Very disappointing

The Deep - Alma Katsu

Having read and enjoyed The Hunger by Alma Katsu I was looking forward to The Deep, an old fashioned ghost story occuring aboard the doomed luxury liner Titanic. Katsu chooses well documented historical events and attempts to inject a supernatural element around approaching disaster. I found The Deep to be a very uninspiring read, a story that moved backwards and forwards in time, and the ghostly apparitions when they occur, towards the end, did little to add any excitement or enjoyment to a very mediocre read.
