My "Titanic" Book Report by Ryan Pearl Feb 15, 2006
In the first couple chapters, the book tells how wonderful the Titanic was. Very wealthy people were on the Titanic. People asked members of the crew if the boat could sink. The crew all said no it could not sink. The ship was built with the best of everything.
The story of the Titanic begins in Southampton, England and was to end in New York. Unfortunately, most of the story takes place after the Titanic hit an iceberg around Iceland in the Atlantic Ocean.
The ship hit an iceberg and began to sink. There were lifeboats on the ship but not nearly enough for everyone. Women and children were allowed on the lifeboats before the men. Wealthy people in first class got to leave before the poor people in third class. Many families did not want to be separated from each other and some men were chicken and wanted to get on the lifeboats before all the women and children were safe. In some cases the men were able to leave with the children and the mother stayed on board.
There were 2200 people on board the ship. In the end only 713 people survived. Over 1500 people died when the ship sank.
