    "A tight and exciting little book"

    Almost everyone on the planet knows the Titanic story, yet I found this retelling of the tale of this ill-fated vessel fantastic. I am a fan of the History in an Hour format and find it works very well with this story. The account of the moments leading up to the fatal encounter of ship and iceberg is especially spine-tingling and impressive. Part of the credit of course has to go to Mr. Jonathan Keeble, the narrator.

    Story
    "Another excellent title in this series"

    This will be about the 5th 'History in an Hour' title that I've listened to and they have all been excellent. Of them all though I must say that this title is by far the best. I suppose that, because being a specific story as opposed to a collection of events, dates and names, this was always going to be a more accessible title, but that aside I have found myself completely engrossed in this story.

    Without resorting to opinion or popular myth this book really does set out the known facts clearly and leads the listener through the background of the fated ship and the various events that contributed to the worst maritime disaster in the UKs history.

    No small credit should go to the narrator Jonathan Keeble who is both informative and engaging, delivering the text clearly and informatively. I have found his style of delivery a big part of my enjoyment of these books and will certainly keep an eye out for other titles he has read.

    I would recommend this series very highly
