At the first few words of Anne Twomey's voice, a tone of prescience and suspense starts the story of a famous sinking only three years after the TITANIC's trip to the bottom. Her low tone and reserved style are perfect for a story of German torpedoes racing toward a helpless ocean liner filled with innocent passengers, munitions slated for use in the Great War, and an arrogant captain who ignores warnings of danger. Switching back and forth between the LUSITANIA's passengers' memories and the submarine captain's view through his periscope during the attack provides suspense and foreboding that command listeners' attention. Although abridged, this jewel has been flawlessly cut. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
