Review:

After taking on the ill-fated Scott expedition to the South Pole in her previous book, Birthday Boys, Bainbridge tackles a much larger 1912 disaster: the sinking of the Titanic. The narrator, a 22-year-old named Morgan, brushes up against real-life victims such as John James Astor early in the voyage, while falling in love with the beautiful and unobtainable Wallis Ellery. The deadly maiden voyage of the world's largest ocean liner becomes a journey of self-discovery in this portentous, postmodern work, shortlisted for the 1996 Booker Prize.

Review:

“Kerry Shale, surely one of the most versatile of voices, brings all the pensive wit of the text to the fore.”
Irish Times 3/5/97

“This is one of those rare literary events that can be unequivocally recommended with confidence to any reader or listener. Kerry Shale reads brilliantly, adding another to his growing list of audiobook triumphs.”
Oxford Times 21/2/97
