I bought this because I've been searching for a Nook edition with the original illustrations. This edition does not contain them, despite the "illustrated" in the description. Nor does it contain a proper table of contents. The tale is riveting, however. A very worthy read from a survivor of the tragedy. By all means, search for a proper version of this book. The "illustrated" version here contains generic photographs of the titanic, icebergs, and a photoshopped sunset anyone can find using google image search. You can find a better formatted version of this at Project Gutenburg, which unfortunately does not contain the original illustrations. I'll keep searching for a better formatted version with the original illustrations. If I find the illustrations online somewhere, I'll make my own epub file and share it here. Do not recommend this particular edition. However, I do recommend this author's account of the tragedy.
