“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

“This is a good quality guide. Some of the tasks are very innovative and original and would encourage even the most reluctant student to engage with the text. Clever and engaging tasks are given… The pupils will enjoy this and it will aid their understanding.” – M Lloyd, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
