Very good "coming of age" story. The storyline carries very clearly and consistently, keeping the reader's interest throughout the book. I thought the book was well written, giving a real sense of the youthful optimisim and disappointment that are true-to-life. It also, unexpectedly, opened up in beautiful prose at various points throughout the book, which added to the storyline and enjoyment of reading this book.

Arguably, a goal of any coming of age tale is to make it fresh, both familiar and unfamiliar, or more accurately, familiar, yet new, all of which is to say that Birch Hills @ World's End by Geoff Hyatt does much of this exceedingly well. And freshly.

It is not often I read a book in one sitting, but Birch Hills @ Worlds End was such a great read, it was worth a bleary eyed morning. Although I have little in common with the subject matter, Geoff Hyatt's way of story telling draws you in and keeps you emotionally invested in the characters, beyond the last page. My teen years are a distant memory, but Geoff brought all of it back, the family, the clicks, the insecurities, the friendships, and that wonderful feeling of intense longing for someo ...more
