The storyline is one that is hard to believe. Good quick read though.

This work is mentioned in almost every Titanic history, and it did not disappoint. It is, of course, impossible not to superimpose what is now well known about the Titanic into the beginning of this story. As it was written long before the Titanic was built and sank, Morgan Robertson's apparent precognition was eerie. Of course, after the original descriptions of the Titan, the romantic plot becomes the focus. It is melodramatic and completely improbable, but forgivable given the popular culture at the time of its writing. What I found confusing was B&N's numerous editions of this title, and the range of prices assigned to them. Why? I was further nonplussed to discover that B&N's major competition offers the book in digital form for free as it's in the public domain. As I have an e-reader in the competition's format as well as my Nook, I downloaded the "freebie" and found that, not only did it contain Futility or The Wreck of the Titan, but many other short stories by Morgan Robertson.

This book has been called "a nineteenth-century prophecy" due to its striking similarities to the actual wreck of the Titanic, which occurred fourteen years after this story was published. I had been wanting to read this book for some time to see for myself the "prophetic" story of an 'unsinkable' liner named the Titan which struck an iceberg in the Atlantic one April, whose passengers perished due to a lack of lifeboats. This book wasn't exactly what I thought it'd be, probably since I had books like "A Night to Remember" in mind, where most of the action focused on the time immediately before and after the iceberg was struck. This story, on the other hand, wasted little time (a paragraph?) sinking the ship, and the rest of the book focused on the story of a survivor who beats the odds and rescues the small child of his former love interest.Despite not meeting my expectations, I actually really liked the story that did take place, as it was a story of personal survival and redemption for the protagonist, who showed a lot more character than I had taken him for initially.
