Book Summary: Once a celebrated Naval officer, John Rowland has fallen from grace. After slipping into alcoholism, Roland is dismissed from the Navy and shamed. Having lost everything, Rowland now works as a deckhand on the Titan, operating deck machinery and keeping watch. However, Rowland is just as shocked and horrified as the civilian passengers when the mighty ocean liner collides with an iceberg, beginning the ship’s slow sink to ruin. As the Titan sinks, its passengers are frenzied, as they realize that there are not enough lifeboats for all of them. Amid the chaotic panic of the wreck, Rowland finds the young daughter of an ex-lover and is immediately drawn to protecting the child. Together, Rowland and the young girl fight for their survival, rushing to escape the ship and hoping to find a lifeboat. With their lives on the line, Rowland understands that this is his chance at redemption—if he can find a way to save them both. Filled with drama, suspense, action, and sentiment, The Wreck of the Titan by Morgan Robertson has remains to be engrossing and fascinating to modern readers. First published in 1898, The Wreck of the Titan has earned a place in pop culture with film, television, and literary allusions, and is often compared to the historic sinking of the Titanic. Since the Titanic wrecked over a decade after Robertson’s work was released, audiences have even suspected Robertson to be precognizant, though the author himself denied this and brushed off the similarities. This edition of The Wreck of the Titan by Morgan Robertson now features a new, eye-catching cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of The Wreck of the Titan crafts an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original mastery of Morgan Robertson’s work.
