Titanic: Voices From the Disaster by Deborah Hopkinson

On the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, this book presents the story again containing quotes and descriptions from survivors of the disaster.  The author starts with the building of the great ship and goes through its maiden voyage, including what happened to several of the survivors afterwards.  It is very nicely done and gives the read many chills with the descriptions of events on board that night without resorting to overly dramatic statements.  I have read a great deal about the Titanic and still found many new things to learn in this title!  Highly recommended for those who are interested in this disaster.
