Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage review á 3 review Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage E Titanic has often been called “an exuisite microcosm of the Edwardian era” but until now her story has not been presented as such In. It has been a long time since I have read a Titanic book but even so I think this one is a little different than the ones I remember reading One can tell a great amount of research has gone into this very readable and informative book centering on the many of the people on board the Titanic and their backs stories The usual descriptions of the dinners and the luxury found on the boat is there as well but it also covers what many of the people did while on the boat Somehow or another getting to know a little about these people made the evacuation and the sinking even personal and tragic This is a good albeit chilling read
