Logan Marshall's book "The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters" gives readers a first-hand account of the greatest sea disaster of all time straight from the survivors of the ill-fated sunken ship. Unlike many of the books about the Titanic that was written recently, Logan Marshall was fortunate that he was able to interview the survivors of the Titanic and access to all the important documents about the ship, including the diagrams, maps and actual photographs related to the disaster. With this, he was able to write the best book that has a complete and accurate account of the Titanic and its tragic fate. The Titanic as most people know was the biggest ocean liner during her time and was hailed as “unsinkable” by the company which made it. Officially known as the RMS Titanic, this mammoth ship can carry more than 2,000 passengers and owned by British shipping company White Star Line. The ship has a double-bottomed hull and watertight compartments which make her “unsinkable” according to her owners. But as we all know, this claim was proven to be wrong when she sank in the North Atlantic during her maiden voyage. Logan Marshall did well to make use of all the resources that were at his disposal. Not only was he able to make detailed descriptions of the disaster, he was also able to narrate them well from a human point of view without compromising any truth about the biggest sea tragedy of all time. This book is a must read for anybody who's deeply interested in the Titanic and its unfortunate end. The movie “Titanic” is now considered as a timeless classic and so is this book. If you're a fan of the movie which features Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet, you'll also like reading this book.
I appreciate her attempts, but this book should be read with less liveliness and fluctuation of tone. It's distracting to the listener.
what an irritating voice and tone of the reader. i was tempted to shutdown but unfortuntely the book interested me.
The content of the book is interesting, however, the woman reading is terrible. The voices that she puts on, when reading personal accounts, makes a mockery of the tragedy. She completely misses the mood of this book.
The reader makes the story sound silly as she mimics the parts. My children tuned it out when she got to that part...too bad because the book is great.
Review good reading
I don't mind enthusiasm, but this reader although clear, and easy to understand reads this book like a two year old's bedtime story. I don't find her style appropriate for a book about a great tragedy.. especially when taking form of these people's real accounts. This lady should stick to fantasy and children's books.
