Firstly, a couple of previous reviewers have reviewed the novel and not these revision notes. These are an aid to studying the novel and, as such, are not definitive and need to be read hand-in-hand with it. My daughter is just starting the novel for her A Levels and has found this to be a useful aid in helping her to understand the fairly complex themes contained therein. The tone of the guide is clear and easy to understand, with some good suggestions for wider reading (something that has to be done as part of her syllabus) and the addresses of web-based information to help with essays and assignments. Good value for money, I would recommend this book to any GCSE/A Level student or anyone who wants a better understanding of the novel.
