This book contains fifty original puzzles guaranteed to please solvers at all skill levels. Each puzzle has a theme which spells out a quote or proverb which may either amuse or inspire. Sometimes you’ll identify the quote and use it to complete the crossing words. Other times the quote won’t reveal itself until you have finished the rest of the puzzle. Either way, you will be challenged and entertained. The puzzles do not require the solver to know obscure authors or random Academy Award winners to fill the grids successfully. That’s not to say that the puzzles are easy, though. There are plenty of misleading clues, double meanings, and trivia questions to keep you on your toes. But overall, a good general knowledge and an appreciation for wordplay are all that is required to enjoy the book.
