The Watch That Ends the Night: Voices from the Titanic - Allan Wolf This book was brilliant. Interesting - even enchanting at times - and succinct, but beautifully poetic, too.

I don't have the words to express the awe this book created for me.
Three specific pages come to mind as being nearly perfect: Mr. Andrews as the ship was going down; the pages depicting the emotions/commotions caused after the ship sank; the baker's page after being in the water for a while.

For these three passages in particular, the aesthetics were as perfect as the words.

Wolf's ability to capture the humanity in his semi-fictional characters (even those non-humans in the mix) made it easy to get lost in the tale ... and my unending interest in the ship that sank on my birthday 100 years ago made it even easier to stay hooked.
