    I have borrowed the handmaid’s tale from my college library and it is quite useful! Not sure on any other texts though

    I would give it 8/10, it had very detailed uses of language, characters in the novel and narrative features. I haven’t do my AS yet, just trying to get a bit ahead with revision.

    I got 99% for English A Level. Yes they're okay, but probably just as good as spark notes. The best is shmoop in my opinion and that is for free! I also try looking for youtube videos on the text you're studying. I did an essay on the Handmaid's Tale that got full marks. I can send you my notes if you like
