How many times have people read the books? My teacher says we have to read them all 4 times each but I have only read 3 of them twice and on the 3rd read of the other.

I've read over them about twice and listened to an audiobook of them about three times! audiobooks are definitely much easier to get through and digest.

1 hour per question is what I do. Probably maximum ten mins planning on B and C then maximum 15 on the extract in A.
Anyone do Blake, Kite Runner and/or Handmaids?

I think Blake will either be something to do with children/innocence or maybe like sexuality/love, I would really like religion though

Yep, I do all three

Not sure tbh, that one could literally be anything and idk the themes of all the books so idk what is applicable to them all. They've never done anything related to gender or religion for section C to my knowledge.
