Publisher's Summary

Although we think we know the story of the Titanic - the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America in April 1912 - little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy.

How did the loss of the ship shape the lives of the people who survived? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night? Shadow of the Titanic will shed new light on this unforgettable event by showing how the disaster continued to shape the lives of those passengers who escaped the sinking ship.

A Bit of Revelation on a Horrendous Event

This is a somewhat interesting volume, good for casual listening while one is occupied with something else. Not to imply the narrator has an irritating or sleep-inducing tone, but in combination with the general tone of the content, I found the narrator's style perfect as a little voice to lull me to sleep much like a comforting radio program. Often it seemed that this was the volume that was used to shape James Cameron's 1997 movie. All in all there is not much revealed in comparison to the movie - a small handful of portraits of Titanic victims that are portrayed with some interesting detail. In fact for me, this book gave me great appreciation for Cameron's masterful compilation of detail in his writing of the movie script. If this was your first telling of the story of the Titanic, you would probably be moved with greater emotion for what these passengers and survivors suffered. But I'm guessing that many of us have almost put this frequently told story into a fictional category. Actors in this tale are often portrayed as sullen tragic victims or spoiled rich who connive for their means of survival. I wasn't able to form any emotional connection to these unfortunate souls. There is something of great interest in the first chapter, in the author's full descriptions - but I wouldn't want to tell and spoil it for you if you did choose to listen to this one. I'd be interested to know what you think.
Frankly, this is one of those books I put aside. I haven't listened to the last 2 chapters yet and don't know that I will. Such a sad and tragic story, but generally speaking, we all know how it ends.
