This is my second bookshot I have read, I remember the first one being decent but nothing amazing and I wasn’t sure if these little books were for me, however, I kept seeing this one and I always liked reading about the Titanic so after some deliberation I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did.

Bookshots are meant to be a quick read and this definitely was but it had all the action I would want packed into this small book. Who knows, maybe something like this did take place on the Titanic, it was told realistically and kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page.

I know that there are many mixed reviews for this one but for me it was really enjoyable.

Bookshots as a whole are disappointing. Seems to me to be ideas not worthy of a full book, to pay more than 99 cents for a short story is just making Patterson more dollars than he needs. Although we have purchased everything Patterson and his co-writers have put out to market we will not be purchasing any more Bookshots..

It seems that the new "Bookshots" by James Patterson are thinly written with often predictable plots. "Taking the Titanic" was a disappointment to this avid fan of Patterson's previous works.

This is a good read, but the style is rather baffling. Two con artists, posing as a married couple, Nigel and Cecilia Bowen, board the Titanic to con people out of money, or to pick pocket valuable items from first class passengers. The book is written in the first person of each of the crooks. Some chapters he narrates and some she narrates. As long as you don't stop reading in the middle of a chapter, this works. But if you stop and come back to the book, then you are instantly confused unless you check the beginning of the chapter to see who narrates.

Great mystery! I really didn't want this book to end. I hope that there will be a sequel about the main characters. This was non stop action that caused me to read without stopping. I love books like this. The book is written so well, it's quite believable. The characters are very realistic.

I certainly enjoyed reading The Titanic. The story is basically the same but it takes you in a different direction through the not so wealthy. It will hold your attention until the very last sentence is read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This is an interesting story that includes accurate, historical facts about the Titanic. I like the BookShots audio tapes as they are perfect for three to four hour trips. They have fewer characters and less complex plots, which makes them easy to follow with the interruptions of travel.

There is just no way to adequate pan this colossal awful book. Disjointed....weak...hard to read and follow. I am stunned Patterson would put his name on this crap.

Some people have said the author is getting very predictable, we'll have a read of this. We start in the uk, crime committed. The action moves to what was supposed to have been the greatest ship on earth, where the struggle for right against wrong continues to play out. There are the usual twists and turns as you would expect, but moving the action to the titanic worked well. Nice price, nice quick read

A different and rather good short story, (although clearly not written by James Patterson!). Could have had a slightly more believable ending. Having said this, it is well worth reading - especially given the intriguing setting of the "Titanic".

The best Short story I've read. Fast pace, good character development & very enjoyable read. Titanic enthusiasts won't be disappointed with the context of the story either!
