Do you have to study this? Or did you choose it? I have this novel sitting on my Summer Reading List!

I don't think there are any Literature pointers for this. Just read it, and analyse it with a specific perspective; thematic, stylistics, characters, narratology, etc etc.

I did my comparative essay on it at A2. I'd say keep an eye out for use of humour, both sides of the nature/ nurture debate, the contrast in descriptions of Kevin and Celia and Eva as a potentially unreliable narrator. Honestly I really enjoyed studying this book so I hope you will too!
