This revision guide was beneficial to my studies, it contained the exact information that i required and helped me prepare for my ASexaminations. I would recommed these York notes for anyone who is sitting the AQA ASEnglish Literature spec B examinations

It's alright. As far as A2 revision goes it covers the bare basics and does the themes really well. However it is lacking detailed analysis of all themes and characters, and doesn't touch on the settings of the novel much despite them being key details. It does the trick for an introduction into the novel, but doesn't really do it for me when it comes to analysis. A little disappointing but still good value for money

I purchased this book on behalf of my wife, who teaches English to her 'A'-level Grammar School pupils and she is highly impressed by the approach of the author, which enables her students to gain invaluable additional insight into numerous aspects of F. Scott Fitzgerald's fictional story. Excellent value and highly recommended *****

Most of the content wasnt in much depth as i would have preferred it to have talk specifically about language form and structure in each chapter, rather than talking about the basic plot. some stuff was useful but the majority of the stuff wasn't particularly relevant or helpful for me.

As said,

This is a good revision guide, giving a comprehensive and thorough approach to summaries and character descriptions.
However, it lacks in detailed thematic responses/analysis.

Nonetheless, great book which covers the basic motifs and themes of the book.

My daughter used this as a revision aid for her recent AS and she said it was brilliant. It clarified certain things and supported her original understanding so she knew she was on the right track!

It's really helpful without and doesn't overload with information! If I do well in my A-levels, I owe it to this book!
