Publisher's Summary

A mysterious man appears aboard the Titanic on its doomed voyage. His mission? To save the ship. The result? A world where the United States never entered World War I, thus launching the secret history of the 20th century.
In April 2012 Joseph Kennedy, nephew of John F. Kennedy, lives in an America occupied in the East by Greater Germany and on the West Coast by Imperial Japan. He is one of six people who can restore history to its rightful order - even though it would mean his death and the deaths of everyone he loves. A magnificent alternate history, set against the backdrop of one of the greatest maritime disasters of the 20th century.
David Kowalski is a medical practitioner, working in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Sydney, Australia. He has published numerous articles in various medical journals and textbooks. The Company of the Dead is his first novel.

Sailing into an alternative history

I admit to bias as I love alternative history, historical fiction & extremely long books. Maybe because of these reasons, I really liked this author's writing. I plan to read it again, as I know I will find even more reasons to like this book. It was a great listen for me so I will come back later & read it again.

What could go wrong?

What would have made The Company of the Dead better?

An interesting storyline

Would you ever listen to anything by David Kowalski again?

No (Made a note of the author to ensure that)

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator was fine

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

Great if you need something to help you sleep while driving.
The premise is good, sort of thing I like ... Time Travel, War, What "might happen" etc etc. But losing the will to live while trying to get to a bit that is interesting is not my idea of fun.

Longer than the Ship!

Far far far too long - I lost interest so many times but had to go back just to see how it would end. ....... Wish I hadn't bothered!
