Only got a few chapters in. Stuck me as too forced in trying to the sort of thing children like.

Simply LOVED it. Taking after Charles and Mary Lamb, McCaughrean tells beautifully illustrated versions of the stories of ten classic ballets. This was given to my sister (a dancer) when she was about 9; strangely I, who cannot dance to save my life, was the one rapt by it. To this day, I have a particularly strong love of the ballets "The Firebird", "Petrouchka" and "Gisele" because of this book. Love it.

This tale of a small group of boys and men stranded on a remote island off Scotland's coast in the 1700s, is much more than an adventure story. The party of fowlers has been left on the island, as they have been every year, to harvest birds and feathers for use on the larger island where their small community resides, living meager lives of subsistence. When the boat to ferry them home fails to arrive, the superstitious party begins to think that the world may have ended in a catastrophic or celestial event, and they have somehow been forgotten. Geraldine McCaughrean brings life to the birds (the island's only inhabitants) and the party's grueling work of survival, and also to the mental struggles each person faces according to his own personality and beliefs. Some similarities can be drawn to both the cruelty and devolution of [Lord of the Flies] and the more uplifting [Frederick] by Leo Lionni. Where The World Ends offers a bit of both. The hunting group are are simple, quiet, and practical folk—no strangers to harsh and cooperative work. McCaughrean's descriptive passages imbue their thoughts and surroundings with an emotional liveliness that fully immerses the reader. She is a master storyteller. Based on a true story.… (més)
