Read full description of the books Każdy troszczy się o siebie:There is something endlessly fascinating about the sinking of the Titanic. Perhaps it is the idea that people were going about their business, enjoying their lives, until hours before they were suddenly swept away into oblivion. Perhaps it is the number of blunders that contributed to this disaster and how easily most of them could have been avoided. Perhaps it is the feeling you get that certain events are destined and nothing could prevent it happening, or the indiscriminate way some people survived while others died. Or perhaps just the unparalleled opportunity it gives us to glimpse man at his best and his worst, extremely courageous or abjectly cowardly, facing death with a bravery you cannot imagine, or scrambling to save only himself without regard for others at all.
Whatever the allure, I confess to being always willing to be drawn into another tale of the events of that cold April night. In that regard, however, I do not find this to be one of the better told accounts. I did not connect to Morgan, and certainly not to his rich and pompous friends, or find his behavior either before or during the disaster to be particularly enlightening. The first half of the book plods, but the second half that deals with the sinking itself moves at a pace that takes your breath. I feel that must have been how it seemed to those on board--a slow and easy ride, right up until the moment it was excruciatingly over.
I enjoyed the book, but was not overly impressed, and I was astonished to know that it was short-listed for the Booker. If you want to read a tale about the Titanic, I highly recommend A Night to Remember.
To my own good fortune, this book was published in 1996, thus fulfilling a criteria for a challenge I have taken on for the summer...so, everything is good.
