Very interesting read about the Titanic!
The 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is coming up this Spring. Author Tim Maltin took this time to debunk some of the common myths about the Titanic. Some he even validated. But the movie is referenced several times in the book. Like when Molly Brown ordered the lifeboats back, no she did not do that. And most of the lives lost were not lost due to drowning, but hypothermia. An interesting fact that I had not heard before for that there were two kidnapped kids on board of the Titanic. It was a custodial kidnapping and their father perished, an interesting little tidbit.
Overall this is the type of book that diehard fans of Jack and Rose will enjoy. I admit that it made me want to pull out the movie and watch it again. With the Anniversary coming up there will be a lot of talk about that fateful April night, 101 Things You Thought You Knew about the Titanic will help get you started.
