Published for the first time over 50 years ago, author Walter Lord weaves a tale of the human element that played a major role during the sinking of the Titanic. Through interviews, personal records, and well-researched facts, a whole new perspective on the last few hours of the doomed liner has been presented in this book. The fateful night of the sinking of the Titanic had many aspects to it, where some people saved lives, while others fought tooth and claw to protect themselves. Presented as a by-the-minute recreation of the tragedy, this book is a thriller that leaves you with a sense of what the last few passengers on the ship would have experienced. From those who struggled to escape from the bottom of the ship to the hundreds of passengers floating on the frigid waters waiting for rescue, every angle of the tragedy has been covered lucidly and in stunning detail.
Part of the 100 plus Eyewitness Books series published by Dorling Kindersley (DK), the book covers the history and subsequent investigation, discovery, and exploration of the doomed ocean liner- the Titanic. Including survivor accounts, historic photographs, and details on the salvage operations that were undertaken, this guide can be used as a complete authority on the subject. Stories on some of the wealthy and famous passengers have also been covered, with detailed accounts of their actions during the sinking. The book also goes into great depth on the subject of the exploration operations that were undertaken in an effort to salvage the wreckage that was discovered several decades later.
From author Robert Ballard, the famed explorer who discovered the Titanic wreckage in 1985, and illustrator Ken Marschall who has worked on many books based on the Titanic in the past, comes this larger than life account about one of the most poignant moments in maritime history.
Based largely on the discovery and subsequent exploration that took place around the sunken ship, the book makes use of accurate details recorded by the author. Including detailed analysis of what really took place during the final hours of the doomed ship, written records have been provided to give the reader a clear idea.
Written in a lucid manner, the book further goes on to clear up many of the myths surrounding the sinking and wreckage of the ship. The book stands out for providing readers with the location of the final resting place of the Titanic.
Based on the series of events that led up to the sinking, the book goes on to record the experiences of those who survived. Through the eyes of the persons involved in the design, construction, and launch, the first half of the book relives the experiences of those working on the ship.
The remainder of the book deals with facts and myths attached to the voyage, and analyses the memoirs and essays of the survivors recounting the finer details of what took place on the night the Titanic sank. The two-part book keeps the reader on edge throughout as they are taken on a journey of tragedy, courage and sacrifice.
Marine historian Ken Rossignol presents the story of the Titanic from a unique perspective in this book- news reporting. Through the original reports, news clippings, and numerous interviews, it presents a clear picture of what really took place on the night the Titanic sank.

The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary, illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers176 pagesHave I mentioned before that I love Beverly Cleary? This one is just as good as any of her other books, but totally different, with a little mouse who meets a boy staying at his hotel and starts riding his toy motorcycle. This is the first of three book in the Ralph S. Mouse series.
Love that Dog by Sharon Creech128 pagesI LOVE this book and it was fun to revisit it with my girls last year and share some of my favorite poems with them. We read it in about three days, so it was a nice in-between book as a break from longer novels. (Full review here)
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry160 pagesThis historical fiction book about WWII was the first chapter book I read on my own and I still love it all these years later.
Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor144 pagesThis Newbery-winning book about Marty Preston who finds a beagle in the hills falls immediately in love with the dog he names Shiloh. It seems like a match made in heaven until he discovers that the dog belongs to Judd Travers, a local alcoholic who abuses the multiple dogs he owns. The idea of letting Shiloh go back to Judd is unthinkable, but. . . .can he keep a dog a secret forever?
I am always looking for books to read with my 13 yr old grandson (advanced reader). Short chapters are a big hit even for my own reading. I was please to see The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye. I used to read her books myself and did not know she had written for middle school readers.
I enjoyed this book very much, but my 13-year-old could not get into it. He has some kind of aversion to books written about the Jim Crow era. I really hope to take him to the Smithsonian African American museum this spring to open his eyes!
Great post, thank you!I am curious about the 400 page chapter books for middle graders who have grown OUT of their reluctance with the help of your AWESOME tips on raising readers! I so appreciate your content!
While I can normally be critical about books glamorizing affairs, I thought this book did it in a really smart way that made sense and showed that all relationships are different and complex. I can also be critical of books dealing with 9/11 (sometimes it feels wrongly used for the sake of drama to me), but I thought this one handled it well.
Never has a book ever reminded me more of the coastal grandmother aesthetic! The Love Season takes place in the course of one day on Nantucket, in which a middle-aged chef who made it on her own, Marguerite, goes about the day running island errands and preparing for a delectable homemade dinner with her recently engaged goddaughter, to whom she must reveal secrets about her past.
I'm not 100% sure about this. I don't recall there being a major connection. Sometimes Elin uses the same characters throughout several novels (like the police chief) but I'm not aware of any books being part of the Winter series other than the Winter series itself.
Thanks for your thoughtful comment! I DEFINITELY recommend Perfect Couple! I recommend it to so many people, and it seems you and I have similar tastes. Blue Bistro is also a really well-liked, unique book, as is Silver Girl.
I'm a reader of 100+ books per year, had a minor in English literature, and I've been on The Today Show's Read with Jenna Book Club, Oprah's Book Club, Reese's Book Club, and Buzzfeed, and my essay about The Rory Gilmore Book Club was published in the book But I'm a Gilmore!
