James Cameron's 1997 Titanic movie is a smash hit, but Walter Lord's 1955 classic remains in some ways unsurpassed. Lord interviewed scores of Titanic passengers, fashioning a gripping you-are-there account of the ship's sinking that you can read in half the time it takes to see the film. The book boasts many perfect movie moments not found in Cameron's film. When the ship hits the berg, passengers see "tiny splinters of ice in the air, fine as dust, that give off myriads of bright colors whenever caught in the glow of the deck lights." Survivors saw dawn reflected off other icebergs in a rainbow of shades, depending on their angle toward the sun: pink, mauve, white, deep blue--a landscape so eerie, a little boy tells his mom, "Oh, Muddie, look at the beautiful North Pole with no Santa Claus on it."

A Titanic funnel falls, almost hitting a lifeboat--and consequently washing it 30 yards away from the wreck, saving all lives aboard. One man calmly rides the vertical boat down as it sinks, steps into the sea, and doesn't even get his head wet while waiting to be successfully rescued. On one side of the boat, almost no males are permitted in the lifeboats; on the other, even a male Pekingese dog gets a seat. Lord includes a crucial, tragically ironic drama Cameron couldn't fit into the film: the failure of the nearby ship Californian to save all those aboard the sinking vessel because distress lights were misread as random flickering and the telegraph was an early wind-up model that no one wound.

Lord's account is also smarter about the horrifying class structure of the disaster, which Cameron reduces to hollow Hollywood formula. No children died in the First and Second Class decks; 53 out of 76 children in steerage died. According to the press, which regarded the lower-class passengers as a small loss to society, "The night was a magnificent confirmation of women and children first, yet somehow the loss rate was higher for Third Class children than First Class men." As the ship sank, writes Lord, "the poop deck, normally Third Class space ... was suddenly becoming attractive to all kinds of people." Lord's logic is as cold as the Atlantic, and his bitter wit is quite dry. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

For entertainment purposes, I recommend scanning down through the reviews of this book and reading any that are less than 5 stars. Hoo boy, what can you say? Walter Lord's book is a classic, the result of numerous interviews with actual survivors, and is probably as close as we will ever get to a complete recounting of the events of that awful night (also read Lord's "Night Lives On" where he adds some new information and corrects some errors he made in this book - he wasn't the only person caught out when the ship turned up in two pieces!). If you're just getting into the story or need to be cured of some of the more egregious excesses in Cameron's film, this is the book you need to read. On the other hand, if you're a victim of our educational system, go watch the movie. Hmmm.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von J. Michael Stevenson am 8. März 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read over two dozen books and articles on the Titanic disaster, and it is without reservation that I can say that anyone interested in what happened to and on that ship should READ THIS BOOK BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANYTHING ELSE CONCERNING THE TITANIC. Further, if you are a serious student of the Titanic, buy this book in trade paperback or even hardback; you will wear the trade paperback out (as I have.) The book is at once easy to read and pithy, presenting many of the confusing events in a clear and precise manner. Although the discovery of the wreck in 1985 and her subsequent exploration in 1986 and later have presented evidence which raises doubt on some of what Mr. Lord suggests may or may not have occured, the book remains in many ways as important as ever, not the least of which as an intellectual framework against which other works can (and should) be compared. It is worth refering readers to Mr. Lord's less stunning but still recomendable The Night Lives On, in which he revisits the disaster in light of these findings.

Format: Taschenbuch
Dear Amazon.com Readers,
With a passenger list in the back, detailing those who survived and those who didn't, "A Night to Remember," is a harrowing account of the Titanic's ill-fated journey from Europe to the United States.
The book really tells of the people who spent fortunes to get aboard the Titanic, the most luxurious cruiseliner of the time. I really don't think that this book can be compared to the movie "Titanic." They are both such different stories, that saying one is like the other is missing the point.
"A Night to Remember is much more than Hollywook hype. It is really more of a personal account of what happened aboard the ship, and the horrors of the sinking and of the rescues (most people died, only a few survived). I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the saga of the Titanic. This book is based solidly on fact, which is one reason I like it so much. I remember reading this several years ago, and being kept up at night as a result.

Format: Taschenbuch
I must be the only person who read this book years before the movie came out. As a child, this was one of my very favorite books that I have since reread many times. Lord captures everything: the social mores, the lavish banquets, the characters (the captain!), the conditions on the rest of the ship, and the tragedy of it all. The movie leaves nothing to the imagination, but this account is truly superb. If you never got a chance to read it, don't delay. You'll learn almost everything about the tragedy from a master story teller. The scenes right before they strike the iceburg are incredible, as are every scene of the evacuation. Finally, it's clear why no one wanted to leave the security of the ship. The worst tragedy of all was that many of the lifeboats were lowered with hardly anyone on them because they were afraid to leave the ship. Many more lives could have been saved.

Walter Lord's "A Night to Remember" is the first full text on the subject of the Titanic that I've ever read. I must say that for a first reference, it was spellbinding and literally I could not put this book down until I finished it. Mr. Lord's detailed narrative allows the reader to feel that the he or she is actually on that ill fated ship. The description of the events are so vivid that one can clearly picture the demise of the grand vessel. What is most striking to me is the apparent authenticity of the data that was known at the time of the writing of this volume. Mr. Lord writes clearly and from a standpoint of firmness which lends an incredible air of authenticity. Gladly missing from this work are the mindless theories that permeate throughout a majority of Titanic literature. Just a factual and as comprehensive, as much as the data can be verified, treatise on what actually happened on that terrible April night in 1912. Of note in this work are the whereabouts and status of the other ships in the area. Most references that I've read mention very little of the California and Carpathia just after the first distress messages were sent. Mr. Lord provides greater insight as to what these ships were doing and their eventual actions by their captains. The descriptions and actions of the principle players were mentioned in greater detail than in other references. Captain Smith was described as active by Mr. Lord which is probably the demeanor that should have been assumed by the captain of a ship rather than the passive, bewildered automaton mentioned in other works. Other persons were alluded to also that have failed to be mentioned in other works. These people, famous and not so famous, all made up the crew and passengers of the Titanic.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
