Riipaiseva teos siitä, millaista selviytyjien elämä oli Titanicin onnettomuuden jälkeen. Vaikka eri luokkien menehtymisprosentit puhuvat puolestaan, ottaa Shadow of the Titanic myös kantaa siihen mitkä syyt saattoivat johtaa merkittäviin eroihin luokkien välisten prosenttien välillä. Kaiken kaikkiaan erittäin mielenkiintoinen ja kattava kuvaus katastrofin seurauksista eri luokkien ja sukupuolien välillä. ( )

Book Description
Release date: March 26, 2013
We think we know the story of the Titanic—the once majestic and supposedly unsinkable ship that struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America—but very little has been written about the vessel’s 705 survivors. How did the events of that horrific night in the icy waters of the North Atlantic affect the lives of those who lived to tell the tale?

Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished letters, memoirs, diaries, and interviews with their family members, award-winning journalist Andrew

Wilson brings to life the survivors’ colorful voices, from the famous, like heiress Madeleine Astor, to the lesser known second-and third-class passengers, such as the Navratil brothers, who were traveling under assumed names because they were being abducted by their father.

More than one hundred years after that fateful voyage, Shadow of the Titanic adds an important new dimension to this enduringly captivating story.

An incredible collection of survivor stories that have been blended with biographical research into an addictive and highly readable tale of what happened to those who survived the sinking of the Titanic. Andrew Wilson has taken the stories of the survivors that we know and thoroughly details inconsistencies, realities, and the motivations/reasons of the survivors. Some of these stories are beyond tragic while others provide hope in the determination to survive and live life for those who had perished so tragically that April night in 1912. This is a book that will fill in the blank left in Titanic history of what happened to the survivors after they stepped off the Carpathia and onto the pier in New York City. It will captivate all readers with its interwoven stories. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating, but I did get the impression that a couple of chapters were padded out. Nevertheless it's a great book. ( )
