    tiatanic book

    this was an awsome story but i would reccomend it for a girls book as of stuff which happens at the end is a bit more of a girls thing only book. i think its even more astonishing cos its true and people who lived to tell the tale werent likely.

    As I have said before, I am crazy about the Titanic. This was the first book about the Titanic I had read and it inspired me to write loads about the subject.

    It was just amazing. An absolutely delightful read. It’s my favourite book by far and I’ve read it three times already. I’ve got three friends to read it ans they all love it too. It really gives you a detailed passenger’s experience of the Titanic and it’s so emotional! It was just the best book ever written! It’s a crime to overlook it!!And I love the way she comes from London and has come from a poor background and suddenly finds herself on the finest ocean-liner in the world. I also enjoyed reading about her friendship with Robert. Please read it! You won’t regret it! I guarantee!!!!!

    I thought this book was sad but was good at the same time. I like the way i could picture were it was because it had that much description.I loved the way i thought i was behind the scene looking at the story being told.

    This book was really well written, and taught me a lot about History, and the Titanic. I thought the Narrator was quite weak though, but the overall plot was interesting and brilliant, too. It was one of my favourite of the series, and since then, I have been researching into the Titanic era. Good book!
