History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

A nagging question about the sinking of the TITANIC is why the ship went down so fast. The authors, experienced wreck divers, explore the theories and visit the wreck, and its sunken sister ship, to find answers. The book also includes extensive technical history of the ship and the original investigation of the sinking. Henry Leyva does a workmanlike job with the narration. His clear voice is easy to listen to, a quality that is especially important in the technical passages. He occasionally adopts an accent for speakers, but only ones he can do well, so the technique doesn't seem forced. Leyva also captures the excitement and awe of wreck-diving.
