The Band That Played On
I read this book at one go and I must say that the research work done in writing it was phenomenal. Not only are the musicians dealt with in depth, about their past and achievements but also the theories about the sinking of the Titanic are discussed and various angles explored. In addition to the writing, there are numerous photos and sketches to hold one's attention.
This is a great book for all ages and inspires us with the hope that we can all be heroes.

There are times I felt like the story was meandering too much off course. But all those information that seemed excessive at first proved to be useful in better understanding the personality of each of the members of the band who hoped to inspire calm and courage in the passenger's lives even at the expense of their own. It also showed how these men's death has affected their families as well as the whole world's view of many things, including its own core values. A fascinating, informative read, that could use a little nitpicky editing, but has truly told the gist of the inspiring tale of these men who died fulfilling every musician's dream of inspiring the world with their music.

This book has some interesting tidbits here and there but most of it read like a textbook. It was dry and I gave it up about half way through it. Normally really enjoy Titantic trivia but this didn't hold my interest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
