The second part of Gordon Korman's Titanic book (yes, this is really one book broken into three parts) is better than the first one but still not where it should be, based on some of his other work. The characters are still tired and trite and their character arcs have added nothing fresh, instead veering even further into cliche. The situations are still hackneyed and familiar to anyone who has seen a disaster film, or read or watched fiction about the era/setting. This part ends just after striking the iceberg but since it has been predictable thus far I doubt I'll pick up part three right away, if at all.

I wish peole would stop writing stuff like ggfrtyocfsjk and rwsxdgycfukw. BTW (by the way) I am about halfway through with the book and it is amozing (um-aw-zing) and amozing is better than amazing.

I read the first book which was pretty boring, but the supspence is great which made me buy the second. The second book was full of great details and will make you read the book till the end!

Jake¿s Review: Mom: Jake seriously I think you should read this, its really kind of exciting.Jake: Mom, you promised.Mom: I know but you know what I think you should try. Tell ya what give it 5 chapters and if you don¿t like it I will go buy you the next beast quest book.Jake: Mom are you bribing me?Mom: Yup totally. See how all this reading has made you so smart. 2 Days LaterJake: It¿s pretty scary and a little creepy but you are right, I wanted to keep reading it. There was tons of action and I really liked how smart the kids were and how dumb the adults were. Didn¿t like reading it at night though since the Jack the Ripper guy was kinda creepy. Want to find out more about Jack the Ripper and the Titanic disaster, can we look up some stuff on the Internet? So since I finished reading it will you still buy me the Beast Quest.Mom: Ok, so since you told me I was right, I will definitely buy you a new book. Now go tell your father that mom was rightJake¿s Rating:8.5/10 (just a little too scary and sad for my tastes)Mom¿s Review: This really was a fantastic read for the middle school reader. Lots of thrills and chills and smart kids solving things without bumbling adults getting in the way. History and moral questions thrown in such a subtle way kids won¿t know they are learning things. This is such a treat with middle school fiction because you want to instill in kids the love of reading but at the same time teach them things and make them think. Korman really has a talent here and I can see why he sells tons of books. Ok guys this involves the Titanic so pretty much I am prejudice towards liking it. I promised Jake I wasn¿t going to make him read this, but I think he will really enjoy it. Don¿t want to give away too much but this story involves some interesting theories on the identity of Jack the Ripper and also how the disaster could have been prevented. Lighttoller really comes across as a jerk which differs from some of my reading. Love it, love it. Can¿t wait to read the final part of the story.Mom¿s Rating: 10/10We received this from Scholastic in Exchange for an honest review

A stowaway, two murderers confined in the ship's brig, (plus Jack the Ripper, of the old Whitecastle murders) has been identified also aboard the Titanic, prowling for victims... Book #2 of Korman's Titanic series introduces you to adventure aboard the greatest ship of all time. Books like this should really interest young readers in historical events. I enjoy reading about the Titanic whenever I can, but this series really gives me some more insight. I think because it shows 4 teenagers' individual lives, and a little bit about all the classes of people who sailed on the magnificent ship. (The only thing I didn't approve of? Julie's father's problem with drinking & gambling.)
