  1. Gregory Mone Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Dangerous Waters: An Adventure on Titanic book, this is one of the most wanted Gregory Mone author readers around the world.

  2. The whole city had come out to watch Titanic and the strong, heavy smell of coal filled the air After a few breaths, gritty black dust coated his tongue The taste of progress, as Mr Joyce called it.Synopsis April, 1912 The RMS Titanic sets sail for her maiden voyage with than 2000 people aboard Among the passengers on the Queen of the Sea a wealthy book collector with a rare and valuable volume, a cunning thief desperate for money, and a young steward looking for a chance to be a part of someth [...]

  3. First of all I loved all the different point of views The characters were very lovable I really loved James he seemed like a perfect big brother Though there were a lot of names to remember in the first two chapters that it can get a little confusing.The book is quite descriptive but it still left me thinking up my own idea of the setting The Titanic is beautifully described The book didn t have the amount of suspense as I hoped It was good, but it definitely didn t blow me away I wish Greg coul [...]

  4. It s hard to find an accurate and well written fictional book about the Titanic Dangerous Waters , however, meets my expectations It was engaging, satisfying, and even after I finished, still exhilarating The thing that reeled me in was the main subject of the plot books My favorite pastime is reading, so if there is a Titanic story out there that really focuses on the wonder of books and the terrible loss of books that went down with the Titanic , then it s probably an automatic favorite of min [...]

  5. I liked the book I only rated it four stars because at the start it was a little confusing I saw the picture of the titanic on the front so i know it would have somthing to do with a voyage on the titanic and how it sunk But it took a while for me to realize that someone was going on the titanic since the start of the book was some weird guy in a library threatening someone in the middle of the night Then the book magically went to he titanic Besides that i liked the book.

  6. For the book Dangerous Waters An Adventure On The Titanic i chose to give it 4 stars because of the two different perspectives I also liked this book because it had a mini cliff hanger at the end of every chapter.The last thing I liked was the thrills it gave me for example when Patrick was being chased inside Titanic by John Berryman who had a knife

  7. Holdie and I read this aloud and it was a great take on historical fiction for intermediate readers and adults too

  8. Patrick is a 12 year old Irish boy whose brother is working as a trimmer coal shoveler on the new Titanic, and Patrick wants to go with him so he palms the pass of a drunkard who was supposed to be a trimmer on the Titanic On board are two thieves who want to steal a rare book owned by a wealthy passenger who takes Patrick under his wing and reminds him of the value of knowing books One detail in the book tells about the fire in the coal bins that smolders for the entire trip I just saw a Smiths [...]

  9. This book was great It really makes you stop and think I really enjoyed all the characters, and the story was told very nicely

  11. Twelve year old Patrick wants to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, who s a trimmer on the Titanic Patrick manages to sneak on the ship and land a job as a spittoon holder, a task suited for his slight frame than shoveling coal On board, Patrick stumbles across a plot by a man looking to steal a rare book from Harry, a book collector who s taken an interest in Patrick s education Patrick has to figure out what secrets the book could hold and what he should do now that he s been asked [...]

  12. Presumably the title does not refer to the under aged hero also named Waters as Mone portrays him as a milquetoast and eventual professorial type Rather it must refer to the North Atlantic even though technically the dangerous bit was the ice floating in the water the water itself was actually quite smooth Fun fact oceanographic scientists guestimate that the iceberg may have been tooling around the North Atlantic for some 3,000 years before finally getting to send a boat to the bottom.After the [...]

  13. Gregory Mone can write I was pleasantly surprised from page 1 Atmosphere and plot, though amply developed, don t get in the way of the action of this well thought out, historically based tale of Harry Widener, his rare book collection traveling home on the Titanic, and the two purely fictional men plotting to steal a particularly special one for the secret formula it might contain But the main character is Patrick Waters, a young man who wants to do in life than wash dishes at his local Belfast [...]

  15. As a general rule I m not one to read a book, or watch a movie, about an event that is so widely popular So, I surprised even myself when I picked up this book and began reading What I found was a highly engaging, hard to put down mystery surrounding a rare book, its owner, and two men who want to get their hands on it to extract from it a supposed cryptic alchemy formula for turning things into gold Through the story we also get to meet Irish brothers James Patrick Waters who have left their ho [...]

  16. Short review Middle Level Great book for hesitant readers, or those who HATE HISTORICAL FICTION ELEVEN 11 Full review, featured on blog I bought this book to add to my school s library from Unfortunately, historical fiction is rarely read in my school and I wanted to find books to draw students into the genre This book appeared to be all that I could hope for and it was The stories surrounding the Titanic tend to me popular anyways, but adding the actiony mystery to the mix was a nice touch Part [...]

  17. At first, I didn t know this is the story about the titanic I don t know a lot about the titanic and I only watch the movie when I was little so my memories about it was unclear I knew the titanic was a large ship but when I was reading I was thinking there could be other large ships built, designed to be unsinkable This cause me not to enjoy the book in the beginning chapters but later on as I got accustomed to the plot, it was a great book The character, Harry, in the book somehow makes me thi [...]

  18. With all the recent attention to the 100th anniversary of Titanic s tragedy, this book is a great introduction to the subject for middle grade readers It s well written, with a glimpse of both the workers on the ship, and the elegant first class I particularly enjoyed getting to know about the Trimmers.The main story is a little bit of a mystery that involves a valuable book, secrets, villains, and an unlikely 12 year old hero Young Patrick Waters finds himself following his brother onto Titani [...]

  19. I enjoyed this book I love all things Titanic so there was that But this was a clever and historically accurate story.It was too short for me I could have read about Patrick s family and life in Belfast, heard about the antagonists journey to find the book, and Emily was barely in the thing The ending felt a little abrupt for me too But I have to remember this was written for kids, and most kids like to chew up books in little bites.That being said, I was surprised how intelligent this book wa [...]

  20. This book took you on a different story on the Titanic I actually enjoyed it Though the first couple of chapters were pretty slow, the descriptions are amazing Reading the descriptions you ll be able to imagine just exactly what is going on, what the characters look like, etc It describes the Titanic perfectly Though there could have been a bit adventure in this book for my taste, a younger audience would actually find this very adventurous and would love it It s a great read for kids in middle [...]

  21. What did I think I loved it, as my rating should make clear This book was a real page turner I wanted to know whether the young protaganist, 12 year old Patrick Waters, was going to do the right thing and whether he would foil the scheming of the intellectually snobbish villains If I was going to give it a genre, I would say this is a literary mystery, historical fiction, satire, suspense, adventure and The attention to historic detail enabled me to really visualize what it must have been like [...]

  22. Patrick Waters, a 12 yr old, steward on the Titanic, meets a wealthy American book collector on board, who decides Patrick will be his prot g Harry Widenor is carrying a very rare and very valuable book that may have a secret code At least two book thieves think so Patrick helps foil their several plots to get the book while the ship is sailing We all know the fate of the Titanic that adds to the tension in the story as the reader wonders which of the character will survive and if the book survi [...]

  23. This could possibly be my 1st read aloud for next year s 5th grade class The main character is a boy who is smart and gets entangled in a mystery aboard the Titanic Loosely based on the real life of one of the characters, this could lead to an interesting study on the Titanic The great ocean liner Titanic is preparing to cross the Atlantic Onboard is a sinister thief bent on stealing a rare book that may be the key to unlocking infinite treasure a wealthy academic traveling home to America with [...]

  27. June 23, 2013Patrick Waters loves books but hates to admit it because he thinks reading and dreaming are what made his father weak When given the opportunity to join the crew of the Titanic, he jumps at it He can t cut it as a trimmer in the boiler room but becomes a personal steward to Harry Widener a very rich man who has in his possession a very valuable book written by Sir Francis Bacon that two villains are attempting to steal.I felt the story started out a little slow, but it is packed wit [...]

  28. Another Titanic book, yawnwe already know the endingBUT WAIT A new twist here Who knew Sir Francis Bacon was there No, he wasn t really, but one of his books was Based on the rare book collection of a real passenger, Harry Widener I had to pay attention to the characters at first with all the twists, but once I had them figured out, it was a breeze and I settled in for the ride, or should I say, voyage.Not too many other books focus on life in the boiler rooms and the Trimmers, so that added a l [...]

  29. This book is like the Titanic The boat was going along the Atlantic ocean and all of a sudden the boat fits a iceberg and the boat starts to sink and it takes awhile to sink but people are trying to get on the other boat that they had that is a escape boat But back than they let the higher wealthy people rich people go first so the other people were getting on the boat first and then the boat just splits in half and people are falling crying jumping off the boat These two people survived the si [...]

  30. So, this book is written from multiple 3rd person perspectives One of them is a thief, searching for the secret that will bring his master and maybe him to gold Another is A boy, whose father is a thinker and came to nothing He disguises himself as a trimmer to get on board, and is sent to the man who has the book s personal steward He learns from him and the thief tries to get it But as we all to well know, the boat was on a collision course with an iceberg and on its way too the bottom Will it [...]
