Book Description

5 Aug 2002
Anyone who regularly tackles challenging crossword puzzles will be familiar with the frustration of unanswered clues blocking the road to completion. Together in one bumper volume, Bloomsbury Crossword Lists and Crossword Solver provide the ultimate aid for tracking down those final solutions. The Lists section contains more than 100,000 words and phrases, listed both alphabetically and by number of letters, under category headings such as Volcanoes, Fungi, Gilbert & Sullivan, Clouds, Cheeses, Mottoes, and Archbishops of Canterbury. As intersecting solutions provide letters of the unanswered clue, locating the correct word or phrase becomes quick and easy. The lists are backed up with a comprehensive index, which also guides the puzzler to associated tables - e.g. Film Stars; try Stage and Screen Personalities. The Solver section contains more than 100,000 potential solutions, including plurals, comparative and superlative adjectives, and inflections of verbs. The list extends to first names, place names, technical terms, compound expressions, abbreviations, and euphemisms. Grouped according to number of letters - up to fifteen - this section is easy to use and suitable for all levels of crossword puzzle. At the end a further 3,000 words are listed by category, along with an index of unusual words."

3.0 out of 5 stars Why both? 11 Aug 2006
'Crossword Lists' is extremely good and separately so is 'Crossword Solver' but although it seems a good idea having the two bound together, doing so makes it too bulky and difficult to handle. Personally I would prefer having two books. I am on my second copy because tha first one came apart at the junction of the books.
Separately I would give each 5 stars !

I bought this for my 90 year old aunt who doesn't have a computer. She did not seem too impressed with it but will use it as best she can. She does enjoy doing crosswords but sometimes needs a little help.

The package came timely and in good shape.
