liked it
bookshelves: first-reads, thriller

I was a bit wary as I began reading, thinking the use of colloquial speech and vocabulary word make the book hard going. However I was wrong; instead it gives the book a distinctive flavour, alongside the descriptions of a bustling New York.

I liked the mass of divergent characters, some real and some fictional, who come together to tell the story of the sinking and possible sabotage of the Normandie. I also liked the way the fictional storyline, tied together with some historical unknowns, was woven into real, known events, and involved people all the way from the bottom and the top of the White House.

Although I enjoyed it, this book is probably more aimed at men: a 'bloke book', definitely not 'chick lit'!
