Reviews

The Titanic Pocketbook: A Passenger's Guide is a slim little book chock full of information about the great ship. Written as though it were in fact an informational book for someone considering sailing on board the Titanic, it begins with the background of the White Star Line, giving details of how the ship came into being. It then goes into much technical information about the actual construction materials; from there we are treated to the particulars of the furnishings and decks, and are even given glimpses of typical menus and sleeping accommodations. This book boasts many great pictures from the period and includes diagrams that clarify positions and opportunities. While it is indeed filled with a wealth of information that any Titanic enthusiast would enjoy, it is often dryly written with minutiae such as how the elevators worked within their frames. Still, it is an interesting slant on the ship and one this buff enjoyed. * Historical Novel Society *
