anyone got any novel recommendations for the portfolio part of the advanced higher French course?? its a comparative essay between two novels (or any french literature I think) about the same theme but the only things I've seen so far that are for French learners are L'etranger, Au revoir les enfants, le petit prince and le petit Nicolas, and I don't want to do an essay that is cliché. any suggestions of French books that would be easy to compare and aren't too difficult to read?

Sorry you've not had any replies yet...I've moved this over to Scottish Qualifications, and hopefully someone will be able to help

I did advanced higher french this year and I did l'étranger and l'hôte by albert Camus. I found L'étranger really easy to read, the language was pretty simple and it wasn't too long whereas L'hôte is a short story of around 40 pages and I found it sooooo difficult to read. However, in saying that I compared the two based on the theme of the role of choice in absurdism, and i really enjoyed doing it.
