5.0 out of 5 stars Lusitania REX a great read for people interested in this time period and ships. November 25, 2014
A historical fiction of the events leading to the sinking of the Lusitania. Fascinating look into the lives of the people who went down on the ship. If you like the historical period of the early seasons of Downton Abbey you will enjoy this book. I own a hardback special edition copy. I enjoyed the pictures. The author appears to have done a great deal of research on the historical characters involved. Anyone who is interested in ships and this time period will really enjoy reading the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Lusitania Rex was great fun to read December 12, 2014
Lusitania Rex was great fun to read. Even though it is a fictitious account of the Lusitania’s demise, it is clear that many hours of research went into the writing of this book due to the historically accurate descriptions and people. He weaves a fantastic story through the very real relationships and events that took place in the period leading up to the sinking of the Lusitania. Highly recommend.
5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant, exciting and fun. December 17, 2014
The writing is as stylish and elegant as the first-class passengers and the book is also exciting and fun. The author takes us above and below decks, and across continents, blending engaging fact with absorbing fiction and ranging from his characters’ most private thoughts and clubs to the huge historical issues of the time. I was gripped to the end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched historical fiction

Well-researched historical fiction about the events leading up to the tragic WW1 sinking of the Lusitania. I would recommend for fans of historical fiction and/or the period.
