    Make sure you know the books well and are aware of the themes and symbols used throughout it.

    I would try and write notes on each character and theme there is and include quotes that you are able to analyse and write about in detail. Writing essay plans on questions that you think could come up would also be helpful.

    Sorry that wasn't a very detailed answer. If you have any questions feel free to ask
