“Fantastic. From the opening pages it is focused on levels and the new AOs. This is like a breath of fresh air for a teacher trying to make their way through the new GCSE specifications… It was very student friendly without being over the top. Little ideas such as creating a facebook timeline are a good way to research context without boring them. The teacher notes were very helpful… Thank you – a fantastic resource for the new specification.” – R Goulds, HoD and Independent Reviewer

“A very detailed and thorough resource. Very appealingly presented and rich with activities. I really liked the variety of extension and differentiated tasks. The chapter by chapter activities would ensure that students had a very detailed knowledge of characters and plot… to make interesting interpretations of the story. There was a plentiful supply of key quotes – this is particularly useful now that we are preparing students for the closed book exams. Would I purchase this resource? Absolutely. It would be an excellent companion to teaching this novel and would ensure that students knew the story well.” – B Jennings, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
