The WORST Titanic Novel I've EVER REad!!


If you happen to see a listing for Titanic: a Love Story, at a site such as Amazon.com please do yourself a favour and pass it up. I didn't and have lived to regret it.

First off the our Captain Smith is portrayed as a sex addict, J Bruce Ismay is just unspeakable and the two "heroines" of the story are name Swan and Smoke (no, I am NOT making this up emoticon !) Oh and lest I forget, Lightoller's first name in this mess is Chuck!

I guess when I saw the "heroines" were named Smoke and Swan, I should have given it a wide berth. Unfortunately I didn't. emoticon

Thanks for the advice. There's nothing worse then investing a bunch of time in a dissapointing book.

Re: The WORST Titanic Novel I've EVER REad!!


Believe it or not I read that thing a couple months ago...yup it was weird. Bought it in a used book store for a dime...I figured a Titanic book--any Titanic book--is like pizza or sex: even when it's bad it's good.
It was close to breaking that rule...but I did manage to finish it. (I was on a camping trip and it was the only book I had with me.)
