Woah, you didn't do a novel for GCSE? Depends what the question/book is. Give us more information!

well first is it set chronologically/[in themes - can't remember the word right now sorry an example is Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee]
In volumes/continuous?
How was it originally published - Dickens was in segments, hence why there are so many twists and turns and cliffhangers - he needed to keep people reading week after week.
Is it written from a narrative perspective/in 1st person?
That's how I'd start out.

Thankyou thats real helpful and yeah i did do a novel for GCSE-we did Lord of the Flies, but never got told to do anything on the structure of the book as there were like two set questions we got giving options on, and i think im going to do the essay on Tess of the d'ubervilles tomorrow, we didnt get given the exact question-we have a bit of a rubbish teacher lol she just told us to prepare to write an essay on the structure of a novel we enjoy-sorry for the extra long post (:
