Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Quinn is a member of the Titanic Historical Society and writes and paints for its publication, the Titanic Commutator. Following Robert Ballard's discovery of the wreck in 1985 (see his Discovery of the Titanic, LJ 1/88), there have been numerous books retelling the epic story of the "unsinkable ship" on its maiden voyage with an insufficient number of lifeboats for passengers and crew. Quinn uses structural details gleaned from the accounts of Ballard and many survivors to reconstruct a vivid description of the final 20 minutes of the vessel's life. He has an excellent knowledge of the layout of the ship and has contributed several paintings showing the progress of the sinking. Of course, Quinn had to surmise various scenarios, including his dramatic descriptions of the rising water, the sounds of water flooding the various public rooms, and even which escape routes were likely taken by the third-class passengers. A beautiful addition to the literature of the Titanic and a good purchase for public libraries.John Kenny, San Francisco P.L.
