      This was a really interesting book.I found that this book was a very historic book and very very sad.The Titanic book was sad because, in the beginning of the book the people who made the Titanic said that the ship was '' unsinkable.'' Yet, all of those people died from hitting an iceberg. Sure if the ship hadn't have hit the iceberg maybe it would't have sunken. I don't know but that was a very sad story.

          This story was great. Now you may be thinking, "This book isn't for me, I don't like non-fiction." Clear those thoughts out of your head. This book is technically non-fiction but you can't tell. The way it is written makes it seem like fiction.
