1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating and sometimes mehhhhh! (Updated) 28 May 2014
By Gina J
I like doing crosswords, keeps that bit of the brain which goes sludgy, a little more active. I do one a day. This book is OK, and it has the solutions, because I have to say the clues are less accurate than I would expect. They are what I call 'round the corner clues' that is, a little subjective and sometimes not very well informed. But I use the book, and when I get really fed up searching for a clue, I can check the answer and say 'Oh for goodness' sake' or something close but not printable.

Update:I have downgraded this to 1 star because
1. The clues are often misleading. I'm about to give up at number 136 of 240 puzzles.

2. The editing is variable. Clue 'Shaw' resulted in the answer 'beach'. And what has REALLY annoyed me is that the clue 'whiskey' (note, with an 'e') results in answer 'Scotch'. Now as 'any fule kno' (thank you Molesworth), whiskey is Irish, whisky is Scotch. No matter how many people think it doesn't matter.

3. Proofing lack resulted in a complete absence of the blend 'fl' resulting in interesting clues like 'oating ice' (iceberg - you work it out!)etc etc.

Not what I expect and certainly Pan Books, you've let me down on this one. And I could work up a Trades description complaint calling the collect 'Quick'. Anything but at times.....

And now I've ploughed my way through to nearly number 200. I don't give up. Latest aberrations.... clue 'Rattan', answer 'Rattan', clue 'Church motet' answer 'motet'. And today - clue 'Sword declaration'. WHAT??? Finally checked the answer 'Affidavit' Ah, 'SWORN declaration. Thank God my life didn't depend on getting this grid right.

It's pretty bad, and I'd ask for my money back, but having done nearly 200 of the 240 in this book, I'd be pushing it.

BUT I WILL NEVER EVER BUY THIS SERIES AGAIN, EVER.
