4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and Suspenseful, November 1, 2010
This review is from: Titanic 2012: Curse of RMS Titanic (Alastair Ransom Series Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
Titanic 2012: Curse of RMS Titanic, is an unusual book. It fits into both historical fiction and futuristic fiction. Walker writes both aspects quite well. The book takes history for a spin. We all know what happened to the Titanic in the end, but do we truly know what was going on in the minds of those on-board? Of course not, because we can't know-and the premise that there was a curse of a sort takes us on an unusual journey.

This was actually my introduction to Alastair Ransom-and I liked him. In fact, I found myself liking the characters from the past more than the characters from 2012. This may be because of all the accurate history that was the backdrop for this story. Or it may be that the characters have been in Walker's head for a longer period of time and were more three dimensional. It could also be that I didn't understand some of the futuristic science as well.

At any rate, I read the book in about a day and a half. It was the kind of book that I didn't want to put down after I started. Even knowing Titanic's ultimate end, the book was suspenseful for me. And I found the ending for the book and particularly for the 2012 crew to be satisfying.
