Student reviews

This was a joy to study. When given a choice of literature to study, you want to read everything; such is the quality of the experience. I have consolidated my love for the fantastic and found a new true love in fairy tales. The material is so engaging that even with little time to study, I gained an OU distinction through pure passion for what I was reading and studying.

I really enjoyed this module. The materials were excellent and the book choices varied. I loved studying Far from the Madding Crowd and was pleasantly surprised when I started to read more and more on the war after reading Undertones of War and Memoirs of an Infantry Officer. The audio materials were so helpful and the tutors and forums were of the highest quality. Fairy tales were a joy,as was Sir Gawain but Hotel World was not my cup of tea at all. This is what I love about the literature modules, there is something for everyone. I highly recommend this module.
