Only one secret that I could find

Reviewed: 03-09-10

I think the audiobook was good, and the reader did a great job, but I was let down by the actual book content. Forget secrets, I only heard one secret (though it may be worth it to you to find out what it is) and the rest of the book seemed to be a speculative and imagined journey (though based on some interesting hard facts) through the building, boarding, and sinking of the Titanic and the trials that followed. I guess this just wasn't what I expected. I can find plenty of books that try to paint a picture of the Titanic's last journey. I was hoping to find more substantive information about the discoveries made by the authors. But truth be told they could have written an article about their find and been done with it. They don't have much, so they had to add a lot more fluff so they could sell a book and make up for the costs accrued in their expensive wreck diving.
