of their lives. Although this book is an accurate account of that fateful night, based on survivors' letters, diaries, and testimonies, it is beautifully written like a novel, filled with suspense, love, heroism and loss. The Titanic story is told countless times, but this adds something new and is fascinating to read, especially considering that reading it, the reader doesn't know what happens to every person mentioned in this story, as not all survive at the end.

The book is very short, about 60 pages long and is meant to be read in a single sitting.
