Review: Titanic, First Accounts

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

I really loved this book. It's sad that in the back of the book it shows the name of some of the first and second class passengers of that time who were not survivors. It is only a partial list. The information and history in this book is incredible. Definitely worth reading. Read full review
