If you want a gentle introdction to Kakuro then this is fine.

The short 'How to play Kakuro' section is a useful basic introduction but clearly written by someone with more knowledge of Sudoku. Why omit the couple of pages it would take to list the possible number combinations? Also several methods unique to Kakuro are simply not mentioned.

This was my first Kakuro book but generally the puzzles were just too simple. There are supposedly 4 levels of difficulty but the only real changes are the grids increasing in size. The main problem is the widespread use of unique combinations e.g 11 in a block of 4.

All but the last ten or so could be done in a few minutes without even resorting to pencil marks to combine options information across the grid.

Two of the stars are for the Sudo-kuro hybrids. An interesting variaton similar to the Killer Sudoku puzzles. The step change in difficulty was enormous and provided some genuinely interesting and satisfying challenges.

I love doing kakuro puzzles and my partner bought this book for me thinking these would be difficult and would keep me happy for some time. Not so. The puzzles start with the smallest, simplest grids and go on to larger but not much more difficult ones; the hardest puzzles are the sudokuro hybrids in the last section which are, of themselves, interesting but not what I was looking for. I was extremely disappointed, not least because I thought this might be something to get my teeth into - I actually did the first 50 puzzles in an evening, no meat there then! If you want something to test yourself with I suggest you look elsewhere as this isn't the book for you.

As a bit of an addict, I expected Killer Kakuro to be a least a little challenging. The first 50 puzzles took me less than an hour. Very disappointing - completely mis-titled.
