4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Illustrations - Great book for children, May 18 2014

This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (Hardcover)
This book is geared towards children 7 - 12 years old. It gives the story of the Titanic from the perspective of one the surviving children. Marschall does an excellent job in illustrating the ship and providing photographs of the journey. The actual sinking and rescue are handled quite well and it's clear the author has put a lot of thought into how to talk to kids about the tragedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, March 24 2004
This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inside The Titanic, March 12 2002

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
This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (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
This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ken Marshall's work, June 5 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (Hardcover)
As always, Ken Marshall's depictions of the liner are as true to life as he can make them, making this book an invaluable reference in my model bulding and serves as an excellent link to remind people that behind that steel skin was a huge floating place of temporary residence, containing all the opulence of the finest european hotels inside a giant steel structure. Definitely worth having in an ocean liner book collection, especially if you like Titanic and her sisters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable interior drawings, Nov. 5 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (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 Very splended., June 13 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (Hardcover)
When I got the book from the school library, I thought the book was very fantastic, even though I could tell some pictures had some added detail then all my other books did. But I liked it.
