I appreciated the author s attempt to focus on one social level traveling aboard the Titanic but he seemed to have little idea of what to do with the story beyond the initial concept I picked up Lives hoping to learn reams of details about Edwardian food fashion parties and travel I wanted to lose myself in a book that would make me feel like a privileged passenger on the TitanicUnfortunately I finished the book without any new understanding of what upper class passengers talked about on their journeys the etiuette and dress involved It all proceeded as most Titanic stories do take a range of characters give short intros to their lives before the disaster and then keep their stories running as the clock ticks down to the inevitable sinking I felt that Brewster missed a golden opportunity to examine the last moments of a legendary means of travel and a time that was about to disappear with the first guns firing in World War OneI was particularly confused by his odd digressions speculating on passengers sexual orientation I think Brewster was trying to make the point about how much moral values have changed in the time since the sinking but that point ultimately had little to do with the sinking or Edwardian society and ended up diluting the power and interest of the book s main focusWhile I enjoyed this uick read I remain unsure of who would be interested in reading Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage The dedicated Titanic fan will already be familiar with the scandal of John Jacob Astor s marriage the devotion of the Strauss couple and the dignity of Captain Smith Downton Abbey types looking for glamour and scandal will not find much to chew on here and very little detailThere are a limited number of people and angles you take on the Titanic tragedy and given

Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage Read & Download Ô 4 Free download ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Hugh Brewster Summary Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage takes us behind the paneled doors of the Titanic’s elegant private suites to present compelling memorable port. There are hundreds of books about the Titanic disaster but this one touches on the personal lives of the rich famous and not so famous first class passengers on the ill fated liner It is a different approach from most of the Titanic books I have read and it makes for fascinating readingThe author has done an amazing amount of research and never attempts to insert fiction into the actions of the passengersinstead he uses terms such as it may have then happened that Mrs Astor left the room but he lets the reader know that it is only a surmise on his part since it cannot be proven that certain things were said and done I appreciated that approachThe characters are complex not always likable sometimes extremely brave but always human in their responses and actions They could not grasp that the unsinkable was indeed sinking and many waited too long to react Others chose to go down with the ship believing in the women and children first credo or the fact that women would not leave their husbands It is a heartbreaking story which does not try to answer the uestion of how did it happen but rather how do humans who have lived in the lap of luxury all their lives respond to a situation over which they have no control Recommended

Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage Read & Download Ô 4 Free download ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Hugh Brewster Summary 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. A review copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher upon my reuestIt has been almost 100 years since the Titanic s ill fated maiden voyage that took the lives of over 1500 people Since that fateful night the story of the Titanic has been told again and again and again through books and film and even a successful Broadway musical The uestion on many people s minds as the anniversary of the Titanic disaster looms is Do we really need books about TitanicGilded Lives Fatal Voyage The Titanic s First Class Passengers and Their World by Hugh Brewster answers this uestion with a resounding yes Although hundreds of studies have been published on the Titanic disaster Hugh Brewster s newest book is not a rehashing of the same old Titanic story that we have heard time and time again In many books the story of the Titanic is the story of the ship itself how big she was how many people were aboard her how she struck the iceberg and ultimately how she sank Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage avoids making the Titanic center stage and instead thrusts the reader into the world of the most famous and noteworthy of Titanic s passengers The story of the Titanic presented here is not a cold tally of the dead or a countdown of her lifeboats but a human story about real people who lived and died and made human decisions that night allowing the reader to place ourselves on that sloping deck and ask What would we do It s clear from the outset that Brewster has done his research not only on the Titanic he has published previous works about the ship but on the world of its first class passengers and most remarkably their personal lives After all it is one thing to read about the disaster and see an offhand remark about Lucile Duff Gordan a popular designer or Frank Millet a popular artist and writer who survived and did not survive the disaster respectively It is uite another to be presented a history of their lives their loves their losses their passions and their personality while eventually learning of their actions during the voyage and the impact that their life or death had on their world Some readers may notice that Brewster sometimes has to rely on speculation such as remarking that perhaps Lucille Duff Gordon wore a certain dress on a particular evening Most of his speculations are based on research in the previous example Brewster is referring to a dress which was included in Lucille s cargo inventory and in my opinion are simply a necessity of writing about what is ultimately a human storyBrewster s writing is always engaging always clear and a pleasure to read There are black and white photos related to the narrative included throughout the book including some uncommon photos of the passengers and first class rooms Included in the postscript of the book is a concise guide to the passengers mentioned in the book with basic information about their lives whether or not they survived the sinking and when applicable their fate after the Titanic disasterI highly recommended Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage to anyone who has an interest in the Titanic whether they are picking up their very first books about the incident or have been studying the ship for years It is definitely a worthy addition to the long list of Titanic studies and I would say it s one of the most interesting and important newer Titanic books to come out in recent years I would also recommend this to anyone with an interest in the end of the Edwardian age especially early 20th century American politics Edwardian fashion and social history
