Review on ‘the Scarlet letter’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne

I read this novel a few years ago as a friend had recommended it and I loved it that much I decided to write my A Level English coursework around it. It’s a classic novel that is definitely a part of my ‘must read’ list! It’s a romance novel with an historical twist as itContinue reading “Review on ‘the Scarlet letter’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne”

Review on ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ by Harper Lee

I read this during my second year at University (can you see the theme appearing, I promise I do read outside of education!) as a part of the American South module that I studied. Now, whilst the themes that are studied are very prominent both in the time it was written and in today’s society,Continue reading “Review on ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ by Harper Lee”

Review on ‘Midnights Children’ by Salman Rushdie

(Despite the absolutely adorable feature image, this book has nothing to do with dogs) Once again, I was introduced to this text through my studies at University, who’d have thought an English degree would entail reading so many books!? Anyway, although the plot to this text is fascinating and explores the rich history of India,Continue reading “Review on ‘Midnights Children’ by Salman Rushdie”

Review on ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ by Khaled Hosseini

If you’ve read my other reviews you’ll know that I love Hosseini’s work. I discovered this book after reading ‘The Kite Runner’ and ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’. I virtually read it straight after reading ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ and although it’s another heartbreaking and well-written text I was left somewhat disappointed. I’m not sure ifContinue reading “Review on ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ by Khaled Hosseini”

Review on ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ by Khalid Hosseini

If you’ve read my ‘about me’ page, you’ll know that this book is my favourite! I’d been meaning to read this ever since I studied Khalid Hosseini’s ‘The Kite Runner’ for A Level English but I never got the chance until I’d finished my studies at University. I’d already really enjoyed reading ‘The Kite Runner’Continue reading “Review on ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ by Khalid Hosseini”

Review on ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini

If you’ve read my review of ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ you’ll know that I find Hosseini’s work both powerful and heartbreaking. ‘The Kite Runner’ certainly fits that description too! As suggested in my previous review, Khaled Hosseini uses his work to portray the history of Afghanistan and explores the traditions and cultures that make theContinue reading “Review on ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini”
