Description-

  • One hundred years ago, the mightiest "unsinkable" ship began her maiden voyage to cross the Atlantic. An engineering feat eleven stories high, the Titanic contained a list of passengers collectively worth $250 million when she left port on April 10, 1912, but she would never reach her destination. The Titanic collided with an iceberg on the night of April 14, and 1,500 people died in the freezing waters as the ship met her watery grave. Spectacular in many ways, it's a story that has spurred legends and still sends shivers down the spine a century later. This minute-by-minute account of the sinking is based on over twenty years of research, and offers amazing detail of that fateful night. Read by Martin Jarvis, it's a riveting account of one of the world's biggest maritime disasters and the behavior of the passengers and crew. Some sacrificed their lives, while others fought like animals for their own survival. Wives beseeched husbands to join them in lifeboats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; and hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped below decks, sought help in vain. From the initial distress flares to the struggles of those left adrift for hours in freezing waters, this audiobook brings that moonlit night in 1912 to life for a new generation of listeners.

About the Author-

  • Walter Lord (1917-2002), American author of numerous nonfiction books, was a graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law School, served in the OSS during World War II, and became an editor and advertising copywriter. He is the author of Day of Infamy, a #1 New York Times bestseller. He also wrote A Night to Remember, about the sinking of the Titanic, and served as consultant in the making of the movie Titanic.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine This classic study of the unsinkable TITANIC still packs an emotional wallop. Of course, we know what's going to happen, but the pleasure here is in the telling and the anticipation created by the author's minute-by-minute account of the doomed ship. What could make this story even better? How about a terrific narrator who has a classically trained English voice that not only lends elan to the book but also heightens the tension and adds expert pacing? Check off all of those boxes, as Martin Jarvis fits the bill with talent to spare. Jarvis alternates his reading to match the text, ranging from a learned professor informing us of a historical event to a breathlessly excited observer drawing us into the story. It's a must-read.

  • AudioFile Magazine The fabulous remake of the film Titanic did more than launch Leonardo DiCaprio's movie career. An amazing number of audiobooks have been released on this topic, representing a wide range of perspectives. Martin Jarvis's presentation of Lord's 1955 classic book, A Night to Remember, is fascinating in both its abridged and unabridged formats. The unabridged title concludes with a list of facts, quite useful since rumor and speculation still abound. Happily, those who aren't moviegoers may learn more about the history of the Titanic by listening to this audio presentation. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
