  • Very Enjoyable

    A young Irish stewardess named Annie Hebbley survives the sinking of the Titanic. She is a woman who is running from her ruinous past. On board the ill-fated ship, she immediately becomes embroiled in the drama of her first class passengers as she finds herself drawn to a gorgeous baby with a captivating father and luminary mother. The novel unfolds in two alternating timelines, April 1912 and November 1916. Four years later, Annie is working as a nurse on board the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, refitted as a hospital ship. In this haunting tale of madness, obsession, devotion, and betrayal, Alma Katsu intermingles the history of the Titanic and its sister ship the Brittanic with the lives of the passengers and crew credibly and artfully, along with just the right level of factual information. Added to the blend is a soupçon of the paranormal, and I reckon that some might have liked to see more of this, but for me it was the perfect balance, as any more would have made The Deep a charade. I enjoyed the shifting points of view which weren't difficult to follow, and each character added an element to the story that kept events interesting and mysterious. A great first read for me from Alma Katsu! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from Bantam Press via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Abandon Ship

    It's not often I have to give up on a book, but this was the case with this one. I felt distracted and disengaged all the way reading the third of it I did actually get through, and I kept waiting for something meaningful to happen with the main characters, or any of them for that fact. The characters are so lightly drawn they made scarcely any impression on me, and I felt little for any of them - of course, this is a book about both the Titanic and the Britannic, both of whom have deep histories, but again the impression of each ship was barely there. In the end I decided to abandon ship on this book, my brain cells were starting to flatten and life is too short for uninspiring books.

    Thanks for your feedback!
