Product Description


Praise for Gordon Korman's Titanic series:

"Though best known and loved for his humorous books, Korman has proven here, as he has with the other adventure series he's penned, that he is far from a one-trick pony." - Quill & Quire

"[Korman] knows how to spin a lively and engaging tale. Hanging it on an already fascinating, albeit tragic, slice of history means it wins on all levels: a thrilling account of a heart-stopping disaster, and a set of fictional characters seamlessly intertwined with real life." - The Montreal Gazette

"Korman manages to tell the story of the Titanic smoothly while also introducing other elements of the early twentieth century...Altogether an enjoyable read that makes this tragic story come alive with personal narratives." - Resource Links

"Highly Recommended" - Canadian Review of Materials

About the Author

Gordon Korman wrote his first novel, This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall!, when he was only 12 years old. To date Gordon has written 70 middle-grade and YA novels, including two titles in the #1 New York Times bestselling series The 39 Clues. Gordon lives in Great Neck, New York.

Bought all three books in this series for my father as a Christmas present. I didn't read the description well enough or the reviews, as they are children's books. My mistake and my Dad still wanted to read them so as long as he get some enjoyment from the tale they were worth the buy.

UPDATE!!!! Jan 2nd, 2014 - I talked to my Dad today and asked if he had looked at these books yet or ready any of the first one...he has already read all three and enjoyed them very, very much!! He said they were great stories and very factual based on all the other Titanic books he had read over the years, my Dad is 83 almost 84, so he has read a few! He really like the story portion as apposed to it just being data.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! Dec 29 2011
By Jardon - Published on
Format: Paperback
This second book in Gordon Korman's Titanic triology is a fast-paced narrative driving the reader onward just like the enormous engines of the ship itself. Chapters build to a crescendo, leaving the reader (my 8 year old and I) loathe to stop for the night and head off to bed! The first volume hooked us on the characters and their stories. The second volume continues the story of the four friends as they find themselves in a fight for suvival due to both a mysterious "gentleman" and the mortally wounded "unsinkable" liner. I highly recommend this volume (as well as the first). We will be starting the third tonight.

4.0 out of 5 stars (Also Posted on Goodreads) Aug. 18 2013
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Four children of wildly different backgrounds confront Jack the Ripper as the Titanic sinks.

Alfie is a GREAT name!
Historical fiction with a twist? Who can pass it up?
Complex characters with different motives.

Too much lingo...
The real accident could easily have been prevented, making this trilogy sad. :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Names, but Some Confusion Aug. 14 2013
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
You've got all the right things for a good book--the name Alfie, a huge twist, and a really talented author--but somehow it came off as mediocre. Maybe it was the lingo, or maybe how sad this accident really was(probably both), but something stopped me from loving this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't really approprate for my 9 year old--Parents beware Jan. 14 2014
By Dana Sherman - Published on
Format: Paperback
My son (upon the suggestion of our school's librarian) selected this book for his 4th grade scrap book book report. When he was done reading it there was still time before he needed to work on the report so I decided to read it as well. I mistakenly through he had a book about the Titanic told through fictional characters. It is rather a whole different story told using the Titanic as it's setting.

**Spoiler Alert**

My son is not sheltered but I would not have had him read a book that indirectly tells part of the story of Jack the Ripper. There is a scene where "Jack the Ripper" is going to murder one of the girls. Ultimately, she is saved when the ship hits the iceberg. It was not something a 9 year old needs to read about.

There are themes that were hard to explain to son:

-Why someone would save people who murdered their best friend.
-Who Jack the Ripper was?
-Why he liked killing best with a knife but was willing to use a gun.

There are plenty more but these are the ones stand out.

As I read the book report my son produced it is 100% on point and correct but not really appropriate for a 9 year old. I can only imagine what his teacher will think when she reads it.

I believe the material is well written and language wise on point for a 8-12 year old, however, the material wasn't really appropriate for a child this young.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun twist on history Jan. 10 2016
By August - Published on
Format: Paperback
I listened to these books through, and the narrator was brilliant. The plot is tight and well-woven. The pacing is quick, so each of these books is about 3-3.5 hours each. Easy listening. Had I been reading, easy reading. These grab the reader and don't let go. I did have a tiny bit of issue telling the two girls, Sophie and Julie, apart at the beginning, but that went away fast. They defined themselves and kept to their definitions. And despite the short length of the books and the fairly large cast, everyone had attention paid to them. I could see the character development. I didn't feel like anyone in particular got shafted or left out. And even though Paddy is clearly the driving force behind the whole trilogy, he doesn't get that much special attention. He's at the center of the wheel, but he's still part of the tapestry. Everything would have fallen apart without any one of the characters.

I loved the addition of the Jack the Ripper mystery to the Titanic story. I thought it was brilliant, or else this could easily have been just another "THE SHIP IS SINKING WHAT DO WE DO?!" story. Korman nailed this journey with that subplot addition. It turned a disaster book into a pursuit book, and I think it was brilliant. It certainly grabbed my attention.

That said, I don't think it should have been three books. Korman could easily have combined them into one book and been done with it.
