Now, I could probably get past this, (despite the whole object of the exercise being to illustrate the headlines of the time) if the written word made sense......it doesn't. He has an aversion to commas and I must've read then re-read this passage to myself a dozen times, even out loud, to try and see if it makes sense and it just....doesn't:
"Not only witness testimony by the crew at the official inquiries on both sides of the Atlantic revealed that the ship had not hit the iceberg head-on but had brushed by it on the starboard side with an underwater protrusion ripping open the hull like a can opener."
If you can untangle that and it makes sense to you you're a better man than I !!
He also refers to survivors "which" had been picked up and I'd seen enough by then. This was a whole 10 pages in but some things you just feel in your water aren't going to improve.
I did have to smile to myself that some passengers were immigrants from Syria, even over a hundred years ago !!!
However, this needs to be properly scanned or printed up in a big old coffee-table tome in order to get the full benefit and also needs a good editing exercise.
I'd love to know what other readers awarding it 5* managed to read it on !!
