The Only Way to Cross: The Golden Era of the Great Atlantic Liners - From the Mauretania to the France and the Queen Elizabeth 2 by John Maxtone-Graham
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I was excited to read this book, but overall disappointed. It felt like a self published book almost, sort of like a book of town history or genealogy, with an insider's perspective that was hard to understand. The narrative flow was weird too; there didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason other than a loose chronology. It's clear Maxtone-Graham (has a great name) loves sea travel and writes knowledgeably and occasionally interestingly about it - but it's that occasionally that's the operative word here.
