  • A Reader's Guide to R.L. Stevenson & 'Kidnapped'

    A Reader's Guide to R.L. Stevenson & 'Kidnapped'

    $4.00
    In my view, the greatest Scottish novel ever is Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped. Rich with Jacobite history, full of superb descriptions of landscape, this novel gives one of the best depictions of friendship I know. I’d rank Kidnapped in my list of ten favourite novels of all time. Come and discover its treasures with me.

  • A Reader's Guide to Jean Rhys and 'Wide Sargasso Sea'

    A Reader's Guide to Jean Rhys and 'Wide Sargasso Sea'

    $4.00
    Jean Rhys started Wide Sargasso Sea 1939 after reading Jane Eyre, a book she’d read when young but had not revisited for many years. She felt the tale badly needed re-telling from the Creole perspective. In 1966 Wide Sargasso Sea was published and it won the prestigious W.H. Smith Literary Award the following year. I do hope you enjoy this different and intriguing novel.

  • A Reader's Guide to Henry James and 'Washington Square'

    A Reader's Guide to Henry James and 'Washington Square'

    $4.00

    Washington Square is a moving novel. Its power comes from Henry James’s study of the human mind and its workings. One of Henry James’s easiest books to read, it is a fabulous depiction of wealthy life in New York in the middle of the 19th century. It has always been my favourite Henry James novel. I hope you enjoy it too.

    A Reader's Guide to W.Somerset Maugham & 'Cakes and Ale'

    $4.00

    There are not many novels that can be described as having charm, but I think this is one of them. I love Cakes and Ale! I so enjoy its devastating critique of the literary world. Maugham’s pen could be acidic, his wit penetrating, and he could capture a character in a few well-chosen words.

  • A Reader's Guide to Samuel Butler & 'The Way of all Flesh'

    A Reader's Guide to Samuel Butler & 'The Way of all Flesh'

    $4.00
    The Way of all Flesh has to be one of the most ferocious novels ever written, and is a superb indictment of hypocrisy and the evils of fake piety. Its energy, bite and attacks on so many aspects of the 19thC mean that you may never view Victorianism in quite the same way again after reading it.

More about the Literary Reader’s Guides

In these entertaining and detailed monographs, Susannah Fullerton introduces remarkable authors whose legacies are still felt around the world. Susannah tells you all about a writer’s life, analyses the themes and characters in a well-known novel, lists film versions you might like to watch, suggests titles for further reading and gives you her take on the work. She even includes 8 questions for discussion in book groups, or just to get you really thinking about the book.

Literary Reader’s Guides are fully illustrated in colour, and are about 25 pages in length. They are a download product and you will receive an email with the link to view, download or save your Reader’s Guide after completing the purchase.

Susannah will even discuss the book with you herself at her Book of the Month page.

Book of the Month Club works like this: If you take out an annual subscription, each month you read a fabulous novel that Susannah has carefully selected.

Nobody chases you up to check that you’ve read it, and you can postpone the reading to any time that best suits you.

On the first day of each month Susannah sends you a Reader’s Guide about a novel (or short story) which contains lots of fascinating information about the author, what influenced the creation of that particular story, and a discussion of the important characters and themes.

Check out Susannah’s Book of the Month book list or order a Literary Reader’s Guide now.

Susannah has published many articles, books, monographs and spoken word CDs, most notably, several about Jane Austen’s work. Unlike so many research books, Susannah’s works are definitely intended for a popular readership.

Treat yourself, or buy a thoughtful gift for a reading friend.
