    My first Larson book

    Probably the easiest way to say what I thought of this book is to say that since I've read two more of Larson's books. I think I still like this one the best. The sinking of the Lusitania had a big impact on world events, moreso than the other two books that I've read of his (Devil in the White City and Midnight in the Garden of Beasts) and I think that provides a better scope for his work than those other books. WWI gets forgotten, but the machinations that went on during it, including the use of submarine warfare have had effects that we are still feeling today. This book which provides a look into what all went into the sinking of the Lusitania provides some much needed color to a small part of a huge conflict that was very easily read.

    Great read

    Larson writes a great book, and this is no exception. He makes it personal by telling us the stories of survivors and victims. There are still questions about the tragedy but you are left in a better position to ask the questions. I will re-read this title.

    It was okay....

    Seemed like a collection of biographies about the various passengers, of course with descriptions of the actual attack and sinking. The writing was fine, but for some reason this book just didn't "grab" me. Your experience may vary, I can see how alot of folks gave high ratings, but I managed to scrap my way through the first half of this book but I have a very long reading list, so I don't like to linger on a novel that does not interest me when I have hundreds of books that I am itching to start reading. Some day I will attempt the second half.

    Best book about lusitania.

    What Walter Lord did for Titanic now Larson does for Lusitania. Couldn't put it down and sad to finish it.

    Dead Wake

    Fascinating sequence of historical events using biographical information of numerous actual travellers. Information on German submarines and officers, a real bonus. Again, reality far more interesting than fiction. The book is hard to out down. A gem.
