Excellent value. This edition is twice as thick (400 crosswords) than most DM Quick Crossword books so if limited for space (if for hand luggage ) opt for the 200 crossword editions

Overall as expected .... but some repetition of words already and I've only done 20 crosswords.
Perfect for a quick 10 mins mental excercise before dropping of to sleep at night.

By Julie D TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 29 Jan. 2015

Still in the honeymoon period with Daily Mail Crossword books - this is the second volume I've sampled. I am not a fan of the newspaper so haven't ever done them direct from the paper and the Daily Mail imprint had rather deterred me from buying them. I have been hooked on Times 2 crosswords - and would recommend these to anyone who is a little fed up at how easy the Daily Mail ones are as the clues are rather stiffer but not too hard. Looking for an alternative as I'd worked my way through most of the T2 books, I began with Daily Mail Book 4. Book 2 is very similar in terms of the style but I think there are more repeated words so far than in Book 4. Practice - as with most crosswords - makes perfect and I find myself rattling through the Book 2 crosswords in, at best, less than the time the ads on terrestrial TV take to run. This makes me feel - albeit briefly - pretty good about the state of the old grey matter. These really are the quickest crosswords I've ever completed - but they aren't hugely challenging. Great to pick up and put down through the day, I've bought two more Daily Mail crossword books since acquiring Book 2 and will very likely work my way through all the books in time.

I do not know of another source of amusement that offers so many, many hours of light mental workouts, as does The Daily Mail Big Book of 400 puzzles. The puzzles, themselves are within the achievement range of most of us - with a little bit of hard thinking, and ever so occasionally with resort to a thesaurus but rarely without resort to looking in the back of the book for an answer.

Great for long journeys, holidays and the like, in fact any time that either the TV or those round you cease to occupy your attention. If you allow say 15 minutes per puzzle, then you have 100 hours of fun here......over 4 whole 24hour days which for the cost of the book works out at probably the best value on the market.

My wife was doing a crossword and was really struggling so I had a look to see where she'd gone wrong...
1 down was a 5 letter word and the clue was "Eggs on."...
Correct answer "Goads"
Her answer: "Toast"

(not really but it finishes off on the 'crossword' theme)

Living in a foreign country,and speaking for the main part in a foreign language, you get to the stage where you can niether remember a word in French or English, so I do at least one crossword puzzle every night before going to sleep to keep my mind intact. Each time I order a new puzzle book through Amazon....keeping my Ryanair baggage light on my return flights, and knowing that each time it is such an easy process to buy and recieve. Excellent service and in perfect condition. Thank you.
