One of the first books I just stopped reading because it wasn't good.
Sandra Peel-Colwell
A first person description of the Titanic tragedy, in such intimate detail, makes fascinating reading.
A Reader
It was really interesting reading an account of someone who had actually been on the Titanic.

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.

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.

One of the most informative books on Titanic I have ever read. Absorbing reading for those interested in the saga of the Titanic.

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

I found parts of the book to be quite interesting....the author's description of the ship, the collision with the iceberg, the evacuation of the boat....the book bogged down, though, with many, many pages of transcription of Senate and British inquiries into the tragedy. Overall, it is a very good retelling of the Titanic disaster by one of the few men to survive it

Gracie was one tough man to survive the sinking and gives an excellent account of events. If you want to know more detail about that event this account is very good. There is a little too much repetition about each boat.

Mr. Gracie has brought us on board the Titanic and given us a glimpse into the human heart - with all its frailties and its power to forgive.
