A-level nea help!! :(

Hiya! I need to start my NEA coursework where I need to compare two books, as soon as possible but cannot seem to find a book to compare to 'A Dolls House' by Henrik Ibsen, the themes I was leaning towards was society differences and the restriction and belittlment of woman, but am open to suggestions.
(AQA exam board) Any suggestions please!!
Would be appreciated!! Xx

Thank you!! How about 'the grapes of wrath' but 'alice in wonderland' seems shorter and more of a classic and interesting read lol! And I'm doing spec A. I went with A Doll's House and Wide Sargasso Sea. Let me know what one of your books you're planning to do for NEA so I can see what I can suggest to compare it with hun:smile:

Hi! I am currently writing one on A Doll's House and Wide Sargasso Sea as well - Do you have any suggestions for a proper title? I wanted to do something on identity crises in both of them but I don't really know how to best phrase a title. That would be so helpful! xx

I'm doing my AQA NEA too and I also really want to complete it by September!!
I'm thinking of comparing A Dolls House and The Unbearable Lightness of Being and I want to explore the theme of freedom and question too what extent you can be free in a political society, Identity crisis and also Female and Gender expectations but I don't know how to combine it all together 😭😭
If you have any ideas please let me know.

Did you do well in your NEA? I am also doing wide Sargasso Sea and a dolls house, tips would be helpful, or even your actual NEA would be good
