This book is supposed to be in line with the Guardian Quick crossword series. However although they are in this vein there are a lot of the clues so far that are more in the cryptic style

This is an ok selection, but the crossword style is mixed, and often differs from those in the newspaper, moving into cryptic territory too often.

this book contains a load of junk. the product description claims that these are puzzles from the Guardian, but I'm skeptical. why aren't they numbered like they are online? i think it's because they're a bunch of random, terrible puzzles. the clues are absolute rubbish. i know you're thinking that i'm pissed off because im no good at these, but this isn't the case (i hope). when you discover the answer to a hard clue, you're supposed to go, "Ohhhhh. OK", but instead, I (and all of my friends) go, "WTF? that makes no sense at all..." We all very much enjoy the Guardian Quick One in the newspaper, but this book just sucks. Hugh Stephenson, consider taking your name off this. or reply to my review or something. what's the deal here?

Why these are "The Guardian" crosswords when they're NOT out of the Guardian.
I gace two at Xmas & both recipients found them a lot harder & not as clever/fun as the Guardian Quick.
The Guardian's always quick to point out other companies' sharp practises but they seem to think this is OK?

Read a review of this in the Observer and was intrigued. Was not disappointed by the book itself as it reads like a journal from a friend.
