Bought this book and was looking forward to reading about the time on the ship and the immediate aftermath...but there was little of that time period and the majority of the book was about her adult life and travels. I also found several spelling errors in the book. A very disappointing read. Don't waste your money.

Made the story feel more real.

HASH(0xa0097fcc) out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Aug. 21 2012
By hazystar - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Eva Hart was just seven years old when her life changed forever on that cold Sunday night on April 14th 1912. Eva's articulate & detailed account of that fateful night gives a poignant insight to the tragedy through the eyes of a young, vulnerable child who lost a beloved father on that cold starry night in April 1912. Denney's biography on Eva Hart covers her life story right up till her death in February 1996. I found the whole "picture" of her life story very interesting as it gives the full impact of how one's life changes dramatically after such a tragedy.

This book is an updated version of Denney's; "Shadow of the Titanic", it has an added chapter on Esther Hart's (Eva's mother) account of the voyage, found in personal papers after the death of Eva Hart. This book has some interesting information not known when the original title "Shadow of the Titanic" was written. It also has more illustrations/photos than "Shadow of the Titanic".

I found it most interesting that after Eva's funeral service, refreshments including FROGS were offered to the people attending the service; you will have to read the book yourself to find out the significance of the frogs!

I highly recommend this easy to read book which describes fluently an enthralling chapter of history, it would make a worthy addition to any Titanic historian's personal library.

HASH(0x9f0850b4) out of 5 stars Not for the historian or historical buff. Sept. 25 2012
By seywhut - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The play up to this book is completely overrated. If you are expecting chapters on Titanic memories you will be sadly disappointed. Miss Hart's recorded interviews have much more information than this book. Titanic memories are more generically and quickly dealt with. After about the first two chapters you are thrown knee deep into her post Titanic personal life which is bit boring. I mean it is interesting what she did later in life but the rest of the book goes into great detail about it. Every few pages the name Titanic is worked in there somewhere to make you think she is still on subject.

There a few interesting pictures I've never seen before but I would wait until this book is in the dollar bin before I'd buy it. You have to put it down and come back to it every few days. I came away with a different impression of Eva Hart - that of a self-impressed snob.
HASH(0x9f082dd0) out of 5 stars A Straightforward Memoir. April 28 2016
By Brad - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a good addition for anyone wanting to add to their RMS Titanic Bookshelf. Eva was seven years old when this event happened so that is essentially where the book begins. It is only covered for two or three chapters but I did not feel like I was short-changed. This is a memoir and as such it does what it is supposed to do. It covers her life not just her experience on the Titanic. My only gripe would be the title of the book as it suggests the entire contents are about her experience on board the ship. I was not fooled by this however. I knew what I was getting as it states on the top of the book that it is her memoir. It probably would have been more appropriate to use the original title of this book as originally issued: Shadow of the Titanic. Nevertheless I enjoyed it as I was always interested in her story.

HASH(0x9ea21abc) out of 5 stars The Titanic is fascinating but Eva Hart is not Jan. 1 2014
By Rat lady - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Eva Hart said that she couldn't talk about her experience of the Titanic tragedy for 40 years but she doesn't really talk about it in this book either. She tells her life story with little reference to the one experience which would draw you to read this book. I began to find the book (and Eva Hart) irritating, and only continued to read it in the hope of finding some personal insight into how her early trauma had shaped her life but it never came. She comes across as an emotionally closed off person and appears quite snobbish towards the working class who she comes into contact with via employment and volutary work. I found this quite amazing for someone who had seen first hand that although different classes might not live together, they can certainly die together.
