Reviews

`A masterpiece of narrative history' Mail on Sunday

`An astonishing work, of meticulous research, which allows us to know, in painful detail, the men and women on that fateful voyage. Even now, a hundred years later, Mr Davenport-Hines finds a new, and heart-breaking, story to tell' Julian Fellowes

`Eloquent and absorbing... As well as being a fascinating work of social history, Titanic Lives is a remarkable study of empathy and its absence. As such it will stay afloat long after the armada of other Titanic books have gone down' Frances Wilson, Daily Telegraph

`Richard Davenport-Hines's immaculately researched history brings an extraordinary cavalcade of characters to vivid life' Sunday Telegraph

`Fascinating social history' Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

`By far the most gripping book on the subject...he manages to maintain an extraordinary forward momentum, yet at the same time rescue from the deep, the biographies of hundreds of people...Davenport-Hines's sense of what to reveal when is perfectly tuned' Rose Tremain, Guardian
