Raise the Titanic! - Clive Cussler

Raise the Titanic! by Clive Cussler
Book starts out in 1900's and it's the night of the sinking Titanic where a man aboard knows the ship hit the iceberg and will sink as he goes to where he's stored the element that was mined that will be needed for future war projects.
Story follows a lot of different groups: one who finds the horn-the horn that was played on the Titantic, Sicilian project, money paid to survivors from miners who died in the past, other private groups that are funded from the government, the President who pursuades others to do things they don't really want to do and a lot more in different countries.
There is so much action and adventure, never mind the mystery surrounding it all. Bit of romance and you have a well rounded book for everybody.
Byzantium is the special mineral that everybody wants a piece of. two month submersible that can stay under water for more than 2 months time might just be the answer they need to get the minerals.
Thing that amazes me is that this book was written before they even located the Titanic so this is quite the story about it all.
Just when things are on an even keel a hurricane is in the area...
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

This original and unique version of the sinking of the Titanic brings together a group of lovable characters who look danger in the face as the dead rise, scratching, biting, eating and being far more dangerous than any iceberg, and they took me on one hellacious voyage.

Reading progress update: I've read 83 out of 244 pages.
The Night Lives On - Walter Lord

"...The Board of Trade regulations required her to carry boats for only 962 persons, but the White Star Line liked little flourishes and threw in space for an extra 216. In a "worst case" situation the Titanic might lawfully have gone to sea with lifeboats for only 27% of her passengers and crew."

 

I am always dumbfounded that there was a time before "a boat for every butt". I even read earlier that one of the First Class survivors was offended more of the lower class survived because they took up space in "First Class lifeboats" and more gentry should have lived. It was honestly beyond their realm of understanding that lifeboats were for everybody, and every single passenger deserved to live.

Beyond Reach
Beyond Reach: The Search for the Titanic... Beyond Reach: The Search for the Titanic - William Hoffman

It's hard to imagine a time before we knew where the Titanic rested. But for more that 70 years it slept in the North Atlantic without a soul knowing it's true location. I was drawn in immediately by the prologue of Thomas Andrews, the designer of the Titanic, and his heroic final moments trying to save as many lives as possible while his precious ship foundered. This book, despite being full of science terms I am unfamiliar with, was well written and compelling. It gripped me. I cried, I got goose bumps, I felt for these people- both the Titanic passengers and the Gyre passengers alike. Wow. I am so pleased with this read. They were pioneers in trying to locate the grave of the Queen of the Ocean.

 

 

RIP Thomas Andrews

LIFE Titanic: The Tragedy that Shook the World: One Century Later - The Editors of LIFE

This week marks the 105th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. While it's Easter weekend, I will be delving into some very old original texts from the 80s my father gave me so I can learn to tell fact from fiction in this massive world tragedy. From Walter Lord to Robert Ballard, I've got the best and brightest here. Over 2200 set sail and only 706 survived. I'm eager to learn what historians and scientists believe truly happened to this beautiful, doomed ship. Once I'm done with these, I may then read The Sinking of the Titan to see the eerie similarities.
