This is one of a fleet of books launched to commemorate the centennial of the TITANIC disaster. While covering much familiar ground describing the opulence of first class, the diversity of third class, the scandalous lack of lifeboats, and the nobility of so many passengers and crew, the author offers some illuminating stories and statistics about how the ship’s people lived and how they died. Narrator Robin Sachs’s deep and well-measured tones, posh accent, and careful pronunciation enhance the account significantly. Sachs holds one’s attention even when one is listening to lengthy lists of second-class passengers. Sachs's very English accent complements the author’s Anglo-centric worldview. The iceberg begins and ends the story. F.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
