Where the World Ends

Where the World Ends is, generally, a captivating book with an interesting plot that is followed through, however I did find some parts slightly boring. Despite this, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
It is set in Scotland in the year 1727 and follows a teen called Quill (or Quilliam) when he goes to the Warrior Stac to hunt birds with several other boys, all quite young and most younger than himself, and a few adults, including a "Minister" Cane.
The author does write a lot about Quill and his apparent sweetheart, Murdina Galloway, but for a while, the book is about the boys hunting birds and getting oil and staying out of danger on the precarious cliffs. Then, when the hunting season is over, no one comes to collect them and instantly they all conjure theories as to why.

To conclude, I think Where the World Ends is an entirely enjoyable book, although it does drag on from time to time. It is suitable for most ages, maybe 10+.
