This review is from: A-level Notes for Ian McEwans "Enduring Love" (Jane Gibson's 'A'-level Notes) (Paperback)
After discovering a disapointing lack of revision guides for Enduring Love, I ordered up this one. As a student, I can say the bland layout and constant stream of small print text really did nothing for me. It didn't help me take anything in at all. Instead of laying out points and explaining them, this book asks questions into different aspects of the novel. This is all well and good, until you realise that you don't infact know the answer. So then your a bit lost really.
If your looking for something to help you pass an exam, I wouldnt advise this, unless your will to research every point thats made. If your a teacher and want new ideas for a lesson plan, go for it.
Saying all that, it is the only help book I could find so maybe i'm being a bit harsh. Doesnt compare to York Notes etc though.

Good for you, and grovelling apologies for being such a cheeky bugger in my previous post. I should've taken your review to heart, actually... I've just bought the Gibson book, and you're quite right, it's a throughly dreary affair. Hey-ho..!
