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 am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
