Very good and interesting

This book is very interesting: it’s the voices of those who were on the Titanic. It’s sad, eerie, and very interesting. This book is worth every single penny. In fact I would have gladly paid more for it.

Good information and narrative

The book by itself is very good, has the basics covered and the information you can extract is very good. The narrator does a good job, but I wish they could have added background noises. I enjoyed the book, I would recommend for any lover of titanic.

Phenomenal

The way the book is organized was phenomenal! Hearing the survivors POV, with what happened after Titanic sank, was heart wrenching! We’ve always been told of the sinking, but not when they are in the water or lifeboats! The narrator was amazing! It was interesting to hear how each survivor handled it differently with the second chance at life they were given! It was disappointing to read online that Jack Thayer, killed himself later in life after the loss of one of 6 kids and his mother. I’d have thought he’d have been truly grateful for life after the tragedy of Titanic!
The different voices with the accents in this audiobook made it truly come alive! Will be listening to it again!
