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.

futility.

why was the titanic travelling at high speed & why did the captain did what the Californian did, stop engines & drop anchor untill day before proceeding on her way. as for the lifeboats, why did Ismay cancelled out the 40 Lifeboats for just 20 ?
