    4. Holy melodrama No heroine ever wallowed in self pity with tenacity than our Ellen except perhaps the dark and brooding Irish lad she loves Pignat s story has strong legs to stand on, but it s saturated with the superlatives of suffering I didn t hate it, but I did howl enough in the reading to have to give it two, not three, stars.As a side comment, the cover photo is cool, but what is it doing on this book Yes, a lot of people drown when the Empress of Ireland sinks, but the characters we care [...]

    6. My students loved this book about poor Ellen Ryan, exiled by her father, and packed off to a Magdalene home by her aunt I found the whole story quite overblown I couldn t believe an Irish bad boy with a bad temper Ellen s main love interest would be recording his distress in a journal and young women falling in love with troubled boys has been done to death I preferred the reporter to whom the central character conveyed her life story, but in the end he was a stick figure who disappeared into th [...]

    7. This is a strong 3 Star rating in my book This is saying a lot considering the fact that I nearly DNF d this book on page 35 I just wasn t feeling the romance at all and there were some truly melodramatic moments between Ellie and Jim that felt very forced However, I m really glad I finished this book, if not simply for the fact that it is based on a real historical event.What I liked 1 Fictional story set during a real event Ruta Sepetys does this really well in Salt to the Sea and Between Shad [...]

    8. I was fortunate enough to dine with Caroline in March for our Ottawa Blogger Meetup While there, she spoke with us about her upcoming book Unspeakable It is an historical fiction novel about a shipwreck of the Empress of Ireland This shipwreck actually happened after the Titanic and had many casualties It is one of the worst Canadian Maritime disasters in history but it often gets overlooked It was amazing to hear about all the research and details that went into this book It is told in the nar [...]

    9. This book pretty much hits you hard in the feels It really is the perfect blend of sadness and heartache but there is enough suspense to keep you through it I literally did not put this book down one day when I was only halfway through and finished it in a couple hours I have to say I honestly did not have high expectations going into this novel, but it was so wonderful to read I also did not know anything about the Empress too so I did actually did some research because I was pretty lost at the [...]

    10. I m am not a fan of romance books, but I actually really liked this one One of the reason s I liked this book was because the whole story wasn t about loving someone It had some romance but it had other things in it like friendship, kindness, sadness The beginning of the book started off a little bit slow and it seemed like all the main character, Ellen, would do is complain and cry I understand that she just survived a horrific event, but in the book her grieving dragged on and on Another thing [...]

    11. Ellie Ryan is a survivor of the Empress of Ireland Bearing with the guilt within her, she always seems to ask herself why is she still alive Ellie has faced many problems before boarding onto the ship and after as well The question is, will she solve all her problems I picked up this book because it was a Red Maple Nominee for this year Also, many of my friends have read this book and said it was really interesting So I decided to give it a try I finished this book because it kept me going There [...]

    12. This book had me turning the pages to see what was going to happen next The interest level was high for me because I live near the city of Rimouski, Quebec, Canada and I have actually visited the Empress of Ireland site I would certainly recommend this to other Canadian high school teachers as the book is easy reading and deals with a few interesting details in history I felt like there was going to be a sequel and my student that read the book before me did too.

    13. Well written, but found the ending predictable Scenes around the disastrous sinking of the ship were captivating The characters didn t capture my heart.

    14. Good YA read which brings to light a little known Canadian tragedy the sinking of the Empress of Ireland in Quebec A little bit love story, a little bit coming of age, but I love that it doesn t try to tie it up into a nice and pretty bow at the end.

    15. The story of the Empress of Ireland is one worth telling, but the writing editing in this book was a mess I caught consistency and historical accuracy issues, and in general, the writing seemed wooden and overwrought.

    16. Mystery, suspense, and a touch of romance bring to the surface events from the past in this delightful story that unfolds through the life of Ellie who deals some very difficult circumstances.

    17. On her first voyage as a stewardess aboard the Empress of Ireland, Ellie is drawn to the solitary fire stoker who stands by the ship s rail late at night, often writing in a journal Jim Ellie finds it hard to think of his name now After their wonderful time in Quebec City, that awful night happened The screams, the bodies, the frigid waters She tries hard to tell herself that he survived, but it s hard to believe when so many didn t So when Wyatt Steele, journalist at The New York Times asks her [...]

    18. I was immediately attracted to the synopsis of this book, especially when I found it to be centered around the sinking of the Empress of Ireland, which suffered the same tragedy as the Titanic What s , the setting takes place between Liverpool and Quebec City, which I ve visited many times and is situated but a couple of hours from where I live.Ellen Hardy, heiress to Hardy Estate is innocently caught in a bad situation that costs her everything She s finally sent to work as a stewardess on the [...]

    19. Unspeakable is one of those books that stays with you even after you finish the last sentence This is not only the story of one girl who s life is turned upside down, but it is also the story of a boat load of people that had to witness and survive a horrible tragedy And I think that duality of perspective was what made me fall in love with this story.The way this story pans out is very much like the titanic and the way the movie portrays the story of Jack and Rose A reporter wants to report on [...]

    20. I d never heard of the RMS Empress of Ireland nor her foundering in the St Lawrence River in May 1914 that took with it 1012 souls, so this was not only an entertaining read it was also informative Ellie Hardy was a good heroine to follow She s young, fallen and shamed and enrolled in employment as a stewardess on the Empress by her maiden author aunt Geraldine She s the window into what life was like on the ship and also what the horror the night it sank was There s also the not small matter of [...]

    21. Of the 1477 people who sailed from Quebec aboard the Empress, 1012 died 840 passengers and 172 crew More people died then on the Titanic.I was pleasantly surprised when I finished Unspeakable This is a Red Maple nomination When I heard the summary, my first reaction was Oh man, this book sounds horrible and stupid Can love survive the greatest tragedy , really Ugh.I completely regret that now I actually like this book now.So Unspeakable happens two years after the Titanic sinks in 1914 Just off [...]

    22. I was excited to read a story half set in Canada and half in the UK and on top of that it was written by a Canadian author, what was not to like How about the fact that it was one step short of completely plagiarizing the story of Titanic Or the inclusion of every Victorian literary clich ever to exist Or its complete and utter predictability Well, I was so disappointed that I got angry Angry that I spent time reading this story a complete knockoff from a very popular movie that came out in 1997 [...]

    23. An Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review Quotes pulled from the ARC may be incorrect and may be subject to change.I didn t really know what to expect with Unspeakable since it sounded so much like Titanic The story set up was just like the movie as well since the story is being narrated and it unravels all at the same time.The beginning reminded me so much of the Titanic Different classes coming together and falling in love I had no clue where the love story came from and [...]

    24. Caroline Pignat brings to life a historical tragedy and fictional love in Unspeakable Similar to the story in the film Titanic, but undeniably original, this novel captures the fear, pain, and survivor s guilt from the shipwreck of The Empress of Ireland No, the waters didn t take me that night, but I was drowning, still, in survivor s guilt pg 176 The friendships and romances are memorable Learning about Jim s perspective gradually as Ellie reads his journal is heartbreaking as we see the lost [...]

    25. Unspeakable was the kind of book that kept you interested and in suspense for the most part of all of the book.It had a good pace from scene to scene, making you want to read and At the beginning it did get confusing and felt like it was going to be a very predictable, but as it went on it proved me wrong The beginning was just trying to develop the characters and how they were feeling before it gets exiting I enjoyed the ending but, I didn t feel it was as satisfying as I would have liked May [...]

Unspeakable kept you interested and in suspense for the whole book It had a good pace from scene to scene, making me want to read and At the beginning it did get confusing and felt like it was going to be predictable, but as it went on I was proved wrong The beginning was just about developing the characters before it gets exiting I enjoyed the ending but, I didn t feel it was as satisfying as I would have liked Maybe just a few pages could have changed that This story is unique because it is [...]

    27.

    28. Like many people, I had never heard of the Empress of Ireland, or the tragic story of it s sinking just two years after the Titanic In many ways, the story of the Empress is tragic than that of the Titanic, because it had the means to save everyone on board, but circumstances prevented most of the lifeboats from being used.But UNSPEAKABLE not only covers the sinking of the Empress, it also tells the story of Ellie Hardy, how she was lost, and found herself through tragedy, love, and loss The ro [...]
