Reviews

I have always loved reading, yet struggled with The Woman in Black as I found it sluggish and overly descriptive of what I thought to irrevelant material. However, I then read the book through again at home using this guide and found I understood it perfectly. This was due to all the seperate sections the guide contained, as it has: - A chapter by chapter walk through of the novel, including tips on improving your grade and key quotations - A section on each character individually and why they are important to the novel - A section on plot and structure and how Susan Hill uses it to make the novella spooky - A section on theme As well as this, the guide includes a section at the back to study just before the exam, including key words and how to tackle the question. I found this part especially helpful and hope to have pushed my As to A*s. If I do, it is all down to this book. Amazon reviewer A comprehensive guide through the book, chapter by chapter with helpful questions at the end of each to aid revision. Very good as a stand-alone resource but superb when used in conjunction with the teacher pack. Excellent value for money, both for use in school and for private revision.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

Rachel Bridgeman

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
