    Terrible!

    I was all prepared to enjoy this book but the editing is so poor I am having trouble getting through the first 20 pages. And several of the pages are repeated! I know it was free but I still expected better.

    I've read many non-fiction books about the Titanic. But this is

    I've read many non-fiction books about the Titanic. But this is the first survivor story that I've actually read. It is perfect! Lawrence Beesley's telling of the Titanic's sinking is quite in depth, as he is quite acquainted with the knowledge he shared in his book, but at the same time, it is set forth in an easily understood fashion.

    He tells of the people he interacted with on board --- the people he met again, rescued on the Carpathia -- and the people that he did not meet again.

    I immensely enjoyed learning facts upon the subjects of temperatures, icebergs, mileage, lifeboats, and ship communication at sea. What an intelligent man Beesley must have been, to have know so many angles to look at each topic from.

    Every Titanic buff should read his tale!

    Facts from a survivor himself

    Lawrence Bessley was a very observant man. He remembers everything. But it can get a bit boring in places. For the most part though it is pretty interesting.
