"This an interesting book about the mighty Titanic sinking. The novel includes story's about the 2,200 passengers and crew aboard the vessel as it sank. Also other story's about how Frederick Fleet not having binoculars to spot the iceberg, and when he did, it was too late. If the iceberg was seen earlier it would have saved the ship and all the people that died on the voyage. Also about other ships seeing the distress signals and playing them off. It's an interesting book which would be 3/5 stars." said.

"A unique approach to re tell the story of the Titanic that many of us know and sustain curiosity for more and more. This is a graphic novel ie comic book take on an event that overseas an array of characters and personalities that make up the events of the night no one will forget. We are immediately thrown into the action and not given much of a history lesson on the ship itself but instead the reader is immediately put into a setting that involves fear, bravery, courage, and the will of survival. Amongst human error and an over estimation of sheer technological abilities the characters must develop new strategies to save as many lives as possible aboard a doomed ship. The book is hardcover and the illustrations are simple yet colorful in a classic comic pin print style." said.

Summary: This comic book is a true story of the Titanic tragic voyage. First it begins by explaining, the different people who were on the ship. Then it explains how the collision happened. The Titanic was going too fast, that it was hard for them to steer the boat away from the iceberg. The Captain gives orders to get as many people off the ship onto the life boats. Many families were separated because they were only allowing women and children onto the life boats. At 2:17 the Titanic split in half. About two hours after, the Carpathia reached the scene. They helped the survivors on board and try to comfort them as best as they could. When they arrived in New York City, thousands of people were waiting to search for their friends or family members. Unfortunately, many people learned the worst that day.

Critique: I like this book and will definitely use it in my classroom. I have a student now that really enjoys reading comic books. If a teacher can find a format in which the student will enjoy, they should definitely use it. The student will be more interested about reading about a time in history through a comic book.

Teaching prompt: After reading the book, the teacher can refer to page 9 and ask the students "do you think the operator could have avoided the sinking of the Titanic, if he would have just rushed to get that message to the Captain?"

Craft element: After reading the book, the students can write about how they might have felt if they were waiting in New York City for their family or friend and learned that their loved one was not on the ship.

" A great way to get students interested in non-fiction books! Great pictures and facts. " said.

"I chose this book from Park Middle School's list of Capstone non-fiction e-books. This book is a graphic novel take on the story of Titanic. It is great for readers from third through - sixth graders, so children 8 and up. The book is very appealing due to it's bold pictures on every page. The pictures are emphasized because it's a graphic novel, so there are less words that pictures. The book is fast-paced and full of information on the sinking of Titanic. It would keep the interest of most readers. " said.

I just finished The Sinking of the Titanic by Matt Doeden. Matt Doeden makes information books sound very interesting. It’s very hard for that to happen when writing information books. He does a great job of describing all the details of how devastating it was. This was a graphic novel and so there were speech bubbles from people who were saying things during the event of the Titanic. He does a great job of making those words sound realistic- and just perfect, in my opinion. I know some of you have already head of the story of the Titanic, but it was a very devastating story of a ship that hit an iceberg, and sank. Some of people were not off the boat in time to save their lives so thousands of people died. Many families and friends were very sad. An event in my life where I was sad was when I didn’t get on a soccer team that I wanted to be on. I tried to get on the team just like the people tried to get off the boat. Not just like it, but it felt like it! I was devastated for days, and I bet those people were devastated for a way longer time! This book was very action-packed because there is no way the Titanic could have been a slow story. Things were happening so fast. The book was very fast-paced because, just how I explained it was action-packed, it was fast-paced. Overall, Matt Doeden was a very good writer, but the Titanic was a very sad story!
