ᥖ ᘪ The Night Lives On: The Untold Stories and Secrets Behind the Sinking of the "Unsinkable" Ship—Titanic (The Titanic Chronicles) Online Read ᦝ Ebook Author Walter Lord ᦽ You might say that Walter Lord provoked the whole Titanic mania by interviewing dozens of survivors and fashioning their reminiscences into the classic non fiction novel A Night to Remember, which was made into a 1958 film that heavily influenced James Cameron s 1998 epic Some of the dialogue is vivid than the 1998 film when a kid sees the deadly iceberg, he says excitedly, Oh, Muddie, look at the beautiful North Pole with no Santa Claus on it. But much has been discovered since Lord s original book made waves such as the shipwreck itself, and a wealth of scientific inquiry So he wrote this semisequel, which tackles each of the remaining mysteries about the unnecessary calamity in a methodical, but quite readable, fashion How come the wireless operators blew it so fatally Maybe they would have had better operators if they paid them than 5 a week as Lord notes, it would have taken a wireless operator 18 years to earn one transatlantic ticket How come the Californian just sat there in nearby waters and neglected to save anyone on the frantically signaling and flare firing Titanic Lord quotes a man on the nonsinking ship admitting to a certain amount of slackness, which he uses for a sardonic chapter title. Some of the characters are sympathetic, such as Renee Harris, who used the money she won suing the Titanic owners for her husband s death to bankroll neophyte playwright Moss Hart s first show Lord says that Hart s memoir, Act One, depicts Harris reacting to an opening night flop with optimism After you ve survived the Titanic, what s to worry Walter Lord has gotten better reviews, and he needn t fret about his reputation The Pulitzer Prize winning historian Barbara Tuchman, author of A Distant Mirror, had this reaction to Night Lives On Stunning his detection and discoveries make a first class historical reconstruction and a model in the research and writing of that difficult art Tim AppeloYA The Titanic , tragically, was not unsinkable, but her legend has shown much greater seaworthiness Walter Lord has written a companion volume to his A Night to Remember Holt, 1976 Subtitled New Thoughts, Theories and Revelations about the Titanic, the book is just that It sheds light on the answers to questions both great Who was most responsible for the tragedy and small Just what tune was the final one played stemming from the events of April 14, 1912 The Night Lives On is an excellent source for students seeking information on the tragedy Lord s sense of detail, anecdote, and human interest is as sharp as ever, making this book both informative and entertaining Karl Penny, Houston Public LibraryCopyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.
