Once upon a time many years ago a teenaged me loved this book. That girl loved the history and romance of ocean liners and everything Edwardian. That girl also didn't know how many other well written fiction books were written about Titanic. Teenaged me grew up and some twenty (give or take a year or two) years later picked this book up again to see if the magic was there. It wasn't. I barely made it past the Titanic chapters I was so angry. The history was not only off, but she basically made i ...more

Oddly enough, I actually felt like reading Danielle Steel last night! Although I own at least ten of her books, she is not an author I read often, and in this case, actually reread. I enjoy her books, but it's a kind of guilty pleasure, like watching days of our lives or something. But still, I read it in one sitting, so it's all good.

Firstly, the Titanic disaster has always been something I read about with deep sadness, and this book is no exception. The first time I read this book I was in tea

A minha opinião:
Danielle Steel soube aproveitar, e a meu ver bem, a trágica história do até então maior navio do mundo, o Titanic, e fazer um fantástico romance. De facto, seis das principais personagens viriam a sobreviver daquele que na altura se diziam ser inafundável fazendo-nos seguir as suas vidas durante e após a catástrofe.
Edwina, e a sua família, tinha viajado até Inglaterra para comunicar aos seus tios, Liz e Rupert, o seu casamento com Charles, que se realizaria em Agosto de 1912. Ne

No greater book

I have read many books by Danielle Steel but none have ever moved me the way this has. No greater love is a story about courage human endurance and most of all love. The book is based around the Winfield family and there tragic trip aboard the fated Titanic. The Winfield's have travelled to England in order to celebrate there eldest daughter's engagement to a young gentleman who is now accompanying them home to America onboard the Titanic for her maiden voyage. The tragedy unfolds

It's more of a 2.5 rating.

Word of warning: only the beginning of the book is set on the Titanic, so don't pick this up if you're interested in only reading about the doomed ship. However, it's a lovely exploration of familial bonds and surviving that traumatic night.

Everything about it screams of the cheesy, almost airport paperback, novels your mum or great aunt secretly read but I found it increasingly difficult to put down, helped by the fact it's exceptionally easy to read [anyone looking at

Achei incrivelmente pobre,este romance, comparativamente ao potencial do enredo. O tema "Titanic" parece afundar-se no dia-a-dia aborrecido desta família. A Edwina (irmã que emerge da desgraça com a responsabilidade de cuidar dos irmãos órfãos) fez-me chamar-lhe estúpida em vez de bondosa. É esse o problema das personagens da Steel - são sempre mártires. Aborrece-me seriamen - ora vejam: têm sempre infâncias infelizes, pais ausentes - ou muito bonzinhos, que morrem - e são sempre esbofeteados ci ...more

Because I’m a sucker for all things Titanic, I grabbed this book from the library booksale shelf several years ago. This is the first Danielle Steel novel I’ve read. I liked it a lot because of the subject material, because it falls into my favorite genre (historical fiction), but mostly because it was a really good story. Edwina’s unselfish care of her siblings after the deaths of her parents and fiancé is heartbreakingly beautiful. She never thinks of all that she is missing in life except in ...more

Between 2.5 and 3 stars. I would've loved this book in middle school! I liked the Titanic aspect and it surprised me that this was written before the movie came out. The elements of the boarding, first class life, and the sinking were exactly like the movie. I didn't like the flow of them book and it would definitely have been edited way down had it been written in current time. There were no real paragraphs or start/stop to people's thoughts. The titanic part is over relatively quickly and then ...more

Le subí el puntaje de 2 a 3 estrellas....aunque lo justo serían 2.5...definitivamente es un gusto culposo. Lo escogí porque el tema Titanic me obsesiona...aunque es muy poco lo que habla del naufragio y creo que podría haber sido más emotivo, me picó porque no podía dejar de leerlo.
Los personajes son o muy buenos o muy malos, y muchas situaciones son predecibles y muy "rosas" porque todo les sale bien...a pesar de eso, me gustó...no es un Nobel, es una lectura fácil y entretenida, melodramática.

A story about the 'perfect' family and what happens to them after the sinking of the Titanic. Rather predictable and very simplistically written, which makes for a very fast and easy read. You feel bad for the family and all that the children endure during the sinking. But as their lives move on the story just gets a little grating on how the eldest daughter struggles to keep the family together. It is a nice story of overcoming fears and prejudices.

if u love the TITANIC, then read it. It is all about a girl who had to carry out the responsibility of her parent, who drown in The Titanic. Not only her parent but also her fiance, she carried his death in her mind till she met a cousin of his, who later 'set her free'.
It's a novel full of suspence, love, emotoins, death, mischieves ...
Cant say enough, just get urs and u will never regret it. But get ready for tears.

Penso que este terá sido o primeiro livro de Danielle Steel que li, e ainda hoje adoro os livros dela. Uns melhores do que outros, mas nunca dou por perdido o tempo que passo a ler aos seus romances.
Esta estória tem como plano de fundo o naufrágio do Titanic e apesar de dramatica, fala ainda de segundas oportunidades e de esperança.

I am not a huge Danielle Steel fan, but I have to list this as one of my favorite books of all time. It was the first book I read for just pure pleasure. I read this book the summer before I was a sophomore in college and it still remains one of my favorites. I loved the richness of the characters and the passage of time in the book through the Titanic, World War 1, etc.

Carte mai siropoasă ca asta nu am citit :D e atâta tragedie în ea, aşa banal prezentată, încât, nesimţita de mine, am râs în hohote la situaţiile povestite. Prea e încurcat totul, am o impresie că însăşi scriitoarea îşi schimba ideile la fiecare câteva pagini. O telenovelă scrisă, cu femei hipersensibile şi bărbaţi supereroi. :D

Hell yes I'm giving a Danielle Steel novel 5 stars. This is at least the 10th time I've read this since first picking it up during the Titanic-craze of 1996. It's got all the Steel hallmarks, done at their best. I read probably 20 of her others books throughout high school and this reminded me of just how fun and light they are. Might be re-reading more in the future. And I'm not ashamed.

Táto kniha bola vážne dobrá.Aj keď som zo začiatku mala v tom zmätok,ale keď som sa začítala,tak sa stránky obrácali veľmi rýchlo.Príbeh o Titanicu bol skvelý a ta bolesť a strata v tom príbehu tam bola citíť.
7/10.

From bestselling novelist Danielle Steel comes No Greater Love, an epic story of family and devotion. When her parents and fiancé die in the Titanic disaster, Edwina Winfield is left to raise her five siblings alone and must put aside her own hopes and dreams. The characters are fairly well-written, and Steel does a good job at incorporating historical events and stays true to the time period. However, Edwina is kind of a difficult protagonist to identify with; as she really has no desires or go ...more

Este livro mexeu muito comigo, pois não só me fez chorar de uma forma diferente de outros livros, pois não foi só emocionar-me com as personagens principais, mas também pela dor de tantas vidas perdidas e da tragédia que embora tenha ocorrido há 101 anos, ainda tão sem sentido e dolorosa mesmo hoje,já não existindo nenhum sobrevivente vivo, tal como naquela altura... Além do mais, também eu tive perdas devastadoras em idade muito nova (em questão de meses perdi a minha avó materna e o meu pai, a ...more

In 1989, she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having at least one of her books on the Times bestseller list for 381 consecutive weeks. But Guinness was premature. The fact is that one or more of Ms. Steel's novels have been on the New York Times bestseller list for ...more
