If you've read a CGP guide before then you'll know what to expect, here - lots of cheerful, breezy cartoons, digressions, speech bubbles, etc... not necessarily the kind of stimulus to excite your most able students, perhaps, but a godsend if you need a snappy narrative/character introduction and have only a passing acquaintence with the text.

This, however, falls slightly short of expectations. It's okay on the basic narrative, but contextual support seems thin on the ground and there's some thematic territory that's barely covered.

Social class..? Barely mentioned.

Gender issues..? Scarcely a whiff.

Historical context is a bit weedy, too... a Higher level Eng Lit GCSE answer would benefit from reference to topics that simply aren't mentioned here. Postmodern perspectives, anyone..? Evolution, the animal-human continuum and the Beast metaphor..? Religion..? Alas, CGP 'toons just don't cut it at this level. Hey-ho.

By Bluecashmere. TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Mar. 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book seems to be aimed mainly at the lower end of the ability range. It relies on jazzy presentation including, unfortunately, pictures throughout from the poorer of the two available films. It should prove helpful to those who are the victims of indifferent teaching, but is, of course, no substitute for close knowledge of the novel - an exceptionally fine novel in my view. The essentials are here, but they are available online at no charge. The BBC site has none of the colour effects but more depth, and the material is organised in a much more accessible form. This will do no-one any harm but I rather doubt that it is worth the outlay.

Overall the product is pretty good, it gives a good grounding to each character etc... but for a higher overall grade in any exams you need to be able to link quotes up and do some deeper thinking, and out of the box ideas. A good book, but you cant learn everything out of a textbook, you need to some of the work your self.

I ordered the 'used' copy and just so others are aware this is not the same as shown (it's an older version).
For me that's what I wanted, so I'm very happy.
But, if you will be taking your exams 2017 then order the newer version - the exams are changing for those starting year 10 September this year (2015).

Classic, these are the best help guides around. Recommended by my son's tutor these guides are accessable for all levels.I now have them in the college library.

In excellent condition for a used book so couldn't be happier with supplier. My only reason for marking down 1 star is that now GCSE specifications for English have changed (for those taking in summer 2017) the CGP guides have been updated to reflect this. This is the older version and front cover is not illustrated as shown in picture. Have looked on the CGP site and inside a book and there are some minor changes in the publication so this version will still be good as a revision tool.
