“An engaging way through the text. The AOs could not be more explicitly addressed. The pack encourages close reading and analysis with a variety of activities, both written and spoken with lots of prompts. A great time-saver for those teaching the novel for the first time.” – A Baiden, A Level Teacher, Independent Reviewer
“Extremely good stuff. From opening of the resource it is clear that it was well researched. The comparisons to other texts focus is brilliant and will encourage a love of reading for our Literature students; the author uses a good range of well known texts to do this and it is very focused on the new A – Level assessment objectives.” – R Goulds, HoD, Independent Reviewer
