Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Fascination with the sinking of the Titanic still runs high, as indeed it has since 1912, so this firsthand account is a good addition to any collection. It is sometimes excruciatingly detailed, but this very elegantly written narrative by a man who actually did sink with the ship (he was later hauled into a lifeboat) is often riveting. The reading by Frederick Davidson is almost annoyingly matter-of-fact and even singsong, recounting horrific sights and sounds in an offhand manner that does not really suit the material, but this can be overcome by the listener's imagination, well-fueled by Gracie's descriptions. The book ends quite abruptly; Gracie died the following December from the effects of his ordeal and did not get a chance to write his planned summary. Titanic buffs will love this on-the-spot reporting; others will also find much to enjoy and ponder. Recommended for all general collections.--Harriet Edwards, East Meadow P.L., NY
LA Times
"...a definitive account..."
Philadelphia Enquirer
"Sometimes amazingly priggish, at others unwittingly funny, the colonel was also possessed of a fierce tenacity, a sturdy kind of dignity and a feeling of controlled outrage at what he thougt was gross negligence."

    The most adventures book ever!

    This book really touched me and made me think of what actually happened on 'The Day of The Titanic Sank.' I wouldn't know what to do, like if I was going to er see my family again or see another day.

    Great selection for an online bookstore. Both the site online and the store are places that I could spend a lot of time and money (if I had it).

    Awesome!

    The titanic is so cool! I feel so bad for those who didn't survive. The titanic is an inspiring story. I also totally recommend the movie with leonardo de caprio or whatever his name is and anyway i am a total die-hard fan of his. Awesome book.

    Rms not ss titanic

    I haven't read this book, but the title alone lost me. If the writers can't even get the name of the ship right in the title how can they be expected to get any other facts correct? The Titanic was not the SS Titanic, she was the RMS Titanic. I could probably go throgh this book and point out each error there is sure to be as a devoted Titanic history buff.

    I thought it would be different...

    I couldn't finish this book. I absolutely LOVE non-fiction books and reading about real life events, but this book was awful! It is very rare for me to not finish something I started, but after 100 pages of this, I couldn't do it. It was very repetitive and boring.
