Product Description

Product Description

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, Crossword Lists and Crossword Solver provides 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. when looking for 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacing an old friend. 24 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace the 1982 version I had, which I have used almost every day since I got it, but which is now literally disintegrating, (despite my efforts with the Selotape over the years,) as it has been used so regularly. The new version is of course even better, with more comprehensive lists and also some new categories. I am very much enjoying finding my way around this new book and discovering the new features it contains. I have always regarded my original purchase as one of the best book buys I have ever made. It contains such a wealth of easily accessible information, which I have used during the process setting Trivia Quiz questions, as well as for the more usual everyday crossword solving purpose. I am sure that this new book will more than compensate for the demise of my old 'friend'.

By Kerrie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am really pleased with this book, originally I was just looking for a thesaurus and came across this on my search. What a lucky find! Not just for crosswords this is an excellent source of info...listings from Nobel winners to Kings and Queens. I will now be ordering more copies for friends and family!

5.0 out of 5 stars Use it regularly 6 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had a copy of this book that I bought 20yrs ago and it was falling to pieces. I bought this hoping it would have been updated and indeed it has. I use it for helping to solve crosswords but it goes much further than that and, when I was setting a quiz for a family quiz this Christmas I was able to use it to find the answers! Very very useful

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Useful 6 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My wife regularly uses the paperback version of this book and I wondered whether a Kindle version would be more convenient when in our touring caravan. I loaded it onto an old Kindle and also onto a Kindle Paperwhite so that I could learn how to use it. As you might expect there are no instructions and it helps if you already know how the contents are organised. Using it on a plain old Kindle was pretty difficult, but once you have worked out how to do it the Paperwhite loaded one works very well indeed.

Bought this - really looking forward to out-shining my wife at crosswords. Unfortunately, weeks later, I still have not fathomed how to use the Kindle version.
