An excellent account of the Titanic before and after she sank. Hopkinson relies on accounts from survivors to beautifully illustrate to readers the splendor and tragedy of the ship. Excellent photographs work very well with the type of paper used in the book. This book is hard to put down as some of the people described are among the ones to drown and you don't know about some of them until the end. Hopkinson tells the story chronologically, introducing characters as the information she has about them fits. The reader may be a little bit confused as characters read about in the beginning reappear in the middle, but Hopkinson reminds the reader what each person's job was or what class they were staying in. An excellent book that I hope wins some type of award.
