5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide 14 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
York Notes has once again succeeded in providing an excellently succinct, aware and analytical book. I thoroughly recommend this product for anyone needing some 'inspiration', or just to develop your ideas. Excellent chapter summaries included, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brotherly love 31 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
For students studying George Orwell's seminal dystopian novel, this is a must-have book. Aimed at A-level or beyond, it is also suitable for GCSE students targeted 'A' or above. Containing revision sections on character, plot, structure, language, and symbolism, this study guide also has practice exam questions and contextual information and links. Good value for money and vital for exam success in 2010 and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reminded me why I love Orwell! 24 May 2011
Format:Paperback
Having read 1984 several years ago and then deciding to focus on the novel for my A2 English Literature coursework, this guide helped give a more analytical view to a book I'd read only for pleasure. I in fact focused in on Bertens' belief that "we tend to assume that our thinking is free" when in fact our "minds aren't free at all, they only think they are" and even in this depth the guide was still extremely useful. Helped me get full marks anyway! I would recommend this to any A-Level and undergraduate Literature (and indeed Language) students.

5.0 out of 5 stars It saved my behind 15 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wasn't in the mood to read 1984 since I didn't have to make a book report but I had to complete a test, I just read this book and I got a 20/20 HIGHEST score in my class. It's smaller than 1984 and it makes a lot of links with society so you no longer have to do that. (That book was study buddy no1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 12 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The messages in this book are still relevant today. I doubt theres much I can say that hasn't already been said in other reviews except that this book is an all time great and will always stay with me.

In terms of using it as a study tool, it was fine, no big sections of notes or anything but it was cheap and cheerful.
