Hey, is anyone doing Restoration by Rose tremain for their AS English Lit and lang course, it's just that I can'y find any revision or analysis material and it's getting realy annoying, 'cause there's revision stuff for almost every other novel except for Restoration. So do you know where I can find revision material for Restoration? Ohh, and how did you find the book?

Hey ! There are probably no replies cause no one I know in any other schools do this book. I do it for English in College and it is so bad - mainly because there is nothing online to do with revision, it was actually a really unknown book written by the author - a clear bad choice from both my teacher and yours
Anyway, as soon as she gives me notes for it I will post them x

Relationships between merivel and pearce: M=merivel. P=Pearce.
the heart/ chaper one: they learn together. P influence over M, shows their history together, p consice m knows it.
Ps death: shared historry. M is M not robert.,Deep trust (P admits he is scared)
after Ceilia incident M hears Ps voice. : knows p vlues has interniled m (m can hear/ think what p would what when he is absent.) p is present tho physicaly not there. p is like ms conscience, m conscience in ps voice.
p at ms wedding: turns to p in time of need/ crisis.
M present P as comic and rediculus but unreliable natarive voice so we dont seem to agree.
P is there when M prays. (p is a god send?)
Ps voice is : less flashy, religios tone, plainer than m.
P hides his love for friends, harsh on his friends for their own good. criticul to people.
