Not much diving but interesting story

I got this book the second I saw the names of the Shadow divers in the description. As a diver I really enjoyed Shadow divers and was expecting a similar book in this one. I was pretty dissapointed when I realized this wasn't what the book was about. However, once I got over that Chatterton and Kohler dissapeared after the first hour I found it pretty interesting. Titanics myth and what really happened that cold night almost a hundred years ago, and what led up to it, was a good listen. Fortunately the divers return in the last hour and I got some diving stories after all! As long as you buy this expecting a good history lesson about Titanic and not a diving book you should be ok!

Loved It

I was almost afraid of listening to this book.

I didn't want to be disappointed after listening to "Shadow Divers", which is another Chatterton, Kohler story, which is one of my all time favorite audiobooks.

I was pleasantly surprised. The book intertwines the story of the Titanic from plans to sinking along with the current day story of diving to explore its mysteries.

The reader is the only detraction in this audiobook. He reads it like a "B" Actor in a bad movie (and a poor B-actor at that). This wasn't enough; however, to downgrade the rating.

A definitive recommendation!
