Although I wasn't fond of Pellegrino using figures from the Greek Mythology to describe what happened with Titanic, I still loved the way he narrated on the Titanic.
He has described the tour to the ship in lovely way describing how Robert Ballard have been paralysed by the effect the ship had on him. After all - that was the first time they have ever dived to see the ship and every detail of the dive have been narrated - the minute they founded one of the boilers, the steering Wheel...
Pellegrino IS a science man while Ballard is not, and I could feel it in the way he tried to make sense of how the experience have reshaped him. Seems the only one unaffected by Titanic was the one who navigated Jason Jr...He has been more occupied trying to find the treasure inside a safe they founded on the ship, rather than not trying to open it as probably what Ballard had in mind.
The book is a great prologue to other books by this authr which I know I am going to check. But it was fascinated Reading which also gave me a glimpse into the 80's(my childhood years) Undersea filming Technologies. Thanks to Pellegrino, this trip to the great ship was possible as he was the keyman in the mission of finding the ship. This is a must read book!
