More About the Author

Like many others, I have always been drawn to the story of the Titanic. It is like a fairy tale, a love story, a disaster and a tragedy all rolled into one, with stories of heroics, cowardice, desperation and seperation. Disaster stories are often retold through the generations however, the Titanic story is something else. A hundred years has passed since that fateful night where she sunk, alone in the Atlantic Ocean and the story is as alive as ever. Stories have been romanticised over the years, I however, wanted to know the truth, the facts of what caused this beautiful ship to sink on her maiden voyage. What follows is what I have found out. My particular interest lies in the errors of judgement of men that make this 'natural' disaster less than natural.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As someone with a long interest in the history of Titanic, my interest was reinvigorated with the centennial this year. Out of the many books available on Amazon, I chose two, including this one. I could not have been more disappointed in this choice. This book reads like a high school essay assignment, in double-spaced large font, complete with numerous spelling and punctuation errors. It is repetitive in its context, and reads in many places like an opinion piece, where I thought I was purchasing an objective non-fiction synopsis of the disaster.

I am the type of person who is positive to a fault, but it was impossible not to be critical of this poorly written book. If there were a way to get my money back, I would pursue it - I was utterly disappointed by this read.
