    I'll see your Jane Eyre and raise you Wuthering Heights. :yeees:

    Rockerchick - have you tried sparknotes? If you're struggling to get through it, they might have the notes on the main points that exams tend to cover.

    Yeah I second that. Sparknotes have proved really useful to me in the past. Just go to www.thespark.com and click on spark notes, find the ones on lord of the flies and they'll have chapter summaries and notes on the main themes and characters etc that you can print off for free. I use them for all my english literature texts, especially the Shakespeare ones.

    Yep i did all three of those my lucky self, probably due to the fact that we both live in stoke! Inspector calls is actually interesting compared to the other two.....
