Where the World Ends

I couldn’t put this book down; the writing is absolutely breathtaking and the story is utterly gripping. A tale of resilience and courage set on one of the more inhospitable places on earth - a sea stac off the coast of St Kilda, this book tells the story of a group of men and nine boys stranded for nine months when their return boat fails to come and collect them, not knowing what has happened to the outside world. The author describes the despair and desperation of the characters with exquisite skill, which left me gripping the book as tightly as the characers cling to the sheer rock face of their place of exile. Wonderfully atmospheric and tense, with an amazing plot twist.
