Just to clarify my previous comment about this losing the intimacy seen in the previous book: there is no loss of intimate detail in the character development. It's more that "Shipbuilder" was like a cozy cottage filled with beautifully crafted furniture. "Bridgebuilder"'s larger scope is like a vast warehouse with a few pieces of beautiful furniture in it.

Still definitely a good book.

Very good, although "Shipbuilder" was much better. The author does an excellent job of making us care about individual characters. The story in "Shipbuilder" is confined to the complex but narrow scope of people involved with the Titanic, and so the detailed character development matches the scale of the action. In "Bridgebuilders", the story is more sprawling. The characters are still very well-developed, but we lose a bit of the intimacy.

It's definitely a good book, but Shipbuilder was even better.
