The Devil in the White City: A Saga of Magic and Murder at the Fair that Changed America | Summary Book Preview: In 1912, Daniel Burnham and his family are aboard the RMS Olympic, the second largest cruise ship in the world and sister ship to the Titanic. Burnham has gained fame and wealth from aiding in the construction of the World's Fair at Chicago in 1893. Nearly two decades later, Burnham is 62 years old and unable to enjoy the cruise ship outside of his room due to his foot injury. While he's confined, Burnham delivers a message to Frank Millet, a dear friend aboard the Titanic. In light of the Titanic's accident, the message is rejected. This news distresses Burnham, because Millet was one of the only living supporters of the Chicago Fair since its completion in 1893, and inspires him to share the events of the era. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book. This book contains: Summary of the entire book Chapter-by-chapter breakdown Analysis of the listening experience 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

April 15, 1912 Soon, Titanic's voyage will come to a deadly end with the sinking of the unsinkable. This is the story of the final 48 hours of the RMS Titanic, its first and last voyage. The story is told in a compelling countdown that ends mere hours after the ship's sinking. This book describes the last days, actions, and thoughts of architect Thomas Andrews and passenger Margaret Brown, known as the Unsinkable Molly Brown, as they interact with other passengers and crew members during these last 48 hours. While Miss Brown enjoys her cruise and her interactions with everyone onboard, Mr. Andrews is at first proud and then haunted by this stately ship. What starts out as a happy and joyous occasion soon turns to dread and despair at the news that the Titanic has hit an iceberg. Miss Brown and Mr. Andrews are on the same yet very different mission of saving passengers while forgoing themselves and their own personal demons and dangers. While chaos and panic ensue, lives will soon be saved and also lost as the Titanic breathes her last breath and gives Molly Brown and Thomas Andrews very different endings. What were Captain Smith's and Ismay's thoughts and actions during this horrific time? How could such a proud start turn into absolute horror? What are the consequences of the decision to forgo more lifeboats? How could an exciting voyage with world elite onboard turn into a horrific voyage of death? 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Scott Bennett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/085953/bk_acx0_085953_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Voyagers of the Titanic: Passengers, Sailors, S...

Late in the night of April 14, 1912, the mighty Titanic, a passenger liner traveling from Southampton, England, to New York City, struck an iceberg four hundred miles south of Newfoundland. Its sinking over the next two and a half hours brought the ship—mythological in name and size—100 years of infamy. Of the 2,240 people aboard the ship, 1,517 perished either by drowning or by freezing to death in the frigid North Atlantic waters. What followed the disaster was tantamount to a worldwide outpouring of grief: In New York, Paris, London, and other major cities, people lined the streets and crowded around the offices of the White Star Line, the Titanic’s shipping company, to inquire for news of their loved ones and for details about the lives of some of the famous people of their time. While many accounts of the Titanic’s voyage focus on the technical or mechanical aspects of why the ship sank, Voyagers of the Titanic follows the stories of the men, women, and children whose lives intersected on the vessel’s fateful last day, covering the full range of first, second, and third class­—from plutocrats and captains of industry to cobblers and tailors looking for a better life in America. Richard Davenport-Hines delves into the fascinating lives of those who ate, drank, reveled, dreamed, and died aboard the mythic ship: from John Jacob Astor IV, the wealthiest person on board, whose comportment that night was subject to speculation and gossip for years after the event, to Archibald Butt, the much-beloved military aide to Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft, who died helping others into the Titanic’s few lifeboats. With magnificent prose, Voyagers of the Titanic also brings to life the untold stories of the ship’s middle and third classes—clergymen, teachers, hoteliers, engineers, shopkeepers, counterjumpers, and clerks—each of whom had a story that not only illuminates the fascinating ship but also the times in which it sailed. In addition, 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Sachs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/002771/bk_harp_002771_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
