Andrew Wilson – Shadow of the Titanic


Although we think we know the story of the Titanic – the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America in April 1912 – little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy.

How did the loss of the ship shape the lives of the people who survived? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night? Shadow of the Titanic will shed new light on this unforgettable event by showing how the disaster continued to shape the lives of those passengers who escaped the sinking ship.

For those who are intrigued by the Titanic tragedy, the author looks at the lives of the survivors, rich and poor, and details the facts of their lives after the sinking. Wilson was careful not to infer broadly that everything was attributable to the sinking, but like survivors of 9/11, people’s lives were changed.

A quick, lively listen, though in future, British narrators should ask Americans how to pronounce our city and state names. A minor glitch, but a great audiobook!
