The Watch that Ends the Night by Allan Wolf
The Watch that Ends the Night
The Watch that Ends the Night was an incredible book that recreated the sinking of the Titanic. The aspect I liked about it was that it focused more on the actual people on the Titanic, instead of the mechanics involved in the Titanic's sinking. The story is told from the point of view of about twenty characters, each of them unique in their own way. It's easy to tell that Wolf did his research. Wolf did such an amazing job describing the people, it felt as though they were long-lost friends, or people I had always known. Once the end of the book came, I was genuinely distraught when some of them didn't make it in the end. I highly recommend this book for Titanic fans, or even people who don't know much about the Titanic - I was one of those people, and this book is easily on my top five book list! It's an amazing book that I know I'm going to read again and again!
Rating: 5 Hard to imagine a better book
