Hey everyone
Just wondering how many of you are studying this book for their English Literature GCSE exam. How are you finding it? Personally, it's become one of my favourite books.

I did it for GCSE (doing a levels now) and it was really great. V difficult to get into, but it improves a lot once you get just past halfway. My advice to anyone who's not enjoying it: persevere, it gets better and is a good book to get a good grade on cos there's lots to talk about

I did it for English GCSE.

I really enjoyed it, it was a really, really good book.

I got a C in English Lit, which turned out to be my highest grade in GCSE, and the poetry bit sure didn't help!

To Kill a Mockingbird gave me my highest score, then. Just adding to how awesome it was.

I'm doing it too. As someone said above, takes a little while to get into, but part 2 is really good.

I loved it, miles better than "Of mice and men".

That's really good. I know what you mean it's just an amazing book.

Studied it for my English lit GCSE four years ago. On the whole it's a good book and doesn't destroy your soul when you write essays about it

Am I the only person who didn't enjoy studying this book? I just felt like it was being ripped apart and over analysed when we did it for GCSE I preferred being able to read it just for myself, the messages were still clear enough. . .

To be fair I hated by English lit classes because the teacher just stretched it out too much...and English lit GCSE exams in general like to over-analyse I definitely preferred reading it by myself though

Same here! I couldn't stand English Lit lessons, I mean I adore reading, but I never even finished the book before the exam, I read the first few chapters, then the trial and the last few :rolleyes: I did a question on how the title was linked to the whole book, it was so over analytical, I really doubt authors appreciate 16 year olds pulling their work apart for every message possible :/ It's more of a personal read
