Over one hundred years ago, the mightiest “unsinkable” ship began her maiden voyage to cross the Atlantic. An engineering feat eleven stories high, the Titanic contained a list of passengers collectively worth $250 million when she left port on April 10, 1912, but she would never reach her destination. The Titanic collided with an iceberg on the night of April 14, and 1,500 people died in the freezing waters as the ship met her watery grave.

Spectacular in many ways, it’s a story that has spurred legends and still sends shivers down the spine a century later. This minute-by-minute account of the sinking is based on over twenty years of research, and offers amazing detail of that fateful night. Read by Martin Jarvis, it’s a riveting account of one of the world’s biggest maritime disasters and the behavior of the passengers and crew.

Some sacrificed their lives, while others fought like animals for their own survival. Wives beseeched husbands to join them in lifeboats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; and hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped below decks, sought help in vain. From the initial distress flares to the struggles of those left adrift for hours in freezing waters, this audiobook brings that moonlit night in 1912 to life for a new generation of listeners.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Walter Lord’s A Night to Remember, about the sinking of the Titanic, was the best book about a disaster I had ever read.”

    David McCullough

  • “Stunning…one of the most exciting books of this or any year.”

    New York Times

  • “Seamless and skillful…it’s clear why this is many a researcher’s Titanic bible.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A magnificent job of re-creative chronicling, enthralling from the first word to the last.”

    Atlantic Monthly

  • “This classic study of the unsinkable Titanic still packs an emotional wallop. Of course, we know what’s going to happen, but the pleasure here is in the telling and the anticipation created by the author’s minute-by-minute account of the doomed ship. What could make this story even better? How about a terrific narrator who has a classically trained English voice that not only lends élan to the book but also heightens the tension and adds expert pacing? Check off all of those boxes, as Martin Jarvis fits the bill with talent to spare. Jarvis alternates his reading to match the text, ranging from a learned professor informing us of a historical event to a breathlessly excited observer drawing us into the story. It’s a must-read. “

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Abby Warren | 2/19/2014

    " I don't know what it is about the Titanic...I know how the story is going to end, and it's not going to change no matter how many books I read about it. This book is great because it gives information that was not necessarily given in the news accounts. You really get a feel for what happened in those 55 minutes and how the unsinkable, actually sunk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jacki | 2/19/2014

    " Great insight, so much information, facts and names. I really need to read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Karen | 2/19/2014

    " This is an interesting historical document, written in 1955 about the sinking of the Titanic. The author had the advantage of being able to interview survivors and include their quotes, but the information is relayed in such a dry fashion that there's not much emotion to be found. I got the most choked up when reading about the rescue preparations on the Carpathia, not when anyone was actually drowning. I'm glad I read it, but now I want to find a more in depth book about the tragedy. Or maybe I don't. That would probably make me feel angry and sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kirsten | 2/18/2014

    " One of the most classic books on the Titanic sinking, and its easy to see why. The author had the benefit of being able to interview the actual passengers and their families, thus getting the stories told by people who experienced it firsthand. A well-rounded look at the night the Titanic sank - not just what happened on the ship itself, but what was happening on the ships nearby. "
