5.0 out of 5 stars Superb March 24 2004
Format:Hardcover
This book is a superb piece of art. For whom have little or no idea about Titanic architecture, it's a must have. The big drawing in the center of the book is truely amazing. It's also an ideal companion to have when reading testimonies by survivors, for it adds much to the feeling of being there.

Inside the Titanic Book Review
Frank's room is a tiny third-class cabin. Billy and his family are traveling in a luxurious suite. But both boys are thrilled to be on the first voyage of the greatest liner ever built. They can't wait to explore every deck of this fabulous new ship. Read this book and you can follow "two young passengers as they explore the Titanic from top to bottom". This book is by Ken Marshall. I liked it because it showed and told how it sank. So I hope you like Inside the Titanic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inside the Titanic is spectacular! June 4 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Telling the stories of survivors & their families,HughBrewster weaves a fascinating description of life aboard thegreatest "unsinkable" ship of its time. Ken Marschall's amazing cutaway illustrations draw you in to the immense boiler rooms, endless cabins, kitchens & dining halls of this opulent & ill-fated passenger liner. Each page demands that you linger long, catching every detail, reading each description. A wonderful effort which will definitely create more lovers for the romance of this lost liner!...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book. Nov. 13 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Many other people have said what the book is lacking in factualdetail. The book is meant for children who usually aren't interestedin water tight bulkheads and how a steam engine works. The paintings are superbly executed by ken marshal, the leading authority on how the titanic looks. If you want to see more of his work, he has a book with many of his paintings in it called ken marshal's art of titanic. It is a great book also.

Format:Hardcover
The paintings are wonderful, but too limited. I would like to see more of the ship than one side of it. The book should have showed detailed deck plans (perhaps along the lines as those available thru New Steamship Consultants), and more paintings of the ship's interior spaces that are usually never seen, particularly the engine spaces. Also, detailed drawings of how the steam system worked to propel the boat would have also been very valuable. I think the book lacks a lot of substance. Moreover, the publishers made no effort to counteract the effect of full page spreads passing through the binding; thus, portions of the paintings are completely lost to view. Additionally, the book should have showed the much discussed watertight bulkheads, and how the boat filled with water in such a way so as to counteract their effectiveness, and to ultimately defeat their purpose. I hope the author revises the book along these lines. In that case, I would buy it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable interior drawings Nov. 4 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book has the most outstanding paintings of the Titanic and it's interiors. A good comparison between first and third class, revealing the life of two families on board. The paintings are immaculate and detail and attention are visible. The paintings are few though and tease the reader. Very little interior is ever seen of Titanic and once it's exposed, as in this book, it teases you with the most outstanding paintings. The book describes the Carter family, when a cutaway is done on B deck it reveals cabins B84-82-78-76-(72). From the book you read that the Carter family had a dog, and in one of the cabins a dog is seen, missleading the reader that the Carters were in those two staterooms. Qite actually the Carter cabins were further aft, numbers B96-98. Otherwise the book is most pleasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just For Children March 15 1998
Format:Hardcover
Although this book was meant for kids - everyone will certainly enjoy it! I bought it for my nephews this past Christmas. (11 and 9 years old) James Cameron's film had just come out. The boys hadn't seen it, but they were interested in the disaster. When I saw this book I knew they'd love it! I honestly thought about keeping it for myself! Beautiful illustrsations and a captivating story. You really get the feel of how immense this ship was to two very young boys. It may not be exactly accurate - but it was designed as a children's book and not as a practical schematic for engineers. If you have kids who are interested in the Titanic disaster ( or if you're a history buff) I highly recommend this one!
