Great Read for All Ages...Titanic: Voices from the Disaster

Titanic: Voices From the Disaster - Deborah Hopkinson

I just finished Titanic: Voices from the Disaster and found it very interesting and informative even though I have read other accounts of the event, including A Night to Remember. I even went to the Broadway musical version of the story which was pretty cool. The best thing about this book is, I think, the fact that it interweaves quotations from survivors along with the basic facts. The many illustrations, particularly the photographs of the ship and passengers, add to the book's appeal. I think it's an example of a book that may be classified as YA but is really of interest to readers of all ages.
