Because I really loved [The Hunger], I had great hopes for this book, but it turned out to be a disappointment. It is about the historical sinkings of the Titanic and, four years later, its sister ship, the Brittanic, with a few of the same people on board both ships. The story is very slow to develop, with a lot of characters who I frankly didn't really care much about. There is a supernatural element, but I didn't find it all that scary, and there is a bit of a twist at the end, but I liked the twist I made up in my own head better. Sorry to say this was a letdown for me. ( )

I couldn’t wait to read this. A ghost story aboard the Titanic...a ship that has always fascinated me. My grandfather worked as a young man in the shipyard that build the Titanic. This tale is supposedly based on at least some truth...the writing had a surreal, hypnotic quality which suited the mystical storyline. Events alternated between the Britannic (1916) and the Titanic (1912), and Alma Katsu seamlessly wove historical fact and fiction to such a degree that it all seemed absolutely possible. There is an unsuspected twist close to the end but the entire story is filled with lots of interesting historical facts and tidbits. ( )

Based on the implausible premise that spirits caused the sinking of the Titanic (not to mention all manner of calamities in the days before the ship sank), the complex story is intricately plotted and apparently well-researched. The only character I liked, however, was John Jacob Astor’s Airedale. I found myself eagerly awaiting the appearance of the iceberg. ( )

Creepy book set on both the Titanic and the Britannica (its sister ship that also sank) that is perfect for Halloween season. Also since I’m not going any where near a cruise ship in the near future, perfectly fine to be reading about water spirits and that unsettling feeling of being on the deep sea (at least for me). I don’t know much about the history of either ships but later learned that a few characters in the book were real life passengers and that indeed there was a staff member, Violet Jessie, who served on both ships – and survived. Fascinating. Also rather disturbing… I can see how she served as inspiration for this book.

But back to The Deep. Like Katsu’s previous book, The Hunger, this is historical fiction with a supernatural twist. But it is done so very skillfully and woven into the plot and brings in both ages-old mythology and superstition as well as the spiritualism that was popular at the time.

I loved all the detail and research that went into this book. Even the minor characters are just felt so well-rounded and believable. And while we all know the fates of these ships, I couldn’t put this book down thanks to great characters both real and imaginary, all those small historical details, and that delightful satisfying feeling about reading a well-written book.

Other people would probably enjoy this book more—it just wasn’t really my thing and moved too slowly for my taste. Well-written and interesting, just didn’t wow me. ( )

Though readers will be aware of the inevitable tragedies awaiting, Katsu successfully injects suspense into both time lines, spinning a darkly captivating tale of hauntings, possessions, secrets, and class through a multitude of perspectives, as readers slowly come to understand the truth of Annie’s often odd behavior. The historically predetermined ending may keep readers from connecting emotionally to the narrative, but Katsu’s artful writing and calculated pacing keep the pages turning. This is an impressive, horror-tinged trip back in time

A riveting, seductively menacing tale of love, loss, and betrayal set amid the glamour of the Titanic, filled with seances, sea witches, and second chances. Hand to fans of Dacre Stoker, J.D. Barker’s Dracul, or Lauren Owen’s The Quick.

Regrettably, though, while crosscuts between the voyages add tension and a kaleidoscopic narrative adds color and depth, the book ultimately founders beneath the weight of glacial pacing, paltry plotting, and sketchily conceived paranormal elements. Carefully researched and meticulously crafted historical fiction fused with ho-hum horror.
