One of the first books I just stopped reading because it wasn't good.
Sandra Peel-Colwell
It was really interesting reading an account of someone who had actually been on the Titanic.

This is a haunting tale of Gracie's survival the night the Titanic sunk. It is quite a read, however it is certainly written in the 'tongue' of the early 20th century. It is interesting to hear the point of view of someone who went through so much the night the Titanic sunk and to see what was happening around him. It does have its flaws though, and while it must be remembered that was the way of the times it is still a bit much to stomach at times. Gracie was a first class passenger therefore he spoke almost exclusively of those in first class. When he spoke of anyone from steerage it was very clear he thought of them almost as another species. He was quite degrading of them, the way they dressed and the way they spoke. Of course we knew many first class passengers on that boat, or on any boat would feel the third class passengers were not worth their time and would feel as though they were much better than anyone in the classes below them, it was still a little infuriating to read that arrogance. Nevertheless, it's a good book to read to get a truthful look at that night.

After all the articles, books and movies concerning this tragedy, this book from the past offers little new. However, as the account of someone who was there,it makes interesting reading and helps bring some of the tragedy into better focus to our modern eyes. The author states simply what he saw, heard, experienced, and knew and does not editorialize. It includes some material from the American and British inquiries afterward. It's too late now, of course, but it would have been a good book to read first before all the other material available now.

As I have read several books on the Titanic, this one is by far the most exciting, and informative out of a half dozen or so books on this subject that I've ever read ! I have archived this book forever to re-read as I am a true Titanic fan! Remember, Colonel Gracie survived this great disaster only to live long enough (eight months) to put the details of the sinking into a very informative, detailed account of what generally happened on that tragic night of April 14th, 1912. I recommend this read to all history buffs, as it's one of the most fatal happenings of the vast oceans!

Written by someone who truly experienced that night. One of the best stories I've read on the Titanic. I highly recommend.

Mr Gracie writes with truth from being on the Titanic that horrible night. He recalled everything he saw in detail and gave so much information on private lives of his fellow 1st class passengers For instance who they were, where they were from and how they made thier money. I could not put this book down

A wonderful narrative by a survivor. Notably, I don't think he mentioned a band playing to the end, but he mentions almost everything else like that.

I enjoyed this book.you read so many stories,but to read the account from an actual person that experienced it was so much better.I believe his account of the tragedy was as close to what really happened as any I've read. Mr Grecie has the rare ability to stand back and watch and be aware of happenings with out histrionics and tell exactly what happened from the view point of his eyes.
What I found especially sad was the fact that Mr.Gracie died only a couple of years after the tragedy,because of the stress Of the event.Unlike some of the others he was in that freezing water for a time.
I've read several books on the Titantic,and this was one of the best.
