Lord's classic bestseller, and the definitive account of the unsinkable ship's fateful last hours At first, no one but the lookout recognized the sound. Passengers described it as the impact of a heavy wave, a scraping noise, or the tearing of a long calico strip. In fact, it was the sound of the world's most famous ocean liner striking an iceberg, and it served as the death knell for 1,500 souls. In the next two hours and forty minutes, the maiden voyage of the Titanic became one of history's worst maritime accidents. As the ship's deck slipped closer to the icy waterline, women pleaded with their husbands to join them on lifeboats. Men changed into their evening clothes to meet death with dignity. And in steerage, hundreds fought bitterly against certain death. At 2:15 a.m. the ship's band played "Autumn." Five minutes later, the Titanic was gone.… (més)

    waltzmn: Books about the Titanic are a dime a dozen; I have ten or so. Few are more significant that A Night to Remember. But it is a thin book, and there are more details elsewhere. Of those other books, Stephanie Barczewski's is among the best -- new enough to use the information from the rediscovered wreck, well-researched, and full.… (més)

#1 New York Times Bestseller: The definitive book on the sinking of the Titanic, based on interviews with survivors, by the author of The Miracle of Dunkirk.

At first, no one but the lookout recognized the sound. Passengers described it as the impact of a heavy wave, a scraping noise, or the tearing of a long calico strip. In fact, it was the sound of the world's most famous ocean liner striking an iceberg, and it served as the death knell for 1,500 souls.
In the next two hours and forty minutes, the maiden voyage of the Titanic became one of history's worst maritime accidents. As the ship's deck slipped closer to the icy waterline, women pleaded with their husbands to join them on lifeboats. Men changed into their evening clothes to meet death with dignity. And in steerage, hundreds fought bitterly against certain death. At 2:15 a.m. the ship's band played "Autumn." Five minutes later, the Titanic was gone.

An interesting account of the night the Titanic sank. Lord is no Simon Winchester, but it's still a fairly engaging historical narrative. ( )

This book typically garners rave reviews, especially from Titanic armchair historians (much like myself), so I was a bit disappointed that there isn't more to it. Instead of just a list of passenger names at the end, I would have liked a lengthier epilogue of more of the survivors that Lord interviewed. (It felt like he casually mentioned a few of them, but didn't give much in the way of details.) It's still an excellent book, especially for someone who only knows the bare minimum about the sinking of the Titanic - I personally just feel like I need to read longer, more-detailed texts about it in the future.

It was the height of opulence. An era when First Class traveled in style and servants catered to their every whim. Society had never been more confident of its advancements, and the Titanic was a testament to this. At eleven stories high and four city blocks long, she featured the best there was to offer. Her maiden voyage began on April 11, 1912. Just three days later, other ships began reporting sightings of ice. Many would heed those warnings, but so confident was Captain Smith in the Titanic's reputation for being unsinkable, that he ordered the ship to forge ahead at top speed straight into an ice field. Shortly before midnight, they struck an iceberg. What happened in the next few hours would forever change history.

The Bottom Line: At the time this book was published, it had been nearly 40 years since the Titanic had sunk. As the first major written work on the topic at the time, Lord had the rare opportunity to interview over 60 survivors and piece together the final hours of the Titanic. Back in the day, Lord's book climbed the bestseller list and remains the go-to resource on the disaster even today. It is very well researched and detailed. Highly recommended for history buffs and those interested in shipwrecks. Even today the fascination with the Titanic continues, and this book would appeal to anyone wanting to learn more.

I learned about this book because it's mentioned in the first book of the House of Night series by PC Cast, Marked. She does that a lot in the House of Night series -- mentions other books and I really want to read all the books she mentions! I'm reading the House of Night series and hope to now read the books that she mentions in that series. This was the first and I'm glad I did.

Years ago, 1998 and around that time, I learned about the Titanic sinking and read all I could find on the topic but do not remember reading or knowing about this book -- maybe I thought it was fiction and I wasn't interested in reading a fictional telling of the sinking and was only interested in the facts. Either way, I really enjoyed sort of going back to that time, in my mind, and learning more about the sinking.

At the end of this reading, I looked to see when it was written and was really pleased to see it was written in 1955, which is so much closer to the actual sinking than 1985, when the Titanic was located at the bottom of the sea and the interest in it's sinking was sort of restarted.
