I think this is the best book and it has to win.
Okay, persuade us — why do you think it is the best book?– Kate Davie

Usually I’m not that into nonfiction, but this book was great. Even though I already knew the outcome, I couldn’t help but hope the Titanic would be all right and complete its voyage.

This was a good book but I like fiction books.
Well, good for you for trying a book that was written partly in a different genre, and I hope you enjoy some of the fiction titles as you continue on down the list. — Kate Davie

you are stuck with me and your book is a pease of art work and never come back
Well, ZS5, you have me a bit confused. We’re happy to be “stuck with you,” and I am delighted that you think that Titanic Sinks! is a piece of art. But it’s not mine in any way; it was written by Barry Denenberg. I’m not sure who or what the “never come back” refers to — me, Mr. Deneneberg, the book, or you. Could you clarify? — Kate Davie

THIS IS A GOOD BOOK
What makes you say that? Why do you think it is good? — Kate Davie

I really like this book because it has alot of history about the Titanic and it tells you about what happened in 1912. My favorite character was the captain of the Titanic. If you like books about history, boats and non-fiction I highly recommend it!
What a treat to have such a renowned swordsman visiting our blog! — Kate Davie

The Titanic Sinks is a good book because it told you what happened to the survivor’s, unlike most other Titanic books. I also liked how it told you about other events, like when the guy jumped off the ship with the book strapped to his chest.
I haven’t read this one yet — what was the book that the passenger thought was so important? — Kate Davie
Kaylee | December 5th, 2012 at 7:34 am
When I was reading this book I learned about the captain’s life story. It was interesting to learn about the passengers in the different classes on the ship. this is a super spectacular story and you should read it.
uriah | December 5th, 2012 at 7:31 am
I want to read this book. It looks really good. What really fascinated ed me is that the men had to stay on the boat and the girls had to get in the rafts. Also I was surprised when the captain said he was not getting off the ship.
It sounds as though you know a lot about the content of this book — are you sure you haven’t read it? I hope you will let us know your additional thoughts when you have read it all the way through. — Kate Davie

The Titanic Sinks is really good and I think a lot of people will like it. I know I sure do. The middle and ending are good, but the beginning is so awesome. It has a lot of description, which I like a lot.I thought it was fascinating how fast the chambers filled up with water.This is just the best DCF book I have read so far and I think it will be the number one DCF book for this year.
Skyler | November 30th, 2012 at 7:44 am
I liked the book Titanic Sinks because it wasn’t like the other Titanic books because it told you what happened to the people that survived
Destiny | November 30th, 2012 at 7:39 am
Titanic Sinks! is a really good book. Of all the book I read they didn’t really talk about the captain that much, but this book explains a lot of things about him, like how he was always calm. If you enjoy real facts about Titanic Sinks then i think this book would be good for you.
fuge monkey | November 29th, 2012 at 3:57 pm
i read this book and it is so sad what happens
ben | November 28th, 2012 at 11:11 am
I read this book during some spare time I had. I had some help from my friend who told me this book was a good spare time book. I think this book is really helpful if you are looking for some REAL facts about the Titanic. I also like that they have a fake person that is on the Titanic so you can really feel how scary it was for them. I would recommend this book to someone like me who LOVES nonfiction books and wants learn more and more about old fashion history.
Maury | November 28th, 2012 at 7:39 am
THIS BOOK IS GREAT! It has lot of facts about the Titanic. It is also cool because it has a made up person’s story about how it might have been on the Titanic. And, it has lots of pictures of what it looked like. If you like ships or history read this.
ROOOOOOOOOO | November 27th, 2012 at 12:45 pm
I think that it is a really good book and I recomend it for anyone who likes and enjoys the history of the Titanic
Creeper man 121 | November 21st, 2012 at 8:59 am
This book is awesome! Read it. And i”m starting to read Apothacary soon. Leave a comment.
Why do you think it’s awesome? Because of the topic? Because of the way it blends fiction and non-fiction? — Kate Davie
frank | November 19th, 2012 at 12:33 pm
i like this book because it shows the pictures of the titanic and the people that rode on it.

Italy | November 5th, 2012 at 8:16 am
Germany told me to read this, and I did, this book is nearly as good as PASTA~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you mean it’s tasty, or it makes your brain feel full, or it gives you mental energy for marathon thinking? — Kate Davie
Raspberry | October 31st, 2012 at 11:26 am
It had a pool inside it! Weird! I thought it was great though!
It told you about how it sunk, and which parts first sunk!
PopGoesTheWeasel | October 15th, 2012 at 10:14 am
I really want to read this book, based on the comments.
Well, Pop, let us know if it lives up to your expectations! — Kate Davie

The author really hit what he wanted to do. He wanted to make you feel like you were really there. My favorite part was the journalist because of the surprise in his adventure. I recommend this book to everyone.
Meghanrose | September 16th, 2012 at 1:22 pm
This book does a very good job at giving readers an image of what it was like being on the Titanic, and then gives first-hand documents from actual passengers aboard the vessel. My favorite part was reading about a journal with an amazing story as to how it was discovered (trying to avoid spoilers ). If your teacher is pushing you to reach out to nonfiction books, this is a good start. Way better than your average boat book. The Titanic and its history are actually more complicated and interesting than many people think. The movie doesn’t cover all of what’s here!
You are very persuasive, Meghanrose! May I quote you when I am recommending this title to people? — Kate Davie
Stephanie McMahan | September 14th, 2012 at 8:57 am
It tells about what happen to the Titanic
There have been many books written about the Titanic. Do you think this one does a better job of explaining the events surrounding its fate? — Kate Davie
rainbowssuperstars | September 11th, 2012 at 5:06 pm
This book is actually pretty interesting and you get to here a lot about the Titanic and you get to here from some passengers that survived the ship wreck… it’s a lot better then it looks
Well, that’s a solid recommendation if ever I heard one! — Kate Davie
