I've seen both the 1957 film Night to Remember and James Cameron's "Titanic", but the older film is much better and this is the book that film was based on. Reading the book, you can easily identify the characters in the film. The story is told as witnessed by people actually present, many of whom were still alive when this book and the film were made. The author does comment on discrepencies between various accounts and on the wild and inaccurate reporting of the time. He does not delve into the lunatic fringe conspiracy theories that sprang up years later when there were no more eyewitnesses to debunk them. If you want the definitive description of that night out in the Atlantic with detail not shown in the films, this is the best book to buy.

Format: Paperback
Titanic - the 'unsinkable' ocean liner sailed on her maiden voyage in April 1912 from Southampton. She would never reach her destination. Thoroughly researched and packed with first hand accounts from survivors, this book is considered to be the benchmark by which all other books on the subject are judged. First published in 1954 and used as the basis for the film of the same title starring Kenneth Moore, Walter Lord painstakingly researched evidence from both the UK and US investigations into the tragedy, and tracked down and interviewed scores of survivors to produce a book which is packed with detail. He engrosses the reader as the events unfold and the tale races towards its shocking end, carefully weighing up often conflicting accounts and arriving at considered judgements which give a unique insight into the sinking. Arguments over the exact events that night continue to this day - read A Night to Remember and decide for yourself.

You know the famous names associated with her, you know or heard of the myths and legends about her and her passengers, you even know her fate, now hear the haunting voices from the Titanic with a true classic. Whether the reader has a causal interest sparked by silver screen dramatizations, a morbid curiosity of history or is a long time armchair enthusiast of the story, facts and myths all surrounding the Titanic- A Night to Remember is an unforgettable classic that appeals to every type of reader. A Night to Remember is told in a riveting fashion that first captures the atmosphere of that cold April night and continues to build a detailed account of the ship and her passenger's fates between April 10 to 19 1912. Written in 1955, Walter Lord has left a stunning piece of meticulous fiction that melds magnetic storytelling with harrowing accounts from the survivors of history's most famous and recognized maritime disaster. Well known and little known facts are abound in this work and the reader is sure to learn something new with each flip of the page. Beautifully executed with haunting accounts and thought-provoking this novel even ends with the final pages paying a somber tribute with the listed names of the survivors and those who perished. An appropriate ending to a story of the Titanic's final days and her ultimate voyage into history. Highly Recommend.
