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 themeAs 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.

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. * Amazon reviews *
This literature guide was perfect for my daughter to get her through her GCSE. She struggled with answering questions and 'reading between the lines' to find the model answers. This guide seemed to do just that for her. Its explanations were clear and concise and made life so much easier. * Amazon reviews *
