'Lots of in-depth analysis. Great activities that can be used directly with students.' S Wilson, Teacher of French and ZigZag Education Customer
'A fantastic resource, which can be used as a teaching tool or as a revision guide for students.’ V Fournet, Head of MFL and Ind. Reviewer
'It is a comprehensive step-by-step analysis of the book that will benefit students for their examinations. The author has teachers in mind and offers practical suggestions such as when to start the book during the two-year course and how to break it down, which make it less daunting for planning. Well done to the author!' H Hardy, French Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
'A meticulous study guide which I very much enjoyed reviewing. The chapter by chapter section offers a very wide variety of motivating exercises, with a good choice of standards, so that all students are challenged. By the time the student reaches the After section, developing the themes, characters and finally leading to the essay writing, their knowledge of the novel should be excellent.' C Hicks, Examiner and Ind. Reviewer
