    Very well written story about an historic event most of us give no thought to - the laying of the Atlantic cable. After many failures, the completion of the laying of the cable was - in the mid 19th century - considered one of man's greatest feats. It was considered as great an accomplishment to those alive then as the landing of a man on the moon was to current generations. The story is fascinating and it will engage you from the first page.
