Wonderfully Spellbinding

I confess to a mild obsession regarding the disaster but in the case of this audiobook and the narrator, it did not matter. I simply could not stop listening.

Good overall book

I've always been interested in the Titanic and I try to read anything I can in it. This was the 1st book I've read where it was just straight information in a story, with no extra plot. I also really enjoyed the narrative of it.

Compelling story...

Very interesting narrative from a Titanic surviver. A must read. Many of its themes are still relevant today.

Bad narrator

The narrator ruins a great book. A shame as this book is a classic by Laurence Beesley Titanic survivor.
