Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Gordon Korman's Titanic series:

"Though best known and loved for his humorous books, Korman has proven here, as he has with the other adventure series he's penned, that he is far from a one-trick pony." — Quill & Quire

"[Korman] knows how to spin a lively and engaging tale. Hanging it on an already fascinating, albeit tragic, slice of history means it wins on all levels: a thrilling account of a heart-stopping disaster, and a set of fictional characters seamlessly intertwined with real life." — The Montreal Gazette

"Korman manages to tell the story of the Titanic smoothly while also introducing other elements of the early twentieth century...Altogether an enjoyable read that makes this tragic story come alive with personal narratives." — Resource Links

"Highly Recommended" — Canadian Review of Materials

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this Titanic S.O.S. series by Gordon Korman. My 7-year-old loves anything having to do with transportation and has knowledge of the Titanic from my husband's many adult books on the subject. He checked out these books from the library and asked me to read them to him. I was immediately drawn in, so much so that I could not wait for him and finished them on my own. The cast of characters is diverse and interesting. The author does a fantastic job of weaving the characters' stories together as they experience a common event from different viewpoints. The author uses factual information and characters as a basis for the fictional story. There is plenty of adventure, excitement, and surprises. The author sees the story through to explain how each of the main characters faired after the rescue, so the reader is not left wondering how things may have turned out. I highly recommend these three books!!

Format: Paperback
This final installment in Korman's Titanic trilogy is packed with action as it details the sinking. I still think that at this reading level these three short books could have been made into one, but the shorter length, nonstop drama, and attractive covers are well-suited to reluctant readers.

I enjoyed the way Korman included details from eyewitnesses into his account of the sinking. He had some of his fictional characters have experiences that come from actual survivors statements. The confusion, doubts, and eventual panic as the ship sunk is well written, though I'm afraid young readers may be confused by the nautical lingo that is used but never defined.

Each character from the trilogy is brought to a conclusion by the end of the book including what happened later to those who survive the sinking.

Author Gordon Korman offers just the right blend of humor, intrigue, mystery, and suspense in his adventure trilogies. The most important author of young adult fiction writing today.

As soon as I started reading, I was hooked. I'm an action kinda guy, so I liked this book the best (personally). Worth every penny.
