The Watch That Ends the Night: Voices from the Titanic

Written by Allan Wolf

Although this book is written in verse I never felt like I was reading poetry. This book chronicles the lives of some of the surviving and doomed passengers aboard the Titanic. The author has done a great job conveying the experiences of each individual, from the famous, like John Jacob Astor, to the not so famous rat on board. He even gives the iceberg a voice. Throughout this book you gain a better understanding of the last few days and even minutes of those passengers aboard the Titanic as she hit the berg and then sunk.
